Java, here I come!

Well I'm once again trying to move onto java. This time, unlike the other times I'm succeeding! ^-^ Flash is great for sharing projects online and making quick little games, but it's not flexible! I would like to be able to make games with my own drawing operations rather than flash doing it all for me! It's just a shame because I never posted any games yet on newgrounds... Newgrounds NEEDS to allow java games! That would be awesome!

How is it not flexible enough, and what do you mean by "your own drawing operations"?
Is your game engine _that_ complicated that Flash simply can't do it? I find that hard to believe.

GhostID responds:

It doesn't let you do your own drawing operations. By that I mean you cant do DIRECT calls to the graphics card. Just trust me on this, flash is not the way to go for the project I was under taking. :P I had a lot more I was going to add, but decided that if I do ever continue my project, it would be in java...

Nonetheless, good luck, soldier.

You're welcome, and thank you for playing!

Actually, I have two games here on NG. I presume you played Laser Stryker, the obvious one. My other game is called Blast Force, and it was submitted by my sponsor. I was not yet a member of Newgrounds at the time.

Blast Force is here:

When you get your Java game completed, please send me a message, and I'll check it out.

- Ziro out.

GhostID responds:

awesome game! :) It reminds me of bomber man! xD
Sure once my game is out, I'll send you a copy! :) It's somewhat done, but I started another project with my brother. I'll continue working on my space game soon, I'm going to add a final boss, power-ups and also more enemies! Thanks for the support btw! :)

You just don't know how to use Flash's bitmapData. Flash is a lot more powerful than you think.
But unfortunately since you can only program in 1 language for some reason, I can't even teach you :(

GhostID responds:

xD I know 8 languages! I just don't like flash anymore for a few reasons. Anyway JAVA FTW! :)

Haha btw, Java is free... Flash isn't >.<!
