I finally got a new graphic card and now I can run Direct X 8 programs! So I went to the site direct 4 vb and got a tutorial and made this Asteroid game. I was just wondering if this is good or bad for a first try at it because my friends dont like it. Anyway here it is:

The first time I ran it a saw an asteroid quickly go from one side to the other then it said 'you lose' before i could do anything.
Maybe my computer runs too quick or something for this game, because each time after that that I ran it, it says 'you lose' immediately.

Well the updated one seems to do the same. :confused:
Maybe you could put a delay of like 1-2 seconds before the asteroids appear on the screen, and also put the ship in the middle of the screen instead of half-off the screen?

Just start moving your ship with the arrow keys right when the game starts. The reason it is saying you lost is because the asteroids are hitting your ship. Yes, putting the ship in the middle, I think would be a good idea.
