    Cool Text Based Pong Game Ready :-)

    Hey Guys,
    I finally wrote the Text Based Pong game :-)

    Thanks to red baron for his help on hiding the cursor, changing the boundary values and the my_delay function.

    Here's the code:
    PHP Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <time.h>

    struct gamecomponent

    I can't compile that, none of the include files i have contain the gotoxy() function or clrscr() function. Oh well, it looked interesting, if that helps...

    wooohooo very nice!!
    thumbs up to you , it works fine but it wont compile on MVS

    and ur webhoster wont allow external download , id suggest attaching the file to the board

    edit note: btw if its a C program why is it under the C++ forum

    Here

    I am attaching it to this.

    Can anyone tell me why it doesn't compile with other compilers?
    How do I make it work with all of the compilers?

    You use some compiler-specific functions and stuff in there...

    hmm

    how do i know what functions I have to change (and to what they have to be changed) in order to make it totally ANSI C ?
