Having the save functionality will be fun for normal use.
I'm contemplating using one of my empty arcade cabinets to stick winxp on and have it boot to this minicraft tool... heck an 8-way joystick and 2 button switches and that's all i need to play lol... Minicraft, the arcade game... ftw?
Edit: A top 10 score list would be nice, I don't care whether it saves the list or not.. arcade machines were meant to stay on 24/h
Hm, Quick Question. Should I program it to save the UnderGround World and the Skyworld Too?
Because I'm not a good Java Programmer (I'm a C# Developer), It would require multiple files to be saved; I don't want to mess with splitting the files, because I'm still a noob. (Splitting means I could put [break] in the file, and it would split the file into a string of three sections, because I would put two; and from there it would it import it as a Level Byte into the game.)
I'll try it today. I hope it'll work. I don't have JDK installed and I've tried using alternatives. But I'm going to do it right later; and compile it the right way.
This is awesome man! Thanks soo much for adding this and can't wait to see a version with saves. I would prefer (not rushing you, just an idea) if you released the version that allows you to save the main world so I can put my stuff in the chest atleast :tongue.gif: Anyways thanks a lot for doing this!
Although I do like the single launcher/game and your screenshot implementation and I really hope there will be a save feature for Minicraft.
Thanks for creating actual separate launcher to run it, and I wish there'll be a way to save and load maps ^.^
I think the save should include all the worlds including the items in the chest and inventory. Maybe you could look into the Minecraft save system for insights/help in splitting files or how to save it? Also you should probly use the Java SDK for best results..
I found something wrong: The name of the program for the window title should be: By "Markus Persson", not "Marcus Perrson". (Remember he's Swedish, and the last name is "son of Pers or Per", not Perr). <- just some trivia that I thought I'd like to share.
Anyways, the launcher is working great and it's nice to have this individual game/launcher with extra features. Thanks again for this nice program/implementation!
Alright! Updates will happen today; Including updates of my Text. I have finally learned how to code in Java, and I have every intent today to make the Save Games work! (If I can figure out how to use the Input. I think I'll use 'S' for save and 'L' for load)
Because I am a Noob at Java, It will only be one Save File; which you can switch out yourself.
Actually I don't think I can. I need an experienced Java Developer. I know what needs to be done. There is a Level Byte File in 'Level' of Minicraft. I need it to be exported, and if it exists, Imported.
