    I’ve been testing the kit on my Apple TV and I’m using the Nimbus controller. Everything feels right except for the jumping. I realized why it feels strange. It’s because the jump happens when you release the A button, not when you press it.

    I’m looking at the code and trying to find a way to change it. Any ideas?

    Funny, I never even noticed. Just played again and still didn’t at first. Try this, in the GameScene_GameController.swift, around line 580, find….

    #if os(tvOS)
                        if (self.paused == false){
                            if ( gamepad.buttonY.pressed == false){
                                self.pressedJump ( playerBeingControlled! )
                        } else {

    Try switching false to true in the interior if statement .

    Thanks I will try that!

    I didn’t notice at first either. I was playing Horde and something just felt off. It took me a while before I realized why my jump timing was off.
