I have just updated my applet game "Space Paranoids 2D4K" with what should be its final version, the v1.00. However how should I proceed to send the new jar file to the Java4K site ? In another post, William Starkovich and his game Virtual On 4k met the same problem as you can read below, and I'm sorry but I'm not sure to have understood how any updated jar size could be checked by the organizators of the contest...http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/virtual-on-4k-programmed-by-william-starkovich/19977/view.html"Quote
So how would I update the jar than? Where do I put it to show the judges?
Update the jar used by your webstart. The uploader on the java4k site was meant to be used to submit an unsigned jar in the event that you have a jar which turned out to be over 4k after you signed it.
I presume the judges will download the jar they run and check its size.
It's simply a case of updating the jnlp file. In the case of my game, Gravitational Fourks, the link on java4k.com is to grav4k-latest.jnlp, which is a symlink which I changed many times in the course of developing the game as I took on feedback and added stuff. In fact, if you go to the webpage mentioned in the game listing you can play about 16 old versions, most of which at one point were what you would have launched from java4k.com. At no point did I need to update the entry on java4k.com, except to ask Appel to add a screenshot once the graphical style had settled down and to add a note about Java versions.
