Hello everyone, I'm new here. I'm working in a game named Spacedodge, though the name isnt chosen yet. Anyway, im beginner in java and need some help with my game.
I don't like game starting immediately after i open it. So i would like to make a menu, with couple buttons in it. How can i make it, and how can i make it to open before anything else?
I have 7 classes, Craft(it means spaceship), Enemyship, Missile, Craft2, SpaceDodge, Values and Window class. Craft and craft2 are just the players, missile is the missile players can shoot, enemy ship is the enemy(surprise?). SpaceDodge is the window where you can play the game and it makes the window size 400, 300, setDefaultCloseOperation, etc. Window class draws all the images. And I have Values class. It just makes couple variables, and Window and Craft classes extends it. So, how can I make a menu?
Another problem. How can i convert this to a file that can be played without having to open eclipse.(jar file or anything that can be played) I'm using Eclipse. I tried export but there comes and error, "A Java Exception has occurred". Should i use runnable jar file? If i do, what is the differences of these?
And my third problem is, when the game ends because player dies, it shows String msg. I would like to make a possibility to restart the program by pressing R button.
Thanks for help, tell me if i need to show any line of codes.
