How can I optimize my game
 
Last week I designed and programed a test game in Alice 3 as my first completed project in Alice. I am trying to get familiar with this super cool game making tool. These are my questions
:D
1.Can I create a variable that can be used in the whole program (like in java the static variables defined out side every methods)? How?

2.How can I use mouse just to change views and click on something rather than moving objects? (not the default mouse setting)

3.How to make objects prevent camera to get through, like an obstacle.

4.How to import images as billboard; I can not find out the certain directory to store the billboard thing…

5.How to launch a new window(like JFrame something) when running.

Can someone help me with these easy things? I really want some simple and effective ways.

Not sure about 3 but in 2
 
First off this is all info from alice 2, as i deleted 3 about 3 months ago i kinda forgot what was different...

1. You can make a global variable, click on world > click create new variable > select what type you want > click done
2. There is arrow keys beneath the world view use those, then next to it you can move objects with more settings
3. This one is hard, it takes alot of work on alice to make this work using many different methods/functions it can be done, i suggest trying this when you get more familiar with alice
4. Click on an object > click the + on textures > click import texture map > choose what texture you want > add the texture by clicking the texture map options then choosing the map you want.
5. Not sure on this one, never really tried, i would assume you need to know jython for this, still i have no idea on this one.

Not sure if this will help but here it is anyway...

Thanks a lot for your info of first 4. Actually I am kind of interested in jython. Is this a really awesome tool for game making or a language for easy programming? Also I am wondering if you know how to make simple games (or like ALICE) by using JAVA, maybe you can give me some URL for tutorials, I suppose? Or do you know any other better languages or ways for game making? REALLY Looking forward to replies:D

Im not that good :(
 
I wish I could, but unfortuantly im just learning stuff like java...

Yo can optimize your game by this Stuff + Other Stuff + Different Other Stuff = Things :D

Yes :)
 
Yes you can :)

Congratulation. It is my dream to make a strategy game,

RavenOfCode 10-16-2014 06:44 AM

Dreams come true :)
 
That's not that hard, but does require effort, I found it fun and enjoyable... I suggest get a class for alice. Then just keep playing around with it. This is what I did and ive made a lot of stuff.

Alice IS awesome, but it has limitations. Worst being the lack of collision detection. :( Plus, it takes a long time to load if you have too many objects in your world... Besides those, however, there are some pretty incredible things that you can build with a little time and imagination! Good luck to your future programming!!

In general I consider that in game everything rests on tactics.:p
