Wouldn't Javascript also be a good option for allowing user scripty stuff?

I did try it in Revenge of the Titans, though I never documented it nor explained it to anyone Smiley
Source code's kicking about somewhere...

JavaFX has gone so tragically in the wrong direction it makes me cry.

I'm about ready to throw the towel in on MacOS to be honest. I suspect Apple would too if they could.

Hi Julien - thanks for mentioning that about NSIS, I had no idea it ran under Linux. NSIS is great, if a little old-fashioned in its scripting language.

Google occasionally put out the odd decent bit of code that I find a use for... like some of the stuff in their guava library, that's quite handy for things like bidirectional maps and so on.

You forgot the built-in properties support too.. I also like the async methods and built-in events and delegate system.
Actually those features I don't really like that much. Properties support is just crap syntactic sugar and tbh solves nothing important and doesn't even save much typing. Though I'm on the fence about the continuations support though I can't help but feel that continuations are some sort of giant bodge masking a terrible failure in conception but I haven't quite managed to see through the magic yet to figure out what it is about them that bothers me so.

Unity's a bit crap in some ways.

I started to like C# for a bit... and then I got annoyed by it. C# is very much Java 5 + Blackjack and hookers, like someone said "screw you I'm gonna make my own language like Java with <insert cool features>" but didn't quite think it all through to the end.

That said... I really want to pinch some features from C# now. Value types, pass by reference for value types, multidimensional arrays, extension methods, and true generic templates, all make life genuinely much more excellent.

But Unity hasn't helped us at all.

translate permanently changes the translation in the graphics instance. It will accumulate every frame if you're using the same graphics instance every time.

Indeed, don't make life hard for yourself. Just deploy the entire embedded JRE you want, and use jsmooth to create a launcher for it.
On the Mac it's just a zip of a .app folder with a shellscript to launch and a .plist file explaining to the system how the app is configured.
On Linux it's just a tar.gz and a shellscript to launch.

All three methods just involve an entire JRE - the lib and bin folders specifically - and your game stuff at the root. There's really nothing to it. Use Ant to automate it if you want but there's not even really a need to do that.

I've never looked at Maven nor gradle. Ant works for me.

Reckon your best bet is to a) use the data simply as persistence, not as a database - load it into the heap in a useful queryable POJO structure and b) use thjson which is precisely designed for this exact task you had in mind Tongue

I'm quite fond of my THJSON parser Smiley Most of the advantages of XML, most of the advantages of JSON.

There are rumblings that AWT might itself be hived off into a separate thing too. The fruits of JDK9's fiddly module system finally ripening.

Just to be clear I'm fine with it being described as "professional level" as opposed to the stricter definition of "professional" but I think it'd just help avoid a lot of time wasted if you were up front about all the details here.

You will nonetheless receive a much more positive response from more appropriate people if you give more complete details here up front and engage in discourse here too. A cagey reluctance to do so does not inspire confidence...

Jon, you are still being very confrontational. When someone says they're not being sarcastic, please take it at face value and treat it as if they have given you an honest response. No-one has anything to gain from bullshitting.

Again you are tone deaf to the general consensus of opinion from everyone else in the world vs. America:
Quote
Java gaming -> Video game violence is bad -> no, guns are bad -> why? -> silence! -> <we are here>
We are not here, it is only American gun advocates (I hasten to reiterate that the other half of America thinks you have a problem too).
There is no silence. It is stated over and over and over again, all over the internet. Guns are bad because they kill people so well. That is their primary function. Killing people. Most guns made are not made for sharpshooting target practise. They are designed to kill. That is why guns exist. That is why armies do not use swords any more - because guns are 10000x better at killing. Guns are so good at killing that it makes it easy for nutcases to kill people en masse all the time, and only in your country. There is no argument - there are only facts. The only thing worth debating is why you hang on to the argument that somehow guns are great and that people should in general be allowed to have them. What will it take to make you think about it? When your neighbour's kid gets shot dead? When your kid gets shot dead? When your wife gets shot dead? When you get shot dead? I suspect from the tone of your argument you are essentially irrational on the subject and no further useful debate will be possible with you. When confronted with sound discussion you accuse people of sarcasm or caricaturing.

Now, for the good of everyone, please stop posting in this thread. The moderator function appears to be broken atm which is why I haven't already ended it or at least thrown it into the Chitchat Monster.

The threat of moderation is real and getting closer.
Firstly the discussion was veering dangerously towards simple argument.
Secondly there is no place on the entire internet where this argument ends up either resolved or with more people friends with each other at the end of the argument than at the start of the discussion.
Thirdly you will find that questioning moderation decisions in public neither endears you to the moderators nor weakens their resolve.

I think this thread should be ended before it ends badly. What do you think?

The A-Team was the start of it. All those bullets... and the only person who ever got shot was Murdoch.
