I am developing a WW2 Hexagon shaped Strategy Game using java (1.402b06) which currently looks like this ->http://web.telia.com/~u26115661/screenshot.jpg
I use Swing and have problems with performance and graphic flashing. The performance problems is that the JScrolPane is slow and varying when it scrolls the map. The graphics flickering is that sometimes the contents of one Panel flashes by in the wrong Panel seemingly a problem with repainting several Panels simultaneously.
If I use a newer JVM, will it solve any of the problems?
