Movement, shooting and turning?

Ladicius 3 years ago • updated by TheMask321 3 years ago 3
Hi, I can't seem to shoot while driving (forward or backwards,) turning my hull (left/right) and while turning my tank. It's either moving and turning tank/hull left or right and it'll shoot, but not when all three other movements are in operation. Any help? Thanks!

Hello there,

This is a hardware limitation of your keyboard. Unfortunately, the only solution is that you must purchase a better keyboard that does not have this limitation.

To be more specific:
In order to save money, keyboard manufacturers often put many keys on the same "circuit" of sorts within the wiring of the keyboard. This prevents multiple keys in the same region of the keyboard from being pressed simultaneously. Sometimes it even prevents more than 2 keys at all from across the whole keyboard being pressed at once. Often the shift, ctrl, and alt keys are not within this limitation, so you can hold shift and press 2 other keys at once and it will still work fine.

Even high-end gaming keyboards often have a similar hardware limitation, although the cap is much higher so that it is unlikely to be reached during the normal course of gaming.
