    That' a big question. Can you be more specific? What have you done so far and where are you having problems?

    help with making a compiler
    That sounds like a big project. What language is the compiler for?
    i need help with the client to run the game
    There are lots of samples of client code here on the forum. They are usually paired with server code.

    What is the status of your project? What does "BUMP" mean?
    You need to ask some specific questions.

    What do you mean by "compiler"? The javac program is a compiler.
    Please explain what kind of compiler you need?

    i have got the coding for a space invaders game and i need the compiler to convert the graphics and change the original ship to a heart that pumps blood to kill the aliens and then s i can edit the code correctly. i was wondering how i would make the compiler do this.

    also i am not using any sort of program to code the game i am just using notepad++ for the structure of the game

    Do you have a definition for the language of the source file your compiler will read and a definition for the format of the output file the compiler will create?

    There are no requirements for what kind of editor is used to create a java source file. notepad should be ok.

    If the source file is java, then what problems are you having using the javac compiler?
    If you are getting errors, copy the full text of the error messages and post it here.

    need to integrate the two
    Are you asking how to display an image in the GUI of a java program?

    The javac program is part of the JDK that is a free download from the Oracle site.

    how to display the image in the GUI
    You will have to learn how to write java code to do that.
    Start with the tutorial:
    Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing (The Java™ Tutorials)
