Hey all, my first post at Java games forum!
Very well, the reason that i post this one is because i just switched tools for developeing java games, before i used notepad all the time but as i saw this project get bigger and bigger a simple notepad app just didnt do it for me hehe...
So i downloaded Eclipse, mainly to harvest it's profileing tools, but also to get a more relaxed development enviroment, the thing now is that i just cant get the damn profiling stuff to work, I have downloaded the TPTP package and added it to features and plugin, and after trying to enable it in the configuration management, the app started crying about not finding hyades, so I downloaded the hyades package and added it in the appropriate folders, and the I kicked the config man. thingie again, this time the app cryed about that the hyades_test_3.3.0 wasnt installed, so i checked it out, and it turns out that this feature wasnt loaded due to errors, well i have tryed to reinstall the stuff by overwriting the old files, but the problem consists, and im totally new to the Eclipse platform, i've tried to get som info on the web but all the info on eclipse seams to be mostly for open source folks that want to help develop the app, and plugin developers, and i dont understand much about that stuff, hey! i just want to write cool games hehe.
So does anyone know how i can get the profiling tools to work out properly, if my description seams to be way of, can anyone tutor me from step one? (step one = the installation of Eclipse) so i can get the TPTP tools to work, really need to check for optimisation alternatives for my game =)
Very well, I hope someone of you guys have some neat answers, and they will be very much appriciated!
