I am having trouble getting back into C because I have been professionally developing Java applications for I don''t remember how long. I am wanting to make a large scale multiplayer perpetual game and am pretty sure that no matter how good JIT compilers get, Java just wont have the speed needed. So, my question is, is it a good idea to go ahead and code the game in Java for quick developement (or as quick as possible) and if it turns out good enough to get financial backing to take it to market, then go ahead and convert it to C? What do you think about this plan? Thanks in advance, Thaynx If you can''t win, make sure the one that beats you breaks the record!

There was an article over at flipcode that discussed this approach breifly:


It sounds like a good idea if you have a lot more experience in Java. You might want to consider converting the Java into C++ instead of pure C, though, since the languages are much closer.

Good luck!
