So I'm trying to make a simple game and I want the images loaded from the start so I want to create a hashtable that stores the Image with its name as the key. When I call ImageStore.get().getImage("image name") from my gameloop, I get an error when the ImageStore is initialized (shown as a comment in the code).

public class ImageStore {

   private static ImageStore single = new ImageStore();

   public static Hashtable<String, Image> images = new Hashtable<String, Image>();

   private ImageStore() {

      BufferedImage sourceImage = null;

      String dirPath = "images";
      File imageDir = new File(dirPath);
      imageDir = new File(imageDir.toURI());
      String absoluteDirPath = imageDir.getPath();
      absoluteDirPath = absoluteDirPath.replace('\\', '/');
      imageDir = new File(absoluteDirPath);
      File[] imageFiles = imageDir.listFiles();

      if (imageFiles.length == 0)
         System.out.println("Directory empty");
      else {
         for (int i = 0; i < imageFiles.length; i++) {
            String ref = imageFiles[i].getName();
         
            try {
               sourceImage = ImageIO.read(imageFiles[i]);
            } catch (IOException e) {
               fail("Failed to load: " + ref);
            }
           
            GraphicsConfiguration gc = GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getDefaultScreenDevice().getDefaultConfiguration();
            Image image = gc.createCompatibleImage(sourceImage.getWidth(), sourceImage.getHeight(), Transparency.BITMASK);
           
            //both of these print values without problems, so neither argument
           //passed to the hashtable is null
           System.out.println(image.getWidth(null));
            System.out.println(ref);

            //getting a null pointer exception here
           images.put(ref, image);
         }
      }
   }


Also if I'm doing anything in a weird way in the code, let me know of the proper way (I'm new to game programming). Thanks in advance for any help.

Your static initialiser that constructs the ImageStore occurs before the static initialiser that creates the images var Smiley
Swap the lines.
