Welcome to all the new forum members :)

The way the early developers dealt with these types of issues was implementing an "English" deflection. Don't ask me why it was called English, it does not make sense to me.

Basically, English paddle deflection means the ball bounces in a certain direction depending on where it hits on the paddle. Say your paddle is 100 pixels long. If the ball hits from:
1-20, deflect at a -60 degree angle
21-35, deflect at -45
36-50, deflect at -30
51-65, deflect at 30
66-80, deflect at 45
81-100, deflect at 60

This makes the angle harder to determine, but also allows the user to increase their skill at paddle placement. You do not need any extra special stuff for this to work. And you won't be hitting any 0 degree deflections since 0 is not one of the possibilities.

Wow nice! Thinking of some ways to use that, great share thanks ceosol :)

Welcome Max, the great thing about Stencyl is that you can create games and apps even with very little knowledge of coding yourself :P I am sure you will find some very experienced folks here. I've been on the forums for a few months and it's amazing how many veterans are in this community. I'm still a n00b myself, but I wish you luck with your game creation ideas.

Congrads man! Hope it all goes great for you! I've been sick for a few days so haven't been on forums. Would have volunteered as tester if I was here though! Anyway, will look for it after release and give it a go! Good luck!

Very nice, thanks! :)

I once made a tutorial for an RTS in Stencyl on my old channel, that might help you out with this!

Good Luck!
I remember that tutorial, it was a good one! :)

Many thanks for this Jon and Happy New Year!

Looks amazing, really love the interface with the orange lights that go in a circle when you click a button, and yeah, the graphics look awesome :)

Hehe, it means kind of like "horen horen" in Dutch, it just means I agree with what you said :P

Good luck with your game Grymligast, hope you enjoy using Stencyl to make it!

Many tumes when people come up with a new idea they cant figure out themselves I tend to make apecific tutorials for it. And my main rule with stencyl is:

As long as it is 2D, has limited online functions, and the designer has enough spirit to tackle ahatever comes his way, its possible =)
Hear hear! :)
