does anyone know why this doesn't work:

holding down 2 keys (UP & RIGHT Arrow) and hitting the space bar repeatedly works fine. But when you do the same with the LEFT arrow the space bar key strokes are ignored?

It might be, I see no reason for it not to work, code wise.

Your keyboard isn't broken as such... it's just a lot of keyboards don't support certain 3-key combinations. Up + Left + Space is a common one.

thanks @ramones! I had no idea!

that combination is indeed one that doesn't seem supported on my keyboard.

so this means that it would be a limitation in my game.. some people may have a keyboard that doesn't support those 3 keystrokes... interesting...

I wonder if it's just older keyboards, because the keyboard I am using is from 2007, just because like I the way it types.. still someone playing my game would probably assume it's a game bug.. like I did! I wonder if that's why a lot of people use keyboard-mouse combos. My game is more suited for keyboard only.. so I have no idea what I will do to work around this..
