1.the ball moves too slow
2.the cpu paddle move extremly fast, so it's not possible to win...

Neat.

Player paddle moves fine if you use the mouse. Using the up-down arrows is way too slow.

The computer needs to move like a real player would...this means a little more intelligent AI, but in the long run it''s worth it.

Good job.

Thanks for the feedback.

Do you or anyone else have a suggestion to improve movement with the arrow keys? I didn''t really write any AI. Just some code to move the paddle with the ball. Maybe, I''ll fix this or I won''t.

The ball should speed up over time.

It does speed up - you just have to be good at pong. I actually manages to beat that cheating computer AI, but whatever.

Limit the computer and player to the same maximum speed, then write an algorithm so that the computer calculates and predicts where the ball will be whenever it reflects off the player''s paddle.

Also, add a randomness variable into it so that when the ball hits the paddles (not walls) it can bounce off in different ways so that it''s not always so predictable.

And then add bounce zones onto the paddles so that if I hit the ball off on the edge it will go to the side and go crazy, if I hit it in the middle then it will go straight.

--it can be done--
