Pong 3D.

Postby nikki » Thu Dec 15, 2005 7:19 pm

Hello everybody!

This is my first 3D game written in C++. It's basically a remake of Pong where you control both bats and have to keep the ball on the table as long as possible. It includes some nice particle effects and stuff. I made all the models and textures myself (except for ol' stevecube of course!). You have to use the mouse to control the bats. If you press the left mouse button, everything stops and you can change your view around the table by using the mouse and E and D keys to zoom in and out respectively. Here's a screenshot:-

Here's the (new) download link:-

To run it, go to the installation folder and run Pong 3D.

If you are having problems with the vc80 runtimes, download an MSI to fix them here:-

I hope you like it. Please do put up your highest times! :D

You have compiled it using vc8, which means you need to provide appropertiate dlls( i'm missing msvcr80.dll for example ), and possibly have users install .net 2.0 framework.

Works fine here, but I have MSVC2005 installed.
Nikki, there is a slight problem when using MSVC2005 and redistributing executable made with it, simply redistributing the runtime libs won't help. See here for some details on this: http://www.stevestreeting.com/?p=181
And here a proposal to solve it: http://www.stevestreeting.com/?p=183

Btw, the game is hard like hell. :)

Really? What's your highest score? By the way, I'll be looking into MSI installers soon.

I only lasted 10 seconds max. Maybe you could make speed adjustable. And you could highten the contrast between the table and the tabs, dark brown on dark green is not too good visible. :)

Cool! I got 48 seconds. Yep, I'll make speed adjustable. Actually, the speed keeps increasing as you play, and thats what makes it so difficult.

Well, I have uploaded an MSI installer for those who have problems due to the fact that they do not have Visual C++ 2005. Here it is:-

very nice little game.
but yes maybe let the speed increase slower and start slower.
and is the speed defined by per frame or per timeinterval?
in first case it would be harder to play on good computers.

congrats!

ps: i made up to 21 seconds ;-)

I think u might be basing your ball speed off of frame callback not a fixed speed because I was well over 100 seconds and the ball was still going REALLY slow. I have an older machine here at work.

Yeah, you're right. I'll change it so that it isn't based upon frametime.

Update:

I have made some changes to the game, and have uploaded it witha new NSIS installer. The ballSpeed increase rate doesn't depend upon frametime now! So what are you waiting for? Download it (first post) !

Useful utility btw. Get Depends. Not the diaper... It tells you every dll that your app implicitely links to. If ANYTHING looks like the user won't have it, package it with your app.

As for the .NET dependency, that sucks!

Hello Nikki,

Hope you still there. I need your kind help. I am working on a project which replaces conventional user i/p devices like mice with some handsfree device. For that I need source code of the 3D Pong game designed by you, since it will take too long for me to design altogether new game using OGRE. Your game can be very good testing platform. If plagiarism is source of your worry, then let me assure you that your name will be cited wherever your code is used and any changes made in your part of code will be made open source. Hope you will consider. Thanks.

Wow, nice to see someone still interested in my Pong game. :D

Unfortunately, I think I've lost the source. :( It might be somewhere in my external hardrives though, they're always filled with loads of random stuff, I'll try to dig it out for you.

Best of luck with your project!

Hi,
Thanks Nikki. :D I hope you will take out some time to find that source code. Awaiting your reply. Thanks again.

Ok, I'm gonna look for it tomorrow, but if I don't find it, don't lose hope, there are many Ogre demos/games lying around you can use. You could also very easily write your own little one, Ogre's really easy.
