I wouldn’t try to attempt a game until you have a least a basic understanding of these concepts:
All basic programming constructs (variable types, if, else, for/while loops, functions, importing)
Reference types, casting
Stack and Heap
Classes (Inheritance, polymorphism)
IO Streaming (Files, images)
Abstract data types (Lists, Hash tables)
Compiling and linking
Im sure theres a lot more i’ve forgotten.
I learnt all this using the book – “Java How to Program 8/e” by Deitel and Deitel. I would recommend it, it goes over a broad range of topics and describes all the code used in detail. But im sure theres other ways to learn. Good luck
On MacOSX, the jnilib files often do not get loaded from the given classpath by programs, Netbeans for example has this problem as well.
To use jnilibs on OSX, put them globally in /Library/Java/Extensions
Also, the standard Snow Leopard Java is 64bit and needs 64bit jnilibs. Maybe try setting the 32-bit java VM as the main one in Java-Settings..
Edit: Btw, Stupid Apple left only Java 1.6 on SnowLeopard, which makes it impossible to compile 1.5 Java programs out of the box, and these are the only ones that run on all Leopard machines (PPC, Intel32bit) … Oh, the Mac-Java woes… I’m sticking to Leopard for now…
Would be nice if the prebuilt libs in jmephysics2 on googlecode were java 1.5 binaries (jbullet etc). Because now I have to compile them myself…
…which is a response to my own even earlier topic which doesn’t show up on the last page of the topics list.
Ah… that topic somehow has the wrong date now. It shows up as being 2 years and 1 month ago even though I have posts I made after that say 2 years and 2 months ago. Well, the date on the article seems right… just the “time since today” in the listing is wrong for some reason. Odd.
it was something about ogre animation (again) on March 10, 2010 at 19:47

Try to use a nightly build: http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/nightly
and then sbook:
I find it more fun to plug and unplug power cables
We’re doing a hardware upgrade today so the RAM issue should no longer be an issue…
