Well, im making a game. Ive gotten the "character" to move left and right using the keyboard... but i want when you let go of the button your "character" slows to a stop... any help in this matter would be appreciated

instead of the arrows controlling the character directly, use them to set a speed value. like speed=10 or speed=-10 if the right/left keys are pressed.

then throw in some friction by reducing the speed by a small percentage each frame


and add the speed to the _x of you character
