How can I make custom controls?

Hello,
I’m trying to make a movement that you can only go forward(w). How can I do this?
Thank you in advance.

*Edited added jump command
Create a local script inside of StarterPlayer > StarterPlayerScripts and name the script “ControlScript” then paste the following script

local usin = game:GetService('UserInputService')

local walkControls = {
	Enum.KeyCode.W	
}
local jumpcontrols = {
	Enum.KeyCode.Space
}
local walking = false


usin.InputBegan:connect(function(input)
	for i=1,#walkControls do
		if input.KeyCode == walkControls[i] then
			walking = true
		end
	end
	for i=1,#jumpcontrols do
		if input.KeyCode == jumpcontrols[i] then
			local char =game.Workspace:FindFirstChild(game.Players.LocalPlayer.Name)
			if char then
				local humanoid = char:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
				if humanoid then
					humanoid.Jump = true	
				end
			end
		end
	end
end)


usin.InputEnded:connect(function(input)
	for i=1,#walkControls do
		if input.KeyCode == walkControls[i] then
			walking = false
			local char =game.Workspace:FindFirstChild(game.Players.LocalPlayer.Name)
			if char then
				local humanoid = char:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
				if humanoid then
					humanoid.WalkToPoint = char:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart").Position
				end
			end
		end
	end
end)
local debounce = false
game:GetService('RunService').RenderStepped:Connect(function()
	wait(.1)
	if debounce ==false then
		debounce = true
		if walking == true then
			local char =game.Workspace:FindFirstChild(game.Players.LocalPlayer.Name)
			if char then
				local humanoid = char:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
				if humanoid then
					humanoid.WalkToPoint = char:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart").Position+char:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart").CFrame.LookVector * 35
					
				end
			end
		end
		debounce = false
	end	
end)

I don’t mean to be picky, but for me it had some studer and also I tried searching up and can you edit this to work please it seems to be more simpler?

local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local RunService = game:GetService("RunService")
local ContextActionService = game:GetService("ContextActionService")

local fowardValue = 0


local function onFoward(actionName, inputState)
	if inputState == Enum.UserInputState.Begin then
		fowardValue = 1
	elseif inputState == Enum.UserInputState.End then
		fowardValue = 0
	end
end


RunService:BindToRenderStep("Control", Enum.RenderPriority.Input.Value)

ContextActionService:BindAction("Foward", onFoward(), true, "w", Enum.KeyCode.W, Enum.KeyCode.DPadUp)

Sorry for being misleading.

wait()
local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local RunService = game:GetService("RunService")
local ContextActionService = game:GetService("ContextActionService")
local forwardValue = 0

local function onForward(actionName, inputState)
	if inputState == Enum.UserInputState.Begin then
		forwardValue = 1
	elseif inputState == Enum.UserInputState.End then
		forwardValue = 0
	end
end

local function onJump(actionName, inputState)
	if inputState == Enum.UserInputState.Begin then
		if player.Character ~= nil then
			player.Character:FindFirstChild("Humanoid").Jump = true
		end
	end
end

local debounce = false
local rs = game:GetService('RunService')

rs.RenderStepped:connect(function()
	wait(.01)
	if player.Character ~= nil then
		debounce = true
		local hum = player.Character:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
		if hum then
			local root = hum.Parent:FindFirstChild("HumanoidRootPart")
			if root then
				if forwardValue > 0 then
					hum.WalkToPoint = root.Position+root.CFrame.LookVector*200
				else
					hum.WalkToPoint = root.Position
				end		
			end
		end	
		debounce = false
	end
end)

ContextActionService:BindAction("Forward", onForward, true, Enum.KeyCode.W, Enum.KeyCode.DPadUp)
ContextActionService:BindAction("Jump", onJump, true,  Enum.KeyCode.Space, Enum.KeyCode.ButtonA)

Copy paste this script from PlayerScripts when you test the game, then place it into StarterPlayerScripts

Then, simply remove these lines from the script PlayerModule.ControlModule.Keyboard

Also, remove the same actions from this function (except for moveForwardAction), otherwise you’ll get an error

(you might want to keep JumpAction)
When you’re done, the code around here should look like this

I only showed how to do this with Keyboard because I have no idea how to do it with Gamepad/Touch Controls

Since I cannot test this right now I’m just wondering what fires this or is it already in the script?

This is Roblox’s internal movement control script, which you can edit. I’m removing the actions that bind the arrow keys to their respective moment keys (except for up/w)

If you’re feeling a bit extra spicy, you could make it toggleable by modifying the functions to check an attribute without removing the Context bind

local handleMoveBackward = function(actionName, inputState, inputObject)
	if not LocalPlayer:GetAttribute("AllowMovementOtherThanForward") then
		return Enum.ContextActionResult.Sink
	end

	self.backwardValue = (inputState == Enum.UserInputState.Begin) and 1 or 0
	self:UpdateMovement(inputState)
	return Enum.ContextActionResult.Pass
end
