How to detect released key

Post by nex »


I saw there is the sim.message_keypress constant. But how do I detect when a key is down and when it is released again?

I'd like to drive a car over the keyboard, turning left when the key is down, and turning back to the center direction/0°when releasing it.

you can't (yet) directly detect a key release. You'll have to wait a few ms, if the key is not repeating, then you could consider this as a key release.
