Java UIs are not inherently any bigger than Windows ones though, the same UI would have the same size on Windows too. Admittedly it currently is a bit larger than I would want it to be, but it fits in 1920x1080 without too much hassle. I can also still squeeze out some space by not having everything align for symmetry reasons (will probably have to change that a bit for the larger screens).

Worst case the screens get scrollbars or are broken up into more than one, e.g. have a popup for the selection parameters and result list and only once you have selected an item, go back to the previous screen.

As to why Java, because I know it better than C# and I am certainly not going to use any other than those two. As Java also comes with a DB built in, that was another point in its favor.

I wonder if the devs will stop converting b24 transfer files into b26 ones now... (thats why they changed it, after all)
I highly doubt it

Quote:
I'm guessing this won't get released?
I am going back and forth on that, as i cannot read B26, it currently would mostly be for the crafting part, which I do not really want to be the primary feature

Quote:
edit: wait this can't read B26 format -- correct?
not yet, that is a matter of time, not of principle, might take a while though (ie after the official release)

Nah, the devs are cool with that, just look at the trade and savegame threads

I think some people did some edits and then reported bugs?

I assume this is more to not have issues from failed hacks during beta testing.

If they were not, then why would they offer to help me with the format once the game is released ?

how come? changing it to windows look is one line of code, it is basically free. do you think swing looks better than the windows UI, on windows? in that case, go ahead, otherwise the cost of changing is small (maybe you'd have to move elements a few pixels)

I think the opposite is mostly true(i.e. windows ui elements are bigger than swing) I think are almost the double the height. but the point is, it looks nicer since it is the same theme with rest of the OS

as for the ui, it doesn't have to be this big. item information could be tooltip, search results can be displayed in the same way as your inventory etc., but the worst case its just a fullscreen app and I can live with that, didnt mean this as a big thing ^_^

ah, that is what you meant, yeah, I might do that. The layout is dynamic anyway, so there is nothing I have to layout differently either way

might as well make it configurable

it is a little bigger than I wanted, so the buttons might become a toolbar etc. All of that is simple anyways.

Search results are a list already (a table). the table takes up as much space as there is available, so as far as size is concerned it is the UI element I have to worry about the least

Shalie, Stormcaller, and Mamba,

How do y'all mofos have the picture icons? I'm willing to bet you didn't screen cap everything, but instead figured out how to extract .tex files. Would you mind sharing that information (or the icons) with me, a person learning how to program, so I can use them to make a fancy webpage?

HOLY SHIT YOU'RE DOING THIS IN JAVA?!?!

Good job.

Edit: Eww, Card Layout. I don't know why people like it so much other than convenience...never did like it relative to other alternatives. Yes, I can nitpick all day.

Turns out .tex files are basically .dds files, as revealed in an earlier thread:
