Side-Scroller question: Character pauses movement when pressing the space bar

I’m trying to create a simple ‘space invaders’ clone using the Side Scroller template. I’ve replaced the ‘jump’ action (space bar) with spawning a ‘bullet’ to shoot upwards. However, when I press space bar, the horizontal movement of my character pauses while the bullet spawns, then the character resumes moving. A copy of the blueprint is pasted in this message - can anyone please give me a hint?



You are spawning the projectile upon your ship and they collide. This stops the movement. Spawn the projectile in front and not upon your ship.

Thanks - that did the trick.
