1  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.

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?

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.

Oh my....

The artwork looks fantastic!
6  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

Looks great!
8  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)
9  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.

I'm with this guy, except that I hate iOS slightly more than the others.
10  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.
11  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.
12  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

14  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.
15  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.
16  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'.

I thought processing was about providing a graphical/reporting front-end for data-mining activities?
18  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...
19  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.
20  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?
21  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.
22  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.
23  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.
24  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Minecraft Java/LAN problem? on: 2014-12-15 04:06:00
I have 3 computers on a LAN at home. All 3 have minecraft installed as the family love to play together. Recently I upgraded one PC from an AMD dual-core to an Intel i7, and now I'm in network hell, in that 2 computers can join the same game but a 3rd PC won't.

All three are running JDK7u71, all 3 are getting the IP's from a modem router running DHCP. No mac address filters etc

All three can login into minecraft & play single-player Ok.

All three have windows firewall entries for both the JDK and for minecraft (JDK & minecraft installs did these on their own it seems).

All three are running the same version of Minecraft/Forge and misc mods.

2 PC's are running Windows 7 Ultimate.
1 PC is running Windows 8.1. <--- This is the one that cannot connect to a LAN game with the others.

Any ideas as to what else I should try?
25  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: The C family, should I dig deeper? on: 2014-11-19 04:53:32
OP, definately learn C. Chasing rouge pointers teaches you to keep your house in order (which is something you tend to keep as you move onto other languages)

26  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Ways of keeping track of classes... on: 2014-11-11 05:10:48
If your hunting around for classes then it sounds like your packages need some thought/refactoring.
27  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: Microsoft to buy Mojang for $2 billion? on: 2014-09-16 05:30:38
^ hahaha, totally agree. It would be so cool if he 'came back home' to JGO and continued to create posts on kooky side projects again.

ps: Regardless, I'm very happy for him...couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke! Onya n0tch!

pps: I hope he aint leaving java though. That would be sad imho.

Nice, but it's .NET code though...
