I am making a game and I want to have the player travel forward and high speeds (turbo) when the player presses E but I want there to be a cooldown timer so you can't rapidly press E and go way too fast. I don't know python and I don't plan on learning it anytime soon. A solution with python would work, but I would really prefer one with logic bricks.

This is very easy to do. This is the same method you would use if you were creating a reload property for a gun. Create an integer property name Time that is always increasing as long as that property is less than 100. In this case, it is named time, Of course you could name it whatever you wanted.

enter image description here

Then have another property sensor limiting the keyboard's input so that it will only send a positive pulse when the integer Time is equal to 100 And E is pressed.

When using a system like this, you can hammer on the keyboard as fast as you want, but it will only turbo when the property Time reaches 100. and as soon as you turbo, The time property starts increasing until it reaches 100, where you will be ready to turbo again.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks this was a HUGE help. But is there a way I can make it so when the play is facing the opposite direction he will go that way? So I have it set to when you press E you will move really quickly along the +X axis. But I want it so when the player is facing left on the -X axis he will move that way. I cannot turn the player movement controller or the controls get inverted. I tried making a new object and having it track towards empties and attach the logic bricks to that but it did not work. $\endgroup$ – user13425 Mar 27 '15 at 16:53

  • $\begingroup$ Depending on how complicated your system is, You could just have a Boolean property toggle the direction of movement, and depending if it toggles to true or false, It would turbo different directions. - It would be easier for you to ask another question than for me to try to tell you how to do it in a comment :-) $\endgroup$ – X-27 Mar 27 '15 at 20:17
