Yes I be a contemplater

Sign in to follow this  


Ok after much thought about what I want to do game development wise my final decision is to use Java and JOGL. I made this decision for a few reasons.

1. Ease of cross platform distrobution via Web start.
2. I am extreamily more fluent in Java then any other language basically because it was one of my first languages and I studied it in college.
3. I already have books for reference on Java and OpenGL incase I need to look something up.

It is amazing what contemplation can do especially with a goal in mind.

Just to throw a spanner in the works, have you contemplated LWJGL? Unlike Jogl the fullscreen mode actually works, and it's generally better supported too.

yes I have and atm I find JOGL better. Lots of improvements have been done to it. I have had no issues at all with JOGL. I am not too keen on the layout of LWJGL either.
