    Default Game problem

    Hi,

    I wrote this bit of code for my game: (it is meant to be a copy of pong, so that is why the background is named that way)
     
    import java.awt.geom.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.util.*;
     
    public class Game extends GameFramework
    {
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    {
         Game game = new Game();
    }
     
     
     
        public Game()
        {
     
            super(800,600);
            setBackground("pongintropage.png");
     
     
     
     
     
     
            this.startGame();
        }
     
        public void update(double elapsed)
        {
     
        }
     
        public void processKeys()
        {
     
        }
     
        @Override
        public void draw(Graphics2D g2)
        {
     
        }
    }


    I expected the usual 800x600 pixel screen with the selected background, but instead I got that blank command prompt black screen. Is there something wrong with my code??


    Thanks,
    Yo Cas Cas

    We have no idea. Where did you get the GameFramework class from? You have several methods in your Game class that all do nothing. What exactly are you expecting to happen?

    Since nothing in your code does that the expectation is the GameFramework should do it. As mentioned above GameFramework is not a standard Java class. We have never heard of it and have no idea what it does. So how are we supposed to help you?

    Are you a troll?

    If not you either have to understand the GameFramework and what it does. Once again we cannot help you with that as we do not know what the GameFramework class is. Else you dump GameFramework and read a tutorial on Swing or Applets.

    Try extending JFrame and see what that does.
