all the demos I found apply energy (movement) to the rope with another object or gravity. I need to have a my character (which is finally working) be able to "swing" like you would on a playground swing. add energy through a left right motion that builds from a zero state and if motion is not applied it settles to that zero state. I tried adding impulse but as soon as I begin applying force in the opposite direction the character comes off the rope when I "turn" then the rope goes screwey nto moving in a way expected. I will admit having a little trouble understanding the physics.
What do I need to do to just nudge the rope and continue building energy for the movement?
EDIT: I should menttion the character is not normally a pshysics object I am shifting it to that movement only while on the rope. For whatever reason I was not able to use the platform physics I am instead using the static physic movement.
