​I've loved doing this project with my students- they've come up with very creative ideas.

However, now that we are using Flash animate I'm finding that the code for making the character jump is not working- has anyone else experienced this or have any ideas as to why? It still works great if I open it in the older Flash.

I'm wondering if animate needs to import a module that allows the script to work? Or is the even called something different in Animate?

This was an awesome assignment to do with my high school and college students. I would love to know the code / steps to create a REPLAY button.
