#5073529 Anyone know a program to design classes?

Posted by JMinator31 on 28 June 2013 - 02:29 AM

That seem like a nice program but i don't understand how to execute it. It's in a .jar file, which apparently is the same as a zip file, but when i extract it there is no executable, i don't get it.


I dont know much about the program but you might be able to use Violet if you install a Java Virtual Machine.

You could try using a light development environment like Bloodshed DevC++. You could also use a graphics library like OpenGL with it or SDL (if you could manage to learn any of them). And also, you could try using a pre-made game engine (Unity3D, probably best for any kind of game, IrrLicht, might need Visual Studio for it) and any tutorials they might come with. And when you say 'my computer sucks at being a computer' you mean its dangerously outdated and has low quality hardware and software right? And also you could always look for 2D and Text-based game design tutorials. I hope my post was helpful and I hope you have a productive day.


Also Vortez, I also used the Nehe tutorials to learn EVERYthing past drawing primitives in OpenGL. And the DirectX turorials were also handy.
