So i started godot having no idea what the hell im doing then i found the pdf file of the tutorial and downloaded it:
Followed step by step learning functions and made the player node along with sprite and collision configuration, however when i reached the scripting part especially the "movement input i got an error message that i couldn't find a work around here is the code

#movement input
if Input.is_action_pressed("moved_left"):
vel.x -= speed
if Input.is_action_pressed("moved_right"):
vel.x += speed

I'm also having problems with the reset horizontal velocity as after i type

vel.x = 0 

I get another unexpected token error

If if will help here's an image:

"Unexpected token" is what you get when you try to run code outside a function.

Every line of code from line 20 down needs to be indented by one tab, so that it belongs to the process function.

"Unexpected token: Identifier:velocity"

Thank you, the doc must be old. It didn't give a reason or showed in images to double indent. Much appreciated
