Hi all,

I am writing a turn-based tiled 2d game, to keep things simple, and I want to mock up a prototype GUI. Currently I am using Java2D, but I am not really happy with it, as it takes too much effort to get the GUI running. Does anybody know a simple 2d renderer to easily make a prototype in?

Thanks in advance, Oebele

I am not sure what you really need. But if you are building a mock up which is something that doesn't have functionality and since you are mocking a GUI can't you use some drawing tool (offline or web based) to draw the GUI like Gimp or similar? It doesn't at least get any faster what comes to seeing the result, does it?

Cheers, Jaxes
