Looking through this code. I do not understand how it uses vectors in it.
I found this site which has a skeleton/template of a game on it. The game applet seems to be jurky/laggy/not smooth. It uses system milliseconds for timing the movement. I think I will keep researching threads for games.
In the code on the site it uses polygons to draw the ship graphics. In the Ship class a boolean array is used to store the coordinates of the shape of the polygon. There is also a Public Ship being used and the boolean is called ship. The names are the same but the difference is the lower and upper capital use. I am looking how this is used.
I see a command called rotatepoint. This is useful.
The game example seems to be using a class called Bullet and is stored in an array list. What are Objects?
Maybe Objects are something like procedures that you place in Classes. And what are Methods?
I find that objects are things like variables and the special things that Java has like vectors and rectangles.
I think I read that Methods are like things called procedures.
A 3d starfield example which has a star class. It looks like in the opening of the source code that the class is being made a array. classname followed by a vaiable that must be the arrayname object class thing. this is being looped/iterated through.
The code on the linked page above shows how to make multiple things (are classes called objects to?) Useful.
I still have no idea that if you put the rendering of objects in a thread if it will cause errors. I read that programming with multiple threads causes errors if game data is changed/modified. I also read that synchronizing is something that can be used to stop that. Still I need to read and search more until I find something that I can understand.
I read that John Carmack used two threads for one of his games. I also read that you should not use more then one thread. But I also read that you can only use multiple processor cores if you use multiple threads. And having more processor power is essential. I remember my game being slow if I use lots of things in it.
Looking for names of simple games.
Using search keywords : awt import applet -package <name of game> in google.
