    Well, after looking at all this stuff for 2 days, I've managed to get a nice looking PONG game made for the Wii.

    UPDATE:
    Version: 1.1

    Direct download
    Wiibrew page, with more info: Wii PONG

    Includes source, and you are free to use it as you wish.

    Great remix of the original Pong concept. A version where the ball turns around mid-field, goes through the paddle to turn around behind it, and let's you return the ball without even touching it. I always felt the original Pong wasn't random enough.

    Nice one paradox, does this mean we will see more homebrew stuff from you rather than banners?

    Everyone can make banners now because there is a guide on it

    Cool man, thanks for this. Also, thanks a lot for including the source -- a nice simple program like this is always easy to learn from to do my own stuff [​IMG].

    Well, personally I would say: "Do not learn from this source". It's not the best way to do things, 100% sure about that, but it's the way I've self-tought my self [​IMG]

    The commented part was going to be the only part from the game. The rest of code(game_mode) was added after, and isn't commented. But it's easy to understant, because they are just menu's [​IMG]

    It's all explained in the README. I can perfectly add the correct bouncing, but it's more challenging this way.

    PD: Please, don't talk to me and don't leave posts in my topics. I ban you from all that the same way I'm banned from wiidev, understand?

    That's a nice way of polishing the turd. Of course it's "more challenging". According to your laughable "collision detection" algorithm, it is impossible for any player to lose if he moves the paddle to the very top. Subtracting the Y from the X coordinates to do a collision detection? What exactly were you smoking? I have to disagree with Stalkid64, tho. This isn't poor coding. More like throwing the keyboard at the wall and fixing the result's syntax afterwards.

    Thanks!

    I know it's stupid to do what I did(because there is a point where it always bounces, as you've said) but and what you've added is what I had in mind [​IMG].
    Maybe no one will beleve that, but I should have released it with the correct bouncing since the beginning. Anyway, it works perfect now [​IMG]

    Don't thank this asswipe. You make a homebrew game with your free time, and he insults it?

    Just ignore trolls, it's for the best.

    Haha, he's a loser for me.(Talking about Stalkid, not zosh [​IMG] )

    Anyway, it's nice to see other people hate him [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I started making an app called "the OTHER homebrew channel", with a green theme and leafs going down(reverse of Twiizers HBC), added Wiimote IR cursor and many other things, but then I thought a game would be a better idea [​IMG]
