# [SOLVED] Player Scale Acting Up browsing

• Hello! I have a player where I need to scale them down to properly fit the size I need, and I also need to change their x_scale to make them flip. However If I set the overall scale before the x_scale, it results in the player being stretched outwards horizontally. If I put the overall scale AFTER the x_scale, the character remains small but does not flip directions. Here is the code I am using:

``````#This is the code that results in the character not flipping directions
#All necessary imports are present
#And yes, this is working off of the built in game tutorial example
def cmp(a, b)
return ((a > b) - (a < b))

def update_player(self):
g = gravity()
if abs(g.x) > 0.05:
self.player.x_scale = cmp(g.x, 0)
self.player.scale = (0.1) #scale comes after x_scale
x = self.player.position.x
max_speed = 40
x = max(0, min(self.size.w, x + g.x * max_speed))
self.player.position = x, 32
step = int(self.player.position.x / 40) % 2
if step != self.walk_step:
self.player.texture = walk_textures[step]
sound.play_effect('rpg:Footstep00', 0.05, 1.0 + 0.5 * step)
self.walk_step = step
else:
self.player.texture = standing_texture
self.walk_step = -1

max_speed = 40
x = max(0, min(self.size.w, x + g.x * max_speed))
self.player.position = x, 32

self.player.texture = walk_textures[step]

self.walk_step = step

self.walk_step = -1

• Nevermind I solved it by dividing the x_scale value by (in my case) 10 and now it works fine.

Internal error.

Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
