This is a tycoon-like first person game about making and selling stuff. In this, I want loads of stuff to be possible. Yes, this includes llama powered flight. The applet might be here eventually, but it's quite hard to have non-crashing textures in an applet.

I'm currently working on allowing you to launch the game through a browser- it will be linked soonish.

Thanks for the support. A demo is coming soon, the code is all working. It's just that java applets are considered 'insecure' by browsers, so I am still trying to make it load the graphics dll files.

Unfortunately, Java applets are nearly impossible to use (Oracle hates them). So, instead, we get something really annoying. To play, go to https://github.com/Kevycat/Game and download tha 'Kevycat' folder. drag that into your windows C:/ProgramData folder. Then, right clock on Kevycat, properties, and disable read-only. I know, this is a lot. I just needed somewhere for the program to put all of its files on any computer. And sorry to all the non-Windows suers who might see this. I just don't know how to use MacOS or Linux.

Correction: drag all the files into a new folder named 'Kevycat' and that goes into ProgramData. The .bat file is to launch the program.

Managed to get it working Smiley

Why does it need an internet connection to run?

You could use this http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php to make an installer

It's great your making progress Smiley

It just uses the internet to make sure you're running the latest version. Could really use an auto-updater though. That INNO thing looks cool, but I feel like I could make a simple Java-based installer faster than learning that new language/application first. I will link some sort of installer here soon, which will really be a relief to us all.  Tongue

Fortunately, I made an installer now.  Tears of Joy
It's at https://Kevycat.github.io/Game/installer.jar

Also, in properties you need to give the installer permission to write files for obvious reasons.

Thanks for the installer Hand Thumbs Up Right

Shouldn't the game just check and run anyway if it can't reach the server (as oppose now it just refuses to start)?

Thanks for thee feedback about the version-checker thing. I'll see about making the batch file check for updates, but that could cause crashes when offline too, so I'll just try to find a solution to this all.  Hand Any Key

It won't auto update anymore, so you'll have to run the installer jar each time an update is uploaded.

Congratulations! You have an amazing opportunity not to get an update for up to a week after it's coded! I don't know why. Eclipse is weird.

I was wondering why you use Java for game dev? I mean, you probably most familiar with it, but it seems to give you some issues in regards to gamedev

I greatly prefer the object oriented approach, and I think it's more that I don't have a good knowledge of eclipse than Java itself. To avoid these it should work to make backups and be careful of settings. I think I violated the second one here. But still, building a backup file that I didn't know existed?
