I'm currently doing a personal project of making a breakout game into a warlords like game (the old arcade game). Basically to get a general idea of what I'm talking about, see the screen shots here: http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/warlords/warlords.htm
What I'm trying to do is to use the code from this tutorial ( http://www.mrsunstudios.com/2008/07/...in-as3-part-4/
) to make a version of that, only with maybe 1 or 2 players instead of 4. I've been having trouble moving the paddles vertically because for some reason the ball always stick to the paddle.
Any clue on how I can make the paddle work in a vertical position? and maybe some help on how make it 2 players (with two paddles)?
