    Default Problems With Image Loading and Extended Objects

    I've been having a bit of trouble with drawing graphics for an object that extends another object. For whatever reason, the graphics are being shown for the original object, instead of being overwritten in the new object.

    Original Object:
    package gravitygamesinteractive.scorpioengine.main;
     
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.Component;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import java.awt.Rectangle;
     
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
     
    public class Immobileobject extends Rectangle{
    	public int id,layer,objwidth,objheight,tilesizex,tilesizey;
    	public boolean smarttile;
    	public static ImageIcon tiletopleft,tiletop,tiletopright,tileleft,tile,tileright,tilebottomleft,
    	tilebottom,tilebottomright,tiletopthin,tiletbthin,tilebottomthin,tileleftthin,tilelrthin,tilerightthin;
     
    	public Immobileobject(int x,int y,int layer,int objwidth,int objheight, int tilesizex, int tilesizey,
    			boolean smarttile){
    		this.x=x;
    		this.y=y;
    		this.layer=layer;
    		this.tilesizex=tilesizex;
    		this.tilesizey=tilesizey;
    		this.objwidth=objwidth;
    		this.objheight=objheight;
    		this.width=objwidth*tilesizex;
    		this.height=objheight*tilesizey;
    		this.smarttile=smarttile;
     
    		setImages();
     
    	}
     
    	private void setImages() {
    		tiletopleft = new ImageIcon("KTCTestTile.png");
    		tiletop = new ImageIcon("KTCTestTile.png");
    		tiletopright = new ImageIcon("KTCTestTile.png");
    		tileleft = new ImageIcon("KTCTestTile.png");
    		tile = new ImageIcon("KTCTestTile.png");

    		if(smarttile){

    Where is the driver? A class with a main() method.

    Here:
    package gravitygamesinteractive.scorpioengine.main;
     
     
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.awt.*;
     
    public class Frame{
    	private static final long serialVersionUID=1L;
    	private Image screen;
    	private static int pixelSize=2;
     
    	public static Dimension size = new Dimension(1280,720);
    	public static Dimension realsize=new Dimension(size.width/pixelSize,size.height/pixelSize);
     
    	public static String name="Scorpio Engine";
    	public static int sx=0,sy=0;
     
    	public static int dir;
    	public static boolean isMoving=false;
    	public static boolean isJumping=false;
     
    	public Frame(){
     
    }
    public static JFrame frame;
    public static Main main;
    public static void main(String args[]){
    	JFrame frame=new JFrame();
        frame.setSize(size);
        main=new Main();
        frame.add(main);
     
    	frame.setTitle(name);

    	frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    	frame.setVisible(true);
    	//frame.addKeyListener(new KeyListen());
     
     
    }

    Yeah, that was testing to make sure that the paintComponent method in the Level class was being called properly. That's not the problem though, the problem is with the Immobileobject and Ground classes. Try replacing KTCTestTile and KTCTestTile2 with other images and you should see the problem I'm talking about. The Ground object draws KTCTestTile, the image set by Immobileobject, as opposed to KTCTestTile2, which is supposed to be the one that shows up.

    Can you make a small, simple program that compiles, executes and shows the problem.
    Try replacing KTCTestTile and KTCTestTile2 with other images
    If what has been posted does not show the problem, why was it posted?

    It will show the problem, its just that the images weren't included. If you put images in the main folder of the .jar with those names, it should show you what I'm talking about...

    Describe what you see when the code is executed and what you want to change about the way it executes.


    I changed the image names to images I have.
    Now I get a bunch of displays of one of images in the upper left corner of the black rectangle in the upper left of the frame????

    Well, what I see is the first image, as well as the black rectangle in the top left. What I should be seeing is the SECOND image in the top left, as well as the black rectangle. I'm trying to override the first image with the second.

    One problem I see is the use of static variables.

    Try debugging the code by adding some println statements to show the values of the variables that are used.

    When I put a println in the Ground object, it says the value is the second image, however, in the Level.paintComponent method, it says the object in the array has it set to the first image.

    That says there are two variables with the same name that have different contents in different parts of the objects.
