I want to know a certain key like KEY_A or KEY_B is just pressed, but there is a method for checking action Input.is_action_just_pressed() is there any wat to implement is_key_just_pressed()?

InputEvent - What is it?

Try this:

func _input(event):
    var just_pressed = event.is_pressed() and not event.is_echo()
    if Input.is_key_pressed(KEY_A) and just_pressed:

This actually works quite well. Thanks dude!

For me it does not do anything…

is there another thing to do to make the input function itself work?

or must there be something different in v3.4.3?
