Having my head filled with stupid and because of that no completing anything, I decided to follow the advice I give to others and haul ass and do something.
I kind of made Pong. Looks like this:
Whatever. It's not the graphics I need advice about. I already know I can't draw/paint worth a damn.
My thing works ok with a couple people, sharing the keyboard. I'd like to make the AI reactive, but I have tried it once, and managed to make the AI follow the balls' position at all times, with a speed that made it impossible to loose either way, because the player had the same speed, bouncing back was not an issue for any side.
I'd like to articulate a nice system that would make the computer's paddle behave like something remotely intelligent, not a drone that follows the ball.
Would any of you guys have any input about this?
Here's my current build for two players, hardly challenging, but that's not the real point:
P1: Keys A and Z
P2: Keys Up and Down
Launch ball: E
