    Is there any way to add gravity to a Vector2 value like you could in the old input system?
    Please, I really need this.

    That seems to work for a regular float, but doesn't work for a Vector2 which goes between -1 and 1.

    can Input Manager do gravity for analogue input which would yield a Vector2?

    If the input is analogue, I would expect the data to represent the input exactly.

    If you have a combined digital input I am only aware of new Input System having combinations representing several individual digital bindings, thus you could have a vector2 with each of its components being either (-)1 or 0.

    If the new input system can combine 2 digital bindings to a continuous value from -1 to 1 it might do its own gravity and sensitivity I am not aware of and neither know how to modify; but that would be a single value not a Vector2.

    Alright so, I know this is not ideal since it's doing the calculations every frame, but it works for now. Would love an official solution to be added in the future.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. private Vector2 moveVector;
    2. private float gravityX;
    3. private float gravityY;
    4.  
    5. private float inputAcceleration = 6f;
    6. private float inputDeceleration = 5f;
    7.  
    8. public void Move(InputAction.CallbackContext ctx)
    9. {
    10.    moveVector = ctx.ReadValue<Vector2>();
    11. }
    12.  
    13. public virtual void MoveInput()
    14. {
    15.     if (moveVector.x == 0)
    16.     {
    17.         gravityX = Mathf.MoveTowards(gravityX, 0f, Time.deltaTime * inputDeceleration);
    18.     }
    19.     else
    20.         gravityX = Mathf.MoveTowards(gravityX, moveVector.x, Time.deltaTime * inputAcceleration);
    21.  
    22.     if (moveVector.y == 0)
    23.         gravityY = Mathf.MoveTowards(gravityY, 0f, Time.deltaTime * inputDeceleration);
    24.     else
    25.         gravityY = Mathf.MoveTowards(gravityY, moveVector.y, Time.deltaTime * inputAcceleration);
    26.  
    27.     gravityX = Mathf.Clamp(gravityX, -1, 1);
    28.     gravityY = Mathf.Clamp(gravityY, -1, 1);
    29. }
