Hello experts :-)

I have an idea for a mmorpg game.

I want to create engine (similiar to the one from Diablo) for it and am thinking which programming language I should use.

I know that C++ is the most obvious choice but I would like my game to work fine both on Windows and Linux.

I read a lot about how great java is but haven't found even ONE example of game written in Java which would be even close to Diablo.

Do u know any game with nice graphics written in Java?
Is it possible?

Thank u very much

It is definitely possible to create a diablo-like game in java, but you will have to contend with java's performance issues (it's big, bloated and runs slower than a C++ equivalent). Java aside, it's still possible to make the game work for both linux and windows using C++ if you have the right engine, tools and coding methods :)
