Congrats! Reviews online are very very good, especially the user comments are all positive Smiley

Thanks!  By and large, this has been a very successful exhibition.  Time to recoup and think about the next one! Smiley

Thanks gang!  It has been a crazy ride right now (well, for the past 3 years actually!).  But the exhibition is launched and was a huge success!  The book is turning out to sell really well, as well.  Cheers!

Looks great!  The art reminds me a bit of 3D Dot Heroes Smiley

This was a game that was being built around 4-5 years ago...

Greetings programs!

Been quite some time since I have posted here.  Getting ready for the launch of The Art of Video Games exhibition and a full time job has kept me busy, but I still lurk here on a regular basis.

Anyway, while digging through some links, I found a video snippet posted to the web that showcased the jMonkeyEngine game that was being developed by ncSoft, but killed in the wake of Tabula Rasa not doing very well. Shame that.  Would have been another commercial feather in Java's cap.  Check it out here:

Yes, it's true we're a Java gaming community. I might however consider making a non-Java showcase section, as I know a lot of people (including myself) develop in many languages other than Java and just want to show it off.
The point of providing a service to a niche is that you focus on this niche. Once you broaden your target audience, you'll find yourself competing with forums that are dedicated to their niche. Everybody loses. I have already stated this before and will continue to do so, every time you suggest we should open up to non-java game development.

Regarding JL235's posting this project on a java forum:
As said: the more you contribute, the more you get away with.

I agree with Riven and others here.  ED, there are plenty of other forums that focus on any/everything.  We should keep it Java centric across the forum, except in the Miscellaneous Topics board.

Aye, this is more or less because it's impossible to see the future, and it's the fault of neither side.  X years ago when these projects began, no one had any idea that we'd be on this forum in 2011 discussing this issue.
Hah! They knew full well what they were doing, 'twas a straighforward case of NIH. But regardless, sticking with JOGL is definitely the sensible option for this project.

I have NO IDEA what you are talking about.  None at all.  Nope.  Madness you speak of!  Grin

Is it possible to pay with PayPal? I don't want to give my credit card number.

Hmm...I don't believe so.  You can donate via mobile phone however.  Thanks!

The Smithsonian has set up a micro-donation site for "The Art of Video Games" exhibition.  Get your name forever listed in this historic exhibition by making a small donation.  Cheers!

As we are preparing for the exhibition launch, we are writing a book that will serve as the show program as well.  This book should weigh-in at about 220+ pages.  And it looks AAAMAZING!  The designer I am working with is a long time friend of mine names Pat.  You JGO oldtimers might remember him from the earliest site designs as the "Ask Pat" guy.

AAnnnnyway...He was working on the Minecraft page of the book and constructed the following in world.  Enjoy!

[size=18pt]Finally done. Back to![/size]
Thanks for the fix! Glad to have 30% of our visitors back!

Woot! Confirmed, it works. Great job Chris Smiley If you go to it loads the front page, then when you click a link it takes you there on
Can't do much about that. Will add a http-redirect later today.

Hmmm...seems to be broken again.  I just checked the zone file and everything is fine on my end (for once!)....

[size=18pt]Finally done. Back to!

14  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGO domain-name changed ?! on: 2011-08-30 03:12:39
Crap.  Not sure.  Looking into it now...



Zone file needed to be recreated and I am now pointing at the IP address.  Should take about an hour to propagate.  Was an issue on the registrar side, but seems to be fixed now.  Fingers crossed!

15  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGO domain-name changed ?! on: 2011-08-28 16:27:04
I get a GoDaddy "Is this your domain?" page.

Its where I have the domain parked.  It can take up to 48 hours for non .com/.net TLDs to propagate.

16  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGO domain-name changed ?! on: 2011-08-27 22:06:48
Do you mean you're going to run a webserver which will do a http level redirect? If so, why not point the dns to my webserver's ip address right away? That way it will also simply serve the same content for both domains, without the additional redirect. But maybe I'm misinterpreting 'masked forwarding' ... Smiley

I will, but the nameserver transfer takes time.  After it is logged in my ISP's database and it has propagated, I will be able to point to your ip address. The forwarding is just a temporary fix until this happens Smiley

17  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGO domain-name changed ?! on: 2011-08-27 21:45:56
It should, it will be doing masked forwarding from the domain to  This way, both new and old links stay in tact until you move them all over, if that is what we decide, to (one word, no hyphen).

