@Mike:
The number one rule of web design (and pretty much all digital content creation): Don't do something just because you can.

Parallax scrolling is the <marquee> of 2012-2015 Wink

Other than that I did absolutely nothing.

Mike

I honestly don't know why, but this somehow reminded me of the default Windows XP wallpaper.


It would be so cool if you remade this in your game

For everybody else it's various degrees of 'fun' to level up, right? persecutioncomplex

We still have medals to think about Wink

create assets as I go.

FTFY.

Your game isn't going to have a lot of character if you just buy the assets somewhere.
Either make them yourself or hire an artist. Pointing

Finished my MiniLD #56 game. The source code is absolutely terrifying but the gameplay came out pretty good.

I think he's purposely trying to break certain parts of the forum.
In the WIDT thread he gave himself a medal after toying around a bit, and the fact that he has 'leet' posts seems a bit trolly.

Riven, please do something about this whenever you can.

-snip-

This is a little hard to answer because most people don't advertise the fact that they use Java. Minecraft is the obvious go-to answer.

-snip-

Minecraft is NOT the go-to option in my opinion, it's just a bunch of blocks with some... meh textures.

In my opinion, polish and consistency are more important than realism.
You can still have a game with a 'simple' art style and say it has good graphics, because it's consistent.

Look at TF2 for example:


Sure, it isn't the most realistic thing in the world, but it's still incredibly polished and consistent.

I'm not a big fan of Minecraft's textures either, but they're still consistent enough to be called 'good' IMO. The overall polish of the GUI, items, particles and textures are what make it the go-to answer for this question.

Hell, even if something like VVVVVV or Love+ were written in Java I'd still say that they were the best looking Java games out there, just because of their consistency. I know I'm completely breaking away from the question here, but it doesn't have to be 3D to be considered 'good'.

Taking your project away from the only community that may have some interest when you have virtually no users seems a bit silly.

I've met far more Java game developers outside of JGO than I have here, so I wouldn't necessarily say that JGO is the only place where people would enjoy it. There are plenty of other communities out there to spread the library to, JGO itself is still a pretty small community no matter which way you look at it.

It isn't like we're just going to stop talking about the library altogether, it's just that we want to help clean up the forum a bit and encourage people to focus on other projects. I personally don't feel like shoving the library down everybody's throats, especially with some of the recent rule changes regarding topics like these.

If people are that interested in the development, they can go read the update blog themselves. Pointing

Razer

Well there's your problem.



Anyway, there are a ton of reasons why mechboards are 'better' than membrane keyboards, I wrote a long post about them here. But in the end it's really just personal preference.

I've found the blue switches to be very... Clicky. Too clicky in fact. I'm used to bottoming out keys like I would on membrane boards, but I'm slowly switching back to Cherry MX Browns which are allot easier to press, and make me type allot faster. But really, it won't make you immediately better at coding, it's just a personal preference.

You obviously haven't used buckling springs before, they're much clickier. Tongue
You might enjoy Topre switches, but they're a bit expensive.

Kinda over-did it really. persecutioncomplex

You can never have too much Portal.

How's the trackball? I always thought those were neat, but have never used one.

Absolutely amazing, been using them for 3 years and have never gone back.

Tonight I plan on adding a basic inventory system + actual player sprites.



Oh, and to Riven:
I found a little flaw in the post system. I can still show animated GIFs without the player by adding an extra character to the end of the URL Wink

Got annoyed at how awkward the controls were becoming in my game, decided to add controller support.

Made a warning screen because of this, took 2.5 g'damn hours to make.

I totally didn't steal this idea from Super Meat Boy Tongue

I also bought some Taco Bell for everybody in #JGO.

Where is Jev!?

Would type up another keyboard rant, but your hero Jeviny is tired and feeling sleepy. Tongue
Just buy a mechanical keyboard and be done with it.

Speaking of keyboards, I actually found maggots all over my desk and keyboard today.
