Hey. I was going to college taking a bit of first year Java until I was unfortunately unable to continue going to college (Lack of motivations on top of actual phsyical barriers, like my car dieing, and my internet going out for 2 weeks(which dropped me from straight A's to C's and below, because of when it hit)) anyway, I've been trying to learn Java on my own, as I still have my college textbook, and a desire to learn.

I've been reading Tutorials, and looking around for information, Oracle is amazing. Anyway. Here's the Compiler error. error: cannot find symbol
private BufferedImage image = new BufferedImage(WIDTH, HEIGHT, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RBG);
symbol: variable TYPE_INT_RBG
location: class Game
1 error

I'm not sure why I'm getting this error, and I feel like I either forgot to import something, or I am missing something from my java libraries. If anyone could help with this, I would greatly appreciate it.

May be you mean TYPE_INT_RGB or TYPE_INT_BGR? BufferedImage does not have TYPE_INT_[b]RBG[/b] member.
