Hello JGO Pointing
Today I've been constructing a Game Loop so that I can calculate some statistics of it and such Cool

The Game Loop is a thread.

Game run method layout:
public void run() {
   /* Initialize Starting Times */
   while (!isDestroyed()) {
      /* Update Game Logic */
      /* Render */
      /* Send the thread to sleep ^_^, no calculations for it at the moment */
      sleep(10L, true);
      /* Calculate some statistics */

My Question is:
Where in my game thread would I call the 'updateFPS()' method?
Before sleeping?, before painting?, after painting?
I've never known this lol, and now that I'm constructing a good game thread I'd like to ^__^.

Any feedback would be helpful thanks Cheesy

Generally at the end of the loop, because it makes more sense. If you do everything, calculate the FPS, and do everything again, and calculate it again, it will keep a hopefully constant rate. Also, you would want to do it at the end because you'll know how many frames of all the updating and rendering in a second.
