starting from a new isn’t easy – but luckily there are tutorials. For the jMonkey Engine a good start might be the Flag Rush – Tutorials.
I tried the first two chapters and have to say: jME ist fun! The tutorials are about setting up your first game application and drawing a simple object rendered with a texture. The goal of the whole flag rush series is to create a small game in which you will control a motorcyle and collect random flags placed in the digital terrain.
So I head over to part three and wish you fun trying too 😉
