    Hello, I've been having a hard time getting the jump mechanic to work properly in my game (it would often apply the jump force twice or more), so I eventually updated the new input system and started using the WasPressedThisFrame method so that the jump force would be certain to be applied exactly once every time I press the jump button. The problem is that this method doesn't always detect that I pressed the jump button (it works maybe half of the time). I suspect that I need to specify which group my input collection system should update in, but I'm not sure which group that should be. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Here's an example system from Unity themselves using the new input system and DOTS together.

    Now I also read somewhere that the new input system and DOTS do not work well together in versions other than 2019.3. I cant find it anymore so I dont know if I just hallucinated it (staring at DOTS source code for long enough can do that to me). I personally am just using the old input system and a simple monobehavior script that directly modifies a singleton for the input for that frame. It works reliably and has never been a problem.
