    Basic Java Problem

    Hey everyone, I'm sorta teaching myself Java programming, and everything was going great until I tried rewriting my "Strobe" program so that it would work if you resized the window. I hit run, and the GUI opened... and it was blank. I quickly tried several things: 1. First, I changed it from a random color to a standard color. No luck. 2. Next, I just made it a square that took up the entire screen. Still nothing. 3. I tried buttons and text boxes. They worked fine, leading me to believe that my error is in the "PaintComponent" method. 4. I had some of my more experienced friends look at it. They weren't very enthusiastic, mumbled some stuff and walked off. 5. Wrote the code on a friend's computer and ran it. Same problem. 6. Finally, I came up with the code below: import java.awt.*; import javax.swing.*; public class Stoof { JFrame frame; DrawSquare square; public static void main(String[] args) { Stoof test = new Stoof(); test.run(); } public void run() { JFrame frame = new JFrame(); DrawSquare square = new DrawSquare(); frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE); frame.setSize(300,300); frame.getContentPane().add(BorderLayout.CENTER, square); frame.setVisible(true); } public class DrawSquare extends JPanel { public void PaintComponent(Graphics g){ //I suspect my error is in this method. g.setColor(Color.blue); g.fillOval(100,100,100,100); } } } As far as I can tell, this is EXACTLY what I was doing when it worked, but it just displays a blank screen. Explanation of my blindingly obvious error would be much appreciated. NOTE: I tried both an inner class and a separate file. Same result.
  2. Hey everyone, I'm back with more questions about Vegas Movie Studio. If this belongs in Support, let me know, but I don't really NEED help with anything, I'm more just curious. Recently, I rediscovered my old Movie Studio 9.0 Platinum program, and decided to try some stuff out. I can do some simple effects (muzzle flash/gunshot, "cloning"), but I'd like to know how to do other stuff, too. In essence, this thread is for discussion of techniques with this or another editing program, or for any questions about the program, which hopefully someone else will answer, as I'm a beginner. At the moment, however, I do have a certain question. I have seen videos on YouTube of people using certain effects to create "magic" (i. e. shooting a ball of energy out of their hand). While the ones I've seen have been... mediocre, to say the least, I'm willing to give it a try. This could easily be achieved the same way a muzzle flash would, by layering on another video with the Chroma Keyer tool, but I do not have an overlay video to use. If there's a good way to make or find these overlays, and not look terrible, please let me know, as this is probably the easiest way to do it. Here's the two things I'd like to see done: 1. Shoot a fireball or energy ball (the more I can do, the more detail I may or may not go into about how I'd like this to look, assuming I can't do it for myself. 2. Shoot a beam or bolt of light... this is my ultimate goal. That's it for current questions. Let me know of anything else you may know how to do or want to see done, I love this kind of thing. -Blade

    Okay, I found a video that displays the desired effect quite well, and claims to use the version I have... the video itself is pretty terrible, but that can be overlooked for now. EDIT: Oops, forgot to post the link... that would probably help. Stupidish Video

    Worked this out on my own, thanks again for any help.

    Torrent Issue

    What folder are you downloading to? Haha... if that's the problem, I might die of stupidity... No, I'm absolutely serious here. Certain folders WILL give a restrict access to some third party programs like WinRAR and Torrent programs, even on an Administrative account, at least for me on Windows 7. No, I was saying that you could easily be right, and I was stupid for overlooking that... and you WERE right. Thanks, it's working now.

    Torrent Issue

    What folder are you downloading to? Haha... if that's the problem, I might die of stupidity... EDIT: Would someone like to kill me and save some innocent electrical socket the trouble? This is working just fine now... thanks guys. Didn't know how to change it, never thought it was an issue.

    Torrent Issue

    Alright, sorry for the lack of details, I was running some more tests. Essentially, I've tried various sites, and it does this for everything. It'll have some number of seeders, and definitely be downloading. Suddenly, it the status bar, it'll switch from download to "Access is Denied", and the availability bar with turn bright red. I AM a computer admin, if that makes a difference.

    Solved... I'm not quite as smart as I thought.

    Starcraft Issue

    I think you meant "Irfanview". Still, it worked. Awesome, thanks!

    Starcraft Issue

    Hey everyone, I'm having a technical problem with my StarCraft game. Whenever I try to take a screenshot, it automatically saves a file to my desktop (pasting into Paint gives a really messed up looking black blob). I don't know what type of program to open this file with. Any suggestions? Paint doesn't work for this either.

    Running A Game

    I have Vista, and I did try updating it... was your problem similar to the information I've given? If so, I'll try reinstalling, if I can get it to uninstall in the first place....

    Running A Game

    I was recently digging through CD's and found my old KOTOR II disks. They hadn't worked on my old computer, but after putting them in the newer one, I got the game installed and started playing. It was good, and I was happy I had it running. However, I can no longer run it. Whenever I click the launcher, it works the first time, but nothing happens when I click "Game". After that, it doesn't even open the launcher. Any suggestions on how to get my game running again?

    New Quest

    I finished Glorious Memories, giving me 269 quest points. However, I have no freaking clue what the astral rune is for, or how to get the last five Museum Kudos. I had them all before today, and now I needed ten more. I got five for describing the tablets or whatever, but I can't get the rest.

    I completely agree. Let's keep it forever!

    Yes, I'm taking a break from fishing, not for too long, I hope. Instead, I'm doing quests. I'll let everyone know as I finish them, but for now, just know I have about four more I can do, but once I've done those and got a few more skills, I can do an additional five or so.
