I have performed some captures of the signals using a logic analyzer.

With the paddle just touching the left side of the game screen the reading is 153 in decimal
With the paddle just touching the right side of the game screen the reading is 307 in decimal

I am considering the "standard size" paddle which is the one that games begin with. With the enlarged paddle the range should be a shorter while the reduced size paddle should provide a wider range.

The problem is that the game Arkanoid games have wide borders and a score bar, so they don't cover the full range of the real paddle.

If a clone is designed to cover just that range, it won't be usable with anything else.

Ok, what I meant to do (but failed miserably, lol) was to show that despite the variances found in the values presented by the paddles of other users, all of them were within the range used by the game Smile
