Hello dude i am confused in what is Input.GetKeyDown and Input.GetKeyUp and what is Private Var too and what means in &&
3A.Jumping – Make A Game – Brackeys

Sorry bad English xD

 var rotationSpeed = 100;
 var jumpHeight = 8;
 private var isFalling = false;
 function Update () {
 var rotation : float = Input.GetAxis ("Horizontal") * rotationSpeed;
 rotation *= Time.deltaTime;
 GetComponent.().AddRelativeTorque (Vector3.back * rotation);
 if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode.Space) && isFalling == false)
 GetComponent.().velocity.y = jumpHeight;
 isFalling = true;
 function OnCollisionStay ()
 isFalling = false;

GetKeyDown gets fired when you press your key, well… Down and GetKeyUp gets fired when it goes back up. Both are called only once as where GetKey gets fired as long as the key is pressed. Private var just says that the variable is well… Private it’s the same as writing only var but for some more clear. You do however need to write public var if you want your variable to be public

And a public global variable can be accessed from the unity editor or ‘seen’ by other scripts, meaning it’s value can be accessed but not changed (I think).

If it’s public it can be changed by any other script
