Heh yeah, pretty cool!  Blogged about that this morning.

Contrary to what you might think, not EVERYONE visits your blog. :wink:


  • GOES TO VISIT RENANSE'S BLOG *

I thought only I read my blog…  :stuck_out_tongue:

Pretty cool but the link in Your blog doesn't work for me in firefox ( http://blogs.sun.com/jag/entry/contests_javaone/ )



whereas the link below ( http://blogs.sun.com/jag/entry/contests_javaone ) works fine ??



darn i just outed myself as a renanse blog reader

Hm, in the instructions for the flying duke's contest contain a link to the getting started wiki page ( http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/wiki/doku.php?id=getting_started ) which states that jdk 1.4.2 would probably be the best jdk to use for jme at this time.

some lines later it refers to jdk 1.5.0



is jdk 1.4.2 able to handle jme anymore ? sorry don't have the time to check out myself right now.

Nope

replaced all "1.4" strings with "1.5" in "getting started".

Thanks sfera, would really have been a shame to let 100reds of people download the wrong jdk.

…or start new threads asking about fixes… :stuck_out_tongue:

On a slighty more serious note: does jME work well with 1.6? (considering the audience, I'd worry more about people using that than 1.4).

it works well here with 1.6. i was never aware of issues with 1.6  :expressionless:

1.6 Works better than 1.5 on ubuntu edgy linux for me.

I have strange problems with the water effect tests which i remember to work on 1.5 but that can be through a change in cvs since then too.

There are still issues in 1.6 with JMEDesktop, but that's the only known issue for 1.6.

On Ubuntu I am unable to see refraction in the water test.  I'm using sun's 1.6 jvm...  Is that the issue you were mentioning?

Thanks, fixed.

I’m using sun-java6jre (Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105) Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 1.6.0-b105, mixed mode, sharing)) I’m on kubuntu feisty i386 I’ve only got two problems atm 1) http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/jmeforum/index.php?topic=4901.0 (JmeDesktop drop down bar not working with mouse) 2) I can’t run jme in full screen. My jme cvs isn’t to new but I think its at most 3 weeks old. I’ll update this weekend and just confirm… Furthermore the rest it working nicely including the water reflections.



I’m off-topic in off-topic :-o

No, the tests did fail with some GL exceptions like mentioned in this thread:

http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/jmeforum/index.php?topic=4484.msg35503#msg35503

Unfortunately i'm mostly jME - less at the moment as my home harddisk is on i'ts way to the customer care center at the moment, so i'm unable to reproduce this for some time.

It's the refractions I don't see, not reflections.  No issues going fullscreen on ubuntu (using native nvidia driver) though.

I had the same fullscreen issues until I rebooted.  :?



(running java6 on ubuntu edgy)

First I though it was ubuntu-bug-86103 but I now think its that my hertz in the game configuration doesn’t agree with “xrandr” :x (I ran fullscreen with the normal app.setDialogBehaviour(ALWAYS_SHOW_PROPS_DIALOG); and it worked XD)



Edit:

Oops last night was a late one... up until now didn't really know what Refractions was :| (Only knew the Afrikaans word)
