The purposes of this project are numerous. Firstly, it's a great way (and excuse) to learn SDL. Moreover, I need something to keep me occupied in my C++ class at school while the rest of the class is learning what '+=' does.
Eventually, I'd like to replicate 4 Player Pong and include network support.
This project has ended in favor of glpong.
SDL is nice, but OpenGL is nicer. I'm still using SDL for the Windowing system, input, and loading images; but OpenGL is going to be doing the main drawing. It doesn't do much currently, but some objectives for this project are:
- Learn OpenGL
- Networked multiplayer
- 4 player support
- Allow for multiple balls at a time

This project has ended in favor of glpong3d.
This project attempts to offer the the feel of the flash game curveball but do it in C and OpenGL. Instead of 1 player versus the computer as in curveball, glpong3d will only support 2 player games by way of networked multiplayer.
