LibGDX: Noiz2-gdx Vector Shoot Em Up

I have been noticing that there are quite a few instances of my original port of Kento Chos esoteric shooter – Noiz2 available. It has made it’s way across the internet on various app stores mostly unchanged which is fine by me. A few people have added adverts. Good luck to them. Anyway, just to […]

Java: Standard RSS and UK Highways Agency RSS Pull parsers on github

I have been looking at GWT again recently and was considering trying to write a traffic application again. I wanted to generate some traffic incident data so I dug around into some old code which I had knocking around which parsed UK Highways Agency incident RSS. The parser is a pull-parser. Pull parsers are fast […]

LibGDX: Demos on Github

I have made a start on fully Mavenizing my LibGDX demos and placed them up on Github. The good news is that the core netthreads-libgdx library and the demos have been converted to use the latest version of LibGDX (0.9.9 at the time of writing). Taking the latest build from the LibGDX repo should mean […]

JavaFX: Java OSC library and JavaFX-based OSC Router

As part of my Tonome LibGDX project I decided to convert the LibGDX application to use OSC messages instead of triggering samples internally to the application. The application could broadcast OSC note on and off messages to a Puredata instance and map that down to MIDI with a Puredata script. The first part of that […]

JavaFX: Mavenize-FX – GitHub

The mavenize-fx project is now up on GitHub. This will be the new home for the project. I have left the google code site up to host executables only. You can download an executable JAR file from here. I have used the 32 bit JDK so I think it should run on any x86 based […]

JavaFX: Mavenize-FX

As part of learning JavaFX I decided to put a nice UI onto my existing ‘mavenize’ tool. This is currently a command line tool and does what it says in tin, so to speak. To find out more about this you can read the original post here. I modified the original component to allow a […]

JavaFX: Pivot and JavaFX

I have been trying out both Pivot and JavaFX as means to write a user interface for my proposed tool to route OSC messages to Midi (see previous post). Rather than jump straight in with something which needs lots of features I decided to try something simple. My mavenize tool needs a front end so […]

LibGDX:Audio – Tonome OSC version

Ah sweet synthesized music! Here is a screenshot of my Tonome LibGDX application sending OSC Bundle messages to a instance of pure data. The pure data instance is broadcasting the OSC Bundle contents as Midi note out messages to a bank of Crystal synths running inside Podium. Each VST synth instance has been assigned a […]

LIBGDX – Demos Update to 0.9.6

I have finally updated all the LibGDX demos to the latest release version of LibGDX as of today (0.9.6). Here are the links Tonome – A tonematrix style sample player here. Box2D with Scene2D – Bumpers demo here. Box2D with Scene2D – Simple fixture demo here. Game Test – Simple shoot-em-up with settings panel and […]


Whilst this component hasn’t exactly set the internets on fire can I give another shout out for my ‘mavenize‘ tool. This is a command line tool for ‘mavenizing’ java projects. I have found myself using this a fair bit when I am looking to bring older components into a existing maven java project and it […]
