Hi, I am currently having trouble where I am trying to play the attack animation like any normal game where you just press the button and it plays the animation. At first, the animation wasn't playing at all, I fixed that, but then ran into another problem where it would play the animation continously while the character is moving either left or right ( I couldn't change directions).

Now I got it to move the character left and right, but the animation is still continuously playing.

Any Help?

Hey I have the same problem almost, but mine is worst. Instead my sprite freezes whenever I press the key that is supposed to make the sprite attack.

if Input.iskeypressed(KEY_E):
print("Attack is working")

this is my code. Is there anything wrong with it. Sorry if you expected an answer, I am like, a really big noob.
