In Topic: Xna GameTime problem?

Try updating your logic less frequent, let's say 30fps:

TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1000.0d / 30.0d);

Thanks for a reply, but this did not work for me and the problem is still there.

I used Stopwatch to time my update- and draw method.
Update uses under 1ms and draw under 2ms, so I don't think its because my game is to complex.

The code is not displayed the proper way.
Does anyone know how to fix it? :P

If you have a basic understanding about vectors this link will help you a lot:

Under the "calculating the projection vector" section.

You can:
1. Find the the smallest projection vector.
2. Move the ball on the outside of the paddle.(The length of the projection vector)
3. Reverse the acceleration of the ball in the direction of the collision.

Note: It can also be useful too not allow movement of the paddle if the ball hits the top or bottom side of the paddle, so that the ball and paddle does not collide 2 time in a row.

This is not the simplest method too find the collision, but it is very useful when it comes too collision handling.

If this does not make sense, please let me know. xD

Hi I read your post and I think I can help. But first I need to know:

How do you want your game to look like?

Are you aiming for the absolute simplest version(the ball updates 1-5 times a second), or the more modern version(the ball have a fluid motion)?
Is the ball round or square?
What happens if it hits a corner of the paddle?
