Keyboard Watcher Up/Down - A User Actor

  • Tech Staff

    Hello All,

    I decided to share this simple little User Actor that I use all the time. In fact, I use it so much that I completely forgot, (until today), that it's not actually a native Isadora actor, but a User Actor of my own creation. I'm sure other people have made something similar too, but I figured I'd share my version so that people could use it if they wanted.

    At some point a long time ago, I got tired of having to put actors in front of Keyboard Watcher actors to prevent them from triggering things multiple times. To this end, I made a quick User Actor that's essentially a "single-press" variation of the Keyboard Watcher actor (and apparently started using it so often that I completely forgot that it wasn't a native Isadora actor). Today, upon rediscovering that it was actually something I made, I gave it a little update, added some comments, and here it is for all of you to enjoy.
