    Default I'm looking for some getting started kinda help

    Hello I'm new to this forum.

    I'd like to look into programming a game in java.
    Iv'e programed simple text-based games such as tic-tac-toe and battleship in C. But I'd like to do something more graphical in java. I have some experience from classes I've taken in java, some basic work with graphics in swing.

    My problem is knowing where to get started. My idea is to make a hacky-sack game. I understand how I will need to implement math in order to make it happen, its just coding it that I feel shaky about.

    Any information would be helpful to help me get going on this project.

    Hey Matress,

    This forums name is: Member Introductions, what gave you the idea programming problems are solved here?

    Pick a forum from the category: "Java Standard Edition Programming Help" and post your problem over there.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum Matress, you already opened a topic here so why dont you introduce yourself

    Hello Matress,

    Welcome to the forums.

    Bryan is right... This isn't really the correct forum to post this question in. I will possibly move this thread if you get many replies.

    Anyway, have you started to code this yet?

    Maybe you can post your pseudo code or math logic and we can take it from there
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.
