    I want to make the strafing variable to be true when I press p and then i want the strafing variable to become false when I let go of p.

    Right now strafing becomes true when I press p but never becomes false.


    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. #pragma strict
    3. internal var animator : Animator;
    4. var strafing = false;
    5.  
    6.  
    7.  
    8. function FixedUpdate() {
    9.  
    10.  
    11.    
    12. if(Input.GetKeyDown("p"))
    13.     {
    14.         strafing = true;
    15.         animator.SetBool("strafe2", strafing);
    16.            
    17.     }
    18.     //the code below doesnt actually make strafing false!  
    19.     else if(Input.GetKeyUp("p") == true)
    20.     {
    21.     strafing = false;
    22.     }
    23.    
    24.    
    25. }
    26.  
    27.  
    28.

    Try GetKey instead of GetKeyDown. Try it making the else if just an else.

    Why are you using FixedUpdate() to control the player movement? You should put this code into Update().

    FixedUpdate() should be used when dealing with physics like Rigidbody.

    Also any *Down or *Up events will not work properly in FixedUpdate.
