stats of the keyboard

is there a way to get the state of the corrent key pressed? would make programming with keyboard steering functions much easyer!


Unfortunately this sort of functionality is not available on iPad. Desktop operating systems will distinguish between key-down and key-up, but iOS does not.

If you hold down a key, you should get repeated versions of that key. Is that the case? If so you could use the repetition of the key to enable steering and stop steering when the repetition stops.

ah, good idea!! though its a shame, it would be really great, because then there would be more space for the game if there wasnt always a steering menu, right? :slight_smile: but maybe the repeating-idea will help… lets see!
