Simultaneous keypresses in Pong game

P: n/a
i have created a Pong game Application where two players control their
pads using the keyboard. the problem is that one player is using the
action keys
VK_UP and VK_DOWN in keyPressed() and the other, characters 'w' and
's' in keyTyped(). when both players hit a key simultaneously and keep
it pressed then only one of the two pads move. on the other hand if
both hit their keys fast then everything works ok. i declared both
keyPressed and keyTyped as "synchronized" but it doesn't seem to work.
what can i do in order to process them simultaneously? there is a run
method in my application as well.

thank you
