New Stuck Controls Bug Nov. 19th, 2009 @ 12:09 AM Reply

I've started receiving reports that moving in certain directions is getting stuck, like when the arrow key is lifted, the movement continues as if it were still down.

This is happening on games I've had on NG for a long time, but just in the last few weeks, even though the file has not been changed, people are reporting this "bug"

The "Armed Prophet" game seems to be having the same problem (based on the reviews)

Is it a flash player thing? A Newgrounds thing? A Windows 7 thing? A Windows Vista thing?

Anyone know why it would just start showing up recently?

I'm stumped, plz help!

I think I found the answer. It's an Internet Explorer problem, doing the following will fix it (copied from a forum on kongregate)

SOLVED: Tools---Internet Options --- Security tab --- uncheck protected mode. or Tools---Internet Options --- Security tab --- click -trusted sites - click sites - uncheck require server - click add (Make sure you also have unchecked protected mode for this zone) This will disable it for only the site you add. This solved the problem but obviously will weakens your security. I would recommend you only disable this when you go to sites you trust that have this problem. Tested with IE8 on Windows 7 RC. I also think it will work with Vista and IE 7. I tested with the game shift 4. Good Luck!

I don't do front pages; F6> "/2" and I'm where I wanna be. I found it (eventually) through the links at the bottom of the page. If it don't appear there, I don't view it.

Also I'm glad it's solved n shit, but what are the odds of IE fucking up? Srsly.

Thanks for the tip! I actually PMed Luis the other day about this issue when I had problems on Portal Defenders. I found out myself that using the pop-up mode usually eliminates the problem also ( but not on all games, i.e. Miami Shark). I'm glad someone found a solution to the problem.
