Iam new to Godot and Im making a simple platformer while following a tutorial. Im trying to make the Player look left while going left and make the Player look right when going right. I used the same code he used in him video but when I start the game and press left or right button it puts me back in the script and says at the bottom: "Invalid set index 'fliph' (on base 'null instance') with value of type 'bool'. All I can make out of the message is that "fliph" isn't used to do that Im probably thinking that wrong. Im sorry if this question is stupid but Im very new to all this. Thanks in advance!enter image description here

The "null instance" error means that the thing you're trying to call flip_h on doesn't exist. That means sprite in this case. Check what value you've assigned to sprite, and ensure that it is a node that really exists.
