They have changed the Sun forums now too. The new design is making my eyes bleed.
I agree, their CSS color swap is hard to look at.

Oh, and please no, don't go with a red theme. I know I'm not too active around here, but here's one little vote to keep the blue theme. It's much more calming.

I don't like the Oracle site too much, it's a little to "noisy."

Nah, Ipod never supported Java so I doubt this does either. Maybe though with Oracle taking over, they(Oracle) will get JavaFX in shape, and maybe wooh over Apple.

I wonder if it supports Flash or Flash mobile. I suppose so. Apple would be pretty stupid not to support Flash on something like this.

--Edit--I just read an article on Yahoo about the IPad. Nope no Flash. I wonder what Apple is thinking. Like people won't want to play their internet Flash games on it?

LWGL plug-in would be fantastic. I think that would make for some truly awesome Java applets, plus a plug-in could be used in JNLP for desktop games.  Grin Grin Grin Grin
4  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Wasting my life programming ? on: 2009-12-16 00:52:40
I've felt that way. Since I discovered Java and programming in general from my interest in robotics(Lego robotics that is), I've logged hours on the computer. It bugs me that I can't really show anything for all that time, but I also look at it another fashion.

I think programming and especially game programming is like art for the common people. I would assume that the great artists and musicians that created great works of art thought about their art all the time. For a large time of earth's history only the rich, fanatics who were ok being super poor, or the truly talented got jobs as artists and were able to spend their lives creating pieces of art. Today though, we have Democracy and a middle class that permits more of the population to engage in creation of art. Also, like some other people said on here, there are other hobbies out there that just deteriorate the brain's abilities like TV watching or constant video game playing. Programming forces us to think and to expand our knowledge. True most of it is knowledge of computers and technology concepts, but IMHO computerized-technology has created a new universe of materials that humanity is slowly accepting as almost "real."

Also, I'm a Christian, and I believe that when the Bible said humans were created in the "image of God" that really means humans are creators like God is a creator. So, can we really help thinking about our creations all the time? God thinks about His:humans.

fails and burns here on linux 64, think javafx doesn't support the OS but a decent error would be nice.

No, there is no support for 64bit. I messed around with 64bit Ubuntu for awhile, trying to get JavaFX to work on it.

How is it possible that Flash can do this so easily, so rightly, and Java can't?

Really. After all these years of Java, the client side still sucks. At least though, Sun is doing something about it. JavaFX is only a year old.

As a side note, this app probably ran very well for me because my installation of Win7 is clean and brand new; and my pc is packed with top hardware. (I wouldn't program on anything else)

And which fool decided it was a good idea to use it for this website?

I'm just throwing this out there, but I wonder if the Olympics are seen as a venue for new RIA platforms. The Bejing Olympics were powered by Silverlight, and now the Vancouver Games will be powered be JavaFX.

Well, you probably have granted Sun's certificate. I had to [accept] it as usual.

Ah, ok.

I will scratch though what I said about Vancouver not too serious about this app. Apparently the entire Vancouver RIA platform is based on JavaFX.
http://www.vancouver2010.com/more-2010-information/about-vanoc/sponsors-and-partners/vancouver-2010-sponsors/official-suppliers/

I wonder if this means that Sun will release JavaFX 1.3 soon. I can't see the Olympics choosing an immature platform like JavaFX to power their client apps. Not that 1.3 is going to instantly mature JavaFX, but it, I hope, will make JavaFX better.
8  Java Game APIs & Engines / JavaFX / Re: Is JavaFX dead as well? on: 2009-12-13 03:57:06
Pretty slick. Ran very well on my Windows 7 pc, except for, of course, the start-up time. I hope Prism helps that out. I don't think though the Olympics people think this app will have very many hits. 
1:They are using the regular JavaFX loading logo.
2:The app says powered by JavaFX.HuhHuh What in the world is up with that. I quietly wonder if Sun paid them to do this, so someone besides Indaba would use FX.

But, I'd say it is one of the better JavaFX apps I've seen. Plus, no signatures to clear!! Maybe Sun will get the idea for their own site.

“Knock, knock.”
“Who’s there?”
very long pause….
“Java.”

That's a good one.

Sad, but true. Especially with that FX.

I have just switched over to Ubuntu 9.10. I think Linux finally has a user-experience to truly compete with Windows. By the way, I'm not an intrinsic Windows hater. I have used Windows since '95, but I like getting things done. I have found that Ubuntu does just that.
11  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: From Reddit: **** you Sun! Bundling trialware with the latest Java update is BS! on: 2009-10-22 23:50:03
Hi guys,
I was just prompted to update Java. I thought I'd show you the two screens I got. Here is the first dang advertisement. OpenOffice.


