Double Tap Dash
Authors: Zexion
Version: 1.0

Introduction

I needed a simple version of a double tap dash system for my game, so I decided to make one as basic as possible. It doesn't handle colliding with objects, or anything fancy like that. Just double tap to activate run, release to stop and walk again.

Features

  • Tap the same direction twice to run
  • Use $game_player.dashing to check if the player is currently dashing. (for events)

Script

# Title : Zexion's Double Tap - Dash
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
# Description :
# A simple plug and play double tap to dash system. This does not handle
# collisions with walls. Just double tap a single direction and run freely!
#
# New:
# Can use $game_player.dashing to check if the player is running or not.
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
# Compatability :
# Should be 100% compatable with everything. Including blizz ABS.
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
# Free to use in any project even commercially.

class Game_Player
  # Makes move_speed modifyable outside the class.

  # NEW - Added a state to check if the player is dashing
  attr_accessor :dashing
  alias zex_gp_dtr_init initialize
  def initialize
    @dashing = false
    zex_gp_dtr_init
  end
end

Instructions

Plug and play.

Compatibility

Should be compatible with anything. Even blizz abs.
