I was having a problem with the following line evaluating to 'true' when I didn't believe it should:

if pressed(key) and lastPressed <> key
end if

The ... would be executed when it didn't seem that it should.

After changing this to:

if pressed(key)
if lastPressed <> key
end if
end if

The ... no longer executed. I made absolutely no other changes to the code, so I believe this to be an error with TNT Basic rather than on my part. I apologize if that's not correct.

I think it is a binding problem, if you add brackets like this ...

if (pressed(key)) and (lastPressed <> key)
end if

... then I think that should fix it.

I think the problem is that TNT Basic is assuming that the 'and' operator has binding priority i.e ...

if (pressed(key) and lastPressed) <> key

when you actually want the 'not equals' to have binding priority...

if (pressed(key)) and (lastPressed <> key)

To be honest, I'm not sure if this is a problem with TNT Basic because I can't remember the correct operator binding priorities. I'll look them up and make sure TNT Basic is correct.
