Hi,

I have a little program which bounces a ball around the screen.

I have a paddle at the bottom of the screen which bounces the ball back.

When the ball hits the right side of my paddle it bounces to the right side of the screen. which is what I want

But, when the ball hits the left side of my paddle the ball still bounces to the right side of the screen, I would like it to go to the left.

Any help would be appreciated.

The problem in your code is here:


Specifically: if ax<right-12 where it needs to be more than instead of less than.

When that happens to me I know it's a nightmare. Going through line by line to see if you can find the problem but you can't cause it all looks like it should work. I feel your pain
