    2nd PGD Challenge - "Platformation"

    Hey all,
    In my remaining time, I am going to attempt some sort of 2d side scrolling platform game using the Oxygene for Java Trial version

    For want of a better name, I have decided to call it "Platformation" (just popped into my head!!)

    I have decided to do some quick proto-typing in Lazarus first, and then port ideas across to Oxygene to speed things up

    so will you be using lwjgl or something else? maybe slick?
    Imagine I've written something clever here inspiring you to make something awesome. If that happens give me credits

    I will try lwjgl first and see how I go. I haven't heard of slick though what is that?

    I guess you are using jMonkey?

    Ahhh...I guess you mean this?

    EDIT: hmm...neato! I had forgotten about this game engine, I think I will try it instead of using lwjgl directly...we will see

    Well, I think I have some ideas for my game <GASP!>

    I am going to have a ball that can roll around, or fly (limited fuel...collectable) using keyboard, and fire at enemies/targers using the mouse cursor.
    I am also thinking that I may have an 'elements' theme for each location - earth, fire, water (could include ice), air, neutral central hub location, and then some combination locations like fire/water, earth/air...

    Different enemies (in locations) might shoot heat rays (fire location: set fire to player for short time - extra damage), freeze rays (water location: slow player down temporarily)...do you see a pattern here? hahaha

    Very cool Paul! I'm glad you are having success.

    Will you be releasing source code so that others can have examples of how to make games using Oxygene for Java?

    I believe I will release the source code to help others...will probably not be the best code in my rush to finish the competition though! haha

    Hey all,
    any chance of trying the same simple demo (drawing blue box, Escape key exits...) on your computers (windows only ATM)?
    Debug.zip

    I think that all you need is Java.exe installed and somewhere on your path...

    I need to know if other people can run my Oxygene programs before I progress any further
    Just unzip it (makes a folder), and run the platformation.jar file; either double click if associated with Java, or open with and select Java.

    Thanks guys!
    cheers,
    Paul
