1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Using less timers in a game on: 2013-05-18 18:13:47
It doesn't really lag that much in my game but I know that I could reduce alot of lag in my game by having less timers running. The game have multiple timers because it have one timer that updates everything like the players location and alla the obstacles then I have other timers that I use to remove the power ups that you could get, for example I have one timer that have it's initial delay set to 5000 and when it is runned one time (it will only run one time) it will remove a specific power up and the I have another timer that have it's initial delay set to 20 000. How would I keep the different delay of each timer but still only using one por at least fever than I use now?    
2  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Checking collision between a Shap and a Rectangle on: 2013-05-18 12:33:06
In my game the player uses a Rectangle for his bounding box, he can do this because I only need to rotate the player image and not the acctual rectangle but for a eletric beam that one of the bosses have I need to use a Shape because I need to rotate the acctual bounding box and not only the image. The problem is that because I have one Rectangle and one Shape I can't use rectangle.intersect(shape) nor rectangle.intersect((Rectangle)shape), I also can't use the Shapes getBounds() method because that woud defeat the purpose of using a Shape so how would I be able to check the collision between the rectangle and the shape? or is there a way that I can rotate a rectangle on instead of a shape (I use the createTransformedShape instance of an AffineTransform to rotate the shape )?
