I'm trying to make a platformer. I'm trying to figure out how to make my character jump. I have tried setting a direction variable (after I enabled physics on the room, the character, etc), and it does jump, but it spins, and falls weird. I just want a simple Mario jumping up or something.

I'm using Game Maker Studio 2 (drag-n-drop).

Look up Shaun Spalding on youtube(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XDcSXVUGsE).

I personally recommend you to learn the basics of code. It's more difficult than drag n drop but its WORTH IT.
