Hi

What might code look like, for a game, a thread, to repaint the game window constantly?

What you mean by constantly, just call repaint()  
maybe like that:

Thread.currentThread().sleep(1000);
repaint();

That seems to work nicely!
Thanks
But, I do 10 mili-seconds, not 1000!

I worry about there being congestion, but does the multi-threading eliminate that as a concern?

I'm not sure multithreading will help with that.

Try first to do it without any special things. Myabe you want to consider incesing time - I odn't know how long it takes to redraw
but it seeems to nme it may be longer than 10 ms
