Some game convention going on?   Aliens invading?  Free porn on TV?  New game sucking everyones time?  Star Wars released on pirate sites?

Suspicously quiet lately...  to quiet  ...  Huh

Tired of waiting for the new boards. Sad  :-/

It's time to prove to your friends that your worth a damn. Sometimes that means dying; sometimes that means killing a whole lotta people.

Too much spam.

Need new board.

Must. Stop. To. Talk. Like. Captain. Kirk.

We really really need email verification. A forced lurk period of maybe 1hour. And of course the essential bit of censoring those spam "game" urls like gangsterwar.com etc. Seriously. The way it currently is is plain ridiculous.

The email confirmation thingy is a must really.  I was really surprised that this board logged me on after registration without it.

Apart from that - lots to do - There's grass to cut. I gave a talk on programming PICs yesterday evening.  Any spare time is going on learning openGL with an eye to entering the LWJGL16k comp and not looking too shabby.

There's still a pretty high barrier to entry into actually programming Java games as well... you can get far better results in less time with Blitz and dare I say it even C++ using the right libs.

Got to make it easier to write games somehow! Someone needs to come up with a nice Eclipse plugin for 2D LWJGL game development Smiley

Java rocks!

I have 3 reasons why I've not been here lately:-

1) I bought a Mac Mini, so I've been getting my head around all the subtle differences between them and my Windows Laptop.  It also means I can now test my LWJGL downloads and fix why they don't work on Macs!!!

2) My girlfriend is moving in so I've spent the past month moving furnature around the house trying out different locations for the hi-fi and plasma tv.

3) I burnt myself out on games programming during the 4k comp, need a rest of late night jar packing and coding.

Still check in as often as possible from time to time to read new posts.

That would be a good idea, if people are too lazy to learn OpenGL.

There are plenty of Java game engines which can handle everything quickly and easily, especially 2D.
IE: jME.

The problem is really a toolchain one: how do I get sprites into a game? Right now even using my libs that I've built up for years it still takes considerable knowledge and effort to just make a single sprite wiz around the screen.

Try it now, in LWJGL, from scratch.

Go download the Blitz Basic eval and try the same.
