    Re: synchronization

    Ahh, I think I see what you are saying. If it wasn't set up this way, it's actually possible that the separate thread could set isPaused to false AND execute notify() before the animator thread...

    Re: synchronization

    I think my problem is that I understand synchronization, but I'm not understanding how it works here.

    1. pauseGame() is called and isPaused is set to true.

    2. the animator thread will check...

    Re: synchronization

    I have a basic understanding of a mutex, but not a lot of hands on experience with threads in general. Basically, my understanding is that all code in synchronized blocks is known as the monitor, and...

    Oops, apparently the answer is yes, it does release the lock. But what is the point of synchronizing anything? According to the author, a boolean cannot be read by one thread and changed by another...

    Re: I'm lost

    hi stoptheerrors,

    A quick glance at your code reveals many problems. A few things catch my eye right away. First, I've never seen a main with a parameter other than args. The command line...

    Re: 2D Java Applet Games

    Ack, I think this is a bit of a problem for me. I would hate to dedicate so much effort into JOGL for a browser game. I would also hate to dedicate so much effort into Java3D if it is no longer...

    It's called Pro Java 6 3D Game Development. Might want to look into why there are 1 star reviews, though.

    Re: 2D Java Applet Games

    The author has a new book which came out in 2007; I think it's more focused on 3D. For some reason, it only has a 3 star review on amazon. Anyway, check this out:

    Re: 2D Java Applet Games

    Oh yeah, I'm going to start with 2D stuff first. It's just that the book says it uses Java 3D for 15 chapters or so, which I imagine is most of it. I was really planning on creating a game people...

    Re: 2D Java Applet Games

    Thanks, I bought "Killer Game Programming in Java". Just a quick question: Does the user require anything more than a standard JRE if I make use of Java3D? If so, this seems like a bit of a hassle.

    tax, cost, and payment are instance variables. This means that every Change object created will have its own copy of these variables. If you include the static keyword in the declaration, these...

    Are java applets still a frequent choice for browser games? Or would you say that something like flash has mostly taken over this aspect?

    Re: newbie question about Abstract methods

    Well, if the class is abstract, then you can't instantiate it. So, is it possible this abstract class is extended somewhere where the authorizeGet() method is implemented?

    Re: Why am I getting this output?

    If you use switch/case you should add a break after every case, otherwise it will fall through to the other cases.

    case 1: card = card.concat("Two "); break;

    case 2: card =...
