I feel the need to brag. So, I made this thread.
Basically, if you're working on a project, and you want people to see your progress, just make a post here.
Me first: I can now walk around on different maps that are linked to each other, I now have an inventory with items and money, and I now have an NPC stationed in the city. I still need to make him be able to sell stuff, but the important thing is his user icon, which took me a while to make. It's not easy writing 'warez' in a 20x20 box.
Requirements: jre 1.5 (newest stuff from java)
Instructions: arrow keys to walk, i to view and close the inventory.
If you're not doing anything but your char is moving, then someone else is moving it.
If you're trying to move and you can't, you're either trying to move into a column or a rock, or there's lag. If there's lag, just wait a bit.
If it starts blitzing out, that's lag. Just move around and it will go away.
There are two maps: CITY and MAP, with CITY being to the west of MAP. So, from the paved place, go right to get to the plains and vice versa.
Any comments/bugs? Please no "it's going slow" comments unless you're volunteering to send me two gigs of ram for $5.
