Descriptive Problem Summary:
The dual key repeat feature (http://www.byond.com/members/ BYONDHelp?command=view_tracker_issue&tracker_issue=3208) has completely altered the way people attack in my game, for the worse. Note my game doesn't use any of the pixel movement functionality.
People attack in my game by moving rapidly while pressing a fire macro.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1. Press the following in quick succession.
5. Repeat 2,3,4 several times.
For a wall of projectiles to be shot, one after the other.
Sometimes the projectile isn't fired, or one of the movements mightn't go through and you don't end up moving where you expect.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? 90% of the time
In other games? Yes. Any game that is dependent on quick movement while using macros to attack.
In other user accounts? Yes.
On other computers? Yes - the few users of mine who have switched to the beta have all complained about it.
When does the problem NOT occur?
When you're not using 490.
