Jumping: Setting Jump Z Velocity in Character Movement not working?

I am trying to set up my Character Controller to Jump when the ‘Space’ bar is released, and to set how high the character jumps based on how long the ‘Jump Key’ is held. Any info/suggestions appreciated.

This causes the player to just barely nudge upward. Doesn’t seem to matter what I multiply the ‘Jump Key Hold Time’ by for setting the ‘Jump Z Velocity’.

where do you set the “jump key hold time” ? if its value is 0 it wont work for obv reasons. if it doesn’t work maybe try launch character instead ?

Because this supposed to be inside function that is looped with timer, that’s why this is not working, because it is executed only once
