I'm using allegro to make my own version of pong, and I want the score to be kept track everytime it hits the paddle. So I have points++; for keeping track of points, but it won't print in textout_ex. Is there another print/textout function in allegro to print variables? I did not find anything in a search.
this doesn't work
Code:textout_ex(screen, font, points, 250, 250, makecol(0, 0, 0), makecol(0, 0, 0));
