I have been inspired to write a 2D game by the JGO competition  Grin

I don't know any 2D API very well, Java2D included.
Having heard a lot of talk about Slick I gave it a try and I'm very impressed. But I'd prefer to avoid a security popup.

What's the best choice for 2D without a popup? And how soon am I likely to run into performance problems?
(apologies for the fairly tired question but I gather old threads might not be relevant to newer Java versions)

I could be wrong here but I think the only choice without a security popup is Java2D in one fashion or another. You could try PulpCore to get the job done, I hear (and see) good things from it.

Thanks, that's the way it seemed.
It's strange though - seems like a lot of reinventing the wheel. Or is Java2D quite complete in itself?

I've had a look at pulpcore and the demos are nice and polished - but the configuration is a bit messy and it seems sections of the API are undocumented and not covered by examples.
I'll persevere a bit though as it could be worth the effort.
