Hello everyone,

I am creating a game in XNA C#, and I am currently creating the jump function. But for some reason it won't work?

My Jump() is triggered when pressed W. And my Gravity() is triggered about 55 times a second.

C#
/* Is the player jumping? */
public bool Jumping = true;

public void Jump()
{
    if (Jumping == false)
    {
        Jumping = true;

        for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++)
        {
            if (!Colliding(0, i))
            {
                this.PositionPixelY -= i;
                CalculatePositions();
            }
        }
    }
}

public void Gravity()
{
    if (!Colliding(0, MovingSpeed) && !Jumping)
    {
        this.PositionPixelY += MovingSpeed;
        CalculatePositions();
    }
    if(Colliding(0, MovingSpeed))
    {
       Jumping = false;
    }
}


Edit: Also, what happens is, when I jump once my character gets stuck with no gravity pulling it down. Sorry I always forget to say what goes wrong.

Well one of the causes is that I did not write:

for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++)
{
if (!Colliding(0, -i))
{
this.PositionPixelY -= i;
CalculatePositions();
}
}

Okay the problem I was having is that it won't go down once we jumped.
This is normal because I am only telling it to go down once we're no longer jumping.
However, we won't be jumping once we reached the ground. A simple solution would be adding a second boolean like so:

C#
public void Jump()
{
    if (Jumping == false)
    {
        GravityBool = false;
        Jumping = true;

        for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++)
        {
            if (!Colliding(0, -i))
            {
                this.PositionPixelY -= i;
                CalculatePositions();
            }
        }

        GravityBool = true;
    }
}

public void Gravity()
{
    if (!Colliding(0, MovingSpeed) && GravityBool)
    {
        this.PositionPixelY += MovingSpeed;
        CalculatePositions();
    }
    else
    {
        Jumping = false;
    }
}



Thanks Codeproject once again for letting my mind having a bit of peace by uploading this problem, and I sorted it out a bit later.
