Persist keyboard events between states


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to persist keyboard events between states? I am setting one with `game.input.keyboard.addKey()` and `myKey.onUp.add()` in the first state `create` function, but changing states seems to remove the listener.


I'm using 2.4.4, but can't find the documentation for what occurs between state transitions, is this available somewhere?


Thanks in advance

I'd love to hear other people chime in but here's what I do (not authoritative! not a best practice or anything! just what works for me!)


If it's something that needs to be a part of the update or render cycle I make a Phaser.Plugin. Anything that manages tweens, or ensures timings between events, even particle effects, that kind of thing... I tend to make those Plugins. Most of those plugins make themselves properties of the game instance.


If it's just a collection of stuff that would be handy to reference elsewhere I make an object and stick it on the game instance, too.  For example, every layer in my game is hung off a "groups" property on the game instance.
