In order to make them bounce off each other I should rewrite half of the code and change much of data organisation (and there would be flicker), so that won't be done. >One thing I noticed was that there's no randomness to anything's >starting position.

Isn't it amazing how things go on without looping? :) >Are you planning on adding any >randomness, or will you depend on humans' inability to precisely >repeat the same actions twice to do it for you? There will be a lot of randomized parameters, it's just not an imporant issue at the moment. >I understand. I'll look forward to MP whenever you can get back to >it. In the meantime, I'm really enjoying watching the evolution of >this demo/game. Thanks, the critical part will be player's control and I'll need feedback on this.
