No Java game developers on this forum...? There were a lot discussions a few years ago. I thought with the Android OS using Java there would be more, but no. I'm not sure what everyone is doing. Hopefully they are too busy making cool games?

Need some guidance The Visual Editor plugin for Eclipse died a while ago, but it is limping along. I haven't looked at it in a while. When it died, I switched to using MigLayout for my GUIs and I've been using it for years now. Check it out: MigLayout

ArrayList and ConcurrentModificationException Well I'm glad I asked, because I had no idea iterator had a remove. I also like the idea of coping the elements that don't need to be removed and then swapping lists. Good stuff. Thanks guys!
