what is the easiest and fastest way for a beginner to create a in game or out game menu?? the more detail you give me the better because i’m really new at this.
thanks a lot.
use swing, swing is faster for out of game gui.
Fullscreen : 1523 - 1777.
Window no gui : 1523 - 1777.
Swing : 1523-1777.
Nifty : 571-615.
Nifty only (1 button) : 914 - 969.
Working as expected, swing doesn’t have to update its canvas every update like nifty has.
Using swing is not a good idea as its got its own update thread and managing two parallel threads that basically don’t know about each other is a pain architecturally, also you cannot really combine the swing and canvas contents. Also, NiftyGUI performance will be improved by multithreading and buffering in the future, swing integration will not improve…
You can create the menu in Swing however it will use regular buttons, labels, etc. Nifty GUI on the other hand, provides you a nifty button, nifty label, etc. Nifty is more nifty.
