Netbeans has a pretty decent editor.
This, I would highly recommend the nbeans editor
2  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [LibGDX] Box2D and Box2DLight benefits for different games? on: 2014-07-10 22:32:39
Even in a game like monaco you can still make very good use of box2d/box2dlights and it will certainly be faster than writing your own lighting code. I'm not sure what you mean by more efficient - top down games in box2d equate to basically just setting gravity to 0.
3  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: LibGDX - Box2D images on: 2014-07-10 19:08:12
You can use dermetfan's box2dsprite or just draw them in the same place

I read "Space Steroids" persecutioncomplex
You might want to shorten your original post and then just link the dev diary/details to somewhere else, though.
5  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Drawing Graphics on: 2014-07-05 19:55:25
How do you plan on creating a library for beginners and children if you yourself are a beginner? And, your games all use the paint() method to render not just shapes, but images, so...persecutioncomplex
6  Discussions / Suggestions / Re: Pre-WIP section on: 2014-07-01 19:22:36
Not much point in having two wip boards, it'll be hard to categorize which should go where (too subjective) and will just end up being a lot of post moving with little real result. If anything, a "pre-wip" board will only encourage people to post when they don't even have a demo or proof of contest (more clutter).
7  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: How to make an Image rotate? on: 2014-06-26 19:24:04
Use an AffineTransformOp and pass it into the call to drawImage:
That was my question, 3 years ago Grin
8  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / Re: which player sprite looks better? on: 2014-06-24 19:52:04
There's only one candidate though Grin

Anyways to not go too off topic, both of the original sprites seem to be draw from a weird viewpoint. Why is the face facing the camera in a platformer? Looks more like something you'd see out of an RPG.
Please excuse my fast-scrolling habits

I've seen this error before, I'm guessing you're disposing something that you are still using later?

How much is a "cut" of the profit? Does it vary based on whether you use your artists/musicians for example?
13  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: This is one of the worst feelings i ever had on: 2014-06-16 06:42:10
Resolving your own problems, by yourself, is the way to improve yourself imo Pointing
Of course there's a limit to that, but you know your own morals best. There's messed up stuff all over the world, what you can do is not let it affect you being the best you can Smiley
14  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: Fans on: 2014-06-14 09:04:43
Don't have much to say about fans, but nice game Smiley Reminds me of a game on iPhone - can't remember what it's called, but it had similar mechanics but with raindrops.

I...don't see how that relates to my comment?

SwordsMiner's thread

Don't know how you missed articles and tutorials, but I've moved the post here. Can't change the author though.

About the actual tutorial, not a good idea to start people on making static methods Pointing
17  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: Flubber Space on: 2014-06-11 08:08:10
I remember a thread here...I'm not an expert on it however, probably better to look up an online tutorial. For your first game, you don't even need a patcher, though. I was just saying that if you're going to put "constantly updated" as a feature you need some way to show those new updates Tongue
18  Games Center / Archived Projects / Re: Flubber Space on: 2014-06-11 07:56:30
Embed youtube, just use the youtube tag with the part after v= in the url inside the tag.

Honestly, you shouldn't be selling this game. I don't want to sound like I'm flaming your game, but your trailer has an incredibly quiet voiceover, a screenshot-o-matic watermark, and what I believe is a windows live movie maker transition (correct me if I'm wrong, I've used that maybe once). Additionally, your trailer has more "development" footage than actual gameplay, which is not the first impression you want to make in a trailer like that. To add to that, you claim you're going to constantly work on the game, which may be true, but without a patcher, how are people going to get updated versions of the game?

Overall, it's for your own good to complete your game before even thinking about monetizing it. There are so many flash games with more polish that are free, so think about that as well. It won't happen here, but you can hurt your reputation if you release something before you're ready.
19  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [Libgdx] model isometric camera on: 2014-06-10 20:06:37
Just replace the PerspectiveCamera with a rotated OrthographicCamera...
20  Discussions / Suggestions / Re: Highlights system is opaque on: 2014-06-10 19:51:18
People who you've highlighted - given enough medals to - have their posts shown in green. Also toggleable per profile.
Usefulness: when a thread is all green I know it's quality Grin

Seeing how this has now fully devolved, chitchat monster it is Smiley
22  Game Development / Game Mechanics / Re: [LibGDX] Who abstracts from Screen interface? on: 2014-06-09 18:30:01
I think everyone feels that at one point or another, but I'd rather be making a game than an engine Pointing
23  Game Development / Game Mechanics / Re: [LibGDX] Who abstracts from Screen interface? on: 2014-06-09 18:11:17
Yeah that was my point. If your screen class is too big/messy then sure, but otherwise there's no need.
24  Game Development / Game Mechanics / Re: [LibGDX] Who abstracts from Screen interface? on: 2014-06-09 18:03:13
You shouldn't be actively trying to 'abstract' everything unless there's added functionality. I keep my camera/spritebatch/scene2d skin in my Screen class.

26  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [LibGDX] BitmapFont not working on: 2014-06-04 06:04:52
Remember, needs to be in assets/font/, and you need to refresh the android project.

28  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [LibGDX] Getting raw keyboard input on: 2014-06-04 00:17:58
Gdx.input.isKeyPressed(Keys.<keyname>) for quick polling. Why would you ever need a separate listener for each key?
29  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [libGdx] friendly group example on: 2014-06-03 07:36:59
Wait what, he's talking about libgdx Group. It's a specific class. And libgdx has its own Vector2 class too...]

Pick a guy that makes fun of you more than the others. Wait for him to say something. Punch him and aim for the nose, hit him a bunch of times if you want. Your principal will side with you when you use the word 'bullying' to describe the other kids behavior. Use that word a bunch. If you dont want the girl dragged into the mess, or your parents to know the gritty details of the whole affair, dont give specifics on how he would make fun of you. He will never say anything you dont like to you again. You will be given a light punishment, a couple days of in school suspension.
You can't be serious. I have no words for how dumb of a "suggestion" this is. You hit someone who makes fun of you, he and his friends will hit back, aka you will be harassed even more than before. The principal will absolutely not excuse it - the only situation where it's acceptable is if you're defending yourself from serious physical abuse, and even then you'll still probably get a suspension. Suspensions and school fights do stay on your school record, which will affect the choices colleges make. By trying to "fight" back, you're only showing how he's getting to you, and as a result also killing your own chances for the future.
