if you need help with LWJGL best place is the irc channel over at freenode room #LWJGL

would recommend you have a look at the space invaders demo that comes with LWJGL its most useful if your new.

Some very nice tutorials over at

You can also use the standard nehe tutorials with LWJGL which most ppl starting with opengl use, from for versions of really nice LWJGL code grab the source of the tutorials from its much better than the ones on the actual nehe pages.

personally would recommend you also check out the Slick project its very cool & easy to use, has great examples, docs and a very helpful community and is layered on top of LWJGL. Best of all is that it has all the tools most newbies get stuck with such as creating a window, playings sounds, ogg player, font loading, loading image formats, etc etc.

Where to start; normally I would hand pick links from this page, but since it's late I'm going to direct you to look at the Most Useful Links/Bookmarks page. Please do not reply in that thread, there is a discussion thread
