After reading a tutorial about ncurses i was trying to make a pong like game, after a big struggle with finding something remotley alike kbhit() i found a "home made" version after implementing it i found something wierd.
this code show the variable loop_count After you press any keys but if you replace it with printf("%d", loop_count);
for( ;; )
key = getch();
it work like a charm... why is this and is there a way around it? since printf doesnt seem to work very well with ncurses i would very much like to replace it.
