ags1, just out of curiousity, have you seen or played the game 'Banished' ?

IntelliJ masterrace reporting in...

Sometimes building a game *is* the game.
4  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Programming Laptops on: 2015-10-21 06:52:15

I just can't code on a laptop (for any length of time).

Need my multiple screens, my mechanical keyboard & super sensitive gaming mouse to get into the 'zone'...

Which horrible behaviour from backers have you seen? Please can you explain to me what you meant?

Let me give you an example:

Dev: "Hello everybody, my vision for this project is to be a fun car game."

BackerA: "I backed you at god tier. I demand you add boats."

Dev: "Update: The project will now be a fun car-game with boats too."

BackerB: "This game needs dinosaurs. Who's with me?" Creates poll on project's forum. Thread hits 1000 pages.

Dev: "Update: The game will now be a fun car game with boats and dinosaurs.."

BackerC: "All the big AAA games have zombies. We have to have zombies too or your game cannot compete!" Another huge thread on project forum that spans many weeks.

Dev: "Update:The game will now be a fun car-game with boats and dinosaurs and zombies."

At no point did any of the "loudest" backers respect the original vision of the dev for this project.

(You know... the thing we all initially backed)

I try to make games for myself, but always get side-tracked on some very specific game mechanic side project (the current one is yet another combat mechanic.. hehe).

I would never create a game for other people because I don't like people. I've seen some horrible behaviour from backers of certain kickstarters lately. The vision of game devs are just not respected, and backers treat the devs as voodoo dolls. No way would I willing walk into that kinda of furball.

Ha ha, I'm considerably older Smiley

I'm probably one of the oldest people on the forum

I doubt that very much young ags1...
8  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Social Stigma of Game Dev and Peer Pressure on: 2015-10-06 04:18:13
The fact that you mention 'clubbing' in your list of activities suggests to me that your quite young. The pressure that you feel is totally normal. It's almost a rite-of-passage, it will perplex you for a good 10 years or more. Then it will settle and you will find peace with your interests/hobbies and your circle of friends (which will no doubt look very different to the circle you mix with now).

tl;dr Don't worry about it. Keep doing what your doing. It will all come out in the wash... Wink

I'd vote that it's too non-random...

I kinda like the idea that a Level 0 has a chance of taking down a Level 5.
10  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Vangard on: 2015-08-31 09:05:33
Woah. This little project interests me greatly. I totally understand if your not intending to release the source (ie: you're making it into a game?), but can you provide some insight as to how you:

a) generate/track/control the entities? (and how they interact with each other?)

b) your behaviour implementation? Are they given out to each entity at random? Or do entities learn/grow them over time?
11  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / Re: Octalysis gamification framework on: 2015-08-26 09:28:27
Wow! That's Junglist! He was the main reason I watched Good Game on the ABC.

Will watch the rest (if any) when I get home.
12  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Z25d - a javafx 2.5d rpg game on: 2015-07-06 09:36:54
Oh my....

The artwork looks fantastic!
13  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / Re: RPG game skeleton design on: 2015-07-06 09:04:18
My first suggestion would be:
- Uninstall Eclipse.
- Install IntelliJ Community Edition.

You can thank me later.  Grin
14  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Cosmic Menace on: 2015-07-06 09:00:12
Looks great!
15  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What are your habits while you're programming? on: 2015-06-19 08:51:09
IntelliJ + Night-time + Coffee + Silence (apart from the click/clack from a mechanical keyboard)
16  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What's your favorite OS and why? on: 2015-06-19 08:47:57
I hate them all. I use Windows 7 Ultimate N 64 bit otherwise.

Cas Smiley

I'm with this guy, except that I hate iOS slightly more than the others.
17  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What are your current personal projects? on: 2015-06-19 07:37:43
The code is so clean its actually sterile, and im loving it.

Ok, now I'm intrigued. Please do tell us more about the libs you're using.
18  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What to really learn for commercial Java ? on: 2015-06-19 07:33:37
A bit late answer, but on server side Java, XML, XSD, XSLT and all those become more and more important.

A lot of large corps (in my neck of the woods) are trying to get away from those and have started to move towards RESTful/JSON implementations.
19  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What IDE colour theme do you use? on: 2015-06-19 07:21:58
...a customised variant of "Darcula".

Most of you will know the IDE of which I speak. Wink

21  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Shoot 'Em Up Prototype on: 2015-04-01 07:24:54
I wouldn't mind sharing my source once the game is in a more polished state. Currently the code gets the job done with minimal redundancy, but it's far from beautiful code.

Sorry Ryukujinishi, I didn't mean you or your project personally. Don't share if you don't want to. I meant that there has been quite a few people who have attempted a shoot'em up as a first project and then rage-quit in frustration over some small detail. Was simply suggesting that we do something as a group...

tl:dr I'm an idiot for posting in your thread.
22  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Shoot 'Em Up Prototype on: 2015-03-30 06:26:44
We should do this type of thing as a communal/shared code JGO project. (in the shared code sub-forum pehaps?)

That way all existing & future forum members can hack away at the code to their heart's content.
23  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: College Saga // BETA on: 2015-02-20 09:36:54
I thought 'Saga' was a patented word by the infamous software house starting with 'Z'.
24  Java Game APIs & Engines / Java 2D / Re: 2D game engine. on: 2015-02-20 06:28:58
I thought processing was about providing a graphical/reporting front-end for data-mining activities?
25  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Minecraft Java/LAN problem? on: 2015-01-11 12:56:52
I can ping the PC the opened it game to LAN.
I can also start multiplayer, add a server like '' and play on that successfully.

I just can't seem to join my kids LAN game when they play together. Sad

I'm not quite sure what this new HomeGroup versus WorkGroup settings are in win 8.1. I'm not even sure if it's that important as my modem/router is the one dishing out the addresses to devices...
26  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Army Men - a 3do fangame! on: 2014-12-30 06:39:20

Now, that's a name I've not heard in a long time.
27  Game Development / Networking & Multiplayer / Re: Open World Multiplayer Game on: 2014-12-30 06:33:42
I'm not understanding your sense of scale for this project.

Are you hoping to see every other zone regardless of which zone your in, or do you intend to simply show one entire zone (the one your currently in) and then transition into another zone when you step through some type of portal mechanic?
28  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Horizon (2D Free roam game) WIP on: 2014-12-30 06:26:02
I know what your probably thinking, god another 2D tile based game, but let me explain.

Blasphemer! Tile-based games are the best type of game.
29  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: How alive is the forum? on: 2014-12-29 10:11:09
Been here a few years now. I quite like the pace of JGO. Not too spammy. It's a comfortable visit-once-a-day site imho.
30  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Minecraft Java/LAN problem? on: 2014-12-15 05:24:13
It's a generic error that we get in minecraft (similar to cannot connect to server). I think it maybe a ConnectionException of sorts, but you watch it as it tries and then time-outs. I'm not sure if there is a log file that I can look at it. There is one in the launcher app but I don't know how to get back to the launcher once you've started the game?

I'll come back with the exact message after work today.
