A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately.

The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work.

[SFML] I Finished Pong! I Can't Believe It!

33 posts in this topic

Well, to clarify, I meant that you want to see how far you can go, because the AI never fails. So whenever the ball hits the paddle and bounces off of it, the score is increased because you went farther. Also, I updated it.
In This Update:
Fixed the MainMenu.h problems, and made the Play button work, so that everything else on the screen won't play the game.

Sorry, another update :)
ChangeLog:
Made the ball move at a random speed and at a random angle at the start of each game.
(Also, look in the console for your score!)

mm we all are happy you have completed your pong game :) but idk if any programmers especially advance ones would go as far to keep updated with your changes or to try the changes out. After all it is just pong and is fairly easy to build your own pong game within 30 mins maybe not even that if your a fast typer

I think its commendable that you're still adding stuff to your game and polishing it in the process. It shows commitment to your game, this is very important. When I made pong I didn't do all of this and went to something else, now for me the last part of polishing everything up in a game is the hardest part. I'm still no expert but I can tell you that creating fully finished and polished products is very very important.

Is there anyway you can publish an .exe of the game as I would like to play it and see what you came up with without having to run it through VS/linking all the necessary library files. This video might help you:

I know it's for Allegro 5 but the skills might be transferable to SFML (though I have never used it, so please take with a pinch of salt.)

Regards,

Stitchs.
