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.

I'm just starting out with the CMM2, and I wanted a good keycheck method that doesn't rely on the typematic repeat.  This allows for diagonal movement, for example, and can be expanded for two-player games using WASD as well.

Here's my solution:

 print @(100,100) "   UP:" u_pressed
 print @(100,200) " DOWN:" d_pressed
 print @(100,300) " LEFT:" l_pressed
 print @(100,400) "RIGHT:" r_pressed

 for keycode = 128 to 131
   pressed = 0
   for key = 1 to 6
     if keydown(key) = keycode then pressed = 1
   if keycode = 128 then u_pressed = pressed
   if keycode = 129 then d_pressed = pressed
   if keycode = 130 then l_pressed = pressed
   if keycode = 131 then r_pressed = pressed
