Gave it a try aswell. Really cool and polished game I must say.
Didn't beat it yet though but I will Smiley

Nothing to complain on except for a few more sounds as Mads mentioned perhaps.
Else it ran very well and surprises me how you got java2d that stutter free Wink

You have to rethink this a bit, it's really not that hard Wink
Like Sproingie said objects are values like anything else. And in java everything is an object
So passing values around isn't difficult. There isn't really any difference between passing primitive data types and objects.

So if we want to pass a name of a person to a other person.

public String name;

public Person(Person otherPerson) { =;

Want to return a reference to a object?

public Person aPerson;

public Person getPerson() {
    return aPerson;

But yeah this is basic so you should perhaps consider takeing some time learning. It won't take you much time before you get it under your belt
Hope I could help you a little Smiley

Take a look at this one.

This is looking really cool, wasted many hours on the settler series Wink
I'm a bit amazed at how fast you progressed with openGL and this game.
Didn't remember it as that easy when I tried!

Art is starting to come together aswell, made all of it yourself?

Good luck with your project Smiley

Well depends on how experienced you are, something good to start out with as a first project would be a "Guess the number" kind of game. Thats atleast how I did it.
After that you could try some kind of simple card game, actually most cardgames comes to life quite well in the console Smiley

When you feel more comfortable you could try and learn some OOP-techniques aswell and involve that into your game, something I belive is good to have a understanding of from the start.

Hello subless!

I belive there is an excellent tutorial for this over at if you havent checked that out yet!

A bit rough but all you should need to do is to declare an array wich holds the values you want, would be BLOCKED (0) and CLEAR(1) in this case.
Then you simply compare the players position to find out whether the tile you try to move too is clear or not.

something like this:
 public boolean moveable(int playerX, int playerY) {
        //return true if this happen- coords from player move
        return blockedData[ playerX ][ playerY ] == CLEAR;

Sorry for a terrible explanation, but take a look here  should cover something like this in greater details:)

21  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / A little about GUI on: 2012-05-05 22:21:47
Hello there!

Just a few questions from a noob again Smiley

How do you guys go about when you design your game UI?
Is there any special library you use for this?
Simply drawing out shapes/images?
Any usefull tip?

So tell me your story unless it's a secret.
Thanks Smiley

24  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: About text output on: 2012-04-10 17:48:32
Thanks guys, finally got it working.
If I should'nt mix swing into my game I've done a quite big misstake now as most of my game is based on it,
but will look into an own rendering class. Will be very painfull and very time consumeing for a noob like me i'm sure!

And yes my google-fu will always be a bit off  Wink
25  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / About text output on: 2012-04-08 14:00:37
Hello JGO!

Registred at your site today, Have to say that I love your registration process, best one i've seen so far Wink

So I've just started to work on my first game project a few weeks ago.It's nothing fancy just for me to learn how game makeing works and have a bit of fun.
Choosed to try and clone a old Star Trek game I played long ago(Forgotten it's name of course Sad).
I remember it as a semi-text based game where you travel your ship to various planets on a map,constantly keeping an eye on fuel levels and supplies, and of course for any nasty klingon that might show up.
Everything has been going really well so far, sorted out some basic collision detection,ship movement and running it on a thread. But I'm not so happy about the GUI yet.
But it's a big thing I haven't gotten working yet and didnt find anything usefull on google either so I though I could ask you guys here for some expert help Smiley

So what I want to do is updating a JTextArea with all the text from my game, for example when my ship collide with planet 101 I want it to output my welcome message for that specific planet and so on.
I tried to do it simple with the "setText" method, but i only got that to work from inside the same class where my JTextArea was, and it didnt update the text at all just overwrite it with the next line.
So yeah, any help on how to update my game text would be very appreciated!
