  • added EXTRA-LIFE feature;
  • fixed some other bugs.

Any feedback is appreciated.

graphically its beautiful,
couple control suggestions
make the key control a little less sensitive
and on the menu maybe a little more sensitivity for the mouse


umm iuno exactly how i did this, but right after losing a life between spawning a new ball or whatnot, i pressed something… clicked something, not sure, but the ball didn’t display (sounds and everything still worked as if ball was in play)…
i imagine somewhere in the code you can find what im talking about :-/
it happened when i almost spilled my coke and i kinda hit the keyboard funny… (right when i lost my life)…


yo, the screenshots look great. I was wondering since I just started off how long it take you to get this produce up I’m going along the same like so I need a kind of projection, thanks. Maybe we can get together and do somethings in the near future, I’m interest.

Tried it…

what has this thred with ogl todo?

Some constructive critics:
Mice is TOO FAST !
Keyboard should have some Inteligence in it
to emulate mouse behaviour (speed depends on situation)
You should get the powerup if you go ower it and not only when it falls on you - it just perturbd me.
Key repeat! Seems to me that you use DInput - but i stil want key repeat and i DON’T care how dificult it is to be made.
Allso lots of input did get lost -> dont use the key array thing - it’s evil!
… dont remember more …

Note: I was able to end the first level only once (easiest mode), and that only because
the ball did go betwen blocks trough and in one turn cleared nearly all of the level -> lots of powerups falling -> next level.
Some real playability problems here…

Note: on my graphic card the scenes are full of errors - but i am sure the problem is at my side (but i am sure they would disappear when it wouldn’t use quads so much)

Is that me - or is it really somewhat out of place?

EDIT: I did notice that i might not have the latest version - so, if some of it is fixed - ignore my comments on that.
