Finally starting my project called Firelight with a few other people. So far, I've coded my player class so I'm ready to make a character creation program. Only thing is, I really don't want to do a text-based RPG. My last attempt was with the basic JFrame class. It was functional, but a bit dull and in my opinion, a bit klunky to work with with the JFrame, JPanel, JButton, etc. Is there another graphics library that's a bit simple I could work with? Would going up to something like OpenGL be too much at this point?

Have you considered the Java 2D API? I have no doubt that you could learn the basic things you need to create an engine in a few hours.

could I get a bit of a description, or a link, on what SDL or Java 2D API is and how it works differently? Why would you say SDL, and I've heard lots of people use it...

I would first recommend google for the website. but to save you the trouble, SDL stands for simple-direct layer. So...it will be "simple." I do not use Java so no idea on the API. but here's the link for SDL
