I am using an action mapper and everything works except the fact that the user is unable to hold down the button to do an action (rotate ship). So when the user wants to rotate his ship he must tap the right or left keys 10 times, instead of holding the button down. The following is the code for updateInput which is the first thing called every frame. Thanks -Brandon void updateInput(void){ DIDEVICEOBJECTDATA rgdod[10]; DWORD dwItems = 10; // Keyboard Input Only g_pKeyboard->Acquire(); g_pKeyboard->Poll(); if(FAILED(g_pKeyboard->GetDeviceData( sizeof(DIDEVICEOBJECTDATA) , rgdod, &dwItems, 0 ))){ MessageBox(NULL, "Get Device Data Failure", "Error!", MB_OK); } for( DWORD j=0; j<dwItems; j++ ) { switch( rgdod[j].uAppData ) { case INPUT_TURNLEFT: if(rgdod[j].dwData & 0x80 ){ rotateShip(0.5f); } break; case INPUT_TURNRIGHT: if(rgdod[j].dwData & 0x80 ){ rotateShip(-0.5f); } break; case INPUT_FORWARDTHRUST: if(rgdod[j].dwData & 0x80){ thrustShip(1.0f); } break; case INPUT_REVERSETHRUST: if(rgdod[j].dwData & 0x80){ thrustShip(-1.0f); } break; case INPUT_FIREWEAPONS: break; default: break; } } }
