I am new to a gaming engine and this forum.
I have gone through the tutorials and examples for beginners.
I want to know that is it possible that i can change the colour of the cube repeatedly, based on the input values coming from another java class.
I want to do things in the game based on the inputs coming from other (user defined) java classes.
Thanks for you help,
Yes, you can change the color of a material on any update.
Thanks, for your reply.
So, if i want to repetatively change the colour is it necessary to use the “simpleUpdate(float tpf)” function? I cannot define my own for loop?
As usual with software development, there’s more than one way to do it.
simpleUpdate() should work much better than a for loop – the reason being that the for loop (unless written very craftily) would prevent other code (such as JME’s rendering code) from executing.
My inclination would be to create a custom control or maybe an app state, but for a beginner, overriding simpleUpdate() is much simpler.
hmmm, i understand…, i have used simpleUpdate() and its working good.
Thank you very much for your help.
