I think the (not so eloquent) point being made by those quotes is that talk is great, but results are what most people find interesting. No matter how great an idea is, it's value is about $0.10 per dozen; real worth is found in actual implementations. While I wouldn't take the reaction personally, it's based on the perception that JGO is being overrun with posts that are more talk than action, the advice it conveys is actually pretty sound.

Currently not much is actually developed, but I hope to have quite a good amount more to share with you all here shortly. Please feel free to leave feedback and suggestions/criticism.

It's probably better to wait until you have something more than a logo and a concept to share. You won't get much (if any) useful feedback until you've gone beyond that because honestly, there's nothing to really give feedback on. You also lessen the chances of getting "backhanded compliments" as (apparently) happened here.

I added a side note about this. It's not really about having something to show for me, I need some connection to people or I will lose interest. I figured a topic would be the best thing for me. Apparently others speak before they think, which is why the nasty thing was removed.

Wooow, awesome logo dude! I absolutely LOVE it, your game is like awesome, the story line is very good and the simulations are exceptional.
For example: when you are flying in that airplane it feels like.. like reality!
I am speechless, these simulations, without even using a physics library, I see a lot of talent here, the ground units move smooth as well!
Yes, that logo is a true piece of (art)work (in progress), kudos to you, if that logo wasn't In Progress you could have showcased it!

Now it seems that interesting posts is being drowned out by posts like this:
  • Wouldn't this type of game be so cool? I'm definitely going to make it!

Get something more specific to talk about. Start working on that project you keep talking about. Post here when you accomplish something particularly interesting, or when you get stuck.
What do you want to accomplish this summer? Get to work.
The point of this thread is to tell people what I'm actually working on... I've got some things done they just aren't ready to be tested.

Its seems like a really cool idea! Any information on what you're using to create it? OpenGL? Java2D?

Also, I noticed your profile picture looks a on like notches Smiley


(How do I make this larger?)

You make images larger by putting these parameters:
[.img width=800 height=800]something.png[/img]

I do aspire to become a great developer, maybe he's influenced me more than I know. I had no idea I at the time I made it Tongue

*EDIT*
Didn't notice your question... sorry! I'm using Slick2D to make this game, it's been the best thing for me.

(How do I make this larger?)

Hello everyone! Void of Heart will be my first full-blown project. With this project I hope to advance my skills as a games designer, artist, and developer. Above is the current logo for the game, yeah I know its crap I'm a developer first and a artist second. It's still very much in the works, so this is no where near it's final form.

Void of Heart will be a 2D action-puzzle platformer that tells the story of a nameless being as it traverses through the void of its existence. During it's quest the being will be challenged by many emotional barriers that it must overcome in order to progress. Although emotions are only half of its worries. Much of the void presents danger to the being, there are many puzzles and enemies that threaten to end its journey to ever become whole again.

I'm looking forward to working my heart out on this project! (HA, Get it?) Currently not much is actually developed, but I hope to have quite a good amount more to share with you all here shortly. Please feel free to leave feedback and suggestions/criticism.

Side note: For anyone who thinks this is a waste of a thread like I've already seen in the comments, this thread is here to give me motivation. Without having some form of attachment with other people who understand this idea exists I will surely drop it... I know how my mind works better than you do so please allow me to do what I need to in order to work properly. Thanks...

Thanks for checking it out!

It's for all those inter-dimensional maths!

Jokes aside, I'd like to find out as well.

7  Discussions / General Discussions / Questions on my website rankings. on: 2014-06-19 13:44:51
So recently I received a "1 highlights" tag next to my received medals. So I clicked on it and found that I am actually listed under two categories for website rankings. I am under the "Night Owls" which fits me perfectly Smiley Night time is the best time, very peaceful. I am also under the least squishy?

Anyway here are my questions:
Are these calculated automatically or do I have some stalkers?
What the hell is "Least Squishy" supposed to mean. Cranky

Also Thank you, I'm honored Tongue Glad I'm making some form of impact whether a person noticed it or a computer.
8  Discussions / General Discussions / Game Design Advice on: 2014-06-19 13:27:34
So I've decided that I understand Java well enough now to begin programming my own games. Which is great! Problem is, I'm not entirely creative. I do have my moments of pure creative genius, but on most occasions I can hardly visualize a game at all in my mind. Now I understand this game should be small and rather easy to produce, considering this will be my first game. Regardless, I still want to give this game a certain finesse that is unique to games I create.

With that said, I would like to ask all of you fellow JGO members to discuss with me your strategies for piercing deep into your imaginations. (This should be interesting.)

There's no shame in using a Library!  Pointing

You should focus on doing whats most important, making games!
10  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: When would one be ready to create advanced game engines on: 2014-06-19 04:59:41
Yeah, I felt so dumb when I realized the point of game libraries instead of using Java2D.

