I've been wanting to look into creating a small game with an isometric view for some time. I'm having difficulty, however, finding any good docs on ways to do this. I'm not overly concerned with whether or not I find information in java or some other language but I need a general direction.

Anyone have any tips?

Thanks.

I don't have a direct answer for your question, but I think that if you asked your question on http://cboard.cprogramming.com someone there could help you out.
AND I found this tutorial that I think is supposed to be pretty good. They talk a little about isometric view, and basically you just make a tile-based game that looks isometric. So you may need to go through a tutorial on tile-based games, and learn how to create an isometric view of tiles, which I believe is explained in this tutorial, or it should at least be a start.
Also this forum might be some help... http://www.inet2inet.com/inetforums/index.php?showforum=24

If I remember rightly Killer Game Programming in Java has an isometric game section, and diffently has a section on tile based games.

I got bored of the guys style so didnt end up reading much of the book, and i got side tracked with my poker game.

I had buy a book named Isometric Game Programming with DirectX from amazon
I think you can read it.
Even not java.but the book is very detail
It can be a good reference.
