    Java101. 4 years PHP experience. Headed to Game Dev. Good Read?


    I have 4 years of PHP experience.
    9 years of OO scripting experience.

    I want to make a 3D game.
    Multiplayer online game
    In this game I to make my own 3D renderer. I want to learn that. I know there are some that exist already that are incredibly efficient, but I want to learn that stuff too.
    Just got passed the "Hello World".

    I'm asking for some direction beyond learning the basic syntax, OO interface & Linked Listing. I'll need to learn these 3 things as well. I just want to make sure that I have some direction when I'm done. I have programming experience. So this shouldn't take much more beyond 2 weeks.

    Thank you for any the help!

    I think I'll make a progress log for every step of my adventure. Doing this helps me focus.

    This is just a video of me saying the same thing.

    The author of Killer game programming in java released most of his book (and a whole lot more) to the public here

    It's a bit old, but it's probably a good place to start. On the other hand, Oracle's been pushing javafx for a while now, and despite no adoption, it looks like it's going to stick around so it might be better to start looking into that.
