I am struggling to implement two or more threads in an applet. I mean, how can I call the run() of both of them, separately? Sorry if I am being an utter idiot, but I have the deadline of a java project submission is drawing near and I am going crazy! In case you would like to know, I am trying to create a game. Simple stuff (or so I thought). The PC shoots the NPC and both of them move around. I am creating a class that extends Applet. And creating a child thread in it to move the PC around. But I wish to have another thread to move the NPC, how can I? I can post the code, in case you'd like. Thanks, in advance.

class Foo implements Runnable
{
public void run() {
// do the foo
}
}

Thread t1 = new Thread();
Thread t2 = new Thread( new Foo() );

t1.start(); // not run()
t2.start();

Don't go thread-crazy.

So make a PC handler thread class, and NPC handler class (which will handle *all* NPCs).
