I am rather new to java, just a 10th grader in my schools Programming II class. I recently took up the challenge of creating the old school Pong game. I have the game all working and stuff, to were it runs and you can play. However, I have been trying to build upon that. I want there to be a main "Title screen" with a button that changes the image of the background to the main game background and also starting my game thread. I have all these in seperate classes, and I can't seem to figure out how when the area of the button is clicked, to change the image and start the game. I've been looking around for hours and still I am clueless. If someone could help, I'd much appreciate it.
