    using keyboard for movement - eliminating the slight pause

    As some of you may know, there is a slight pause after you hold in one key, so the computer knows wether to enter it in again or not. Once it decides you want tons of that letter in the text, then it rapidly speeds up. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to your URL bar and press and hold a, look for that pause.)

    My source code, which reads (translated): Upon holding in the <Right> key, _x += 2.

    I've noticed that same slight pause while holding in the <Right> key, and that offsets the movement by quite a bit.

    I would like a solution that gets rid of the pause and, most importantly, works for all computers (aka doesn't involve changing keyboard controls manually).

    Any ideas?
