Yeah, I think I'm going to have to give up. Here is the source code in case someone wants to continue work on it.

I think I fixed the game. There was a problem with the other guy picking up the ball if either action button was pressed. I have never ran into the bug Rafael got, though, so it may exist. But not in O2EM.

Fixed some stuff.
+ player can now get the ball when it's dead even if the other guy is touching it (the player still has to press fire, though.)
+ player 1 always has their own ball-getting sound and so does player 2.

I've decided to call the game "1 on 1 Basketball" since "Basketball!" was the original Odyssey˛ basketball game.

I finally got around to playing your latest version.  I like it; it's coming along.

I feel like the shot clock that was in Basketball! was vital to the competitive balance of that game.  This may be less important for your 1 on 1 Basketball because it's possible to steal the ball, but might still be needed.  Just a thought.

I came back to this game. I had a thought about solving what I was having a problem with. Then things got together until I have this version.
The basketball players had to remove their leg walking animation. Putting it in was causing problems for some reason, so I had to cut it.
One thing to add still is the shot clock. I don't know how I am going to do this. I think I'll use characters 4 and 5 to display a 24-second shot clock. And I guess when it gets to 00, the ball will be dead. I'm just thinking out loud here.

Added a shot clock and fixed the shooting problem I discovered.

I animated the guys so it looks like they're actually walking. I was up until 4:30a.m. last night working on this, so let me know if you find a bug. I never did.

The game is just about complete. Let me know via e-mail (my e-mail address should be in my profile) if you want to test the game. Today I made a title screen for it.

Made some changes:

+ strength meter now working. The longer you hold the action button, the more poewerful your shot will be.

With this almost done, I'm contemplating making another sports game. Perhaps "1 on 1 Soccer". Bowling would be too hard.

Since this is most likely not going to be published, I just thought I'd share a (mostly) complete version of "1 on 1 Basketball."
