Topics I've Started

Game Multi-Threading

26 December 2012 - 10:10 AM

I am currently writing a library, and this library currently has 1 Main game thread, and it gets started by creating an instance of a Room: 

Room room1 = new Room1();


Well, what other types and how many threads should a game have?


package SpaceShooters;

import JGame.Game.Game;
import JGame.Room.Room;
import SpaceShooters.Rooms.Room1;
import javax.swing.JFrame;

public class Main extends JFrame{

    public static void main(String[] args){
        Game game = new Game("Test Game");
        game.startWindowed(800, 600);

        // This starts the main game thread by extending "Room"
        // It tests for key pressings mouse clicks, and repaints the screen
        Room room1 = new Room1();



Noob Modeling Software

19 February 2011 - 01:42 PM

I am not very good at making 3d models, so is there any software out there that makes it easy and quick for people like me?

Python and Blender

31 December 2008 - 04:22 AM

I would like to learn Blender (For my graphics), and Python (To make the game). So My question is, does anyone know of any good information as how to work with these? I am still a beginner, and I don't know much about this, and I can't find any books about this either. I would like a tutorial that walks a user through a basic game, with step by step instructions for creating the object in blender, then using Python to import the object to be used in the game and be controlled in the game. Thanks!

Language To Start With

28 November 2008 - 05:06 PM

I am just starting to program, I know PHP very well, but I would like to start programming some games (Computer). I don't want to do text based games, I would like to use graphics. So, I would like to get some questions answered if you don't mind. 1. What language would be best to start with? 2. What are some good tutorials to read for that language? 3. Extra information here.

What would be some good reasons for an online server? A few things I can think of are: - High Scores - Game Updates Is there anything else? I would like to make a list, so I can make a free server for those who can't afford one.
