Lachlan's Adventures into C++ #1 - Pong

4/05/2011 12:34:00 am Posted by Lachlan No comments

I've begun my adventure into learning the heinous language called C++. I like the IDE I'm using (Visual Studio 2010) as compared to JEdit/Command Line, but I'm not really impressed by the itself language thus far. I'll detail that later, when its a bit later in the day and I'm a bit more awake.

Pong is mostly finished. A little of the logic is a little dodgy, and I want to make it zoom in closer. At the moment, you'll be playing it with your mouse on a 128x96 pixel display. But I'm still pleased with it as the first thing I've written in C++.

You can download the crappy version here
If you're interested, the source is here

Update: (5/04/11 8:03AM:) - I didn't realise I had to distribute DLLs too. Fixed.
