Pong hacking/adaptation? (noob)

Mon Feb 10, 2014 2:17 pm

Hi I haven't coded before but I want to adapt the game pong to add music and replace the ball graphic with an image of my brother's head.

Any tips on starting out? Is this straightforward?

If you want to learn python, there is a tutorial for pong here:

http://www.linuxuser.co.uk/tutorials/ma ... spberry-pi

I haven't quite read through it, but a few quick searches on Google aboutpython and you sshould be able to do it. Alternatively you could use scratch if this is your first time programming

Again, I haven't read it, but it should work.

You could just take any pong source code out there which uses Bitmap resources and replace whatever you want.

I approve of this project. Make sure to add an 'aaargh!' sound effect every bounce.
note: I may or may not know what I'm talking about...
