Quick Question on 2D Java Games
Hi, I'm creating a boulder dash game and I have the playing board creating and also have the 80's smooth scrolling going so that only a part of the board is shown at any given time. What I want to do now is have a little scoreboard on top left corner that keeps (time elapsed/diamonds needed/remaining time). What would be the best tool to do that? I tried with JTextField and my time elapsed and remaining time shows fine in there but it goes in the top middle of the screen and the letters are small. I wanted to create a little scoreboard instead..........I only have 1 JPanel now. should i create another one? A little lost at what would be best option. I'm currently keeping the time with incrementing a double in my method using a timer.
