3  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Done with "core" Java , but now... on: 2014-03-14 12:16:40
My situation : hobbyst developer with some prior experience ( C# XNA) , cover to cover these books  :
1) HF Java
2) The terrifying 1300 pages brick : "Introduction to Java programming" by Y.Liang
The problem : now i'm facing things like  building ,deploying , xml  , Maven , Ant , etc..etc..
and i find all this stuff incredibly boring.
My question : i have to resign  and dive into these icy waters , or i can somehow avoid this punishment ?

Thanks a lot for any tip !

5  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / 3D in pure Java ? on: 2013-12-29 09:09:00
I was looking at ( not using a Matrix  Smiley ) the amazing applets uploaded by some very talented guys
in the Java4k site. Fantastic works ,imho , particularly this one : Die Z by Alan Waddington.

Reading the code and understand what's going on unfortunately  is beyond my skills.
Any tip about some 3d pure java tutorial?
The ones i have found around are only 2D.
Thanks !

7  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Interfaces and game design ? on: 2013-10-07 11:50:39
I was reading the Zechner's book ( beginning android games )  just to realize that i have to come back quickly to my Java books .
However , more than the code itself , the BIG surprise for me was to see how the Author starts
implementing the game skeleton : a bunch of interfaces .
Nothing of similar in other beginners books ( Killer games programming in java , online tutorials etc...). So i'm wondering if the use of interfaces is an advanced design style and  if there are
around some tutorials or books dealing with this subject.
Thanks a lot for any clarification !
8  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / a really good 2d beginners book on: 2013-09-19 10:32:03
C#/XNA but , like the author states , the concepts can be easily translated in any language.
A  lot of good stuff i didn't find in any other book .

2D graphics programming for games , by John Pile Jr.

Here are the videos , chapter by chapter :
9  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: slick2d + eclipse setting problem on: 2013-05-11 10:57:25
Thanks to you all for the tips ! 
Actually , the problem was WinRar !
However i decided to follow the hint  and bought the Zechner ' s book and install libgdx .

Thx again  Smiley

And men have less scruple in offending one who makes himself loved,
that one who makes himself feared;
because love is held by a tie of obligation, which, because men are bad,
from each  private interest is broken;
but the fear is held by a dread of punishment which never abandons.
"(Niccolo Machiavelli," The Prince ").
10  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: slick2d + eclipse setting problem on: 2013-05-09 15:44:45
 alaslipknot  ,  i CAREFULLY searched in the folder , but there are only these
files :
a META-INF folder with a manifest file
a "org" > " newdawn" > "slick" > ... nested folders with a ton of classes , no jars.
I downloaded the libraries ( not the source code ) here

sure i'm missing something really simply

thx however  Smiley
11  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / slick2d + eclipse setting problem on: 2013-05-09 13:52:48
I feel really dumb asking this , but i got an headache reading tons of tutorials
about setting slick2d with eclipse .My problem :
when i extract  the  zip slick2d , i don't find any jar file extension.
I need to rename some file ?

(Please don't laugh too much , i'm coming from xna and c# )

Thanks a lot for any help
