A couple sprites/title screen
« on: September 01, 2010, 07:02:47 pm »
Working on a small pong game in C.  Could I get some better paddle, and ball sprites than what I threw together in 5 seconds?  Also a nice title screen would be cool :)  If possible the title screen would need:
-Play game
-difficulty < x >
-Exit


Thanks in advance :)

Edit: Totally forgot, 16 level greyscale 320x240

Here ya go. I made these to go with a black background, since that is that pong was.  ;)  I can probably get to a title screen too.

EDIT:Here's the title. It's kinda plain, but then again, it is Pong , so it actually works out.

I don't think it is worth it to do a title screen at 320x240.  It adds a massive amount of memory to the program (about 30K, if I am not mistaken).  A better idea would be to use sprites used by the program, or simply draw smaller sprites to the screen (or mask them with a background).  That is what I am doing for Block Dude (which will be with the next update when I change to passwords you actually type in).

O.O

really? Darn that's big... I agree with apcalc, though. One thing I would do is draw the Pong word/effects plus the rest of the text as sprites, but the entire black area should not be sprite data.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Alright, well here's just the title and the extra balls for that cool effect. I guess you can just use whatever type the Nspire has for the menu items.

This looks kinda cool. Also the pong chars fits the '70s a lil bit, the time at which the game was released ;D

Amazing :D  I love your sprites :P  Just tried to SC the first title, it was 38400 bytes.  When I get time, I'll switch everything to a black background, and add in the title screen :)
