Can't pass the third level in the forest
It might make me sound like a noob, but I really cant understand what the hell is going on. im stuck at this level in the only part there is, and i just cant make the jump, I press shift, right arrow and space but I can't reach the goal. Im pretty frustrated because I wanted this game for long time and now I can't pass that stupid part (tried about 100 times). any advices? maybe its a bug or something like that? I use keyboard btw, maybe thats the problem...

Hold down shift, don't press it, run to the right and hold jump. The shift button is a sprint button, to be able to play Super Meat Boy you must have this held down at all times because it makes you jump further and you move faster it is practically required for almost all the levels in the game, there are only a few instances in the game where you shoudln't hold shift down.

Go to:

Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/super meat boy
or
Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/super meat boy

Once in the Super Meat Boy folder open up the buttonmap.cfg in Notepad or any other text editor. Once there change whatever key you think isn't working and see if the new key works.

I can change the arrow keys too?

Yeah, all the keys are changeable from that file, for example if I wented left to be the 'D' key I would change it from:

left="left";
to
left="d";

Better change it to a button you don't use much, ypu're going to be holding down that button a LOT.

If you're having any amount of trouble with a keyboard in those early levels, you're absolutely going to need a gamepad for the latter levels. On a 1-100 scale, level 3 is a .01 out of 100 difficulty, as far as the game goes. Do yourself a favor and pick up a Logitech usb controller, or a 360 controller.

It just occured to me that your problem may be as a result of your keyboard. Some keyboards are only able to transmit 2 keystrokess simultaneously, which renders them unusable for meat boy as you're frequently holding down Sprint, a direction and then a jump button.

^this
but i think it is more common that the limit is 3 (might be wrong though). so sprint+direction+jump might be ok, but if you change the direction it can happen that you end up pressing 4 buttons simultaneously. keyboards which are marketed as gaming keyboards usually don't have this restriction.
i had this problem before i got my gamepad, there was always a sound signal when this occured (the game is much easier with gamepad anyways )

I have same problem, I prefer use keyboard (Logitech G510) and I can´t pass the third level in the forest. I think it is a bug, because shift+spacebar+left arrow is working, but shift+spacebar+right arrow is not working, so I have to use gamepad.

EDIT\\\ I changed special button (shift) to other button (x) a few minutes ago and i can pass the third level in the forest on keyboard.

keyboard forever
