Re: Simple PONG-game tutorial for Beginner Coders

I have finally been able to understand the parts discussed (took a lot of time reading and re-reading though). Now I'm finished

I want to send you the text so you can check if it's good enough for you. It's of course in Swedish, but with Google Translate it should be comprehensible.

Re: Simple PONG-game tutorial for Beginner Coders

I see! I simply thought that since you had defined 1 timepassed as 1000 timeunits, and 1000 timeunits is one second, then 4 timepassed must be 4 seconds long. So this rather mean that since the REPEAT - LOOP wait for 4 time units, the program gets updated 250 times/second? And from what I understood...

Re: Simple PONG-game tutorial for Beginner Coders

Re: Simple PONG-game tutorial for Beginner Coders

I'm almost finished with the translation. It has been a pain since sometimes I've had huge problem simply understanding the code, and therefore not been able to understand how to explain it. But I'm stuck at one place: Repeat timepassed = GetTimer(1) Until timepassed > 3 ResetTimer(1) timepassed = t...

Re: Simple PONG-game tutorial for Beginner Coders

I have just tested everything and it works It's not the prettiest Pong game for sure, but it's a really good beginners guide. I will make some changes in order for it to work better as an article.

Is it possible though to lower the screen resolution? Not everyone has such big screens I think.

Re: Simple PONG-game tutorial for Beginner Coders

I have started to seriously look into the code (I was abroad for 3 weeks) and I'm having a problem. Your examples, like: hillbillybilly = 1 ceo = "Bill McEwen" agentx = "James Bond" print(hillbillybilly) print(ceo) print(agentx) Shows every one of the inputs as seperate lines. But when I write the s...
