    A useful game making tool for us Java developers. I don't know if it's possible to port, but if it is I would love to see it happen.

    well someone should put it on the port request list on the wiki. And it is open source so I don't see way not?


    I am currently learning Java at my school so I would love to see JMonkey on the Pandora :)

    here is the offical website from what I know


    http://jmonkeyengine.org/


    and here is the Wikipedia artical


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JMonkey_Engine


    From what I know it is a Game Engine made in Java, it is open source and stuff ^_^ I just found out about it when looking up what a Game Engine is. (I am still learning)

    Oh, it is a 3D engine. Someone with a lot of knowledge about java would have to have a look here.

    Did a little checking. It's LWJGL based too, so we'd need that first.

    There are a few backends(http://jmonkeyengine...r/Renderer.html), with the most used being LWJGL(not gl1). Due to our Pandora's environment and the fact other games are waiting on LWJGL, that should be the focus of a port instead of trying to adapt the OGLESShaderRenderer, but maybe I'm wrong.


    If this gets ported, the plus side is my game engine I'm writing based off jME3 will be able to be used on the Pandora.


    EDIT:interesting
