Pong “meets sound”

Posted: June 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

Today I added sounds to Pong,  in certain parts of the game.

Using free sounds effects, I have given the ball a sound on impact against the borders and the bat a sound on impact with the ball.

I did this using a audio function to reacte upon impact situations in the code.

To see the game in action, look below:

Pong meets Android

Posted: May 31, 2012 in Uncategorized

Today we continued to work on our pong project.

 

 

We had created Icon images to be used as icon shortcuts to the pong game. We had created them using “GIMP”, and is was sized to different screen ratios –  tablet, pc, phone ect

 

Having then added the images to the pong file folder, we were  able to upload our work onto an Android enabled phone.

 

 

The project successfully went onto the phone, and work, but it still needs a bit of “tweaking” to make it work nicely.

Tweaking with Pong

Posted: May 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

Today, I continued to tweak and  build upon the pong game.

I have added some new “if” variable coding, which will change the size of the ball when the players’ scores  reach a certain number. I think adding this feature makes the game more of a challange and more entertaining.

Return of Pong

We have finally finished making our version of the game “pong”.

After completing it, I shown it to an audience and we played each other to test the game.

It was a great experience, and I really enjoyed it. It was also very beneficial when they had given our class feedback of what they thought of the game.

I think that me and the other class members can use these pointers to further develop the game some more, and make the game even better.

Pong Processing

Posted: May 10, 2012 in Uncategorized

Today we progressed with making the pong game by creating most of the fundamentals of the game.

On the left hand side of the screen is all of the coding used to make this project. I have commented each line of code to give a brief overview of what it does and to make it more understandable.

More Processing Power

Posted: April 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

Today’s class involved working using “Processing”.

 

We were able to write some  coding to make a kind of “Paint” program/application.

 

 

 

Today we had an introductionary class on using the software “Processing”. It’s a multimedia, multi-platform program and is primarily used to create apps for the “Android” smart phone.

 

 

Using Processing, I have created basic shapes and alterations using a coding structure and create simple animations.

Showcase

It is now coming to the end of the class, and her is a showcase of all the work completed 🙂

Prezi

Prezi is an online-slider service which is used to create slideshows presenting ideas, media and creation.

Class PreziThis is a screenshot of a class collaboration of using Prezi. We had to add refferances to our work by using images, notes ande other things of the sort.

Remarks: I enjoyed using all of the subject software, including Prezi and I would like to further use them.

Creating Vector Images

Posted: December 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

Today we created a vector image of a logo using the Gimp software. Initially we created a logo by hand, and then altered it using GIMP. We had imported our image and created a new layer over it to design a new version. Having completed the design, we have now upload the new image onto our wordpress blog’s and have also put it on our Prezzi slide shows.

Current Work

Today I used GIMP software to manipulate imagery in a variety of ways.

I had designed some pictures using the various tools available. I croped my original image and change the colour properties to broaden it’s look.  I also used the Pen Tool to make a letter and change it’s shape and axis, and to then add to it using tools like “gradient”.  I also started to learn more about the differences in picture types like between bitmap and vector imagery. While fiddling, I transformed my image by moving it about and increasing and decreasing pictures’ size.

 

 

 

What I would like to do in the next session: I would like to learn more about wordpress.com and to also learn about game design.
