Edge 'Key down' bug - help with description for MS?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Aug 29, 2016 1:54 pm

I reported this odd Edge bug here:
key-down-events-with-a-physics-tilemap-can-fail-in-edge_t180804

@Unconnected reported a similar bug with the 8 direction behaviour that I could reproduce in a simple form:
viewtopic.php?f=146&t=181063&p=1063895#p1063895

Out of curiosity I switched a minimal capx to car movement behaviour and also platform behaviour. Both have the same 'key down' bug in Edge.

This seems to be a pretty fundamental fail with Edge that will affect many games and is not unique to the oddity I first reported.

@Ashley suggested filing a report to MS and I have since found what seems like a related (confirmed) bug already reported: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/m ... s/7979936/

I wanted to add to this bug report, or file a new, but am pretty computer ignorant and wondered if anyone would care to help to describe exactly the environment and problem observed. My lay description being "key events stick in html5 games"

Thanks for any more technically convincing descriptions.

I just posted a comment on the MS report linking to the C2 reports, that should be enough for now.

@Dankp3 Thanks for pointing this out. It saved me some time. I thought I did something wrong.

@Ashley Thanks Boss. Keep up the good work. I love this software.

I found another issue in Microsoft Edge. I don't know where to report or comment it to Microsoft.
I didn't want to make a C2 bug because I know it isn't C2 because it works properly in Chrome.
I did test it in Firefox, but Firefox just increases browser scale, and not the game scale.

I was having trouble in Edge with key press before, not sure if it has been fixed.
This is touch press. I am also had the same issue with mouse that I did with Touch.

Using
Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 15.15063
C2 247 (64-bit)

When using "Example:Touch - zooming"
that C2 comes with.

Edge sometimes has trouble detecting when an onscreen touch/Mouse ends.
If you touch/click the screen and slide down to the Debugger and remove the touch, it will keep the touch/mouse active.
I had 3+ different touch IDs in my debugger at once and wasn't touching my screen.
