Chuckie Egg J2ME
J2ME MIDP2.0

Introduction

Welcome to the J2ME GPL implementation of the famous game Chuckie Egg. This version is written in Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) and uses MIDP2. It was originally written using the Nokia simulator and without a compatible phone, but it is fairly playable in software.

This project was developed by a group of students as a school assignment. Unfortunately none of us have the time to continue working on the project so it has been orphaned. Anyone who wants to work on the project can mail us. Continue to send bugs to here though, and one of us will hopefully fix/apply them. [top]

Installation

  1. Downloading

    Get the source tar-ball from here and the graphics tar-ball from here.

    Get the J2ME Wireless Toolkit and the Nokia Series 60 SDK (or later) from Nokia Forum.

    The J2ME Wireless Toolkit contains everything you need to develop MIDP applications. The SDK contains a Nokia concept emulator for the Series 60 UI category, Java class libraries, APIs (including Nokia UI API) and documentation.

    To use a specific Nokia device, have its lib/classes.zip under your CLASSPATH.

    Also, to have the simulator available on the wireless toolkit you will need to copy the files to PATH_TO_J2ME/wtklib/devices.

    If you want a cutting edge version, get the latest source, see Git. If you find a bug your help would be appreciated.

  2. Unpack the archives

    Go to the wireless toolkit projects directory and unpack using
    $ tar -xfv chuckie_egg_j2me-0.1-src.tar

  3. Compile the program
    % javac *.java 
    
  4. Run/Test the program

    (Open the Wireless Toolkit)
    (Load and Run the Project)
    
    Enjoy yourself immensely!
