I'm back. Alot of my time since I last posted was spent either travelling or fishing. I didn't catch anything, but it was fun none the less. I did manage to get some coding time in so I managed to make some serious headway into the code for the little Java game. The code was mostly background stuff though so I didn't get any of the game specific code done. I'm going to keep on working on it today. So I might be able to get the base code out of the way and get down to the game content.
I enjoyed getting back into Java though. The last time I used it was when Java 1.3 had just came out. I can see why its used in colleges though. Your code tends towards moderately effective OO without even trying, its kinda cool. Obviously it doesn't count as a REAL language [grin] but its still fun.
When the game's playable I'm going to post it in the GDS in jar format. I don't feel like putting it in an applet. Anyway, down to work.
