So, as some of you might have already seen, I'm working on a breakout style game as my first project. It was working fine when I had the ball being released automatically, but I set it so that the ball follows the paddle at first and is only released after the space bar is pressed. Even though the process seem the same, now when the ball is released, it always goes horizontally instead of the angle I specified. I basically have the events set like this:
If variable "Played" is 0, when Spacebar is pressed;
> Set Playing to 1;
> Set angle of motion of the ball to something between 45 and 135;
> Set ball's movement speed to 300;
I see nothing wrong with it, yet this always happens. And then, if I have the paddle next to a wall, the ball bounces up.
Here's a link for the exported game. And one for the .capx.
Thank you for the help.