18  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGO domain-name changed ?! on: 2011-08-27 21:23:15
Nameservers are changed.  Will take between 2 hours and 48 hours to complete....THEN, I have the ability to change the DNS.

EDIT:  Forwarding has been initiated.  Should take place within the hour.
19  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGO domain-name changed ?! on: 2011-08-27 05:20:06
GOOD NEWS!  The original has been transferred over to me as of this evening.  I am waiting for the lock to be released tomorrow and for the DNS cache to propagate.  I can then point to the servers and we have the old site completely back in tact.  W00T!

After the changeover, which should be any day now (if Oracle does not send in the agreement within 5 days it reverts to me automatically anyway), we should then change back to, keep all old links in tact and then work on SEO best practices to help build the site out.  I can even tap my web team from my day job for assistance.


I still think it's mind boggling that Oracle's lawyers released the domainname to JGO! Smiley

I'm very grateful Chris and Charlie worked out the legal issues (if any).

No worries, and yes, there were some.  Biggest one is our re-branding as JGO so we don't run afoul of their naming requirements.
23  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: JGO domain-name changed ?! on: 2011-08-18 06:19:34
And, I should have had the re-direct done sooner.  My bad, lots going on as always.  The domain transfer request is in and Oracle has agreed to release the domain name to me.  As soon as Oracle sends their reply e-mail, I can repoint the DNS.

Cool, Chris is here Smiley

VP - Corporate Marketing for Verisign.... sounds like you have to wear a suit and a tie. No more Hawaiian t-shirt and jeans at work? Smiley

Hell no!  Still dye my hair, rocking the "Flynn Lives" shirt, and get to still do what I love most: explaining to people why technology matters and how it works for them.  And a suit, now and again. But I rock it Wink


25  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Been away for a bit... on: 2011-06-12 20:22:42
.. and working on the book..
oh nice, didn't know you were serious about THE book, look forward to finally learning about all those secret Sun projects Smiley

Ah...not THE book, but the Art of Video Games book for the Smithsonian Smiley  That OTHER book will materialize at some point....
26  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Been away for a bit... on: 2011-06-12 18:59:43
Hey!  Smithsonian taking some time, but I am also the VP - Corporate Marketing for Verisign.  So, on top of my day job in building global brands, I am also working on the Smithsonian gig and working on the book.  Lots to do Smiley

Hello JGO!  Have not been active here for QUITE some time now, but lurk often and will start to post more.  Just a quick pop in to say hey, love how the community continues to thrive, and love seeing the successes of our members out in market.


28  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: "Art Of Video Games" exhibit / voting on: 2011-02-19 17:53:26
Btw, forcing be to choose between Phantasy Star IV, Flashback and SF2? Evil. Huh

As evil as having to choose between Earthbound, Zelda :LttP, and Chrono Trigger?  Hmmmm....

The voting has many components to it that I will draw out in the exhibition that deal with the issues of curating culture, the difficult decisions when forced into linear definitions, and how the voting system mimics mechanics found in story driven games where it seems there is choice that can effect the outcome.

Thanks to all who voted!

Okay that was kinda easy.

Though, I was surprised that I didn't find Super Smash Bros Melee for gamecube Sad

No fighting genre in this exhibition.  Sorry Sad

I've voted Smiley

Strangely, the older games were easier to vote for.  On the more recent stuff I was pleased to see Okami (Wii) and Flower (PS3).
Missing perhaps, were the vector graphics and also the laser disc games.

No handhelds, arcade systems, vector based (my Vectrex actually sits in the office of my day job!), etc.  We were limited to 20 systems that could best represent, in the broadest way possible, the markers for "video games", in a global sense, for the past 30 plus years.

"registering" is just entering an e-mail address, nothing else to do there.  It will immediately let you in.  Think about it for a sec....
