Keys Q and E don't work in game...
The game works fine until I try to press Q or E to adjust my arms, they just dont work. Also are both the wrists supposed to move at the same time?

Sorry to hear that. The way it's supposed to work, so you know if something's going wrong is:

No keyboard buttons & mouse move = Move right wrist
Hold Shift & mouse move = Move left wrist
Hold Q & mouse move = Move right shoulder
Hold E & mouse move = Bend right elbow and twist left arm
Hold Shift and Q & mouse move = Move left shoulder
Hold Shift and E & mouse move = Bend left elbow and twist left arm

You shouldn't be able to move both wrists at the same time unless you're using Razer Hydra's or a gamepad (e.g. Xbox 360 controller).

If something is going wrong, could you please start up the game, run a level where this problem occurs for a moment and then quit the game. Then find the Probably Archery folder in your Steam/steamapps/common directory and under the 'Probably Archery_Data' you'll find 'output_log.txt'. Please email that to with a message letting me know it's for this problem. If you're not on Windows then let me know because the log will be in a different location.

I'll look into the problem in the mean time. This isn't something that I'd seen from the ~30,000 people that have played the previous versions of the game so it's odd and unfortunate if it has popped up now, but I will fix it asap.

Jut Dl'd your program and I have the same problem. I use keyboard and mouse for controls. I can grab an arrow and move the wrist. That is all. Plus both the left and right wrist move at the same time. Q and E keys do absolutely nothing. Can't move elbow, arm, nor shoulder. Consequently I can't nook an arrow.

Version 1.0.4 has just been uploaded and should be available shortly. It will hopefully fix this issue for you. It appears to be related to having a joystick (real or virtual, anything that Windows has detected as a USB game controller) and having the axes not centered so if the update does not fix the issue for you, try disconnecting any controllers/joysticks or removing virtual joysticks while playing.

If 1.0.4 doesn't fix the issue, please let me know.

Ahha! I have a G27 game wheel, pedals and gear shift connected to a USB port, these will also be detected as a joystick. The mouse also is a USB connection. I loaded archery just to see if I have control. YES, the E and Q key now work. I am able to make the arm, elbow and shoulder work. Plus the wrist action is now using only one arm at a time. Switching between them with shift. I currently do not have time to test further, but will later and let you know more info. Thanks for this fix.
