Coma, if people want this code fixed, I fix it now. I've stop coding in C 6 years ago but well doing some php last month have reactivated the taste for.

hitchhikr: I suppose yes that millions pong games have been released over the year, arkanoid is one clone among other with some alteration, but the basic idea is the same: relaunching the ball over and over. Where can I download the original pong and on which machine does it runs on? Atari VCS / 2600? Thanks.


my programming teacher have said me how to make this ball more living and smooth, I'll do it if people wants. Sticking to this old dos version enable the game to be runnable on even old PC and hence increase my market!!! ;) :>)

For the Fan and Dipswitch (he loves history so he will love this site: the history of the first video game ever released)

Hint: to play more confortably, put the "console" behind the table!

I count the guys who want the final version: at 20 I launch again my compiler and finish the game.

Now it's one.

I guess you'll find some odyssey emulators around or maybe mame can emulate this aswell.
added on the 2005-07-08 01:46:31 by hitchhikr hitchhikr
hitchhikr I can emulate the game but in fact, the first pong is a machine on his own as you can see on the photo higher. The old guy is the coiner of the first pong and in fact of the first video game ever. The link explain the history of the video game, really interresting.

Keops, instead of trolling, be positive, do you want the fix / update or not and evil be kind (if possible), clarify your vote, yes or no do you want a fix.

If you don't care (which I believe), don't troll.

o__Ô who is the troll ?

p01 do you want an horizontal pong 2 player game?
Answer the question and yes I troll but others troll too so it's fair!

ep: I think "larva" was the reason for Gargarj to think again you and Adok are the same person. It's a nearly correct translation with some background information. I don't think a frenchman wiho doesn't speak German could find such a "fitting" word.

knox: But feeding Claus makes so much fun. ;)
yes I asked for a fix obviously :)

trolling ? nah!
it's just final versions are more polished, more rulez, imho...
added on the 2005-07-08 02:27:32 by EviL EviL
Larva: I said Adok you were a madman. He said me at first U want to name yourself madman but the nick was already taken and he said me maden maining was the german word for larva in english. I fucked you so hardly with tons of pics because I wasn't aware of the meaning of your low level word game. And here also Claus write me an email explaining there is a special class for boys with mental disabilities or retard in Germany.

And no I'm not Adok but as already stated it's impossible to prove except by meeting you at a party. So please don't mention this subject as it's without any solution here.

So the score is 1 / 20.
I await the 19 else and I see there was 90 people watching the new webpages. Seems this game have success!

I don´t think there is much need for the world to see another pong game.

if you do it, do it because you really want to do it.

asking is pretty pointless.

Thanks for clarifying, but maden are maggots. And my nick has _nothing_ to do with maggots, even if I claim that sometimes.

I fucked you so hardly
Nah, I don't believe that, it would mean you are Faker/VOZ. I doubt that.

And here also Claus write me an email explaining there is a special class for boys with mental disabilities or retard in Germany.
<insert obvious jokes here>
Well, I can't prove that right or wrong, but there are special schools in Germany for mentally handicapped children. I was in one of them and I'm still impressed by these children. One girl in my class couldn't speek (she was able to speak but refused due to a bad early childhood) and had a bad ear but was able to create tones out of things of the everyday life where most of us would only get a *clonk*. So much for that part of my life... ;)

And yes, I want the ultimate Pong-EP, too.
So it's 18 which are rest to convince me.

Maden are you a fisher?
Do you know plombee coulissante, fish hook nb 22, and rainbow trout?

Reboot, I make something in life when it have a meaning, programming for myself have no meaning, it's interresting one two hours then I fell down.
That's why so many people build a group in the scene or a team at work: they find this way motivation and entertainment doing things.

This game, I can finish it, obviously, I can do it all by myself, doing simple maths and adding several improvements, if there are thousands pong code here and there it's even greater because I'll be able to watch what was done and so use this in my version.

Please note this is an arkanoid layout version, not so common:

The new fashion: black and White 4K games.

Don't use black backgrounds though, they are killing the scene.
