how do i make a panda3d game playable

the most important part of a video game is being able to play it. i’ve googled it, i’ve looked through the manual, and i still dont know how to make a model/actor that you can control.

The short version is you bind keyboard keys or mouse control events to moving the camera, or moving a mesh the camera is parented to.

You could look at one of the sample programs that involve controlling a character, such as Roaming Ralph, or one of the many in the forums.
