First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong category but there was no "Faster Drawing Forum" and I got confused. As you may have already assumed I'm having problems with drawing. I have viewed the Java2D demo applet that comes along with the JDK and I have tried many of the same techniques yet, my techniques are consistently slower, despite being smaller in scale than those in the J2D demo. Can anyone give advice or direct me to a tutorial that can help speed up my drawing processes. I'll save some time by saying I do use a buffered image before I draw to the screen.
Hi Nick - Looks to me like you've got the right forum; perhaps we don't have enough draw experts around to help you on this one. I'm certainly no real help. I did find this link through google which may help you on a general track. I didn't read the whole thing but maybe it at least helps you frame the problem.
