Well, maybe I am an idiot, maybe I'm wrong, but when I try to jump right-back it doesn't work, while other directions (back, left-back) work!

The character just doesnt jump.

That could be due to a problem that many older keyboards had. After a certain number of keys are held down, it doesn't send a signal to your computer when you press another key.

I forget the techincal reason why that happens. :x

That's the part that is weird. If you hold, for example, A, B, and C, then you can't push X, but you can push Y and Z. It's weird. There doesn't seem to be a pattern.

It happens to me and my keyboard is brand new (3 keys max or it beeps). Really annoying :S.

Yeah I have that beep also and if I press the shift key 5 times in a row within 3 seconds it gives me some stickky key message that interupts my game and I still havn't been able to turn it off. But I agree with the key limitations to keyboards. Exactly what kind of keyboard do you have?

To fix that, go into your Windows XP control panel, and open up Accessibility Options. In the Sticky Keys section, press settings.



Uncheck the box that says "Use shortcut", and that's it.

My last comp had an issue with the D key as well. I couldn't ever move backwards, right, and tele at the same time, and I think it had to do with the D key because it worked with A going left. It really is annoying, but you learn to get around it. It isn't an ESF thing, it's a ... some other thing. To test it, go to your desktop or to a word program and try holding S, D, shift, space, and something else. You *should* get a beeping sound coming from your computer after a little while because it can't process that many commands.
