 Description
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Fix for the bug that the game randomly toggles Walk/Run mode.
In other words, it switches on its own
between "Walk by [Shift] + [W/A/S/D]" and "Run by [Shift] + [W/A/S/D]",
inverts the [Shift] key functionality.

Technically, it's not random.
This will happen when you enter a dialog or a kill camera starts
while holding down the [Shift] key.
The game doesn't detect its key release in these cases.

For example, you prefer to hold the [Shift] key to walk.
([W/A/S/D] = "Run" and [Shift] + [W/A/S/D] = "Walk")
If you start a conversation during walking (holding the [Shift] key),
Walk/Run mode will be inverted on leaving the conversation.
([W/A/S/D] = "Walk" and [Shift] + [W/A/S/D] = "Run")
You will now have to hold the [Shift] key to run
and hit [Caps Lock] to switch back.

Some people have mentioned this issue since a long time ago.

 Q & A
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. It's not a bug. You accidentally hit Caps Lock lol.
A. No, I didn't.

Q. You can fix this by changing bAlwaysRunByDefault in SkyrimPrefs.ini.
A. That setting has nothing to do with this.

Q. Does this mod affect Frame Rate?
A. No, it costs less than 0.01 millisecond per frame.

Q. I've bound another key to run instead of shift. Does this mod work?
A. It usually works unless you bind a mouse button for it.

Q. I play the game with a controller. Do I need this mod?
A. Generally, controllers don't have this issue,
   but if you disable the in-game controller handling and
   use a controller mapping program like XPadder, JoyToKey, etc,
   this issue may happen because it's the same as playing with a keyboard.

Q. What's this mod doing there?
A. It prevents the game from tinkering with walk/run mode and serves as a substitute,
   getting key input and handling it appropriately.

Q. I've got the error that says "couldn't load plugin" in skse.log file.
A. Since my mod reads and writes some areas of memory in the skyrim process,
   an anti-virus software could find it malicious and block it.
   You might be able to avoid this by excluding files or folder from protection.

Q. Doesn't this program contain a malicious code like trojans?
A. No. I don't think it's a good idea.
   This dll is only 4KB, even smaller than its readme text.
   Anyone with a skill can easily look into what the program is doing completely.

歩き/走りの操作方法が意図せず変更されてしまう不具合を修正します。
例えば、デフォルトでは [W/A/S/D] キーで走り、
[Shift] + [W/A/S/D] キーで歩く、という操作になっていますが、
この [Shift] キーを押している最中に、会話を始めたり、
フィニッシュブローのカットシーンが入ると、歩き/走りの操作が勝手に反転し、
[Shift] キーを押しながらでないと走れない ([W/A/S/D] で歩く) 操作に
変更されてしまう問題があります。また同様に、この逆も起こり得ます。
