I'm trying to do a kind of beach volleyball game. I am still bad with usage of forces. I just learned angle movement (watched the creation of a pong game). But I would like to make more varied or ball like movement. I thought about adding image points that let the ball "bounce off" differently depending on where it hits the players. But I've got a feeling there's a better way. And it also looks weird that the ball is shooting into a direction and then just bounces off from the sky. I reckon I need to use physics and gravity for the ball then?
I also struggle with random values. I thought about putting a little random factor in the angle of the ball but it doesn't really work. When putting random(88-92) in the angle it seems to change the angle constantly.
How can I configure the controls of a second controllable unit? Do I have to do it with events or is there an easier way?
(attached pic: )I try to make a menu, and when you click on graphics I want the cursor to move to the Y point of pixelart/hd. That works. But I can't leave the menu by pressing esc. I don't know it seems like I screwed up quiet a lot of things in the code. But I tried a lot of different ways the last hour and feel like not making any progress anymore.
