Hello,

What kind of game? Do you need OpenGL?

"Rhinehart",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

Hi Rhine,
I dont have any idea regarding openGL. It will bw something like a pinball game.

My apologies, new guy and all that.. fixed.

Libs like J0GL, LWJGL, and Java3D use OpenGL for hardware acceleration which imho is the way to go if you want performance.

Since you're working on a pin-ball game I'd gather you'll need some physics libs -- there's a Java ODE binding available.

My current favorite opensourced Java engine is jME -- they have a physics engine as well.
