I need an advanced java developers help.
Ok So My goal in life is to make a mmo. Big goal I know but its happening none the less.
So I would like to ask where you all think i should go from here?
Here is what i know how to do right now:
I Know all the basics of java:
I understand oop.
I understand how to use the for,while,and do loops.
I can read and debug most programming (as long as it is not obfuscated haha).
I can Start completely from scratch and know where i'm going.
I understand that games are actually just giant loops that do things over and over.
What i would like to learn:
I do not understand streams. (Also do i need to learn origional I/o before jumping into nio?).
I do not understand gui. (im pretty sure thats how you do most video games).
I do not understand how 3d works.
I do not understand what a game engine really is or how to make one.
I do not understand how to set up a client / server base. (streams im pretty sure might cover that).
I do not understand how to use a sprite sheet (just throwing that in there).
So pretty much i understand java, just not fluent enough to jump into a game.
So if i could get some advice or maybe some sites that will help me to get started. I would really appreciate it.
Also I'm not really expecting some huge site that solves all of this cause that never really happens. but ya. Thanks a lot =D
