[java] Converting mobile phone game to PC application

Recommended Posts

Billy Lee    122
Is it possible to convert an application developed for mobile phones to a PC application? I don't mean running it on an emulator but rather have a version specific to the PC. It might run in an applet for instance. How would I go about this and would there need to be much modification to the existing code?

My guess would be that the game logic and data model is separate from the graphics and OS calls. So basically, you need to port/rewrite the graphics & OS calls to PC, and the other stuff should just carry on over for the most part.

If you actually have source code for the game that's not obfuscated and/or obtained through decompiling, and actually has comments and stuff - then chances are it's because you wrote it in the first place; in which case you should be smart enough to figure it out for yourself. Yeah? :)

There are lots of different emulators out there that will let you do this easily. Go look for the nokia emulator. It's probably part of the developer stuffs.
