Buy a book, study it, don't turn the page until you grasp what's on that page. Write your 'Hello World' program, slowly write more complex programs, preferably not with a GUI. Master the language first, after that, try to make a window with buttons, etc. Don't skip any parts, it might take a few months and you can maybe even show us a command-line game! Once the logic works, try to turn it into a GUI, where you paint things, and catch key-events. Yay! After that the possibilities are endless.
There is no shame in text RPGs. I would totally play it. Smiley

Thanks Ravin!(:
Good advice indeed, is that what you did?

I can see it taking awhile before I have anything up.. I was trying to make that space invaders game that guy posted earlier and I copied the coding and set the class right and stuff but it didn't work of course. I get errors on the "String argv[]" line all the time =[  can someone tell me why??

And then I'll go back to the basic tutorial that I was doing before that was making me windows and inputs and buttons (:

But this error is annoying me, same with some other ones sometimes, why?! >.<

No, I wasted a lot of time on a bad book (yes, I advise you to buy a good book) when that thing called the internet wasn't anything like it is today and wasn't much of a resource for n00bs. I also spent a lot of time programming without any guidelines whatsoever. That was almost 15 years ago.

Anyway, few people learn from other peoples mistakes, they have to experience it on their own. Please prove me wrong.

public static void main(String[] args) {}

It should look like that. I can't help you diagnose the problem if you don't give detail.
