I CANNOT Press 7 Keys at the same time
« on: May 30, 2015, 08:42:55 PM »
Since O2Jam is a 7-Key rhythm-matching game, pressing whichever note combination is significant for a player's performance. However, (no need to provide an explanation why; Google is there :D ) some keyboard does not support simultaneous press up to 7 keys.



WHICH KEYBOARDS COMMONLY HAVE THIS PROBLEM?
  • Standard (common) USB Keyboards
  • *Very cheap keyboards
  • USB-Converted Keyboards (using PS/2 to USB converter)
  • **Your keyboard, if you have this problem



SOLUTION

Use a control configuration with modifier keys such as SHIFT.

Examples:

Recommended for Left Spacers (comfortable pressing Space Bar using Left Hand)


Recommended for Right Spacers (comfortable pressing Space Bar using Right Hand)


NOTE
These are just EXAMPLES. Feel free to configure what works for you.
If this solution does not work for you, try to buy another keyboard. This problem is MOSTLY COMMON in very cheap keyboards.

Another note though, take note of the word MOSTLY. It means it is common to many, not to all.

Hello, ill clarify some information. You will have the best chance to find a combination with spacebar if the keyboard is PS/2. Almost all USB keyboards will fail to either press 7 keys or 7 keys with spacebar (also with USB to PS/2 converter).

I do realize this has been mentioned above. But just wanted to add is as extra info :)

Also these as mentioned above will perfect to find out what combination will work.

not attempting any necromancy to bring back the post but, there are a lot of USB keyboard nowadays that supports up to 7 keys pressed simultaneously.
Mechanical keyboard has the best chance of supporting more than just 7 but it'll cost you quite a fortune.

I'm a reviewer myself and you can find quite a list of keyboard in my list here that supports up to 7 keys under USB:
