    Default Where should I start learning game programming ?

    I have learned some javaFX basics. Text based RPG goes almost fine for me, I even attempt to create combat system ( turn-based ).

    But actually I want to move to a little bit advanced stuff: platformer,pacman, snake...
    I tried to watch video tutorials, Im confused and I dont know where to start.

    Most tutorials try to do it with swing, while I wish to do with FX, as it is easier and newer.

    I even dont know if I should pick game engine: Jmonkey/LibGDX.

    The advantage of something like libGDX is that it handles a lot of the basic stuff for you that, otherwise, you would have to set up in FX by hand.
    Basic things like game loops, for example, or some simple physics.

    It depends how much you want to do yourself.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    I get this notification, once I click 'generate'.
    Its enought for me to do games as windows aplication.

    If it is not possible to overcome, I need to install this plugin?market.bmp

    I have unticked 'android'. Hope works flawless.

    Also im not against learning game loop. If I find useful explanation.

    If you don't need Android, or HTML, then don't get it to generate those.
    Otherwise you need to install the Android SDK, which is available from the Android site, not that plugin you posted.