Just recently BurntPizza found Mini2Dx. A lib "Inspired by Slick2D, built on LibGDX." I just recently picked this up and I would like to recommend it to you. Its a very simple lib allowing you to do much more than Java2D, and since its built on LibGDX its super fast.

I'm using it now, its great. Highly recommend.

Here you go:

11  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: When would one be ready to create advanced game engines on: 2014-06-19 04:19:12
Well you gotta think about it. A lot of knowledge has to go into creating these engines like you said.

You have to understand how engines and frameworks operate, how to optimize it to run well in the language you are using. As well as understanding data flow in order to render objects to the screen. Not to mention all the rather advanced math you will need to have learned in order to add them into the engine, more so if its 3D oriented.

Considering you're profile says you only have 7-9 months under your belt what NegativeZero said is accurate. But hey, that gives you something to work towards right?
12  Java Game APIs & Engines / Engines, Libraries and Tools / Re: mini2Dx - inspired by Slick2D, built on libGDX on: 2014-06-18 10:58:11
The setup is a bit lengthy but other than that I'm actually having an enjoyable time using it. Hopefully I'll actually release a game finally...hopefully.......maybe.

I always found LibGDX to be a bit overwhelming. Glad to see these guys took it and made it much simpler to use.

Good find!

13  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Any advice on pixel art? on: 2014-06-05 22:26:45
You should probably start by learning color theory, so that you can find a good balance of color in your pixels. Also, learn about dithering and Anti-Aliasing both help to make your pixel art look better. But really there is no wrong way to do art, you just do it. You'll get better over time.
14  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: [Slick2d] Retro-Pixel Castles - Top Down Survival Mayhem! on: 2014-06-04 10:59:24
Wow, looks really good so far!

Do you have a set time you are streaming? I'd really love to catch a few hours of its development, would be a good experience for me to have.

.... This isn't the place to discuss teenager relationship advice. Go to 4chan for that!

Having said that, welcome to puberty. You'll learn self control with experience. Wink

(Also; the simple solution is to ask her out, and will either get or not get slapped. But it's better to risk being rejected, than spend months wondering if you could of been dating.)

But it DOES affect his programming Tongue

Yeah but in what way!?!?!?! I must know.
19  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: New Personal Virtual Reality Headset System – ANTVR KIT on: 2014-06-01 07:28:47
Why is this here though? Does it utilize Java in any way or is this just a thread to market a kickstarter?

I think "Navagation" should be "Navigation" with an I instead of another A. Unless it's different for certain places, not sure.

24  Discussions / General Discussions / Java and Algebra. on: 2014-02-11 06:22:15
I love Java, both on screen and in my cup, but I'm really not all the great in Algebra. In fact I feel rather stupid when asked questions about it, for most I can't answer myself. I've realized that my ignorance with Algebra is not good, so I've really tried my hardest to learn it better but I still get tripped up on some things.

What worries me about this is my future career possibility as a programmer. Am I inevitably screwed before I can even release my first project? I really love programming, especially in Java, I can't see myself doing anything else when I am older and I really don't want to do anything else but programming and making games.

So I guess my real question is am I set to fail before I have even really began?  Huh
25  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: New to Java Game Development, Hiyo! on: 2014-02-11 06:09:17
Welcome, welcome!

I just recently started using JGO as a means to learn Java, and it definitely does not disappoint! You picked the best language and the best site. So far so good Tongue

I know the feeling man. Honestly I'm stuck in the biggest rut I've been in for quite some time and its got me rather depressed. Not sure where it came from but I can be ready to work one minute and then decide I'm not good enough to continue the next.
27  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: Anyone remember a little game called... Secret of Mana? on: 2014-01-21 02:17:35

I have the aspiration to make something that could even have an attempt to surpass SoM, while that may be an aspiration its definitely not reality xD

I don't find myself having the mindset to create something as wonderful as SoM.

Do you think they did think they could do something as that?

Thats why, you dont bealive in yourself. But i do bealive in you.

I bet you could do something way better!




I suppose you could be right, maybe one day I will. Until then I'll just have to keep learning.

Oh I hope so, no one I ask ever knows about the game. Its a shame, this thing was a masterpiece :3
30  Discussions / General Discussions / Anyone remember a little game called... Secret of Mana? on: 2014-01-17 02:11:37
I played this game as a kid (and still do) and I've come to realize that this game is just beautiful. A perfect example of what a game should convey to its audience, I think.

I've just recently beat it again, for the 5th... or... 25th or something I don't remember xD, and I still love it!

I found something really cool called Spectrum of Mana which is a tribute album for the SoM series and its lead director Hiro Isono who died just last year. You can check that out at www.spectrumofmana.com definitely something cool for all of you SoM fans to pick up. The entire album + art is free to download, or you can buy a hard copy. They even have t-shirts.

(I'm not advertising for their profit, but they do deserve it, it is just really cool.)

Such a terrible loss for me personally, Secret of Mana was the game that made me want to develop games and was one of the first I ever played as a child.

There will never be a game quite like it.
