Esenthel for java?
i just realised that there is both directX, and openGL SDKs for java, so i was wondering if it was possible to make an Esenthel engine for java?

first of, i dont know if you can code in java, or if its even possible?

secondly i dont know if it would require a complete rebuild of the engine, or if its just some minor changes, it would take to make it work with java?

just thaught it would be cool to be able to make 3D applets with Esenthel pfft

I'm sure that it is possible to use Java for game code (but it still would base on the C++ engine which handles all the window/directx stuff) - still I don't know how this can be achieved

but I don't think its possible to use directx 3d graphics engines in java applets

i read that the java3D API, supports the directX graphics libary :/

dont know much about java though... never used it before! but it would be worth learning if it could be used with esenthel pfft

Re: Esenthel for java?
still the question is if the java 3d is meant for applets (as I'm guessing this is your target)
applets are used to be launched in browsers, to launch simple applications across the internet
remember that when doing games you have lots of data (lots of megabytes), sending them to a browser through internet realtime isn't very good.

http://www.runescape.com (a verry popular browser MMO) is a java applet, using OpenGL, so i guess the same could be done with directX...
but if you dont know so much about java, and java3D you will proberly not be able to make a java version of Esenthel engine...

besides: i would rather have you improving the current engine grin

I've checked it, and indeed it's nice to see that someone made realtime game with 3d graphics in a web browser.
But that's not the kind of thing I'm targetting right now smile

Re: Esenthel for java?
i used to play runescape and it did run fine when it loaded up, but it does use alot of bandwidth and i stopped playing it because it was just soo repetitive and slow.

The only online games i like to play are flash and php text based games...

Im an official Esenthel Nooblet
