Keyboard Issue

After a recent update to splashtop hd the behavior of keypresses has changed. Previously the key was regstered on press, but now it is registered on release. This efectively breaks the use of splashtop for gaming. The first screenshot on the market is WoW and I was able to play with no issues, but now I can only use the arrow keys for movement and not the ASDW and QE keys as they do not register until I release them. I appreciate that there have been updates to fix other keyboard issues, but the standard is register on press and allow for repeat after X time. This new scenario does not permit keys to repeat and therefore you ave lost functionality that has always been there. I have searched for a client side setting, but there are non. Please either return the keypress to the previous method or allow the user to select the method. Thank you.

That's why the older version in Asus MyCloud registers the keys correctly (but has no mouse support) and the new one doesn't! Yes, please fix this, dear splashtop team.

Most games control via WASD and not the arrow keys. Why did you remove the feature in the first place?
