How To Code Characters To Attack While Flying?

I was trying to code aerial attacks into my character Lilith while flying, but I am not sure how or what to add. I have asked this question before and got an answer but I could not get it to work and the answer was not informative. I have looked at some characters such as MVC2 Storm in order to get somewhat of an understanding on coding attacks into flight and I see that they put a changestate into the coding of the aerial attacks of these characters like this:

What must I add to make Lilith able to attack during flight? I appreciate any help anyone can give on this subject.

So I'm not going to go through all that and get into details because I'm lazy and I don't have to, but it's like this.

Step 1) Your entire CMD file needs to be set up so that all of your attacks for not flying have triggers specifically to prevent being used while flying.  Even if you have a move that is technically the same, it needs to be separated using completely separate code because...

Step 2) All of your flying attack states need to changestate back to flying, and not to idle.  Don't do some crazy ass variable checking to see if you are flying.  Just do the attack and go back to flying.  Every flying attack should have its own statedef.  Don't bother trying to make them share.

Step 3) Now you can add flying attack CMDs in your CMD file.  All of them need to have triggers that ensure they only activate when flying.

Don't do this ghetto thing of adding the commands to the actual statedefs.  It just makes it harder to troubleshoot any issues you have.

I have tried to set a separate statedef for the flying attacks. I did this below:

;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
;Jump Light Punch
[Statedef 600]
type    = A
movetype= A
physics = A
juggle  = 2
poweradd= 11
ctrl = 0
anim = 600
sprpriority = 2
hitcountpersist = 1

[State 600, 1] ;Swing Sound
type = PlaySnd
trigger1 = Time = 1
value = 3, 0

[State 600, 2]
type = HitDef
trigger1 = Time = 0
attr = A, NA
damage = 15
guardflag = HA
priority = 3
pausetime = 7,8
sparkno = S9103
sparkxy = -10,-58
hitsound = S5544,0                 ;Sound to play on hit
guardsound = S6,0
guard.sparkno = s9101
ground.type = High
ground.slidetime = 5
ground.hittime  = 5
ground.velocity = -4
air.velocity = 0,-8
yaccel = .6

[state 451,3]
type = veladd
trigger1 = var(3) = 1
y = -0.1

[State 600, 3]
type = ChangeState
trigger1 = AnimTime = 0
value = 460

;---------------------------------------------------------------------------

;Flying Light Punch
[Statedef 40007]
type    = A
movetype= A
physics = A
juggle  = 2
poweradd= 11
ctrl = 0
anim = 600
sprpriority = 2
hitcountpersist = 1

[State 600, 1] ;Swing Sound
type = PlaySnd
trigger1 = Time = 1
value = 3, 0

[State 600, 2]
type = HitDef
trigger1 = Time = 0
attr = A, NA
damage = 15
guardflag = HA
priority = 3
pausetime = 7,8
sparkno = S9103
sparkxy = -10,-58
hitsound = S5544,0                 ;Sound to play on hit
guardsound = S6,0
guard.sparkno = s9101
ground.type = High
ground.slidetime = 5
ground.hittime  = 5
ground.velocity = -4
air.velocity = 0,-8
yaccel = .6

[state 451,3]
type = veladd
trigger1 = var(3) = 1
y = -0.1

[State 0, ChangeState]
type = ChangeState
trigger1 = animelem = 5 && var(21)
value = 40006
ctrl = 1
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is for the CMND list

;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
[State -1, Jump Light Punch]
type = ChangeState
value = 40007
triggerall = !var(59) <= 0
triggerall = command = "x"
trigger1 = statetype = A && (ctrl || stateno = 40006)
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yet it still is not working. Am I still missing something?

Code:
[State -1, Jump Light Punch]
type = ChangeState
value = 40007
triggerall = !var(59) <= 0
triggerall = command = "x"
trigger1 = statetype = A && (ctrl || stateno = 40006) ;; nope

I'm assuming 40006 is your flying state, but this trigger is incorrect.  If statetype is A and you have ctrl, then you're jumping.  Wrong.  Don't allow flying attacks to function when jumping.  Don't allow jumping attacks to work when flying.

Have a triggerall that checks for the flying variable.  Pretty sure I saw one in there somewhere.  Every single attack in your CMD file should be checking for flight and only working one way or the other.

Trigger1 should just be something like "trigger1 = stateno = 40006".  If you want this attack to work in combos or be spammable, make more triggers to add that function.  If you have different states for moving around when flying, add those to your trigger as well.

I rewrote the trigger in the command to be this:

[State -1, Jump Light Punch]
type = ChangeState
value = 40007
triggerall = !var(59) <= 0
triggerall = command = "x"
trigger1 = stateno = 40006

However, that did not work, then I did this command below and it still did not solve the problem

[State -1, Jump Light Punch]
type = ChangeState
value = 40007
triggerall = !var(59) <= 0
triggerall = command = "x"
trigger1 = stateno = 40006
trigger1 = ctrl
 
Should I try a different trigger?

I don't know what you're using var(59) for, but that whole trigger looks really weird to me.  Try it without that line.

Also, I'm not sure if you actually have ctrl when in the flying state, so try without the ctrl trigger.  What I see above shows that statedef 40006 has ctrl = 0...

Straight up just try this and add triggers that you might need later.  If it stops working, then you'll know what the problem is.
Code:
[State -1, Jump Light Punch]
type = ChangeState
value = 40007
triggerall = command = "x"
trigger1 = stateno = 40006

I have changed it to that without adding anything to it, but for some reason it is not working and no aerial light punch is coming out. I do not know why.
