Just bought a CODE V3 104-Key Mechanical Keyboard - Zealio 67g, and while I primarily use it for typing (programming), I'm also a casual gamer; which comes with some more unique and unusual key combinations.
It seems occasionally... pressing ALT (or having ALT held down) in combination with pressing another key (in my case mostly S) will either not register that ALT as been pressed or release the ALT being held down (forcing me to release and repress the key).
I have upgraded to the latest firmware 1.20 but the issue still persists. I only have USB 3.2 Gen 1 and Gen 2 ports on my motherboard (so no USB 2.0 to try). The keyboard is currently plugged into a USB 3.2 Gen 1 port on the rear panel.
I would say this situation randomly occurs 5-6 times an hour while playing an FPS called Hunt Showdown (never occurred with my old DAS Keyboard though), I have not tested any other games. Attempts to manually reproduce the issue generally fail, it all feels very random.
Has anyone else ever encountered anything like this before? Could this be a polling rate issue? Are there an logging utilities I can use to catch this as it occurs?
Here is some information about my system:
