I have the same problem: https://forum.unity.com/threads/say...er-asset-packages.1123051/page-9#post-8712252 Unfortunately, despite the fact that this is an official asset from Unity, they do not care about the bugs and de facto abandoned these assets. I made a bug report on this issue (thanks to the support person who helped me with this) but it still hasn't been fixed. Right now I can recommend solutions like this: 1. Buy a third party asset that fixed this issue. 2. Fix it by yourself. I tried, but I realized that it's easier for me to create my own controller from scratch, initially adapted to my needs. Perhaps because in my case a more specialized solution is required, and not just movement in two planes. YouTube is full of videos on how to create a character controller, just find the one that suits your project. 3. Switch to Unreal Engine where basic assets like this work as expected and they are ready to be used in real projects. Unfortunately UE Editor is not the fastest thing - Unity is still faster and more convenient for prototyping, despite all its flaws. Personal note. Since Unity lays off hundreds of employees it is unlikely that standard assets will receive fixes or improvements (because they are not a priority). So I don't recommend counting on them. Rely only on yourself or on third parties.
