    hey all,

    any CS players help me out with this? seems like if i hold down a button too long like the forward "W", it stops after a while. NOT GOOD when fending for your life.

    anyone know a workaround?

    i'm using this:

    I play CS, but not all that often.

    The only thing I can see wrong with it is maybe you're too far away from your IR sensor.

    It could be a faulty keyboard. Try reading reviews on your keyboard and see if anyone has had similar issues.

    Maybe the signal from the wireless is getting periodically interrupted for a split second or something and that's what kills the motion. That's totally a left field guess.

    Wireless keyboards are horrible for gaming.

    The same thing happens with my wireless and Doom 3. It was so bad that I stopped playing the game until I got a wired unit.
  7. I know nuts about optical keyboards , but whats worse are low end laser mice without the ball... That will kill ye in a fps.
  8. They low-latency wireless keyboard and mouses aren't that bad. The new Logitech set is highly rated. Not cheap though.
