Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Multiple input not recognized. [Likely solved]

Hi,

I'm working on the game in which player often holds down around 4 buttons at the time (movement along x-axis, movement along y-axis, rotation, action).

To avoid constantly reading keyDown, I'm holding their states in bools. Here is the screenshot of that (rather simple) setup.

THE PROBLEM: When I'm holding down 2 key, e.g. 'd' and 'e', clicking down 3rd key, e.g. 'w' is not recognized. However it works fine on its own.

Some combinations of 3 keys seem to be working too, but they are minority. More examples:

Hold 'd' and 'e', click '2' = works

Hold 'w' and 'e', click '2' = doesn't work

Hold 'a' and 'w', click 'q' = doesn't work

Hold 'a' and 'w', click 'e' = works

UPDATE: Anticipating some answers, I redone input from ActionMappings to InputAxis - the problem persists with exactly same behavior. https://imgur.com/y4fzOsx.png

UPDATE2: Apparently it's a keyboard issue. I downloaded utility to show keys pressed (http://www.dcmembers.com/skrommel/download/showoff/) - some combinations of 3 keys work while others do not. This explanation was suggested by /u/avik244.

Hey there, i think that is a known regular keyboard limitation, back in the day if you pressed 3 keys at the same time you would get a constant beep letting you know you can't do that. I believe mechanical keyboards don't have this problem.
