Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

"Bouncing" always reminds me of Sally and makes me [...] calling the Police:

But You are right, this is a particular point I am currently thinking about.

The speed does not matter, so this all can generally be slowed down.

I think (and that confused me about using the timer) that each trigger should be received and processed separately and there should be a pause between each, probably pulling some flags and calling different subroutines.

Edit: Forgot some "points"

Could be as simple as:



If ButtonPressed Then

  Pause 100

  If ButtonPressed Then
 
  Endif

Endif




What you don't want in this non-critical application is to make it so finicky that you're stood in the pouring rain, stabbing away, trying to get the timing just right.

I think this is some kind of ambivalent, on the one hand the "code" to push should be easy, so therefore the rhythm of something common (SOS or something like Darth Vaders Imperial March), but on the other hand you are right, if the timing is too finicky (nice word, I didnĀ“t know before in english   ) than this could be annoying for getting punished for each mistake and set back to start, could be too sensitive.
