Well, I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but it seems no matter what, I can't do anything from scratch after reading on something. I can't even get a simple image to draw again. You don't have to bother explaining, I just find it odd and I apparently have no understanding whatsoever of how Java works. I think it's because so much stuff is hidden in Java as compared to c++. I followed the tutorial given by Sun themselves and it won't work. I'll probably take a vent break and start over as if I know nothing. Thanks for your help anyway, though.
I think it has something to do with Windows 7. I switched over to my Vista installation and the code works fine.
