hehe a complete rewrite of OP2 in java? y not?
just make sure the java and OP2 is completely compatible (i mean... like OP2 can join into a game hosted in java client)
Great news for OP2 fans... OP3 in progress.

That'd be awesome!! lol. It'd be hard to interface the original w/ yours, but do what you want.  It'd be a fun alternative for those of us who can't play OP2 (original) multiplayer

Java! Omg, that's sick! But kinda funny. Well best of luck with it. If you ever get anywhere on it, i can probably help (by providing info) with interfacing it to the original. I guess I wouldn't mind playing OP2 on a unix based machine but I'm not so sure I want to do it with Java (read: my computer is too slow).

hmm. good luck...... however, wouldn't it be easier to write it in another cross platform language, like Python?

(and yet another option is to write cross platform code using C++, and a cross platform graphics engine (eg. X Window System, wxWindows, SDL, ...) The only changes you'd have to make for each platform is how to compile on that given platform, eg. c++ compiler on unix = g++, c++ on windows = cl.exe)
