UnamedGameProject: Suddenly I’m Finding Some Good Tutorials.

Wouldn’t you know it, the day after saying that I couldn’t find tutorials that explained the information that I need clearly enough, I start finding a plethora of tutorials that are doing just that. Now there is not one that covers all aspects the way that I like them, but when I take several of them and mix-n-match what they have to say, I find out more and more information.

Right now my plan is to list the tutorials that I found useful in each of the future posts I make on this project. I’ve already rendered my first 3d box using the LWJGL and this tutorial: “‘Let’s Make a Voxel Engine’ LWJGL port”.

I plan on giving a better report on what I’ve done with this in my next post.

I’m Going to Learn Something New! How to Work with LWJGL!

After a few months of crazy work, I’ve decided that I’m ready to try to do something new. Something just for me, well mostly just for me. I hope that maybe afterwards some people may find it fun too. I’ve decided I want to write a computer game. I’ve got a few ideas on what I want to do for a game, but first I need to learn how to use the library. I’ve decided to use the LWJGL for the basis. The problem I’ve found is that there aren’t much in the way of tutorials, or books on the subject. The tutorials I’ve found were somewhat helpful but not something I could stand to use for long. So basically I’m going to document what I’m doing to learn how to write the game.

I have no plans on how long this should take. I’m guessing it will take a while to write. Once I’m done though I do plan on releasing it so people can play with it. So hopefully all goes well. If you have any ideas on how best to document my work let me know in the comments below.

After a Long Time I’m Finally Back.

Well some couple of years ago my site was hacked and I pretty much lost everything. I sort of rage quit the whole idea of running a website for a while. I’m back again and am going to start from scratch my development blog, and project site. I’m hoping this time it will be a little better. In the last couple of years I’ve learned a lot more and I think I have a lot more to share. So keep your eye on this space for my discussions and comments.
