I'm making a game in java/libgdx. when I run the code in the desktop launcher it gives me a bunch of errors. All the errors are from the badlogic default package.

My code:

package com.wyvern.paperplane.desktop;

import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.lwjgl.LwjglApplication;
import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.lwjgl.LwjglApplicationConfiguration;
import com.wyvern.paperplane.PaperPlane;

public class DesktopLauncher {
    public static void main (String[] args) {
      LwjglApplicationConfiguration cfg = new       
      cfg.title = "my game";
      cfg.useGL30 = true;
      cfg.width = 720;
      cfg.height = 1280;
      new LwjglApplication(new PaperPlane(), cfg);

I don't understand why it gives me all the default badlogic errors when I only use my own package.

Here are some of the errors, note that i don't use any of the com.badlogic:

  • \$\begingroup\$ You are trying to load it in your code, this is why you get this error. \$\endgroup\$

Please go through this tutorial, published by libgdx,


In above tutorial, in "Loading the assets" section, you can change/remove the image (badlogic's by default image) as per your requirement.


You need to to point your working directory to the assets folder.

Snippet from https://github.com/libgdx/libgdx/wiki/Manual-project-setup

The Android project has a subfolder named assets, which is created automatically. Files available to the Android application must be placed here. This is problematic, because these same files must be available to the desktop application. Rather than maintain two copies of all the files, the desktop project should be configured to find the assets in the Android project:

In the Properties for the core project: click the Source tab, click Link Source, Browse, select the "assets" folder from your Android project and click OK. Specify "assets" for the folder name and click Finish then OK. Note: If your desktop and Android projects are in the same parent folder, you can use "PARENT-1-PROJECT_LOC/gamename-android/assets" for the location of the linked assets folder, where "gamename-android" is the name of your Android project. This is better than a hard-coded path if you plan on sharing your projects with others.
