If you paste in source code does it make the JAR for you or is that just for sharing your source?

Blimey! Just got back & there's a zillion games in progress already! I'm glad I got GTA in last time! Hmmm - anyone for Fable4K?

EDIT: Hang on, they're almost all by one author... Go Zeroone!

Thanks Smiley

I designed the site. There's lot of work that still needs to be done about the content structure, but I'll work on that later.

Giving Java a second chance after ludumdare fiasco

Damn if zeroone is not off to a FLYING start!  Has the right idea though, doing old time pixelly gfx is the way to go. 

This is interesting: ran Rivens shrinker on the gradius4k source posted with the game:


a.java => 40022 bytes
a.class => 9083 bytes
a.normal.java6.jar => 5239 bytes
a.normal.java6.pack => 7702 bytes
a.progrd.java6.jar => 5104 bytes
a.progrd.java6.pack => 7596 bytes
db9616e30450a7ea9a010768bb4cabec.progrd.java6.bj.pack.gz => 4093 bytes  => test
db9616e30450a7ea9a010768bb4cabec.normal.java6.bj.pack.gz => 4120 bytes  => test
db9616e30450a7ea9a010768bb4cabec.progrd.java6.kz.pack.gz => 4137 bytes  => test
db9616e30450a7ea9a010768bb4cabec.normal.java6.kz.pack.gz => 4162 bytes  => test
db9616e30450a7ea9a010768bb4cabec.progrd.java6.7z.pack.gz => 4310 bytes  => test
db9616e30450a7ea9a010768bb4cabec.normal.java6.7z.pack.gz => 4398 bytes  => test


I figured ~9k of bytecode would get down to 4k, but above the normal jar is way smaller than the pack200 jar, that's a surprise (to me at  least...).

I would like to nominate this thread as "sticky". Being a Newbie, it took me a while to find out where the rules are posted and how to submit a game. Neither of the other two "sticky" threads for the 4K Game Competition have a clear reference to www.java4k.com like this one does, right at the top.
