Just wanted to make a quick introduction of myself as prompted... hehehe.
I recently started using Java about 6 months ago after using Blitz3d for a few years, DarkBasicPro for about a year and visual basic for about 10 years. I was very happy using Blitz3d but after completing a game, I was stumped with deployment issues. I am obsessed with multiplayer and love playing against or with people. My efforts are all geared toward multiplayer games. Of course, I like making the single player version first, then add the multiplayer later. I recently created a website at Mightyrealms.com which focuses on Java Games, single player and multiplayer. I will be looking at adding to and creating new games to the site as I become more proficient.
I am looking forward to becoming a contributing member of this community.
