java thread game


Before using Java multithreading to develop games, we need to understand and use multithreading. Let's use a small ball to demonstrate the movement and change of objects in multithreading

1, Create a sports ball

1. Use Thread

The following uses Thread to create a Thread every time you click launch, and a small ball moving from left to right appears at any position

The code is as follows:

 *Create a thread class to inherit threads
 *Write the method of thread work in the rewritten run method
 * @author Administrator
public class DrawThread extends Thread{
	private JPanel jp;
	Random r = new Random();
	private int radius = 40;
	private Graphics g;
	public DrawThread(JPanel jp,Graphics g) {
		// TODO Auto-generated constructor stub = jp;
		this.g = g;
	//Override run method
	public void run() {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
	private void draw() {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		//Initial position of the ball
		int x = r.nextInt(jp.getWidth());
		int y = r.nextInt(jp.getHeight());

		for (int i = 0; i < y; i++) {	
			g.fillOval(x+i, y,radius, radius);
			try { 
				Thread.sleep(10);//Unit: ms
			}catch (InterruptedException e1) {
			// TODO Auto-generated catch block
			//Erase after ball movement
			g.fillRect(0, 0, jp.getWidth(), jp.getHeight());

Deficiency: every time you create a small ball, you need to add a thread. The method of erasing the small ball is incorrect, resulting in the flickering or disappearance of several small balls on the canvas at the same time

2. Use Runnable

After using Runnable, it is not necessary to create a thread every time you draw a small ball. The movement of all small balls takes place in one thread, which speeds up the running speed of the CPU.

package com.zl0809;

import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Graphics;
import java.util.List;

public class BallRun implements Runnable{
	private Graphics g;
	private int radius = 20;
	private List<Ball> data;
	public BallRun(Graphics g,List<Ball> data) {
		// TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
		this.g = g; = data;
	public void run() {
		//Ball starting position
		int x = (int)(Math.random()*800);
		int y = (int)(Math.random()*600);
		//Draw ball
			g.fillRect(0, 0, 800, 600);
			for (int i = 0; i < data.size(); i++) {
				Ball ball = data.get(i);
			try {
				Thread.sleep(70);//Thread sleep in microseconds
			} catch (InterruptedException e1) {
				// TODO: handle exception


    	//Ensure that the thread is created once
		if(ballRun == null){
			ballRun = new BallRun(g,data);
			new Thread(ballRun).start();

2, Solve the problem of multi ball flashing

When a certain number of small balls are added to the canvas, the movement of small balls will flash. At this time, we can draw small balls in the cache

    	//Create cache canvas to solve the problem of small ball flicker
        BufferedImage buffer = new BufferedImage(DrawUI.WIDTH, DrawUI.HEIGHT, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_ARGB);
        Graphics bufferG = buffer.getGraphics();

		//The method of writing and drawing a small ball in the middle code part uses the cached canvas to draw a small ball
         //To draw the cache on the interface, you need to use the canvas of the interface
         g.drawImage(buffer, 0, 0, null);

3, Add small balls regularly

In order to generate a small ball regularly in the canvas, you need to add a thread to generate a small ball regularly in the interface. In this thread, every time you sleep for a period of time, you will create a new small ball and put it in the small ball list

public class AutoBall implements Runnable{
	private ArrayList<Ball> ballList;
	public AutoBall(ArrayList<Ball> ballList){
		this.ballList = ballList;

	public void run(){
		//Add 15 balls at the beginning of the game
		for (int i = 0; i < 15; i++) {
			Ball b = new Ball();
			//Thread sleep
			catch(InterruptedException e){
			//Add opponent's small ball
			Ball ball = new Ball();
		} while(true);


4, Own control of the ball

If you want to make the game more interesting, you should make the characters or objects in the game obey your own command.
To make the ball follow the keyboard command or the mouse to respond, we need to get our own ball in the listener, then monitor and change the coordinates of the ball, so as to make the ball move to the direction we want.

    public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e){
    	//getBall() is a method to get the player ball created in the thread
    	//The return value type is Ball
        myball = ballRun.getBall();
		if(e.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_LEFT){
        } else if(e.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_RIGHT){
        } else if(e.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_UP){
        } else if(e.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_DOWN){


Tip: here is a summary of the article:
For example, the above is what we want to talk about today. This paper only briefly introduces the use of pandas, which provides a large number of functions and methods that enable us to process data quickly and conveniently.
