Just a little amateurish program that I made to relieve stress caused from bad drivers.
Endless Pong. Just what the doctor ordered.
With a randomize chance added to the bounce calculations... meaning, IT'S KRAZY.

MERRY X-MAS 2017

Rage quitted after 5 minutes

Can someone explain why Window's not trust DarkBasic executables? Is it because of its use of embedded DLLs?

Hmm? Good question. I don't seem to have problems passing my own exe's across to my other W10 machine (note to self: check that that is indeed the case ). Perhaps it's the result of a recent update? Windows has an irritating habit of meddling with my personal settings every time I install a significant update - especially the layout of my Start menu which I usually try to keep clear, relevant, and uncluttered . In fact this particular exe is the first time I've seen Windows Defender do anything - it's usually Norton interfering but wasn't this time. Perhaps DD has sneaked in some code to access the Internet - for legitimate purposes of course .

I have found that certain things like producing network traffic or writing/modifying files are much more likely to trigger warnings.

From Windows/antivirus standpoint, the application is consisered new/0 day, its unknown/not seen by many systems, unsigned/from an unknown publisher, may be creating suspicious network and/or filesystem activity, and so generally has a very low trust factor

Both windows and my antivirus are always complaining about the compiled DBP executables. Without anti-virus exceptions in place, any newly compiled executable from DBP gets scanned upon execution, automatically closed, the restarted.

Any attempt at running an DBP executable presents new end users with reasons to distrust and to be concerned. Windows' indicates that the software publisher is unknown, so OK, let me just compile something from Microsoft's Visual Studio, I am still the same 'unknown publisher', but no issues whatsoever from the anti-virus or operating system.

Oh well. All for the greater good and protection of the end user's equipment.

This was made/compiled on Windows XP Professional 2002 with Service Pack 3 if that make any difference in determining the difficulty of running the program.
Thanks to all the homeboyz that tried and/or enjoyed it!
