    Question SDL multiple key presses...Help.

    Hello there. My current game project will be done is SDL using MS Visual C++ 6.0. I am integrating ASM into some of the code for faster speed. Anyhow, I was wondering if SDL can handle more than one key being pressed at a time. I was going to make the game a 2-player game, so I would like to know. If so, can I just do this:

    Code:
    if (event.key.keysym.sym == SDLK_LEFT) { 
        // Move player 1
        //
    
    }
    
    if (event.key.keysym.sym == SDLK_W) { 
        // Move player 2
        //
    
    }
    or does the second one need to be an "else if"?

    What you need is SDL_GetKeyState(). Look it up in the sdl docs @ libsdl.org (I'd have done it but the site appears to be down right now)
