What is happening in the background when we pause a game??? And how the game resume and starts???
Hi All of You,
Can any of my friend tell me What is happening in the background when we pause a game??? And how the game resume and starts??? in Java prospective .
I want to know the step by step scenario. I face this question in an interview . And I could not answer it properly .
Well, what I would do in Java is simply stop some sort of timer that's responsible for updating the scene, and when the screen has to be repainted, it checks whether the game is paused and draws an extra filter or text on top.
The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.
You need to post some code, or at least how your program works. If you're using threads for animation, pause the threads. If you're using timers, stop the timers. For multiple threads/timers, just make an array of them and use a for loop to pause/stop each thread/timer. However, if you are doing calculations for animation outside the thread/timer, the stopping of the thread/timer will not be enough.
