G'day This is kind of a short question, but is there a limit on the keys DirectX detects? My character is walking northwest with the directional keys left and up, and I press space to 'shoot'. But it doesn't 'shoot'. And it dóes work with walking just north, south, west ór east. -Stenny

To the best of my knowledge this is a hardware issue having to do with the wiring in the keyboard, but I may be wrong.
Yup. It depends on your keyboard, amongst other things. The way keyboards are made, several keys use the same bits of circuitry, so they can't detect those same keys being pressed together.

Or something.

I bet if you try the same keys in another program you'll get the same result.
