Hey guys, I've been experimenting with both JApplets and JFrames for both web-based and application-based games respectively.

I've found a vast variety of books and online tutorials that are devoted towards application-based games however
find that the amount of tutorials on web-based games that use JApplets are immensly lacking in comparison.

I was wondering if any of you lovely programmers could lead me into the right direction for developing games with
applets. It would incredibly help my quest in developing games as a hobby for the public to play Smiley

Programming for better games.

It is not that hard to switch from applications to applets and vice versa. Applications and applets have their pros and cons, we have already spoken about that here. Applets are easier to use for the final users as there is no explicit install but their support is not consistent on all web browsers and there are some limitations. Applications are a bit less easy to use for the final users but you have less limitations and you don't have to worry a lot about the browser (it is easier to make a stable game as an application than as an applet except if you make something really simple without hardware acceleration).
