Hello GMC

FrozenNova is a GMK to Java converter i have been working on for the last 2 weeks. I have become quite busy with school recently so i have decided to release this so others can extend on it. I might pick it up again at some point or even rewrite it but currently its not in development. You will need the Java Development Kit for this to work as well as a system variable pointing to the JDK so that it runs from the CMD. Does also include the Flash library but was never implemented.

To make it even easier there is just one script that handles the conversion of GML to Java, the rest doesn't need to be modified to add more funtions.

Working
- Single Image Sprites
- Animated Sprites
- Simple Drawing commands
- Simple Keyboard support
- Room Size and Background colour
- Few Maths commands (irandom, irandomrange, Mod, Cos/Sin/Tan)
- Create, Step and Draw Events
** Please see the example for more information

Things that need to be added/fixed
- Room Captions
- Multiple Rooms
- Collisions
- Mouse Support
- Sound
- Backgrounds
- LAYERS (Depth)
- Font Fix

Download - Including Source
Box.net

Unfortanatly version 2 was lost when my laptop was sent into Toshiba (Why they needed to reformat when they were replacing the fan I will never know :confused: )

Anyway, Since GM:HTML5 has come out I have stopped developing FrozenNova. I searched my external HD and found a more updated version then the one posted here with backgrounds, applet support, a plugin system and a general clean up (Link).

IF I was to start development again I would need help as the version above is ready to go, It just needs plugins to be written for each GM command (The base is mostly finished)

If someone PM's me and is willing to help I will consider restarting the project :tongue:


Thanks

For a long time it puzzled me how something so expensive, so leading edge, could be so useless, and then it occurred to me that a computer is a stupid machine with the ability to do incredibly smart things, while computer programmers are smart people with the ability to do incredibly stupid things. They are, in short, a dangerously perfect match. ~ Bill Bryson

Thanks for the feedback :)
The java engine I used supports J2ME and Android, I never implemented J2ME but i did do a test with Android. I decided not to add it to this release as there is alot of manual work you have to do as well. Once i get the Android script fixed and working like it should i will add it to the next release.

I have mouse support working sort of working on my current build. Clicking on an object sometimes doesn't work. Many things still to fix but will be in next version. :)

May I crush your dreams now? Thank you.

There is no real point in developing GameMaker-Java converter as of today.
Why? See below:
  • It'll take pretty long.
    Game Maker has over 1200 functions (excluding the undocumented ones).
    Even if we shall assume that you will be making one function per 10 minutes (which is already impossible, considering the fact that you need to check if they work as intended), it'll take you 12000 minutes = 200 hours = 8.3 days of straight work. And you do not come from school\college\(insert a place where you spend half of day), sit down, and work only on your grand project till you fall asleep. Oh, yes, there is also life to live too.
  • You are extremely likely to give up.
    As you may know or not, you are far not first person to attempt on making a GameMaker-Java converter. All of ones do the same mistakes. They start from something basic (i.e. all GameMaker drawing operations are extremely easy to do in nearly any language with canvas-styled drawing support) and later crash into a wall of something harder.
    Some of these walls:
    • Collisions. Apart from fact that you need to do box, ellipse, and pixel mask collisions (which need to work rather fast by the way), there is such feature as rotation and scaling. Rotated & scaled pixel mask is not a rare thing in GameMaker games. And don't forget that it must function same as in GameMaker, or your converter will only grant free frustration to people. They might even blame you for doing a bad job later.
    • Data structures and path finding. While first will just take you long time to do correctly (hint: all GameMaker ds_ functions support storing strings and numbers in the same structure, and even sorting one), second is rather complicated in the context of existing pixel-perfect collision engine.
    • execute_string, events, and other dynamic behaviour modifications. I believe you do not need additional information about these.
    • Specifics of GM. Many things don't work exactly like you could expect them to work (i.e. round() function), and GameMaker games rely on that way. Do something incorrectly - and converted games will not work properly.
  • You will get 'pushed out' YoYoGames later anyway.
    As many know, YoYoGames are developing a 'automatic' HTML5 exporter for GameMaker, which is warranted to work better and faster than something you'll be able to make in next ~3-4 years.
    GameMakerStudio is coming up later, but shall shatter point of making a Android exporter.
What you could do instead:
  • GM-Java ME converter
    Since YoYoGames is unlikely to be ever interested in porting games to non-Apple cellphones, this may make sense.
    Of course it'll be much harder to implement a fast & properly working engine in restricted micro edition, but at least you won't waste your time as much this way.
  • Your very own framework (or even IDE)
    Frameworks are fun to do, exclude the possibility of getting into a trouble with original developers, and increase your overall level of awesomeness. See FlashPunk for reference.
  • Game. Incredibly, in our age of silly technologies, games are still a thing to play. Especially the good ones, because there are not many of these coming up.
I apologise if this post looks messed up a bit. I had to leave while half-way done with it.

This can be very useful. But its usefulness will be short lived as the upcoming GMStudio will allow you to export to: HTML5, iPhone, iPad and many other devices.
It would be nice but I doubt this will ever get finished.

If you type "java" into the command prompt do you get "'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file."?
If so you are getting this because you don't have java installed or you don't have a system variable set up pointing to java.

To set up a variable...
Right click on Computer/My Computer in the start menu and select properties.
Click Sdvanced System Settings
In the Window that opens, goto the Advanced tab
Click the Environment Variables
Under System Variables find one called "path" (If its not there create it)
Set the variable as the directory of you JDK setup. For example for me its "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\bin"
If there is already something in the variable add a semi colon. For example "C:\Windows\SysWOW64;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\bin"

It is a very interesting thing.
People say that they can't afford $100, but how are they going to afford licences in according stores?
iOS publishing costs $100 per year.
PSP publishing costs even more (also is hard to get to, as YYG stated in glog post).

