|key||The key to check the down state of.|
This function will return true if the key with the
particular keycode is pressed, or false if it is not, by
checking the hardware directly. It allows for a few more checks, in
particular you can use keycodes vk_lshift,
vk_lcontrol, vk_lalt, vk_rshift,
vk_rcontrol and vk_ralt to check whether the left or
right shift, control or alt key is pressed.
NOTE: This function is only available for the standard Windows target and the result is independent of which application has focus.
if keyboard_check_direct(vk_ralt) ||
crouch = true;
The above code will check to see if either the left or right alt keys have been pressed, and if they have it sets the variable "crouch" to true.
