How easily could such a java game be created?
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I am an administrator for a competition called 8brcam. It has been running since 2005. The game we play is not owned by us, but rather, is the Yahoo! Pool game. Tonight, Yahoo! announced that they are going to be deleting this game and adding a newer one with a lot of flair but no substance. For videos displaying how competitive our competition has been on Yahoo! Pool, you can check out this channel: 8brcam Youtube.
For those of us who have been playing this game and making great friends for 10 years, this news is a bit hard to stomach. We just want to be able to continue to compete in 8brcam. So, I'm here to ask... how realistic is it, and how much is it likely to cost to develop a good multiplayer billiards game with a lobby and multiple tables and such. Really, we would want it to be as close to the Yahoo Pool game in the videos as possible.
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