Additionally... HTML5-publishing version of GM will likely be a separate product and cost less than that.

Its a good point. PSP and iOS publishing are out of most members price range. I have an Apple Developer account so i am fine in that department, but most people on here won't pay the $125NZD per year. I almost question why Yoyogames even are doing PSP and iOS publishing when it will won't be used. Also Apple added to their EULA that all Games/Programs must be made in an approved SDK, i highly doubt that Game Maker is approved.

The reason you get this error is because GMKSplit has not created the folder /"Projectname". Try extracting the GMK manually and see what you get.
java -jar Data\gmksplit.jar "Example.gmk" "Temp"
pause
Save this as Extract.bat and place it in the root directory of FrozenNova, and post the output of the CMD window.

I got the following output
C:\Users\Neiko Ambrose\Desktop\FrozenNova Alpha 1>java -jar Data\gmksplit.jar "Example.gmk" "Temp"

This version is now obsolete anyway. Alpha 2 includes a plugin system which make adding other functions much easier, an example plugin set is included which adds support for Max WinAPI 2. Alpha 2 has over 170 functions included including some support for 39dll. Not quite sure when i will release but keep an eye out for the new version.

Currently i am having problems with 39dll commands, Games don't currently connect with each other unless over LAN or on the same computer. Once this problem is fixed i plan to add sound support (not quite sure how i'm going to do this as JGame only supports .wav) then i will release =)

I was thinking about this the other day. The only plus i can see LWJGL giving is that it supports 3D. Not many 3D games are sucessful anyway =P. Its something to keep in mind, maybe the final version will have an option between JGame and LWJGL.

Currently you can open and modify gmk and gm81 files. This is a step towards FrozenNova being a seperate program. I am also studying for NCEA exams, so development is slow but expect a release in the next 2 weeks :biggrin:

For a long time it puzzled me how something so expensive, so leading edge, could be so useless, and then it occurred to me that a computer is a stupid machine with the ability to do incredibly smart things, while computer programmers are smart people with the ability to do incredibly stupid things. They are, in short, a dangerously perfect match. ~ Bill Bryson

Hello!
I now find this converter program, but when I try to load into GM, it write the following message: "Cannot find extension package: gmxml".
And when I running FrozenNova Alpha 1.exe, it write out:
"Error: Failed to extract the GMK file!
Something has gone wrong with GMKSplit. Redownloading may fix this error."
What is wrong?

To load the GMK you are going to need the GMXML extension. This can be found below.
http://gmc.yoyogames...howtopic=462882

To fix the "Failed to extract the GMK file" error, you need to either install the JDK (Java Development Kit) or have a System Variable pointing to it.
Link for the JDK: http://www.oracle.co...oads/index.html

To set up a variable.
Right click on Computer/My Computer in the start menu and select properties.
Click Advanced System Settings
In the Window that opens, goto the Advanced tab
Click the Environment Variables
Under System Variables find one called "path" (If its not there create it)
Set the variable as the directory of you JDK setup. For example for me its "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\bin"
If there is already something in the variable add a semi colon. For example "C:\Windows\SysWOW64;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\bin"

Thank you, Proud Kiwi, but...
I have download and install gmXML and jdk-7u2-windows-i586, but when I running FN Alpha 2, it show the following error message:

ERROR in
action number 1
of Create Event
for object Control:

Error in code at line 150:
if (string_pos(javadirectory,pathvar) > 0)
^
at position 17: Unknown variable javadirectory


In that code are these lines:

//Detect JDK Version
registry_set_root(1)
if (registry_exists_ext("\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.6","JavaHome"))
{

(...)

Instead of this:
"\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.6"

I have put the following path:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_02\bin
(or without "\bin")

Is this not what I need?

"\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.6" is a path in the registry not a directory path.

Try changing 1.6 to 1.7. When I wrote that code the JDK was only at version 6. If that still doesn't work just ignore the error, a game will still compile if you ignore the message.

Please note that Frozen Nova is no longer in development, so the version that you have won't be updated.

So, that's the code of generated(in Output directory), JGameCopy.bat:
"C:\Documents and Settings\Cirilli\Documenti\Download\Build(1-6-11)source\Data\xcopy.exe" "C:\Documents and Settings\Cirilli\Documenti\Download\Build(1-6-11)source\Data\jgame" "C:\Documents and Settings\Cirilli\Documenti\Download\Build(1-6-11)source\Output\jgame" /E

I don't understand what's the matter of that bat file, if the scope is (as xcopy suggests) to copy the Data\jgame directory in the Output directory, it fails, xcopy is an internal dos command so:

xcopy "C:\Documents and Settings\Cirilli\Documenti\Download\Build(1-6-11)source\Data\jgame" "C:\Documents and Settings\Cirilli\Documenti\Download\Build(1-6-11)source\Output\jgame" /E

that's the right batch command, xcopy source destination
I'm not saying, cause that, my FrozenNova not works, but i'm starting to believe it. Best Regards.

I've got a solution to your problems! Buy GM:studio. Seriously the OP said it was unfinished and obsolete, the only option you have is to put your hands into your wallets and make a good investment.

Or you could just not waste spend your money and learn C++! :3

I also heard someone had a desktop jar running on Android and frozen nova makes desktop jar files

soo Frozen Nova Could become a replacement for Game-Maker:Studio

its natural that Jars can run on android.

Android has some roots in Java and Linux
