Hello im starting to learn java. I know little bit of python, but i know more about c an c++,i wanna start working with java. Im having a problem. When i use the textfield an type straight it doesnt show the next set of text. An i wanna also do is make the text not show all up at once. Mabey like a slow scroll an after the user inputs something it should scroll. I dont know i would like to get the problem im having fixed before i move on to something else. Thanks
import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.*;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main extends Applet
     private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

     String text;
     Scanner user_in = new Scanner(;
     Label lab1;
        TextField t1;

     public void init()
           t1 = new TextField(12);

    public void paint(Graphics g)
         super.paintComponents(g);//calls super-class 
        Color black = new Color(0,0,0);//creates color Black 
        Color white = new Color(255,255,255);
        setBackground(black); // Sets the background 
               g.drawString("Welcome to Immortal Online ",10,50);
             g.drawString("You see a town ahead."+"\n"+"Type 'Straight' and hit enter to go to town,'right' to go to the field,"+"\n"+" or 'left' to go to the forest.",10,65);
