1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Complete Newbie on: 2013-09-18 12:12:40
Thank you all for your invaluable input. It is Greatly appreciated!

I feel comfortable in setting my initial tools up and also have a good idea for basic progression now too Smiley

I most certainly will be buying some resources on the side to aid my learning, so i will add this book to my list.

I didn't get chance to start coding last night, flipping decorating still going on (3 months down) lol Hoping i might get some time this evening!

If not i have 2 weeks paternity coming up so should have some free time then, and lots more in the evenings as the decorating saga comes to an end!

The community here is amazing and i can't wait to be able to help others out here too!

Thanks again all!

Perhaps you could implement a system where the win state is far greater the longer you played the game.This would certainly insight confusion in the player. But the further you get in the game, the closer and more reqarding the winstate gets and the easier it is to win. If the aim of the game was to avoid winning to win bigger  persecutioncomplex perhaps this would insight what you are talkign about?

Thanks Regenuluz and Danny02, Really appreciate the advice Smiley

Well i have already installed netbeans and Java 7 JDK so i guess i was already set without knowing it! Just wanted to make sure i wasn't using old/unsupported/messy software.

I will check out eclipse too as i see alot of people using it in tutorials, see which i prefer!

I will begin my epic journey with Java this evening! Want to get ahead ready for the degree i will hopefully be taking next year  persecutioncomplex

I can see i'm going to love being part of this community Smiley

Thanks again!!

(more replies are still welcome by the way any other views are always welcome!)

4  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Complete Newbie on: 2013-09-17 11:01:00
Hi Everyone,

Although my title states it i am only a complete newbie to Java. I have done a bit of C++ in the past and so have some basic knowledge of logic.

I have been reading many guides online on how to get started which are fine. But everyone seems to use different IDE's, Java versions and libraries.

My question to you experienced and very helpful developers out there (i have been reading forum posts and i must say the community here is awesome) is as follows:

I have an idea, I want to bring it to life. It is a 2D Zelda type game (Gameboy original style). I know my capabilities are not good enough to cover this all by myself but this is the goal i wish to work towards even if it takes me a few years (or longer).

Which Compiler/IDE would you recommend using and which version of Java for starters?

I know Java has a hell of alot of libraries built in but are there any essentials that people use that i should download to prevent hold ups in the future?

Basically i want to get completely set up from the start so i can just enjoy programming and problem solving and grow my knowledge and hopefully get to know some of the community in the meantime.

I'd love to work on a game as a team eventually but first i need to get a good grounding with Java.

Thanks in advance for reading this!

I look forward to hearing your response

Hi everyone, i can't beleive it took me so long to answer those registration questions well worth it though! Great way to keep those "unsavoury" types out.

Thanks for the security and the sense of achievement and mild humiliation haha!
