This is probably really easy... but i cant get it to work. Here's what I need:
So when the player dies he plays an animation of him dying. My problem is when you press left or right my character gets up and starts running around. How can i disable keyboard input?

THANKS!! :D

Rather than doing it that way, I would be inclined to give your player a "state" (which could be closely related to the animation - you could actually *use* the animation Name if you wanted but it's a hack you might regret) - alive / dead / whatever as an instance variable, and only move when the player is alive.

To physically stop it working you can enable/disable the 8Direction behaviour (depends how you are moving your player)
