You can use BufferedImage objects in order to load images to be used later, like this:

BufferedImage birdImage = panel.loadImage("bird1.jpg");
BufferedImage birdImage2 = panel.loadImage("bird2.jpg");

They you can use g.drawImage(imageName, x, y, width, height, null); in order to draw the image.

In order to add sounds you can add panel.playSoundFile("fileName.wav"); to your methods in order to add sound effects when certain things happen, and you can use it when the game starts in order to play music.

to add images and sounds to your program you can refer to the following examples, you can access it from moodle too.

                **Adding Images**

//import
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;

  • // you can create BufferedImage objects to draw later

BufferedImage birdImage = panel.loadImage("bird1.jpg");
BufferedImage birdImage2 = panel.loadImage("bird2.jpg");
Graphics g = panel.getGraphics();

  • // image, x, y, width, height, null

g.drawImage(birdImage,200,450,600,150,null);
g.drawImage(birdImage2,0,300,100,50,null);

              **Adding Sound**
  • You should use .AU and WAV format sound files.
  • (But some WAV files didn't work for me... not sure why)
  • You can convert MP3 files into WAV or AU
  • using the free Audacity sound editing software.
             **panel.playSoundFile("meow.wav");**
