So I'm making a little game that has a background and a player "ship", the problem is I can't get the ship to draw on top of the background. The player is a tranparent png(with alpha channel) 32x32 image. When I try to draw the image over the background tiles it just draws the player. I know its good to have code so this is just an example of how I'm drawing things.



One thing to note is that when I draw the background over the player, I can move to where there isnt a part of the map drawn and I can see the player is draw. So I think it has something to do with the transparency.

Edit: Upon futer examination I've seen that it might have to do with the layout of the contentPane. I will look into this more.
