Hi! I'm new here and I'm searching a guide to start develop Java 2D games. I know well Java (GUI and code) but I want to create games! Please link me a good guide! Thanks in advance!

Hey Nuko32 and welcome to JGO!

This post explains your choices and offers a timeline for creating Java games.

Good luck!

hmm, we really need a "please read before posting" sticky, because this is like the 5th time someone has posted this exact thing, or something very similar.

but in any event,

Everybody ignores sticky posts. They seem like a good idea, but don't work in practice.

At least we can refer them to it and complain about people not reading stickies.

Indeed. David Spade is still waiting for someone to tell him where he can learn LWJGL.

sorry I forgot to add "this week"

although riven does have a point, I actually had to go check if there was a sticky before I posted because I really wasn't sure that there wasn't one :/

Because you put it small, tiny and not attractive. It has only "always on top" and different bg color for advantages. Force who want to register to read it! Replace that Einstein question with something asking something that should be known after read that.

Unfortunately unfeasible. You end up asking an open ended question, which is hard to verify. Besides that, it is not randomizable and therefore will quickly end up in forums with answers included. This already was the case with the code-snippet that was on the JGO activation page, which slowly but steadily led more and more human spammers in. Since then has been replaced with a randomized version, and we're 'safe' again, for a while.


Last but not least: the number of sticky items is directly proportional to how poorly maintained it is.

@Riven
No, as the whole earth citizen do. It's just alternative to the sticky. The real job is we provide something to read, and as Sickan said we can complain to them for posting something that had been written.

Writing text that is guaranteed not to be read, and then confronting those who have not read it, sounds like a really bad plan. It doesn't solve anything.

Yeah but we're out of options. Other sites have almost similiar manner with all sticky and rule. In StackOverflow they encourage poster to do search first, not work.

It's not a problem worth solving, as the solutions are worse than the problem.

Don't worry, there is no sticky to read, that is what we are discussing Smiley

Ah, yes. That's a pretty good system, actually. There's a built-in search bar with something like google instant that pops up when you try to post something.

We programmers love to solve problems exactly once, turning boilerplate code into a library routine that gets called, and get frustrated when we have to repeat ourselves because of some inexpressiveness in the language or whatever.  Problem is, new people are always being born, growing up, coming here, learning java (not a total order there) and pretty much everyone learns in one of just a few ways, few of which involve digging in to all the resources at hand before engaging the community.  You can build up resources, but like it or not, it's still a process that you'll have to repeat constantly.

Personally, I'd rather have that problem than a dead community or even a large one that had the atmosphere of a reading room.  Obviously that isn't to sanction helpless noobs who just want spoonfeeding all the time, but otherwise I think we should take pride in how much we give newbies the benefit of the doubt.

And we can increase our post counts too! Grin
