Java games rock!

« Posted 2003-01-10 05:34:33 »

Hi all,

I have been programming java for about a year now and i have a fairly good understanding. But when it comes to RPG games i am so lost.

Really the main question i need to ask is how do i make the "background move". Like in all the other RPG games, like i am walking and the back ground scrolls. Do i need to first create a massive image. And what gui would i use. I am so lost any help would be great.

I cant wait for ur reply.

Even a tutorial would be really helpful.

Sounds like you could use a library called 'Planetation' at

Never tried it myself, but I think that's what you need.
