Closing as not a bug, most keyboards don't reliably detect more than two keys held at the same time.

Odd that it detects it with right but not with left... @cesisco I will try it with my SideWinder keyboard which detects 20+ keys being pressed at a time due to anti-ghosting key tech. And see if I see the same issue.

@BluePhaze - even if you don't have the issue, you still can't really design games like this, because 99% of people have cheapo keyboards which don't support more than 2 simultaneous keys reliably. Most keyboards support odd combinations of 3 keys but not all combinations of 3 keys, due to the way the electronics in cheap keyboards works.

Ok Ashley thanks, maybe it's my crappy keyboard.But imagine i just have the platform behavior and 1 key to fire a gun(spacebar) this will happen again when you fire run or jump simultaneously, and this is not a odd configuration.cesisco2013-04-29 16:52:59
