  2. Only one complaint, an ampersand is '&'

    It won't return anything to anywhere if the method isn't being called.
  6. Isn't this post in the wrong place then?

    Industrial, that's pretty good. I think my favourites are thrash, black & melodic death metal and deathcore.

    So I've not seen any topics on this, may have missed them, but is anyone a fan of standard metal or even into the extreme sides of metal?
  12. It's time to learn some Slick2D! This time we're aiming to just have a window which says "Hello World" on it! Please note the terms - AppGameContainer, BasicGameState, StateBasedGame, GameContainer & delta will be explained in the next tutorial Let's start with some classes! Make a new class called 'Display', I'd suggest putting it into a package mine in a package called: com.mace.teaching; Now make another class and call this 'State1', I'd also suggest putting this into a package but with an extra subfolder com.mace.teaching.states; is mine. Now let's run through the code we use in 'Display' package com.mace.teaching; //Below we import the required Slick classes import org.newdawn.slick.AppGameContainer; import org.newdawn.slick.GameContainer; import org.newdawn.slick.SlickException; import org.newdawn.slick.state.StateBasedGame; //Importing our State1 class for use in Display import com.mace.teaching.states.State1; //Here we inherit all the things we need from Slick's 'StateBasedGame' class public class Display extends StateBasedGame{ //Variables we'll use, g_name is the window title //Width = window width //Height is the window height static String g_name = "Slick2D"; static int WIDTH = 400; static int HEIGHT = 400; //Our constructor takes a string as a requirement public Display(String name) { super(name); this.addState(new State1()); //Here we add our 'State1' as a game state to be used //Don't worry if Eclipse readlines, we'll add the functionality for it to work soon! } //An inherited method from the StateBasedGame class @Override public void initStatesList(GameContainer gc) throws SlickException { // TODO Auto-generated method stub this.enterState(0); //Here we specify that we want state1 to be the one we enter first } public static void main(String args[]){ //Our AppGameContainer will create the GUI window we see AppGameContainer agc; try{ //Here we pass in this class as the StateBasedGame agc = new AppGameContainer(new Display(g_name)); //Setting the display mode, requirements for this function are - //agc.setDisplayMode(int width, int height, boolean fullscrean); agc.setDisplayMode(WIDTH, HEIGHT, false); //Here we tell it to create the window agc.start(); }catch(SlickException e){ //Just in case we can't create the window, we catch the exception e.printStackTrace(); } } } Here's the code for the class 'State1' package com.mace.teaching.states; //Imports again! import org.newdawn.slick.GameContainer; import org.newdawn.slick.Graphics; import org.newdawn.slick.SlickException; import org.newdawn.slick.state.BasicGameState; import org.newdawn.slick.state.StateBasedGame; //Inheriting the methods from BasicGameState public class State1 extends BasicGameState { //The text we will draw to our new window String hi = "Hello World"; @Override public void init(GameContainer gc, StateBasedGame sbg) throws SlickException { //In Slick this method is called once to initialize data and that's it //Because it's called once it throws a SlickException for when we get to //resource loading } @Override public void render(GameContainer gc, StateBasedGame sbg, Graphics g) throws SlickException { // This is the method which will render data to the screen //It gets called a number of times per second so it can constantly update the position //of objects on the screen //The instruction below tells the graphics tool to take a string variable //And draw text to the location of 150,150 //The generic requirements for rendering are - g.RandomFunc(Object obj, int x, int y); g.drawString(hi, 150 , 150); } @Override public void update(GameContainer gc, StateBasedGame sbg, int delta) throws SlickException { // This is the update method where the bulk of the code will go // This is where things like collision detection, key presses & general game logic are //handled. It gets called in the game loop cycle as often as render. //The calling per cycle will become important when we use delta } @Override public int getID() { // This tells our 'Display' class what number this state is return 0; } } If all is well, when you try run this you should see - If not, paste any console messages and I'll you why. The full details of what we've done will be explained in the next tutorial 'Tut 1 - Code walk through!'
