Hello, world! This is Dr. COM WIZ. I am currently in the middle of mass game development, but have reached yet another road block!
While animation is in session in my game, there are some points where the user has to "Press this to do this. Press that to do something else." In my game, the user usaully has to hold the key, so I had to change it to "HOLD this key to do that." I am seriously serious! I tried to help that by:
1) Sticking lot's of IF INKEY$ statements, but too many will cause QBasic to act really funny.
2) Replacing the letter in the quotes with their ASCII code, but that doesn't work at all. Why, by the way?
So, how do I do it? How do I trap user-defined keys like "l" or ESC for instant response?
If you forgot how to do that, or if you just feel like answering another question, here is one: How do I make one of those menus where you use the arrow keys to scroll down the options?
This has been,
Dr. COM WIZ
PS Thank you and goodnight!
