1. ## First Game

Does anyone have any good sites for beginners who want to start making games like Pong or a Tetris clone......

2. I would like to know also, but I just kind of started already using my knowledge from gametut's... if only i could delete them wicked buttons! Then I could continue...

3. ## Re: First Game

where did u get the tutorials from?

4. Couldn't find anything.......

5. Those are pretty basic, why don't ya sit down and try to code them? Think about the logic behind them, it's probably easier then you're thinking.

6. Ok, but I went to the first Win32 link in the tutorials section, and I've looked through them all, with nothing about programming a pong or tetris game

7. what tazar was trying to say, was he used the tutorials at this site to help him get the basics down, and then start working on it. Sit down with paper and right your game in psuedo code, or plan it out on paper. Like Dual-Catfish said think of it logically. Those tutorials are there just to help you get started on it, making the game on your own.

8. Ok, I'm starting on writing it right now......but atleast help me on this one......how would you make the bounce of the paddle reflect off of walls and stuff (I hope you know what I mean, because I don't )

9. Like what angle the ball will rebound off of a wall? This i'm unsure of... it seems to me you add 180 degrees to the angle of impact... but I'm probably wrong.

10. Would doing tangent and sin and stuff work for that (pretty sure you have to use them, plus, I'm really good with them)

11. I think it has to do with Vectors or something... I don't ecall if they have a tutorial on that. I am at school now so I can't go to it since it has "game" in its link. I do remember seeing a tutorial about a ball bouncing off a wall and back at different angles though, maybe i could find it...

12. Could you please.....I got everything in my head figured out on how I want it to look and such

13. Got it! Here is the link, its called "Vector Based Collision" or something like that, i believe its exactly what you want. It features a ball bouncing off of the sides of the window, if you have any questions on it, go to the forums at www.gametutorials.com.
