    Default 2D game Jumping Help

    I'm programming a game and can't seem to find a way to jump, so could someone tell me the code for it or have a link to a good video?

    Well, its not that hard. I'll explain it in pseudo-code:

    - KeyEvent from user stating jump action
    - Get player coordinates
    - Add half+ of the gravity amount to the jump above

    So in your player class, have a method like jump() ?

    And as above, make sure you provide lots of detail about your question if you'd like to get it solved!
