Java games rock!


« Posted 2005-03-03 02:33:35 »

okay.....basically, I am writing a 3D game like the LightCycling from the old "TRON" movie....motorcycles with light walls emitted from the back.  

it's gone well.....models all import, finally made a floor I like.....and then this.  I can't figure out how to use something such as KeyListener or the like to interperet input.  
a while ago, i wrote a 2D game (extending Applet and implementing MouseMoveListener) and input from the Mouse worked just fine, but keyboard input never worked there, either.

I have a basic environment class, creating the Scene Graph, etc, which calls a custom "turnCycle" behavior that doesn't work.  I used "KeyNavigatorBehavior" for a while and that worked (almost) perfectly....see, the cycles are supposed to turn in 90 degree increments, so a smooth turn is not what I want.  turnCycle is not being "woken up"...so to speak.  

I did a little research and I'm wondering if I need to use any of the javax.swing.* classes....I had assumed KeyListener would work this time around, but again I am stumped.

HELP.....please.

first, you could take a look at sun's tutorials to refresh your mind.
To do it, simply use a behavior using WakeupOnAWTEvent.
