I'm just trying to get the basic layout to my game ready and then I'm going to work on other stuff. I'm trying to create a working world map first. First of all, I just want to get this main class working and I'm not sure why it isn't doing what I want it to.


When I press Q it should quit but it doesn't work. I looked at Java Sun and I couldn't find out why it wouldn't work.

Also how would I program a sprite to move around and go through an animation when he's walking? I know how to make it move around, just not how to have an animation. I was thinking of creating a new action like QuitAction that would move the character and change the animation but I'm not sure how I'd program that.

I'm not sure if the mnemomic will work every where or just when the user clicks in the menu.

But what you really need is a KeyListener Class, just add this at the end of your MainGUI constructor
addKeyListener(new KeyAdapter()
{
public void keyReleased(KeyEvent e) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
super.keyReleased(e);
System.exit(0);
}
}
);

have fun!

For the animation you could use an animated GIF
