Hi All,

Can anyone tell me why my Kinematicbody2d doesnt want to move up, I wrote the following code:

extends KinematicBody2D

export var speed = 200
var velocity = Vector2()
var direction = Vector2()

func _ready() -> void:

func fixedprocess(delta: float) -> void:

if Input.is_action_just_pressed("MoveUp"):
    velocity.y += 1

direction += velocity * delta * speed

There is no _fixed_process-function in Godot 3.X anymore, use _physics_process! Also make sure that you defined an InputAction named "MoveUp" or use "ui_up" (that will be available by default). Lastly, be aware that in Godot the positive y-axis points down, not up (like you may be used to from Mathematics). So currently your character will move *down* when you press "MoveUp", not up (as the name suggests).

Also when you post a question, please make sure that your code is formatted properly (each line has to start with 4 spaces, each additional 4 spaces equal an indentation layer). If you don't, underscores are interpreted as markdown and indentation is lost, which makes your script a lot harder to read for others trying to help you.

Thanq very much, it worked indeed.
Also Thanks for the tip to format the code properly!
