How bout my info bit I just wrote? Smiley  Maybe I should publish it Wink  Until then, it's free for you:

The source included is the most helpful part I think but the URL there has the contents that outline some of its most important points

I was looking for more of a thing on code/project structure than specific tips and tricks. Essentially, I've written a bunch of small silly games, and want to try something bigger and am looking for a guide on what sort of code layout/structure I should be using.

IE how exactly the View/Controller/Model setup works, and alternatives.

My personal favorite is Developing Games in Java by David Brackeen. The source code for the book can be found here His code is pretty self descriptive, and there are plenty of comments to describe what he is doing.

With that being said, he uses a multithreaded approach to developing games which is fine for basic Java2D stuff; however, if you want to make a game with OpenGL either through JOGL or through LWJGL, you should try to pull everything into the main loop.
