I have added the behaviors in the scene editors instead of directly on the actors since I was planning on doing more exampkes but later decided not to. Just open one of the two test scenes, and select the player actor. You will see the behaviors under the customize tab.
The reason it works now is that in the previous versions, i didnt take camera movement into account. This can cause issues since touch positions are all relative to the screen, instead of the game world so to speak.
Thanks for sharing! I really appreaciate it =)
