1.7 (Jaunty) + 1.4 (Intrepid) - No jump while running left

Hi There,
Great game, I'm glad I found it!

This is my first bug report - I did a search and didn't see it reported.

One thing I've noticed in both versions I've tried (1.4 and 1.7) is that you can't do the "super-jump" (run+jump), when you are running left - only when you are running right. If you are running left and hit the jump button, you just keep running. This has killed me numerous times. I'm just using the keyboard - no joystick.

Cheers guys - great work!

Firstly, why does the package manager of Jaunty Jackalope still install version 1.7? Did nobody create the new packages for the operation system which has been released on the 23th of April 2009?

I wanted to reproduce your bug, but I couldn't. I can run to the left and to the right as much as I like and do the "super-jump". I only discover such a bug if I click more than six buttons on my keyboard at the same time. In that case every other click is ignored. Therefore my question: Did you click 7 buttons in total or even more when playing SMC?

Fabianius, what you said (with 6 other buttons pressed) is another chapter, but it happens also in Flash.
There are a few buttons that block others, e.g.:
If you hit space, left and up arrow key, left arrow key will be ignored. I guess you got this phenomen.
To gruvn's report:
I couldn't reproduce it. Try to explain it better.

"6 other buttons pressed"? I thought you were joking. No, I'm just playing like a normal person, at most pressing 3 buttons at a time. I'm afraid I can't explain it any more clearly.

Run + right + jump = Super Jump
Run + left + jump = run left
if I push the run key and then the jump key, but no direction, the super jump works.

I will try remapping my controls and report back if I get it to work. If not, I will assume it's just my local machine.

Thanks for investigating!

I also can not reproduce it.

Try to get a later version from the PPA or getdeb.
