Hello,

I'm currently prototyping a game in java, which I hope to develop to a proper game. It's 2D, top down, fullscreen, turn-based strategy, with simple animation. Currently I've built it in swing, using Frames and I'm currently working on a panel which the graphics will be drawn to.

My question is, is building a game in swing (with a fullscreen, undecorated panel) a bad idea? Should I be working in fullscreen exlusive mode?

I should add, there is a management aspect to the game, which necessitates a lot of buttons and labels.

Thank you!
