Open Source Game Launcher
If you were a part of game launcher development using any of these IDEs then you are probably a warrior. Most game launcher developments that existed with Java as the backbone were open-source projects. They had to be open-source game launchers to enable other developers to jump on-board and help develop it, as it would prove cumbersome and arduous for those who did it alone.
It’s fast, it’s efficient and you can have your own custom made game launcher designed and fully functional within minutes, literally.
Java Garbage Collection
Good, solid garbage routines and garbage collection can ensure your app or in this instance, game launcher app, will run as smooth as possible. Java is well-known for having a solid runtime but the garbage collection can sometimes cause latency issues, where you can visually see and feel lag within your app.
For this has now solidified the use of Java as a decent language to use for desktop application development, and is where the Game Launcher Creator jumps in to allow you to visually design, develop and compile your own game launchers with just the click of a few buttons.
If you’re intending on developing a game updater or game patcher with Java then you might be on the right track, but again, GLC provides all of this functionality without you writing a single line of code! You simply and literally just click a button, configure the settings and before you know it, you have a full working game updater to accompany your game.
