well im looking to make A 2D game, and im really confused, becase i want to use JAVA because i know how good it is, its a 2D isometric view that i want to do, can any one point me to the java sofware i need?
To what are you refering as 'java software'??
Something like RPGMaker?? (nice piece of software
To program (different from making) a game in Java, you need:
- Java Development Kit: j2se actually in version 1.4.2
- Development Environtment: Anything that can aid you to write the java code.. ej: eclipse, SunStudio, NetBeans, etc.
Now, to make a game you need:
- To know the basics, like game loop, tiling, etc.
- To have a good design!
- Resources: art, music, etc.
- .... Money and Time
As someone pointed out, first you need to learn to program in Java... The Deitel&Deitel book is a very good start..
