Pressing several keys

Post by Bogart » 5 Dec 2005, 18:15

I´ve a very disturbing problem with my keyboard. Sometimes I press several keys in a move and at exact the same time I need to change direction. But the mopo just keep riding in the same direction as before. I get sick of it! It seems to happen when I press brake. But I´m not sure. Anyone familiar with the problem? Is it possible to fix this problem?

//From a very :evil: and :( elma player :wink:

in school ihave the same problem, I solved it by changing space to V or any other letter. There is something strange with the space but i think its also a os based problem. on my win98 which i play on it floats like water but on my xp the space button laggs often

I think the problem resides entirely in the keyboard itself.

The problem is, i think, that you can't actually press 2 arrows + any other buttons at the same time with recent material. So, it would be logical that switching arrow keys to letters would solve the problem.

You can make a small test to verify what i'm saying. Hold left and right arrows in any text editing program and try to type some letters ( no letters appear in my case). Then, try to hold down two letters at the same time and then, press a third letter, or a fourth ( every caracter appears at least once, meaning all the keys were submitted to the comp ).

2 ways to solve that problem ( maybe more but... ) :

- Switch your arrow keys to any alpha-numerical keys.
- Plug-in your old keyboard ( mine which is like 6 years-old doesn't beep or anything with all arrow keys + all keyboard keys held down )

Teh arrow keys and some other keys, like space, take up more info teh than a normal letter key. It's raelly gay that its like that, but hey, the KB makers dont really care about teh ;(

Keytronic, the famous elma keyboard model. I had my old with which I could press easily 15 buttons with no problems. Then it broke down.

I bought one extra KeyTronic for reserve. Easily available in the second hand stores.
