    Lightbulb Hello!

    I am A 27 year old male from Michigan USA, my primary interest in code is to learn enough to make a fairly complex RPG from notes in my room into a one day working game, I have been aspiring to make games and am looking to use the simple retro-style games of the past 3 decades as a example to develop a coalescent game i can call my own, i deeply want to do this for the self gratification i will feel designing this theoretical program one day, maybe not today, but each day as a step to the great work being completed.
    My primary focus then will be on first a improved understanding of the syntax and the fundamentals of JAVA, how to make multiple class's communicated, and how to use the language inside of eclipse as it was designed to be used, I have a long way to go, but i would like to learn to make rogue like randomized graphical game tile worlds, with additional procedural content generation, I would like to understand how multiplayer networking would be implemented in the future, but there is so much i have to learn!

    I Just wanted to say hi! and to detail why i am here

    use the language inside of eclipse
    A comment: eclipse is a useful tool for building computer programs. Programs can be built using a simple editor. The final program should not have anything to do with eclipse. Many older programmers recommend beginners start learning java by using an editor and executing the program from the command prompt to get a better understanding of how java works. Also there is a learning curve for using eclipse that shouldn't compete with the efforts a beginner makes to learn java. OMO
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
