1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Need advice regarding java libriaries on: 2013-09-15 11:39:41
Cool, thanks for all your input. Still going ahead with slick2D as some black box stuff might be more suitable for my current level of programming skills. A question remains, if you'd indulge me: if within the development cycle of my project I realize that slick2d isn't doing it for me, how hard would it be to convert the project to LibGDX or straight up lwjgbl?

Thanks,
NGD

PS: So happy that I've found such an active and helpful community here. Huzzah

Thanks for the advice.

I've decided to go with lwjgl and slick2d as they seem to fill my needs the best. As for a simple game, I have made a couple of very basic games before and I am eager to get to something with more meat on its bones, even if I have to struggle to it.

Thanks again.

Hello guys,


I'm thinking about programming a little game in java for the fun of it. I was thinking of making a 2D RPG with some TBS elements in it.

Now, I'm confident in my abilities to create the logical structures behind the elements I need to incorporate but my java skills are, at most, at a beginner level. My question to you lot is what you would recommend to start with? I had a look online and found some interesting tools in lwjgl, slick2d and libgdx. Should I use all of these or only a subset? Should I use something else? Any input is kindly appreciated.


Thanks,
NGD
