PS anyone with games they are "about to submit" and/or games that have been submitted but I've said "not until you make a JAR available", I suggest you get them in within the next week.

Because sometime around the end of next week we'll be promoting the site a bit more widely (only waiting for the articles section to be added), including (by the looks of things) on some sun-java pages. So, it's worth getting your games in now, if you can.

At some point it'd be really cool to have www.javagamesfactory.com point to the page but then who's going to fork out for the domain?

Lots of updates, mainly improved the graphics and layout, added icons, etc.

Also added back in the direct link to each game / game-developer's website.

Also there is now a "all games" link that gives you an alphabetically sorted index of all the games.

And...articles are now up!

New games added: Burst, Mini Adventure, Quest for Peace.

The new page linked from javadesktop seems not to be as well formatted and colored as the original.. Would it be possible to fix it sometime soon?

Its got the original content with the style sheet thats applied to the JGF pages. Its quite interesting that you think the old one was better, I had quite a few comments about it being very hard to look at Smiley

Maybe we could add a link to go to the original version, or one to just change the style sheet or something?

I like the new game category icons a lot better than the full screenshot and frame that was there before!! Looking good Smiley

Um, it would help if you had some specific comments; otherwise we can only guess.

If you're comparing it the maroon/black colour-scheme, I'd had 3 or 4 complaints about that one, and no-one had said they liked it (as opposed to other aspects that had received positive feedback).

The current design is slightly let down by the fact that Microsoft employs monkeys who can't even implement something as simple as an alpha channel, and appear too lazy now they've got rid of Netscape to actually fix such bugs (I've been affected by this one on various projects for years...Microsoft effectively ensures that no website can use alpha-blended images; great!) [incidentally, if anyone knows a workaround to this that does NOT involve hard-coding the images onto a given BG, and is not as ugly a hack as this: http://webfx.eae.net/dhtml/pngbehavior/pngbehavior.html then I'd love to hear it...]. Incidentally, IIRC it's been 7 years that MS haven't bothered to fix this bug.

I'd though this was about the change of tutorial style sheet, I noticed the <pre> blocks in the new style didn't seem to retain tabbing information.. bit odd, didn't even know you could turn it off.

Ah, I see now  Embarrassed

It was just using the default jgf stylesheet, which doesn't have any info for PRE or etc IIRC. We need a new css for articles on JGF.

Trembovetski, perhaps you could summarise what you like about Kev's original css, and we can then incorporate those aspects into a JGF-sitewide css for all articles? Myself, I like the white-on-black code.

Unbelievable blahblahblahh!

There's more doc content on your web site than on java.net games site! And I don't need to talk about the games section.

There's a problem here...

Anyway, congratulations for your great work!

Thanks. Although it's a group effort.

Unfortunately, there will be no updates for a while now - Mighty Morphin f***-up Mandrake has just decided (for no apparent reason) to commit suicide (rpm segfaults on everything, and I had a critical upgrade to perform). I have 2 deadlines today, and yet now I have to somehow find the time to rebuild a machine from scratch (from prior experience about 20 times, this'll probably be around 1 week, because no linux installer actually works, often the "latest drivers" don't work, and all the stuff you want to install is incompatible with the stuff you've already got, so you have to hack the OS to *allow* you to install the apps you need). This is what you get for running linux on a desktop Sad.

Ah well. The kernel was crashing twice a day already anyway.

As much as I think it will be fun... let's not start the Linux bashing thread all over again.  I have been where you are now and I feel your pain.  Luckily I was able to get work to buy me the Mac Smiley
