Until now ive only done applets, now Im trying to create Applications with frames. I am getting really frustrated with it. I want it to have a main frame that has all the graphics which need to be updated several times a second. Im confused where i put my thread and my paint(g) method. right now i have my main class with my static main function and another class that extends frame for the frames. Where do i Put the Thread and where do i Draw my graphics??