But here is the really pathetic screen.



By the way, the Yes, I want Bing Toolbar for Internet Explorer was automatically checked. Oh, and another thing. The image quality of the UI installer is total crap. The images I inserted here are straight crops of a screen shot, and my I don't have my resolution at 800*600 I hope Oracle will get the Java deployment experience better. Sigh

12  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: Java 7 - somebody using it ? on: 2009-10-07 00:53:25
Gee, that new pipeline does sound exciting! If it really works and makes use of hardware acceleration, image what we will be able to do with applets.  Grin Maybe for some applets, GL rendering can be replaced with software rendering, and that means no more stupid security dialogs just for native libs.

Pretty nice man: Awesome loading time!

Here
Intel Quad Core 2.66GHz
ATI Radeon HD 2600XT graphics card.

Low Quality:
137FPS

High Quality:
65FPS

And it doesn't matter what quality mode I'm in, Processor load is around 50%. It varies going from 45-66. I got that stat from the task manager in Vista. I suppose that is the way to get that?
14  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Google announces Android Developer Challenge 2 (big prizes!) on: 2009-07-17 15:44:58
I am learning Android for this. This is really a labor for a gamble on people's opinions. Why did they have to make Android some complicated?  Huh
15  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: The end of Sun? on: 2009-07-17 15:43:56
Gee. He is really gloomy. It's almost depressing how he writes it. I just hope ORACLE continues with a free jdk and jre.

I've lost a ton of productive time due to vista

Same here. I haven't developed a lot on my Vista pc, but whenever I do I go screaming back to my XP laptop.

Or have you ever booted it up from sitting shut-down all night, and it just hangs? Grrrr.

Oh, and that hanging issue is on a pc with Quad Cores, and 4GB of RAM.

Hi I tried to run the WebStart, but I get this error. Huh

Here is what it says under the Exception tab:
Quote
MissingFieldException[ The following required field is missing from the launch file: <jnlp>]
   at com.sun.javaws.jnl.XMLFormat.parse(Unknown Source)

Also, the Launch file displayed under the Launch File tab doesn't appear to be a jnlp file. It has a lot of other code in it.

I downloaded the Jar file. This is a really great game! The AI is so hard to beat though--I wasn't able to beat it.

That's like Adobe using a Java player to play a video on their site?

Yah, but in Sun's case their smart. If Adobe did that, I'd wonder if they lost their minds.  Grin

Which kind of game do you plan to make?

I'm not planning on making a game for the website. I want more of an "outdoor" interface. My idea is to have like a view of a large hill and maybe a lake at the bottom with some forest around. Essentially a "peaceful" outdoors area. On top of this rendering of the world I will "blit" or maybe create 3D UI components that the user can use for getting information from the site. So, my aim isn't a game, but a view of a outdoor world with a UI on top.

That's pretty cool. I didn't try out much gameplay, but for Java2D it looks good. I thought Java2D was too slow for graphics like that, maybe I'm wrong.

What did you use to make the windows installer? Is that IzPack?

I don't advise you to work on a new PC because it drives hard to notice performances problems. Personally I use an old shit with a graphics card made in 2003 to be sure that my minimal requirements are enough to play in good conditions.
Ok, that makes sense.

Are you stuck to JPCT? Which kind of game do you plan to make?
No, not necessarily. Its jar is small and easy to use, so I like those features for an applet. My applet though would be outdoors, so no portals.

I'll post what I want to make later, I have to go.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions everyone. That PC is pretty slow, so I have some work to do. I have a newer gaming pc and going from my desktop Dell to my new Dell laptop is like leaping forward in time, so to speak.

Anyone else have suggestions, I'm open. Smiley
23  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: What does the average user have, as in graphical power? on: 2009-05-31 20:09:37
Ok, thanks!

I have a Dell 4600 old desktop pc

specs:
WindowsXP SP1 Pentium 4 2.66Ghz no hyper-threading  512MB Ram    NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 AGP8X

Do you think most average users will have more or less graphics power than this machine has?
24  Discussions / General Discussions / What does the average user have, as in graphical power? on: 2009-05-31 17:33:18
Hey all,
I am thinking about developing an applet for my church website, and using 3D graphics(using jpct) in it. People that access this website, though aren't necessarily gamers, and therefore don't necessarily have high-end graphics equipment. So, has there ever been a "survey" to find out how much graphical power the average web visitor has? Or, maybe is there some site that does this periodically?
I want the applet to look good, but I don't want to put so much in that most people won't be able to run it.
Anybody know where this info may be available?
Thanks
Jman2.
