If you want to ask about tools for particular purposes, start new threads for them. But otherwise this thread sounds more like something that should be in Off Topic?

I guess if the tool discussion is limited to perticular tools or game development then maybe this should be posted in offtopic. How do I put this in offtopic?

Hi Nonnus.

I've used the Netbeans form designer, which is pretty easy to use. But I've started to code my GUIs by hand again for tools. One of the things that annoys me about the form designer is that you can't change certain code without having to copy and paste the code to a .java file which means you can't go back to the form mode...

Here's another tool I use occasionally: http://goldenstudios.or.id/products/utilities/combine/index.php
it combines sprite images into a single file ready for use by your game.. It also can export to a few formats.. I'm not sure if having the sprite images side by side in one file is as great as it sounds as it doesn't let you have alot of freedom with bigger sprites, like bosses.. Is there a way around this? Maybe more empty space around each individual sprite image?

Any other tools posted here would be greatly apprechiated by me and everyone who is interested in tools for development Smiley

Perhaps more useful would be a webpage listing them, with reviews and links? If anyone wants to maintain such a thing, they can have an area on JGF to host and maintain it (and I'll write the supporting code etc).

The best tool I ever used was a machete. Really adds something to gardening.
