A leftover from the wiki we once had:

Please use this thread to suggest links to even more resources.

I just added a script that adds all JGOs member websites (entered in the profile).

My latest brainchild TableLayout could go under GUIs. libgdx could go under Physics Libraries as it has native bindings to Box2D.

Is it fair to assume TableLayout hasn't maturized yet, thus it might be good to add an 'incubator' section?

Bigpoint.com can go under the 'Java Game Portals' section, they allow java games and share 70% of the revenue the game makes with the developer.

The current state is that the core of the layout algorithm is pretty solid. The implementations for each framework are in flux, but the last couple days have been productive and I'm really liking the current approach. Last night I added syntax highlighting and on the fly compilation and error underlining to the editor. The lib has 2 users already. Smiley It has proven very useful so far but is only 2 months old, so I wouldn't mind if it was in an "incubator" section.

Love this new feature. I would suggest IzPack for an Installer resource.

What's the current thinking on bringing back a wiki?  I've found myself wanting to throw together some intro material in several subjects...not that this means that I'd actually ever get around to doing it.

Some stuff off the top of my head:
The Matrix Cookbook
The Handbook of Mathematical Functions
Principles of Digital Image Synthesis

It's not very likely that the wiki will be back any time soon.

The wiki was online for two months, and despite all good intentions nobody actually posted anything, except for kappa who made the frontpage (which is restored now).

Speaking as a hypocrite who never contributed to the wiki, I do think that having some 'official' JGO tutorials (in particular, game loop for applet, game loop for application, fixed time steps vs variable time steps, why multiple threads are not for newbies, how to read the keyboard correctly) would've made quick work of answering a lot of the newbie questions that have cropped up recently.

Agreed. I believe there is quite a few handy threads on the forum that should be on the resources page.

I fully agree. I created http://wiki.games4j.com/ basically for that purpose, not long before the JGO wiki came online. Since the wiki appeared on JGO I didn't do much about it, and used it more as a personal notepad. It does however address some of the things that dishmoth brought up and more, and since the JGO wiki isn't on it's way back soon, then it could be worth doing more with it.

It would obviously be better if it was integrated but some sticky post on linking to it or in some way try to guide n00bs over there before posting a question could be good.

The wiki is currently crazily wide open, so anyone is welcome to add stuff (but you are welcome to create an account as well). I have had 2 spam posts so far, so I will keep it open until it becomes a problem. Though getting new valid content flowing into the Wiki is tricky.

Basically an FAQ linking to posts - there must be some questions you old-timers are fed up of answering by now!  persecutioncomplex

And, I quite like Infrequently Asked Questions too - all the things that people should be asking about but don't.  Of course, finding threads to link to there may be more difficult!

It's not that we'll add anything to the wiki, it's knowing that if we wanted to, we could. Smiley

The thing is that most of those are things which we're not going to get consensus on, because there isn't one "best way".

Nope. It's an inherent problem of the internet and running periodical checks on those URLs is way to much work for the negligible inconvenience it causes.

Only showing sites for members who have posted in the last twelve months would probably do the trick.  (But I imagine Riven's thought of that already, so maybe it's not possible for some reason.)

I hadn't thought of it, but that's because I wasn't looking for a solution.

It's such a simple 'fix' that I'll probably do it that way (column=lastLogin).

Can I ask something, on "Developing Games on Java" there is text "Get the book ... Or, buy direct from the publisher". Is the book free to download (I assume "or" means that buying is second option)? if yes, where is the link? if no, why did he use "or" word to make me confused? Smiley
