a old MS paint gameA bad game maker game...made with game maker
The game looks great. I don't know what the heck he's talking about. What competition did you submit the game to?
Apr 24, 2014Macrobugs is a free Galaxian style old school game. It takes "retro" to a whole new level by using shaders to make it look like you are actually using a arcade game machine! Please download it and try it out at here. Download the zip and extract it. Double click "play.jar" to play. Press C to insert a coin.Posted in: General Gaming
Here are some screenshots:
It was written in java. Please enjoy!
Apr 24, 2014I've never modded minecraft, but I use both LWJGL and Slick-Util routinly. If you want to use fonts, here are 2 options.Posted in: Modification Development
Option 1: Use Slick-Util
In order for Slick-Util to work, you must make sure you added the jar to the build path. If you do this in a minecraft mod, you should be able to achieve this by opening minecraft.jar in 7-Zip or WinRar, and adding "Rsrc-Class-Path: ./ slick-util.jar" to the manifest.mf file. If you do try this, make sure you include the slick util jar in the bin folder of minecraft. Unfortunately, I've never tried this before in minecraft, only on my own programs, so I have no idea if it will work.
Option 2: Write your own font loader
Don't worry, it is not as hard as it sounds. This is how slick util does it:
- Load fonts using java's java.awt.font class
- Draw all the characters you need onto a BufferedImage
- Take the BufferedImage data and use it on a texture
- Write a function that converts the string's characters into texture coordinates.
Aside from these two options, the easiest and most viable option would be to just use bitmap fonts. They are easy to load and easy to work with. On top of that, minecraft already has its own bitmap font, and bitmap fonts take up less space.
