Hey guys,

I've been learning graphics in C++ with SDL, I made pong for my first game (original, I know) and it sucks, so please give me some constructive criticism. I decided to make the physics so it would bounce the ball back at a semi-random speed, I think it makes it a little more exciting than the usual back-forth of pong.

controls are w and s for the left paddle, up and down arrows for the right paddle
space resets the ball
r key launches the ball

linux only at the moment

I'm adding fonts for the score, the update will be posted soon

Is there any chance you could post the source?

I'd rather not actually...

I'm just basically testing to see if anyone found glitches while running it. and you've already seen the source Wink

Yes, but I think if you really want to try it that bad, I would just boot up and ubuntu live session.

got around to setting up SDL on Dev-C++ today, here's the windows version if anyone's interested. Keep in mind, this was my first SDL game, everyone's got to start somewhere :p

very nice : ) a point system would have been nice but thats for a later time. I have but one question: why is the ball a box : P
Other than that very good job! Smile

Great stuff, ball's not moving, even when I compile it. Seems like you followed Lazy Foo's tutorials Very Happy (they're good tutorials)
More importantly, where'd you get your avatar pic? It would look damn cool as my wallpaper.

What about the Mac version? Sad jk.

You should post the source though because I don't have Linux installed and I don't want to boot up with Windows. Plus, I'd rather see your code and learn from it because I'd like to learn how to use SDL.

my bad guys, haven't been on the forum in a bit.

1.) The ball is a box because I have no idea, it was the easiest shape to make in 5 seconds in Paint Very Happy.

2.) I don't know why it doesn't work, this game is crap so that's your problem most likely. My avatar can be found by google imaging fractal art wallpaper, and it's on the first page and of course is also my wallpaper :p.

3.) Sorry andrew, I don't even have the source anymore Sad lazyfoo.net has some great SDL tutorials though!
