I mentioned previously that I was going to help a friend with his mobile game development company, and so I finally got around to learning how to work with J2ME.
I’m reading J2ME Game Programming by Martin J. Wells. I don’t much care for his randomly inserted jokes, and it is fairly obvious that the book is geared towards Windows. At one point I thought that Sun didn’t offer a MIDP1.x package for Linux-based systems, but I finally found it. I really didn’t want to be forced to use Windows every time I worked games in general, let alone mobile games.
It didn’t take me long to get things going, as you can see:
/me finally gets to check off an entry in his TODO list.
