1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Question about Java and connecting to a database on: 2008-01-05 05:17:55
I actually don't know what JDK version the machine I took it from was running. I run JDK 1.5 . I tried changing the project's source/binary format to an older JDK from netbeans(the IDE I use) but nothing happened.It was already set in 1.5 anyway. Unless it is  not what you meant. I have not been programming in a while so I am really rusty in quite a lot of things right now so I could have misunderstood you.

Also thanks a lot for the reply  Smiley , hoping to get some more replies and get this problem behind me  Undecided

Assuming it's all source code that you have on your computer (ie. you're not working with external .class files outside of the Java base classes), doing a "Build->Clean and Build Main Project" tends to do the trick. This happens often to me as well when I'm switching development between computers with different JDK versions. If that doesn't do it, you can change the Java Platform version you want to compile against by right-clicking on your project in the sidebar, selecting Properties, then Libraries, and selecting the platform version. To add a new one, go to "Tools->Java Platform Manager".

Is the entire map then just some kinda large two dimensional array? Any idea how much ram that eats?

Essentially, yes. And the RAM usage has been perfectly acceptable on all of the tests/computers that I've run the game on. Smiley

Ah, too bad it's not java, but that's still really really cool. The general concept is actually something I've been wishing to implement in a game at some point, but I've been so far behind in being able to realize any of that (well not the membrane thing, but your general control scheme and throw you a bunch of awesome weapons idea Smiley ). I think the mouse + wasd control scheme works excellent for top down games. Very well implemented, and nice that you could throw in some decent music as well. Laser is awesome fun to use, love the particle/glowy effects, and the freeze bomb is just really cool (no pun intended).

Thanks a lot for the kind words. I'm really glad you enjoyed yourself. Smiley

Can I ask how exactly you managed the collision detection with the destructible environment? One of the things holding me back is always implementing a nice efficient collision algorithm. Care to share anything?

Certainly! The ships uses a bounding circle (radius 18px or somesuch), whereas every frame the pixels that compose this imaginary circle are checked for non-transparent pixels against the map. These are summed up, and if it passes a certain threshold a collision is registered. The cells use a similar system, instead letting the bounding circle be malleable/deformable. Although not implemented, this system can also let you do stuff like calculate better bounce-vectors (by averaging the collision points on the bounding circle), or determining how hard/roughly to bounce the ship/cell off a wall based on the # of collision points. Hopefully that's clear -- if not let me know. I'm more than happy to explain how I did any of the portions of MM.

Enter Membrane Massacre.

The year is 2160. A deadly bacteria is sweeping the world -- the likes of which medical science has never encountered before. The world's best doctors have failed to find a cure. And so what is the fate of mankind?

Enter Dr. Smallship, the recent inventor of a high-powered shrinking device. With two-and-two quickly put together, it becomes obvious that the only solution is to use the shrinking device to shrink powerful combat fighter ships to a microscopic size, and use them to battle the sinister bacteria!

Come on. How tough could a few of these cytoplasm-suckers be?

Fight your way through four grueling randomly generated levels, through hordes of bacteria that jiggle with realistic physics. Take command of one of five unique microscopic space fighters, and unlock new and powerful weapons with each one. It won't be easy, but everyone agrees that you're the best low-salary pilot for the job!

Membrane Massacre is a coffee-break style game, with the intent of being ideal for short action-filled sessions. The game was originally the product of a half-month contest, but ended up seeing a total of five months of development, into the polished state it is in now. So take a shot at the devious bacteria lurking within, and see if you can defeat the evil bacterium boss, El Mucho Membrane! Controls and other details included in the README file.

Good luck, pilot!

Feedback is, of course, greatly appreciated. Smiley

Sorry, some confusion on my behalf: are rotated/scaled images accelerated by the OpenGL pipeline?
6  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Java 5.0 commonness? on: 2005-03-12 00:40:31
Just how common has Java 5.0 become on the computers of average users? I've been trying to decide if I will target 5.0 or stick with 1.4.2 to minimize the need of updating for the majority of users.

I haven't exactly been keeping up with how 5.0 has been accepted by the mass public, but I'm sure that you folks will have some helpful insight for me. :)

Many thanks!
