I am in the process of making a Java Applet Game ..
My problem is that I am not able to understand how to implement a Menu System for a Java Game.
I want an Animated Background for my Menu Page with all the buttons and all. And when the player hits the "Play" button the main game loop starts ...
But I am getting confused that since an Applet has just one run() function for a thread how can I use it both for animations for my Menu System and also for the Main Game ?
I know it sounds a bit confusing .. So all i want to know is how do we implement a Menu System in a game ? (specially one in which you need animated backgrounds and buttons)
Thanks a lot
