First post. Learned a heck of a lot from you guys- thanks.
Question- while testing this game loop, I notice that my fps seem to be limited to the refresh rate of the screen mode I switch into. Is this a Window's "feature"?
Edit: Hmm- I just found an answer: http://www.xp-refresh.net/
Also- I understand what vertical synch is all about, but I don't yet see how to "do it" with pure Java. (I do see how to do it via LWJGL- very nice btw). I currently get big time flashing- which is what I'd expect if my buffer.show() isn't synched with monitor's vsynch and their respective rates aren't perfectly in synch. But I'm a big time newb- maybe I'm missing something.
Could someone give me some pointers, advice, links?
Thanks a lot!
