im am making a ping pong game in visual basic 6.0 for the game, i wish to make each game last about one minute and that the person who has the highest score at the end of the game wins. how could i go about doing this?


the second part of my question is, i wish to make random boxes appear on the form, which when hit by the ball will either make the ball go faster/slower, the bats bigger/smaller and the ball bigger/smaller. how could i do this.
the bats are called shape1 and shape2. and the ball is called shape3.

i also had an idea of controlling one of the bats with the mouse but ive absolutely no idea as how to go about this. i would be greatful for some ideas.

Hi there,

-For the first part of your question:
   This can be done using Timers (an easy way) or Tickcount (Using the API)..

-For the secound part:
   You must create your own (TYPE) and define all types of boxes that you want and then create an array for these items ..   (lets say..  "Dim items as ItemType(25)"    ) then, you can randomize the items positions and type.


If you care for some Source code .. I can give you examples.
