I could only manage 5 seconds. :-) The ball really moved fast on my machine. My cpu usage never went above 5%. Maybe your high cpu usage has something to do with the amount of video card( and/or ram) you have? I have a 2Ghz Athlon, 1 gig ram, and 128 meg Radeon video card.

You probably could incorparate a variable delay, selectable by the user. If I set the delay up to 40, it was more fun. Maybe you could test the system somehow, by seeing how fast the ball moves during a delay period, and automagically set the initial delay. Then have the delay decrease as the game goes on?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
