Important: At the moment we use a nasty hack to make event system work: Set dispatcher field of Container class with reflection. ... However we beleive event system can also be made work with a custom Toolkit and a dummy Peer. Indeed we seek help from AWT/Swing gurus about this subject.
I think this shows that the Sun programmers did not make the Swing library with re-usability in mind, they have designed the swing library to be used on the event dispatch thread only.

I was waiting to see what @KevenWorkman replied first, but there's probably another hacky (but less hacky than above!) way of doing this, without going as far as creating a new Toolkit - run the main game loop on the (well, an*) EDT.  The EventQueue will give you access to events which you can filter and dispatch as you like.

* Stupidest threading decision in AWT / Swing is blocking threads and pushing a new EDT / EventQueue when a modal Dialog opens!  Roll Eyes  The above suggestion would break if a Dialog opened.

Swing takes sole control of the operating system (OS) event queue in its event dispatch thread (EDT), forcing us to do all of our work on the EDT or making us do messy invokeAndWait's all the time.

Which is still doing the work on the EDT - invokeAndWait() - the ideal way to make hard to find bugs - there's a reason they left it out of JavaFX!  Wink

MrPizzaCake: Are you sure you got it? I believe it was just the name Johnny but he is dashing (running) away.
CopyableCougar4 -> Maybe it's both reasons, they're not contradictory.

Maybe this Johnny is some long lost brother or child of Johnny Cash.

I cannot install it Clueless play store says it cannot be installed in my device's country (Germany)
It works now! Your game looks nice and polished!
The tilt motion is a tad bit to slow, so that you need to turn your screen very much, which distracts you from the action, but thats just my impression.

Thanx for the feedback! I made the game available in every country after I read your post.. and someone else told me the same thing about the tilt function so I will take care of it.

It's a native crash Pointing There won't be an Exception.

Anyway, as you are creating an image every frame, you might run out of vRAM, making the texture allocation fail, after which Slick2D might be sending/reading its pixels to/from a null pointer.

So I have done something like this before for a few formats. Essentially I just built everything around the way COLLADA structures  it's data. It's an extremely comprehensive format that covers everything and it's designed by lots of collaborators (the Khronos ARB) so it's quite a good average of all the stuff out there.

Also it'll probably be the most complex format you will support so better that you bend everything else to fit it than vice versa.

No one cares about number of registered accounts,  I bet even on this website, a lot of people have registered that has not posted anything.

Yep. This is true of every single website, ever.

I would very much like to recommend the book "The Unpersuadables: Adventures with the Enemies of Science" by Will Storr, easily the best book about conspiracy theories I've read to date (I've read about a half dozen).

Do you have a favorite conspiracy theory? I'm a fan of reptilians myself.
