The holidays were busy. I accomplished exactly nothing. Well, except for one important thing. My original project is being put on hold for a while. I realized something very important, and if you are a programmer (and happen to be following this…the odds of which are slim, I know), then you have been expecting this: I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.
That said, I’m going to tackle something a little simpler. I’m going to port a board game into Java. It’s going to be a board game where you don’t need a sophisticated interface or hidden information (no hidden hand cards yet…I’ll wait to program network play until I can get hotseat down). It will be, in short, a dry run. Something simple so I can practice my programming ability without needing to know as much about graphics.
It will still use OpenGL, specifically LWJGL. So, I’m working toward that ultimate goal. It’s just something a little more attainable. We’ll see how it goes.
Above is a scan of some tokens from the game. Do you know what it is?
Menschen sind nicht die dominante Spezies.
