Nothing else to say, my character keeps walking in the direction I was pressing even after I swich tabs in Google Chrome.

Any way to solve this?

Could you show the "update" method of your character entity?

Are you using this.vel.x or are you moving the entity with this.pos.x ?

Here you have

I'm using this.vel.x.

Thanks for answering.

The browser doesn&039;t send the #keyup event when switching tabs. If you then release the key in another tab, your game will never receive the keyup and will continue to think the key is still pressed.

We could probably fix it by explicitly releasing all keys when the game goes out of focus. But honestly, I don't think it's a big deal.

Opinions? Did anyone else encounter this issue?

If it is a multiplayer game then the players would keep going and it could lead into some weird accidents.
I'll try to implement that idea about the game focus, thanks.

Just wanted to +1 that this was an issue for us too.
