JOGL involved... move thread if need be... but please to keep reading...
Aight:
Panel GamePanel's got a GLCanvas.
Frame TheGame adds a GamePanel.
Frame TheGame is NOT displaying GLCanvas of GamePanel, as the author of the code wants it to.

also to note: When GamePanel was a Frame (I called it GameFrame!) it worked like a charm. It hasn't retained it's charm�d state through the transition to a Panel. Code can be provided, but I'm figuring the problem itself is fairly generic.
Thank ye Kindly

by setting the height and width? the getPreferredSize returns a Dimension object, which is basically a combination of height and width anyway.
Try using an absolute layoutmanager and manually set the size of the canvas and see what happens.
 
please buy this thing and then I get a fat cut of the action:
