1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: New Java 2D Game tutorial at planetalia on: 2004-11-22 08:47:21
Well though I really love the tutorial, there is something that doesn't work. Eclipse tells me that this method does require other arguments than the ones you wrote. You can find what I mean here:
in, line 27. This method does not work because it needs other arguments. What would be correct then?
Note that I use Java5.
26      public void paint(Graphics2D g){
27        g.drawImage( spriteCache.getSprite(spriteName), x,y, stage );
28      }

Thank you in advance, Alex

This is exactly what you are looking for (at least I think *g*).

Hey Alex,
This tutorial rocks! It is very cool. Actually it is exactly what I was looking for. The idea of building the code step-by-step (and not vice versa, or just providing some snippets from time to time) is excellent. To me, there is no better way to learn than yours! Great work. I would love to see new tutorials from you, just in this style... maybe about LWJGL or network game programming. Would be great!

Now after completing your tutorial I'll do Kev's and then try to work with Brackeen's book.

Thank you for your nice work!

PS: Did I already mention how good your tutorial is? Wink

Hi Mike!
Well, actually that is me. You may find other forums, where I post, too.
These are:
Ok, in the last forum my nick is Alexander84 instead of Alex84. Someday we might really program a game together! I've added your email adress to my adress book.

Maybe we could put it this way:
Brackeen's book is worth learning Java . Cheesy

I got Brackeen's book but in my opinion, it is really not for newbies, but for at least intermediates. If you only know Java basics (like me), stay away from it for a while and get knowledge of threads, exceptions, Swing, LinkedLists and other advanced topics first. You should be very familiar with java, I think.

Has anybody read Java2 Game Programming by Thomas Petchel? On german Amazon, it only received good reviews and it seems to cover also beginner-stuff.
What do you think about this book?

All answers are appreciated.

Hi everybody!
Mike introduced himself here, so I wanted to that, too. My goal is not to build YAFS3DE (yet-another-fancy-smancy-3-D-engine Smiley) but to start with some simple 2D racing, platform and shoot'm up games. Then, as my big goal, I want to do a Fallout-clone.
@Mike: you tried Darkbasic? What do you think about it? Why didn't you stay with it and now use Java?
Maybe we two could start out and make our own game together, some kind of "the two Newbies' first game" Smiley

What do you think?
