Cool, Haven't tried to TextureIO class before! all that code I did for nothing
Anyway, I put a copy of the code up on my site. I can setup a webstart to runit if that helps anyone?http://www.whitehexagon.com/Brix.java
Apologies but the code is a mess. It's a cut and paste job from many parts of the engine, so I hope it makes sense. It's normally full screen, but that code isn't the most reliable to I just maxed it to 1280 by 1024 for now.
There's a really exciting texture there in case you dont find a nicer one to use http://www.whitehexagon.com/studs256256.png
This is the code I tried that was only hitting around 30fps, and stil does... seems strange considering Spasi's results. I guess I'm doing something silly here, but can't spot what.
