As soon as I try to start a game, the program crashes [sad]. A sound starts to play, but like gets stuck for a few seconds, then the dreadful this program has crashed message. I'm using your .DLL's included in the game. I usually don't have problems with SDL apps...

No. Weird. Does this happen after you select the "Start" menu item?

It happens after I choose what I want to play to. If I choose either score or time, then a sound plays, then the crash.

Okay, before you choose the "START" option, try this:

Press ~ to access the console.
Type:
set sound 0

Press ~ to close the console, and select "START".

At any point, repeat the process and use 1 instead of 0 to turn sound back on.

If the game works, then I know it is the sound's fault.

EDIT: The crash bug finally happened to me, after a round ended and I said I wanted to play again. I'll look into it.

Doesnt crash on my pc! (+sound, didnt finished a game that is not time based)
It seems to be a bit slowly at first but it may be because the second window started before windows put it in the taskbar (i dont have the fastest pc after all).
Nice game and idea btw.

I fixed the ball bounce math, it works flawlessly, I believe. I just need to iron out the crash bug.

Well, I tried to set the sound to 0, as stated above, but it still crashes at the same point [sad].
