Hello. It's been ages since I've been on these forums.
Anyway, I had a bit of fun with J2ME and MIDP 2.0 trying to develop a simple game.
The main reason I liked it was because it introduces you to basic game
techniques but is also relatively simple to use.
What I would like to know is, how do you make sure your game is compatible
across all mobile phones that run J2ME? I've heard that professional
game developers have to compile about 200 versions of any one game.
So I guess my question is, as a bedroom coder, is it possible to make a
fairly compatible game without buying 200 phones to test them on?
Can it be done with software emulators? How do people with tight
or non-existent development budgets make their games compatible?
