The old style game framework is a tool for developing games in Java. The premise behind this is to put together all the common things we do for all of our games, so we don't have to recode it every time we create a new game.
Game Designer is a tool for building the common element of the Old Style Game Framework and generating an XML file. The resulting XML file can be converted into the game objects by using the GameDoc code. The Game Designer and GameDocs are not required to create games with the Old Style Game Framework.
The Old Style Framework JavaDoc API documents are available online:
