you can try, im sure it will work

I believe you could just use the context Action service or just even MouseButton1Click also Guiobjects have events for taping, swiping etc.

but its not a gui that I am trying to have the detection

This is my problem:

as you can see i am constantly tapping and the animation wont play in the second video

show us your script, it works , if it doesnt you can get user input service

 local UserInputService = game:GetService("UserInputService")
  -- The parent of this script (a ScreenGui)
local touchScreenGui = script.Parent
  -- Create the GUI frame that the user interacts with through Touch
 -- events
 local touchGui ="Frame")
 touchGui.Name = "TouchGui"
touchGui.AnchorPoint =, 0.5)
  -- Fires when the touches their device’s screen
 local function TouchTap(touch, gameProcessedEvent)
 touchGui.Parent = touchScreenGui
 touchGui.Position =, touch.Position.X, 0, touch.Position.Y)
 touchGui.Size =,50,0,50)
  -- Fires when a user starts touching their device's screen and does not
 -- move their finger for a short period of time
 local function TouchLong(touchPositions, state, gameProcessedEvent)
 touchGui.Size =,100,0,100)
  -- Fires when the user moves their finger while touching their device's
 -- screen
 local function TouchMove(touch, gameProcessedEvent)
 touchGui.Position =, touch.Position.X, 0, touch.Position.Y)
 -- Fires when the user stops touching their device's screen
 local function TouchEnd(touch, gameProcessedEvent)
 touchGui.Parent = nil
 touchGui.Size =,50,0,50)
  -- Only use the Touch events if the user is on a mobile device
if UserInputService.TouchEnabled then

–using guiobject.touchtap:connect

I just have to modify this part:

if Input.UserInputType == Enum.UserInputType.MouseButton1 or --TapEvent then

I believe what you’re looking for is UserInputType.Touch.
