JavaFX and Lars Ulrich of Metallica!

After finally appreciating JavaFX, and now maybe I'll say that JavaFX is damn cool because of this app I just found.

It's a simple JavaFX application, but for Metallica a fan and a Java programmer, this is awesome, haha!

Way better than Winamp (maybe but it's FOSS)

A new player that I use. Better than teenspirit/jaangle and (maybe) way better than Winamp :D
The player is called [b]aTunes[/b].
Website: [link][/link]

Quick Overview:
1. Open Source (GNU General Public License).
2. Cross-Platform (Written in Java, my lang of choice :D).
3. support (MAL for music fans).
4. Built-in lyrics viewer and album-cover downloader.

Written in Java, it also uses Substance, an open-source super cool Look and Feel Java which I used before :D

After I fairly got to understand how pulpcore works, I added my very first AI.

You can play the game here

Cool Open Source Java Games!

my google searching effort for cool Java open source game stuff has paid off. Very cool enough that I'd make a posting for it here.

First off Pulpcore

This demo says(IMO), "Java Applets can crush Flash games now". Really cool demo, looks like Doom for kids!

Next off is, Robocode,

A game for programmers where you create a Java code for a robot to battle! nice! Every thing is up and running without any pain in setting up, they got good docs too. Here's a screenshot.

The best JavaME article out there

I finally got our thesis prototype working because of this article. Although I didn't read it haha because I skipped and jumped into the demo code. The code is very clean and nicely done! I spent two sleepless nights trying to make video recording using the WMA API and it's working, very fullfilling!
My biggest weapon I forged from this experience is the use of catching RuntimeExceptions. Really helped in my bug catching missions~

COol Mp3 tag editors

Finally back to start posting again here. I finally found some very good mp3 tag other than gmusicbrowser(Linux).
TagScanner is better, at least it's ui is not a hogger as it looks.
