Java games rock!


« Posted 2005-04-22 19:06:07 »

Hi guys, I'm pretty new to programming, but I really want to make a game. I know this is a really easy question, but it is late, and I don't want to spend the next couple of hours doing something wrong. I want to move an object around with the keyboard, is this the best way of doing it? And how do I implements double buffering to avoid flicker?

Its probably fine here,

If you replace your repaint() with a repaint(0) things would work better. repaint() just schedules a repaint of the screen but that happens on a different thread at some point in the future. repaint(0) requests a repaint() within 0 milliseconds.

While this will probably work you'd be better to be using buffer strategies. At the risk of tooting my own horn, this tutorial might help:
