Re: Trouble with Pong

Pong is supposed to be played with a "paddle control", i.e. a potentiometer hooked up to a knob with limited travel, so it will snap instantly to whatever position you turn the knob to. A "fight stick" is a digital joystick, it's just a deadzone in the centre (no microswitch actuated) and full travel (microswitch actuated). There's nothing in between as far as the hardware is concerned. You'll get better results with an analog stick, but you won't get the original feeling without paddle controls.
