An applet I am creating uses Timers for its animation.
Even though the Timer is set to repeat at a constant 30ms, the applet's framerate on my computer versus on my brother's laptop is significantly better.
Is there a chance that on slower computers, the Timer "ticks" slower, so to speak?
Or is it because the Timer pauses when the actionPerformed() method is called (like a method within a method which causes a longer delay)?
How can I either fix or get around the problem?
