Best luck with your new professional life and thanks for all you've done here !

... I'm really curious about this pastpixels thing Smiley

I'm not sure to join yet, but this contest is addictive... 

So may be if I have enough spare time I'll try and propose a kind of old style vertical  SMUP

When you have a doubt with adsense, just ask Google : they usually reply quickly and than you know if your idea is safe or not ... but NEVER click (even once) in your own ads.

What's nice with that system is that once you have a working web site, money just comes in... you just have to learn how to increase your positionning in search engines on a few keywords (that's the hardest part, and it takes time to drive traffic).

7  Discussions / Business and Project Management Discussions / Re: Can independent Java game developers make a buck (or two)? on: 2007-10-26 16:35:45
Well I've made a few bucks (more than $5000 actually) with Jack Flowers, from a gametrust contest last year but the game hasn't been released yet (GT having been bought by a larger company).

Definitely not enough to live but a nice income nonetheless...

8  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Re: JOGL Applets and JOGLAppletLauncher on: 2007-06-11 19:54:19
Yes, possibly something like that is happening.
I have got slightly further now though. I've managed to get my app running in Firefox. This time the app runs at approx. the right speed (a bit slow, but not too bad, say 80% frame rate), however it only does this for about a second, then it pauses for a few seconds, then runs for a second etc etc.
All very strange!!

Hmm, things like that used to happen 2 years ago with old ATI cards (or drivers). are you using one of these ?

Also, avoid putting too much heavy code in the constructor, and rely on the applet standard design patterns (init(), start(), stop(), destroy() )

I'm also interested, but currently too busy to work on that subject  Sad

Java needs a DX binding to attract developpers from outside our community, once they're in, there are many chance everybody will benefit from their contributions.

just in case, try and cleanup your internet cache (FF and java plug-in)

also check that the jogl.jar is the first in the jar list of your applet

16  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Re: JOGL + Applets on: 2007-03-12 19:45:17
Well, you definitely need to read some background about applets... so here are some hints...

Applet are meant to behave nicely within their browser, that's why you have to follow the init(), start() stop() and destroy() pattern.

An Applet is a general container (like JFrame) , so your GLCanvas should be added into it  (let's say ifrom the init() method).

Than the animator should get started from the applet.start() method, and stopped each time stop() is invoked (may happen many times, for example in FF when the user switches navigation tabs).

Hope it helps.

17  Games Center / Archived Projects / Sudoku applet on: 2007-03-08 12:48:38
Hi !

There's a new Sudoku applet at javapause !

It's an old project of mine (I planned to add more features, like an online score by sudoku grid, but never had enough time for that).

If the game is appreciated, there will be new grids available every day (2 or three at least), as I've written a nice grid generator supporting various levels of difficulty.

Any feedback welcome !

Thanks, I had forgotten about this applet thread,

I'm going to test cleanup from the applet.stop() and see what it does, I'll report my tests here later

19  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Re: Zoltar's Return return - JOGLAppletLauncher demo on: 2007-02-21 14:24:20
Ken (or anyone else), could you have a look at the error log (from thijs) and suggest me something please ? I'm a bit lost  Huh

In the game, the canvas is added from the init() method of the applet, and removed from the destroy() method.
The game loop uses the FPSAnimator class, and animator.stop() is invoked from the applet.stop() method. (so everything should happen in the EDT)

I've tried to release every display list and texture objects before removing the canvas, but it doesn't change anything.
I've also tried not removing the canvas, but the crash also happens

The strange thing is that the game doesn't crash on exit when you just display the menu, and then change of page (it starts crashing only when the game has been displayed, even only for a few seconds of play).

I've also tried removing sound, but as expected it doesn't change anything.

I'm sure it's related to that game (Jack Flower doesn't crash on exit when played as an applet) but I don't know why...

Any ideas ?

20  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Re: JSR-231 1.1.0 Release Candidate 3 Released on: 2007-02-20 19:40:37
Thanks !

if you just run Pack200 on the (signed) jogl.jar in the webstart archive, you'll get the same result as these .pack.gz files.

IIRC last year there was a repack needed between two signings (thus my request).

21  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Re: JSR-231 1.1.0 Release Candidate 3 Released on: 2007-02-19 10:33:23
Also, thanks to the staff at O'Reilly, Pack200 compression is now enabled for JOGL. If you are running with a Java SE 5.0 or later Java Web Start or Java Plug-In client, you will automatically download the pack200-gzip compressed versions of the jar files, which are considerably smaller than the versions compressed with normal zip compression. We're additionally going to look into ways to reduce the size of jogl.jar even further.

Ken, is it possible to have access to these signed p200 gzipped files from the download section of jogl ?

I'd like to put them on my web server for JOGLAppletLauncher usage, and the best way to do that seems to get them from an official distribution, like the non p200 ones.

Many thanks !

22  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Re: Zoltar's Return return - JOGLAppletLauncher demo on: 2007-02-19 08:13:56
Yes, I really have to find out why this happens.

Do you have an hs_err_pid file describing the crash ?

(in other news : reported working on mac mini with OS X Tiger (java 5))

23  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Zoltar's Return return - JOGLAppletLauncher demo on: 2007-02-18 16:17:25

I've refreshed my old game Zoltar's Return, and put it at

This game is just now a proof of concept for JOGLAppletLauncher (I don't plan on improving it) and could be used to try and find bugs related to this technology.

Already tested here with Java 1.4 on mac, and 1.6 on win XP, (there are still some occasional crashes on page exit).

Any feedback welcome !

The game is here :

So the $200,000 prize has been given to Andy Darley last weekn who has found "the cube"
Has anyone here been part of that quest ?  (well, except Adam who was part of mind candy IIRC)

What's your feedback about that game ?

26  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / Re: JOGLAppletLauncher and DirectDraw disabling message on: 2007-02-09 16:15:02
yes, opening the control panel fixed the problem

(however, doing this cannot be expected from an end-user)

27  Java Game APIs & Engines / JOGL Development / JOGLAppletLauncher and DirectDraw disabling message on: 2007-02-09 14:50:28

Testing again a JOGL applet with latest JRE (1.6) and jogl 1.1 rc2,  the noddraw flag is never set (the message always come back at every browser restart, even if I reply yes)

I haven't been able to test it with an 1.5 version yet to see if if still works there.

can anyone test the jogl applet demo and report this behaviour here ? ( )

28  Java Game APIs & Engines / Java Sound & OpenAL / Re: Recording Audio Via JWS and XFer Using ftp on: 2007-02-09 13:46:21
Hi, about ftp, the basic class can manage single files transfers

URL url=new URL(";type=i");

then you get an output stream with
cnx = url.getConnection();
out = cnx.getOutputStream()

and you can write your data into it.
(don't forget to close the connexion when you're done)
