Forgive me for not going through all 454 lines of code. I assume you are not using any standard "button" object, such as JButton.

I also notice that you dont have anything (relevent) in the mouseClicked or mousePressed methods, unless of course "p = 0" is you turning off your pause? If this is the case, please change p to mean something resonable!!! Its not a local variable its a field of your class, it needs to have a meaningfull name, expecially if its an int. You might know what It means now, but you wont in a few weeks if you go back to the code, and I dont so its harder for me to help you.

Right, after annother look there are a few things.

1) some tips on debugging (if you dont want to use a debugger)

print stuff out! Inserting a println("hi") on the mouseClicked, mouseMoved methods results in no output, so we arn't even getting inside these methods.

2) Now we know that, we have narrowed down the problem. You have the mouseListener and mouseMotionListener methods alright, but you havnt added them to your applet!

under addKeyListener (this);

place the lines:

addMouseListener(this);
        addMouseMotionListener( this );

3) This still isnt right, allthough its saying "hi" when we press the mouse, our second println (that you should have put) inside the if statement:

public void mouseClicked (MouseEvent e)
    {
        System.out.println("hi");
    	if (mx < 360 && mx < 460 && my > 550 && my < 620)
        {
            p = 0;
            repaint ();
            System.out.println("yey");
        }
    }
}

isnt going, yey! So now we know exactly where the code is failing, its not satisfying the statement "mx < 360 && mx < 460 && my > 550 && my < 620" so have a reeeeaaallly good stare at that and spot the problem (and kick yourself) ^_^

Just seeing that huge block of code made me sick, well done for helping him
