How can I put some code here to have someone help me figure out why all my bricks aren't printing, my paddle isn't instantiating and my ball isn't moving? I need help!

  • You need to give more details on exactly what your problem is. Are you able to mark and copy stuff from your appliance? Are you able to paste from anywhere on your system to here? Have you implemented Dropbox in your appliance successfully? If your problem is only that you can't cut and paste from your appliance, you can make use of Dropbox. You'll need to set up Dropbox on your computer outside of the appliance. This will cause all of your files to copy from inside the appliance to your computer so that you can then cut and paste or otherwise manipulate your code files like any others.

Read the specs of the problem "breakout" in pset3. It is CLEARLY written as to how you are supposed to initialize the bricks. Type ~cs50/pset3/breakout and see how the colours of the bricks change in the staff's solution, as the lines or precisely the ROWS. See the number of columns. There are fifty bricks there, do you need "LOOPS" or are you okay with initializing the bricks individually? Have you seen the "walkthroughs" or the youtube links included in the pset3 specification files ? The answer lies in the question.
