Yeah, but how do you indentify how steep a hill is on a matrix. The example they give is only on boxes and not on hills.

All you have to do is get ground height where your character is, just to the right of your character and just in front of your character. You should subtract them to get a (sort of) gradient:



Then from gradient values, you can work out which way your character should slide and how fast.

I made a program to do sliding. It might still be in the code snippet forum.
