Summary0005290: Ctrl and Shift send the game into a Macro-like thing
DescriptionHappened 5 times already, 3 times with shift, 2 with ctrl. I was making long channels (so clicking one arrow key several times and then enter). Then, I would press ctrl or shift (for some other reason) and the game would start to register that last arrow key continuously (so Down continuously) UNTIL I pressed that arrow key again, only then would it stop.

It would then happen again next time I pressed Shift/ctrl. This would happen until the DF program lost focus (I click somewhere else on my PC). Only then would it stopped from happening.
Steps To Reproduce1. Click an arrow key several times.
2. Click ctrl or shift.
3. The games starts to register that arrow key an infinite(?) amount of times. (MIGHT happen, seems to happen randomly).

4. Press the arrow key (same as before) to stop it.
5. Click ctrl or shift (depending on which activated it before).
6. The game starts to register that arrow key again.
7. Click on something else besides DF (Chrome?).
8. Click ctrl/shift again; nothing happens. Game works as intended.

This seems to happen at random.

Err, I'm not sure how I missed this but this happened in Fortress Mode, no Adv. First bug report, so I guess I missed that field.

What OS are you using? Did you download the SDL or Legacy version of the game?

I have had this bug before with DF2010, SDL version. It occurs only on my laptop and only when using the laptop keyboard, not an external keyboard. It affects both dwarf and adventure modes. I'm running Win XP.

Compare to 1454...

That has some potential solutions listed, although the specific issue went away.

Are you on a laptop?

No, I am on a IBuyPower desktop using the Razer Black Widow mechanical keyboard.

Please reopen this report or PM me or another manager on the forums if this is reproducible in v0.40.24+.
