In Topic: Learning Java

14 September 2012 - 03:48 PM

If books don't do it for you; as you already know C++ which is very similar to Java, it shouldn't be too hard to look through the documentations and self-tutor yourself. If this proves difficult then there are many books and online resources which help very much with the beginner process.

In Topic: Skyrim Mod

16 August 2012 - 10:12 AM

Hi, I agree with 6677 to an extent. I think you should try some more basic programming first. Try using the Skyrim creator kit and see what terrain modding you can do before trying to start with a huge project.

Also , will there be any problem selling my game as a Skyrim mod , like taking part of the revenue or something .

You can charge for a mod but I believe that would be a bad idea as because of your lack of experience (sorry if you have some) there will be better, free, mods.

Hope this helps you with your decision,


In Topic: Saving And Loading Object Arrays

16 August 2012 - 10:04 AM

Looks good to me. Something I would comment on is to flush a output/input stream before closing it.

So Eg:
[source lang="java"]save.writeObject(DA);save.flush();save.close();[/source]

This just makes things safer when closing files.

Hope this helped :)


In Topic: 2D Collision detection, need some help.

You want to check if the player intersects with the cube. This is going to be more difficult for you as they are in separate classes.


You may want to instead of having integers, change it into a rectangle:

Rectangle p = new Rectangle(x, y, width, height);

You can only use certain methods for collision with rectangles.

Hope this helped a little,
