Introducing the world's cutest zombie, Timmy

« Posted 2007-02-22 23:45:42 »

So im on the windows side of my computer until 6 comes out for mac. Since windows fails to know the difference between capitals and lower case, and the command line window's width is unajustable, and navigating windows file structure is a chore. Ive decided to try an IDE to make life easier in my hopefully brief stay in windows.

I chose JBuilder 2005 since I figured it out quick, eclips I couldn't even make a projet after a half an hour of tinkering and being a moron.

So Im at the point where Im starting a new game, I have my sprite sheets loaded up, sonds loaded, basic game arcitecture is finished. And Im now at loading loading level files (bomberman) so its going to be just little text files. I have a resources folder in JBuilder's src folder, with subdirectories for images/sounds. Which Jbuilder recognizes and when I "rebuild" the project it copies them to the classes folder.
But if I make a new directory called maps with just text files, it places the text files at the bottom of my list of  files-in-project and claims my maps folder is empty. When I rebuild the project it does not copy the "empty according to it" maps folder to the classes folder, or the map files that are in it. So I have to manually move thigns around every time I remake the project. The whole point of an IDE was to avoid windows file manipulation, so this isnt helping... IS there anyway to get it to acknowldege that the text files are acutally in the maps folder, and that I would like them to be copied to the classes folder on build?

the command line window's width is unajustable

The command line window is adjustable.  Go to the system menu on the command line window, then choose Properties->Layout  and set the width under Window Size.

Also I have used both JBuilder and Eclipse.  When I first went to Eclipse I felt a little lost because they did things differently.  Now that I am used to it, I would never go back to JBuilder.

That isn't the problem. They appear in the vies. They don't build into the build folder. And even when they do when I run it, JBuider pretends they dont exist. And yes I have.

By the way I moved my prject to a folder and texpad and managed to completly destroy any functionality it had.
