Hello!

I have started to build an Java Games site at my home town Helsinki.
I have been thinking of building about 30-50 Java Games on years to come, i have reserved 10+ years to this hobby.

I will do most of the basic boardgames Chess, Reversi, Battleships, ++many more.

I now have my chess game pieces ready, i put them here -> http://temp4321.dy.fi/images/Shakki_009_Lauta.jpg
I feel that i have created fairly good chess pieces.

Is there any change that games with vector based 2D graphics may success on over 2010++.

Is there any famous basic boardgame sites on your country/town/region, i would like to see, what other folks have build over the globe.

so, If you know nice Java games sites on your region, please share me with a link !!

Here is my site, it is finnish, but plenty screenshots -> http://temp4321.dy.fi

Thanks,,

Yeah!  I love your pieces, choice of colours.  One of the hardest things I found with my chess game was getting the right colour combination... (And still not perfect).

Ok, far from famous, but my website www.bullsquared.com has multiplayer chess, reversi etc... (using Jogre engine).  Unfortunately has flopped so far,  noone playing and didnt really generate any interest,  but intend to start advertising in 2010 so hopefully will pick up and get some users.

There's much more to a site than writing the games, not least is getting someone to play.  If all that other stuff is your interest, then by all means continue.  On the other hand, if the games themselves are your interest then you ought to write games for some existing site/platform.  There was a long discussion on this topic recently on BoardGameGeek.  http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/433342

GameServer!

Bullsquared is drawn on a different, maybe a bit like early '90s PC style, your chess graphics are a bit too thin, for my taste.

Still you have a very nice site !! Bug Trap was very good, i really liked it, have you build it from nothing, or have you seen some other work ??

Anyway,
On what line you maintain your server, im planning to server 750 people at ADSL 12m/3m.
Do you use UDP or TCP for client <-> server transfers ?? Im planning to use 100 byte UDP transfers / game move !!
How many people have played on your site and when you started your server ??
Has there been any situtations on server operations, something i should know when building/starting my own server ??

Bug Trap is basically Sokoban, basically I just stole the levels, made 20-30 of my own and took some free graphics and changed the idea to trapping bugs.. I did the music/coding myself and used some free .wav files for the sounds..

The site has been up about 6months but still has 3-4 serious bugs which I need to fix before I start advertising.. Am hoping to do it this month as am off work for 4-5 weeks..  Not many people have played on site,  have less than 50 registered users and never see anyone playing, however I arrange to meet some ppl for the odd game which is fun..

As I didnt write the Server and not an expert how it works... However it is Server Socket Based and sends all the moves/user table info etc.. in XML format (see http://jogre.sourceforge.net/protocol.htm for more info).

Only advise is to be realistic, building this from scratch is complicated and will take ages.. Mainly handling all the exception circumstances (player leaves the table mid game etc).. I started doing this a few years ago and gave up (at which point I found Jogre and used their code)..  Also finding a VPS to host the site was a little tricky.  I went for a dedicated server in the end but you end up paying more.. Took me a few weeks to find one.. Good luck!

Nice design. Great color combination of the board and the chess pieces.  Cool

When we dream for something, always make it a point to do necessary steps to achieve it by means of planning solution and taking opportunities because that dream won't come to you. -my sample custom essay

Chess Graphics!

Hello! I have my boardgames now on my site,
i have my chess/checkers pieces and Air Pilots 1917, you can find them from this link -> http://temp4321.dy.fi

The Java Applet is at the bottom of the site, here comes some keys ->

F5 -> Chess.
F6 -> Checkers.
F7 -> Reversi.
F8 -> Air Pilots 1917.

All game demoes can be "controlled" with mouse, there is no real game rules yet implemented, rules are coming at near days/weeks/months.

so link to Applet at the bottom of the site -> http://temp4321.dy.fi

image link chess -> http://temp4321.dy.fi/images/shakki.png
image link reversi -> http://temp4321.dy.fi/images/Reversi.png
