My name's Wylliam and I'm a begginer on Java Game Programming ( like on english, because it's not my native language, but I'll try to write right, be patient with me please  Undecided )

I've already done some games in C++, but never in Java, so I have some questions..

First: From where can I start ? Java2D?...I don't know exactly

Do you have any tutorial that I can read to start?..

I like games, and I wanna learn very much yet

EDIT: OK, Sorry, I just read that back and I was harsh! Had a hard day - Sorry Defcon  Cry

shame on you Wink


Relax, we are friendly here. Simons advice is not as hash as it sounds, since he is kind of right: find yourself some tutorials (like and ask on problems. There is also an online book available named "Killer Game Programming in Java" (

And yes, the majority of your first projects will be in Java2D. You might want to make stuff in the console first, though.

Having read both the book mentioned before and it's sequel, I find that the sequel helps a bit more, since it covers JOGL and the first does not. The second book in the series can be found here.

I am a noob attempting to make a video game.
