    Keyboard trouble, can't hold these 3-4 important buttons down at the same time.

    I have a Microsoft Sidewinder x6 keyboard. I'm wondering why the hell I can't press A & W then 5 or shift 5, T and shift T. I'm strafing with A and W to the left and then I try to use my ability that is on shift 5 etc, but the button doesn't go down..? I have to let go of A or W and then press my ability, that means If I have fan of knives (Im a rogue) on shift T I cant use it and still be able to move around good. Is this some kinda thing I can turn off? I would be so happy if someone could tell me wth this shit is, its pissing me off!

    I have the same exact keyboard and I guess my key combos aren't as intense as yours.

    There is no fix buddy, it's a hardware limitation. Your only chance of fixing the issue is to switch to another gaming keyboard that is better than this MS one.

    Well, you can always change your keybinds of course.

    It is the way keyboards are wired, if you want more keys held down at once you need a special keyboard. (Even that kind can't always do 4 buttons at once)

    might I suggest you jump, then briefly let go of your strafe buttons, do your combo, then go back to holding down the strafe button?

    The jump will carry your character in whatever direciton you're going and you can pull off the combo as well.

    Just something I've been doing for a while now, might work for you.

    This is redicilous.. This keyboard has a glow, some useless macro shit, a scroll for sound and a built in handplate(which is awesome) but it cant do what my old HP standard keyboard did..? Thats shitty.

    I've done this, and It's fucking annoying. Guess I'll just go to binding some other abilitys to those keys..

    You really need to look at a gaming keyboard, paying particular attention to what they call ghosting.
    Something like the Microsoft x4 or x6 seem like possibles, or at least appeal to me anyway.
