The way I handled the paddle was that the ball only bounces if it is above the paddle, not if it is in the middle of the paddle.
just make the balls Y location equal the top of the paddle

if this is able to determine what side the ball contacts the block i think that same mechanic be used for a platforming engine, charlo still has the source up on snet. its all done with paint commands

Wow, looking good! :D It's great to see a thriving hub of developers again. I'm not too well at present, but when I recover I'll start a devlog for my game as well.

Progress made!  I successfully added a second level and managed to eradicate all bugs associated with it (including powerups not disappearing).  The tedious part is going to be inputting all these levels by hand.

I am trying to work out an editor to create all the levels so I can make them easily.
I must be dreaming (wake up me wake up) How could this have happened. Tireas' cry when he found his computer fallen over in his chair with it's screen shattered.

A level editor? I didn't know GM or SC had a way to save files for things like that. How would you make it work?

GM has a command called FILEO WRITE I think. I am not using GM though I am using processing which is way more powerful. It has objects and multidimensional arrays.

SC has READFILE, WRITEFILE, OPENFILE, and CLOSEFILE commands.  I used them to create a level editor in another project of mine.  It actually works out quite well.

I don't think the level editor is gonna happen, all my time between now and the contest is devoted to making levels.  Hopefully I can throw in a few more powerups before then as well.

Big news.  I got an internship doing web programming at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  It's 20 hours a week, and when you take school into account I'm not going to have very much time to work on this.  Luckily the game is perfectly playable right now.  So my main tasks now are to do five(ish) more levels and to fix bounce detection.  No crazy feature additions or anything.   ;D

Finished the last level tonight.  It's a toughie.  Also did some menu graphics and stuff.  I've fixed bounce detection for the most part, but due to how I'm detecting corners, sometimes the ball will destroy the brick without bouncing.  It's less buggy than it was, though.  So I just need to add a winning condition, which should be easy since I already have high scores in place.

I am not having as much progress as I still don't even have a first level. I want to get the editor finished but I am still trying to finish power ups. Boy, if only I wasn't kept from working so long. I am probably not gonna have a finished game in time.
