Breakout Woes

This is a minor issue but it is driving me nuts and to distraction, maybe no more nuts than normal but arrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhh!! I try playing Breakout and rhe mouse simply freezes up. I tried differnt computeres, added another mouse - thinking my mouse was old and something was wrong with it but nothing helps. I will be playing and everything is going along fine - and even the times I miss the balls on my own, I don't care but the mouse just freezes. It sticks, won't move and I can't get anywhere. I love tbhis game but this one may land me in the looney bin, Anyway, am I the only one with this pron or whatam I doing wrong?????

Thanks!!!!!

You have to watch the pointer. If the pointer comes out the side or the top or bottom and you can see it, you aren't in the game anymore and you won't be able to move. You have to keep the pointer behind the little game screen.

When I start the game I right click and then left click so I am left with a visable pointer on my game board. I can keep track of it so I don't go out of the screen.

Right click and left click, eh? Hmm... I'll have to try that and then beat your score even harder. DANG! You already beat me! Man, your eyes must have been dead after that!

My eyes are still fuzzy, going to bed now to sleep it off. Now I don't want to wake up tomorrow to see that I have a new score to beat.

I didn't know where I should post it. I noticed on the penis thread these little gold trophies by our name. I thought that I just don't pay attention.

Yeah, apparently, if you read penis without chuckling, you get an instant trophy.

I think Chocolatecoffee has one... Marko had his Chopper trophy so brutally and unavoidably taken away. He hasn't been able to rewin it. Is rewin a word? I guess if you lose once, you can never really be a winner...

(BTW, I am so getting banned any minute now... )

Well I thought that beating the highest score of 13000 to my score of 25000 would at least stay for more than a day. Now it is 40 something I wonder how long that will stay, huh.

I'm still trying to beat Schwinn at joust too. They posted the instructions on there, so now I know how... I just can't get there...

And I only got 4 hours of sleep this morning before my exam, so my eyes are already dead. I won't risk losing my eyesight completely tonight, so you're safe for now.

Besides, why should we be competing against people we know when there are people we don't know at the top of some scoreboards? Somebody has to learn to play "mars rover". The Yeti one is just nasty and I won't even bother, but c'mon now! I detroned him once- it's somebody else's turn!

See I told you, I get up in the morning and poof, again it is gone, how rude. :sad: What score do I have to beat now. It will have to wait until I am home, I can't get the high scores on my lap top.

I am fighting a migraine so maybe I amnot at my best but what do you mwan by "behind the little game screen". What little game screen? You mean the screen period? I have never seen it there. My mouse sticks in the middle, not just on the side. Usually, Breakout is an easy game or its varatiations, you know DX et al, but this one does not work like any of those. I mean - I don't mind when I loose when I miss the balls myself but when the mouse just sticks, well it seems like the fix is in or something, lol

Ok, You have the black game board. If your mouse pointer goes out of that space it will make you lose control of your paddle(or whatever you would call it).
