How do I press multiple keys down

  • Gah.. this seems such a stupid question, but i gots to bare the shame and ask it.. i get it how you set a key press to do something, but how do you get an action by pressing two keys at the same time?

    what im trying to do is that say i press down, my player starts walking in that direction, but say i press shift-down, the player would reverse and not turn downwards.

  • Add a second condition..

    right click event - add another condition

    on down pressed

    on shift pressed

    do stuff

  • Ah, since its you that answered.. i actually i was referring to the movement thing you helped me out before at the topic "https://www.scirra.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=147&t=130167&p=914512#p914512" , the thing works beautifully, but i cant seem to get it to move past the four main directions without making it flip out on me. I'd need all the eight directions to work.

  • It seems like only 6 keys can be pressed at the same time? (Using Construct 3) any additional key is not detected until one of the first 6 is released. Anybody has any experience on this?

    It's quite possible this is a keyboard limitation. For example, my SP4 can't recognize if I'm holding shift and press the left arrow key at the same time.

    Keep in mind this is hardware-specific (but can also be limited by software), and expecting users to hit more than two or three keys at the same time is outside of standard keyboard usage.

    There's a test app at the top of this article to see what your keyboard supports:
