    Default Graphical Issue

    Hi, Gravity Games here, and I was working on a game project when I encountered a graphical error I've never had before:

    You see, when I add movement to the tick method of my object, the graphics repeatedly render on top of each other, as opposed to only rendering one time.

    Can you post a short program that compiles, executes and shows the problem. Your explanation does not provide many details on what the code is doing.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    My guess is that you are using the paintComponent(Graphics g) method, and you did not call super.paintComponent(g) as the first thing in your method.

    When asking for help, please follow these guidelines to receive better and more prompt help:
    1. Put your code in Java Tags. To do this, put [highlight=java] before your code and [/highlight] after your code.
    2. Give full details of errors and provide us with as much information about the situation as possible.
    3. Give us an example of what the output should look like when done correctly.
