Use these key codes in your on_key_press function to process player input. For example:
if (keycode == eKeyA) Display("You pressed A");
if (keycode == eKeyPlus) Display("You pressed the Plus key");
The following extra codes can only be used with IsKeyPressed (ie. on_key_press is never called with these codes):
 403       Left shift
 404       Right shift
 405       Left ctrl
 406       Right ctrl
 407       Alt
