I think I will try and work on this challenge even though I did not complete Pong on time. I did finish a version shortly after on my own using C# with XNA framework 2.0. The collision detection was not perfect and there was no computer player but I was able to get things on the screen and able to move so it was a start
I am disappointed that I had to go to C# in order to get it running. I wanted to work on C++ skills! Anyways I think I will give this a shot, the challenges do get me motivated and trying is never wrong.
