Flash : Arrow keys are not detected?

Postby Karoum on Thu Aug 28, 2008 12:04 am

Hello, just installed Elyssa and so far I enjoy it very much. With a little tweaking it even plays most of my games flawlessly or very close. One thing though, I really REALLY love playing this Dance Dance Revolution clone on www.flashflashrevolution.com . It uses flash and you press the arrow keys instead of a mat.

My problem: I press the arrow keys but its as if I pressed nothing at all. This makes the game completely un-fun as you probably guess.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

I failed miserably to find anything about this (google was not on my side :))
Some more info please
Is it just this game or in flash in general? (Not that I remember you use key arrows in flash)

Every single flash application that uses the arrow keys will not work for me and I suspect this may happen to most people here too. Maybe this should be brought up in a dev. discussion when some work is to be done on Elyssa?

Had no problem in a game in miniclip
This is extremely hard to search for as you get all sorts of "false" hits Normally I find a solution within minutes but this one (and another :( ) beats me - and searching the Adobe site did not give anything...
It's no secret that we've had problems with flash lately (so has just about everybody else be it Linux, Mac or Windows...)
Clear the cache (this is a general advice when things go bad in a browser)
If that does not help you could try the advice here, even if you have not installed some flash lately

Just installed linux mint, triple boot wit ubuntu 8.04. Linux Mint doesn't detect de arrow keys within games, nor the space-bare. So i guess within games nothing is detected. In ubuntu 8.04 everything works fine.

Please help. Linux Mint is great.

Is it possible to downgrade flash. I understand that previous versions worked well.
