Lol, I guess I should have commented the event sheet.

For event 12, how do I select which object? I can see on your's there is an option for which button on the mouse, if it's single clicked or double clicked and which object to click on, but mine doesn't have the which object selection?
Also I just tested my version and all it does is display the dummy puck in the middle of a white background, then disappears for a second after about 3, then reappears. My background is supposed to be black, and nothing else happens. I can't click anywhere and my cursor disappears when it goes over the layout..Pongboy2012-09-21 18:42:21

If you give it the mouse event a new window should open. Then select "on object clicked", and another window should open then at the bottom of that window click on the "object clicked" area, and you can select the object that you want.

To set your background color you need to go to the layout, and select the layers tab in the middle right area of C2. Then click on the background layer, look to the left in the properties window, click on were it says background color, and a little drop down color picker should appear. Also in the properties window make sure that were it says "initially visible" visible is selected. When the background is black you should be able to see the white puck move. If you want your cursor to be visible all the time just delete were it says set "cursor to none".

Are you trying to add parts of my game to a different game? Or are you just trying to rebuild it?

If this isn't working for you could you post your .capx for me to look at?Wink2012-09-21 19:06:43

I did those fixes and fixed some other things I overlooked, but it still hasn't changed the end result.
I'm 99.9% certain our projects match, except for some audio events I don't want to use and the sprites being different colours (they are obviously different pictures I used).
How could I still be going wrong?

I just saw your edit.
I'm trying to make my own pong game just as how you did it, since it works.Pongboy2012-09-21 19:14:08

I was just joking about the senior thesis thing before you know. I hope you didn't take it personally. I really don't care if you used the whole game for your class. Heck you can even sell or publish it if you want. But I do respect the fact that your trying to learn how to build it yourself.

When I made that game there were no tutorials on most of the mechanics. It was a lot of trial and error but that is all part of being a developer. Sometimes you just got to sit back and think because rushing things can cause simple errors like typos witch can keep things from working as intended.

I would really need to see your .capx to find the problem. Could you upload it to dropbox or something? If your worried about your artwork you could always send me the download link in my PM (Personal Message) box.

To send me your .capx you first need to save your game as a single file by clicking on that little file icon in the upper left just above were it says properties in C2. Then follow this tutorial:

Upload your game to Dropbox

Except skip the part about exporting it as a game just put your .capx in the public folder some were in dropbox, and send me the link.

Ok, I'm doing that now.
I only need to make this game to be presented for one class. I don't need to or want to publish it or sell it or claim it was my own, I just want to make a game myself. I need to be shown how to and how much I need to do so that's why I asked for a working model. I looked over your version and mine side by side and they match up perfectly. I can't see where the problem is. It just doesn't work.

EDIT
Wrong damn thing... f**k sake, hold on, I'll try and get the .capx thing.Pongboy2012-09-21 20:06:24

THIS HOPEFULLY
I appreciate you looking at this, if you DO look at this and haven't left because of all the hideous derping and retardation.

I'm still here I just have to finish a few things here at work (deadlines), and talk to my boss so it will be a little while.

Do you want the background color to be that green color you have selected or a different color?
