Welcome to DragonPong!
DragonPong is a multiplayer game of pong. You either create, or connect to, a server and pong it out with your friend!
Simply extract the zip file. Within the folder are several .bat files, all starting the game in various languages provided by players of the game. Starting the main executable runs the game in English.
Use up and down arrows to select a menu option and press enter to select one.
Host a server
To host a server, you will need to have the port of your choice forwarded in your router. There are many ways to do this, including the MiniUPNP program or the configuration page on your router. If those are not available to you, you can install the Hamachi virtual private network program and join a network with your friend. Hamachi will give you a separate IP which the connecting party will need to input in place of your actual public IP.
Join a server
Simply enter the IP and port of the server to connect to.
Selecting game mode
This only applies to the server host. Upon connection of your other party, you will be asked to select a game mode. The short game runs for 11 goals, the long game for 21.
Characters give some humor to the game. They have different remarks they will make throughout play. When asked to choose your character, select it with left and right, and press enter to select.

Translating the game
To translate the game, simply create a new file in the lang folder. Use an already existing language as a template. Make sure to keep the lines in tact! To translate the menus, do the same in the menu folder. Once you're done, simply drop me a line and I will update the game with it.
