How do i dump the keyboard memory... I have a game that works with the kepress event and if the player holds down a key for a couple secondes then lets go the built up key strokes still make events after they have stopped pushing the keys. I would like to dump the Key Board memory after every key stoke so that their arn't excess strokes generated.

Real easy:

Sub ClearKeys
   While inkey$<>""
   Wend
End Sub

Now just call ClearKeys in each Keypress event you process.

Good Luck!
