I don't have a PC, as it says I need that newer version of Game Editor to read the file, but if I had a character that was sliding, I have to create a way for it to stop, and the best way to do that is with a path finish, provided there was a path to get the character started.

Since I can't see what the game is like and what the intent of the sliding is for, I can only give some very basic advice:

Let's say the actor collides with something that cause it to begin sliding on a path.

Actor/Add Collision Event/with Any Side of Actor 2/Script Editor
Variables/change path/Event Actor/path/slideright (create the path when prompted)/Axis/x axis

Then, to stop that path from repeating and stopping:
Actor/Add Path Finish/slideright/script editor/
ChangePath("Event Actor", "(none)", X_AXIS;

That's the general idea anyway. You can add conditions to that through variables, but that gets a lot more complex to explain.
I would help more, but am very booked up with other projects including my own game editor game project. Best of luck! 8)

thanks man but i already did what u said but the path finish thing is not stopping the player at all and the player is not repeating the path
he jus keep sliding for ever , then i tried to make an actor at the end of the slide (by the way the slide is down hill ) and used angle fun- and directional_velo-
to make the player slide down to the actor and when it collides it should stop but again the same problem (i thing it could be from my draw actor code i usually animate my player from only draw actor without any key down or up ) , and by the way the angle way worked so good in another testing game with only ke right and key left with no gravity
i was thinking that some one can read my code and tell me what is wrong
an hey one more Q when the player is colliding the slide which side he is colliding (top or right ??) and do the phesical response affect the sliding ?? somehow ? cuz in a game wit no gravity (then no phisical response needed ) it works so great
