Chrono Trigger L+R+A aka Keyboard Limitations

Post by Deathlike2 »

If you are hitting this problem, it is because keyboards are hitting a limitation of simulataneous key hits of 3. This issue does not happen in all cases, but is a frequent issue for those of you not using a controller/gamepad.

You have some options:

1) Either map L, R and A to the same button.

2) Create a special key combination that presses L, R, and A at the same time.

3) Map some of the buttons to Control/Alt/Shift. These keys generally help alleviate this problem.

Note: L+R+A is the example here. This can be applied to any situation that requires multiple buttons/keys being pressed at the same time.
