I get the concept of making a table of keys pressed. I have gotten to the point now, that I can read all the keys that are pressed and set their value in the array to 1 indicating that they have been pressed. The only problem now is that I don't know how to see if the key is done being pressed or not. I need to know how to code a keyDown() function for this. (I am using Turbo C++ 3.0)
In case it helps any, I am making a modified clone of Asteroids with a two player mode. It is necessary that I can read both players' key commands. After all, what is the point of a space shooter if you have to take turns shooting each other? I have studied a few other people's code, but as I am pretty new to programming, I can't understand the code very well. If there is any way to put things more simply, please do so. Specifically, I have noticed a line that is quite similar in several programs. It looks similar to the following:
keys=(keyboard far *)MK_FP(0x40,0x17);
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer!
