    [help]Combo Recognition

    Hey there!

    I have a character who can perform 6 different moves. With these moves you could perform a particular combo which can start from 2 hits to 15 hits. I've already got the combo names ready but have hit another wall... How would I go about putting this into practice?

    I would've thought an if statement checking if an array equaled a set combo, tested it and got negative results. I was hoping I'd get some Idea rather than making a huge list of ifs together and lag the game even more than it already is.

    Ty for listening...

    Stevz!

    Just use a string as buffer and add each pressed key to it and search it for combos... pretty simple to do actually.

    A key should have 3 states, released, pressed and toggled/held down. If a key is helddown it shouldnt give another input but be recognized.

    Guah! The vagueness in the OP is horrendous. Forgive me.

    Nevertheless, TY LeechmasterB. You sparked it and I do think it'll work.

    I had this in one of my flash folders, cant remember where I got it but I thought about using it on one of my projects, I dont even know if it works but it allows you to listen for key combinations supposedly
