Second Release v1.1 4-16-2009

After much feedback about a problem with the ball leaving the left ramp, I decided to tackle that problem.

I couldn't get the ball to leave the ramp in course of normal game play on my end, so I created a kicker at the bottom of the ramp to kick a ball up the ramp at a ludacriss speed, and I was able to troubleshoot the problem.

It turns out there must be a slight problem with the VP physics, concerning a concave wall.

The curved wall on the topside of the ramp, would let a ball just drift through every now and then, about every 5 balls kicked up there, or so.

I added a second wall on the outside of the curve, and added a hit event to the main wall, that kills the balls y velocity, and its z veleocity, so that it only travels in the x direcion (around the curve).

I did that first, and the ball still every now and then creeped through the left side of the ramp, and spilled onto the top of the plastic to the left of the ramp.

Once I added the second outside wall, it never happend again.

Thanks all for the feedback!
