Thread: changing the speed of a ball

    This is the code I have:
    on Clipevent (load)

    if (this.hitTest(_root.gameboard.paddle)) {
    xspeed = -xspeed;

    What I am trying to do is make the ball speed up everytime it hits the paddle. I would think using a set variable with xspeed=xspeed+(5) would work, but all it does is speed it up once. Any ideas? thanks,

    xspeed = xspeed + 5

    will work. However, make sure that you use onClipEvent(enterFrame), not "load", because load executes once, while enterFrame executes with each frame that is drawn.
