Hey there,
My name is vanZeben and this is a Youtube series that I have created to teach people how to develop several types of games in Java with only core JDK libraries. This particular series will teach you how to create a 2D top-down game engine that will later be used to create various types of games based off of it. Feel free to check it out if you're interested.

If you have any suggestions on how to do these videos or things that I have not explained fully enough or things that I have explained incorrectly, feel free to let me know and I can see what I can do about it.

I'm not sure if you said anything in your videos (I haven't watched them all) but it seems you just copied Minicraft's source code basically one for one... along with it's text. Shouldn't you at least tell the viewers where the code is from? Disregard this if you have mentioned it's from Minicraft, please don't take any of this to offense. Cheesy

Hey mate, have been following these tutorials so far they have been great! Awesome work.

Just some feedback from a relatively new Java coder, (I assume this is the target audience you're aiming for).

Some of your explanations are very quick, making it hard to grasp the concept before the video moves onto another topic, although being a video it's easy to go back and replay.
An example being where you explain how the colour class works by reading in the RGB values from the sprite map, had to watch that a few times for it to sink it.

I'm really just nick picking, but I thought you'd appreciate some feedback from someone who has watched your videos.

OK, gotta go watch video 6!  Smiley

Thanks for the feedback on this. The original target audience was actually someone who is a little more experienced in java and it's more how to apply your understanding in regular java to game development.

Also as for the question/comment about minicraft. The early versions of the project were inspired by conventions used from games such as minicraft, however once the base layers were all set it has expanded a lot. More recently I have been going into Multiplayer support on the project.

Feel free to check out the start of those tutorials here: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/Uwr4WCxzB_A?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/Uwr4WCxzB_A?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>
