HI everyone

Ive been experimenting with gravity in my project and with much input from others Ive managed to

add a jumping element, and now I'm working on implementing a double jump to the method but so

far Ive run into many brick walls trying to do so, and was hoping if anyone had any suggestions as to

how to go about doing it.

 

 

                                                                  Thankyou

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Methods I used are below

 

 

 

 

 

 

The jump method

void DudeGravity2(GameTime gameTime)
        {

            
            float treshold = 0.0f;
            float terrainHeight = GetExactHeightAt(avatarPosition2.X, -avatarPosition2.Z);
            if (avatarPosition2.Y < terrainHeight + treshold)
            {
                newPos = avatarPosition2;
                newPos.Y = terrainHeight + treshold * (float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds;

                avatarPosition2 = newPos;

                gravityVelocity = 0;// On ground so not falling. 



 
                 //jump  
                if (keyState.IsKeyDown(Keys.L))
                {
                    gravityVelocity = 1f;       // Adjust this value to control height of jump.  
                }







            }
            else
            {
                // Not on ground so must be falling.  

                //Add in effect of gravity on current velocity.  
                // m/sec^2  
                float g = -1.10f;
                gravityVelocity += g * (float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds;

                //Add effect of velocity to position.  
                newPos = avatarPosition2;
                newPos.Y += gravityVelocity * (float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds;
                avatarPosition2 = newPos;




                      

        }



The method I used to get the height of the terrain

(GetExactHeightAt)

 public float GetExactHeightAt(float xCoord, float zCoord)
        {
            bool invalid = xCoord < 0;
            invalid |= zCoord < 0;
            invalid |= xCoord > floorPlan.GetLength(0) - 1;
            invalid |= zCoord > floorPlan.GetLength(1) - 1;
            if (invalid)
                return 10;

            int xLower = (int)xCoord;
            int xHigher = xLower + 1;
            float xRelative = (xCoord - xLower) / ((float)xHigher - (float)xLower);

            int zLower = (int)zCoord;
            int zHigher = zLower + 1;
            float zRelative = (zCoord - zLower) / ((float)zHigher - (float)zLower);

            float heightLxLz = floorPlan[xLower, zLower];
            float heightLxHz = floorPlan[xLower, zHigher];
            float heightHxLz = floorPlan[xHigher, zLower];
            float heightHxHz = floorPlan[xHigher, zHigher];

            bool cameraAboveLowerTriangle = (xRelative + zRelative < 1);

            float finalHeight;
            if (cameraAboveLowerTriangle)
            {
                finalHeight = heightLxLz;
                finalHeight += zRelative * (heightLxHz - heightLxLz);
                finalHeight += xRelative * (heightHxLz - heightLxLz);
            }
            else
            {
                finalHeight = heightHxHz;
                finalHeight += (1.0f - zRelative) * (heightHxLz - heightHxHz);
                finalHeight += (1.0f - xRelative) * (heightLxHz - heightHxHz);
            }

            return finalHeight;
        }

The terrain I used is from riemers flightsim tutorial(link below)

when they press jump, if they are on the ground, set vy to initial upward velocity. else do nothing.

 

then simply apply gravity over time. they will automatically jump again when they touch the ground (assuming jump is pressed).

Thanks for the response Norm but I have one more question, is there a way to apply this

technique while in mid air like in such games as mario 64( I provided sample examples below)

 

 

                                                                 Thanks again :)

 

 

 

(Mario does a mid air double jump at about 21 seconds into the video)

 

 

 

here's a 2d version of the midair double jump

 

 

 

here's a 2d jpeg illustration. The character does a mid air jump avoiding the water

Problem solved I had much help from the link below

modified code

bool doubleJump; //logs whether the player has done a double jump yet 
 
void DudeGravity2(GameTime gameTime)  
        {  
            float treshold = 0.0f;  
            float terrainHeight = GetExactHeightAt(avatarPosition2.X, -avatarPosition2.Z);  
            if (avatarPosition2.Y < terrainHeight + treshold)  
            {  
                newPos = avatarPosition2;  
                newPos.Y = terrainHeight + treshold * (float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds;  
  
                avatarPosition2 = newPos;  
  
                gravityVelocity = 0;// On ground so not falling.   
  
                 //jump    
                if (keyState.IsKeyDown(Keys.L))  
                {  
                    doubleJump = false; 
                    gravityVelocity = 1f;       // Adjust this value to control height of jump.     
                }  
            }  
            else  
            {  
                // Not on ground so must be falling.    
  
                //Add in effect of gravity on current velocity.    
                // m/sec^2    
                float g = -1.10f;  
                gravityVelocity += g * (float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds;  
  
                //Add effect of velocity to position.    
                newPos = avatarPosition2;  
                newPos.Y += gravityVelocity * (float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds;  
                avatarPosition2 = newPos;  
  
                //jump    
                if (!doubleJump && keyState.IsKeyDown(Keys.L))  
                {  
                    doubleJump = true; 
                    gravityVelocity = 1f;       // Adjust this value to control height of jump.     
                }  
        }  

another way of doing the same thing separate from the dudegavity2 method

KeyboardState oldState; 
 
KeyboardState newState = Keyboard.GetState();  // get the newest state 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 if (newPos.Y <= 1f) 
            { 
 
 
                //jump   
                if (oldState.IsKeyUp(Keys.R) && newState.IsKeyDown(Keys.R)) 
                { 
                    doubleJump = false; 
                    gravityVelocity = 1f;      // Adjust this value to control height of jump.   
                } 
 
                else 
                { 
                    //jump     
                    if (!doubleJump && keyState.IsKeyDown(Keys.R)) 
                    { 
 
 
                        doubleJump = true; 
                        gravityVelocity = 1f; 
                    } 
                } 
                oldState = newState; 
 
 
            }
