    Hi, I remember that you could make an object stick to another following it with those variables, also spinning around it only changing some values in the step event. I remember all you had to do was establishing 2 variables in the create event and then two actions in the step event. Please help

    Legacy GM Crouching not working

    So, I've been making this game where I would like the player to crouch.

    (Solved)Is D&D good practice
