My current project uses Slick2D. I've never had a problem with using JarSplice to distribute my programs that use Slick up until now. When I go to actually create the "Fat Jar", it gives this message:

Jar creation failed due to the following exception: error in opening zip file

Like I said, I've never come across this problem before. I know that it isn't the natives or the main class causing the issue.

Has anyone ever run into this before? What was causing the issue?

Here's my source, if that helps at all. http://www.mediafire.com/?57qee753bpru8d7

Thanks.

How are you exporting your Eclipse project into a .jar?

File -> Export -> Java -> Runnable JAR file -> Copy required libraries into a sub-folder next to the generated JAR, is my process.

I am exporting as a standard JAR, not a runnable one. JarSplice doesn't like runnable JARs.

Runnable Jars have been working for me  persecutioncomplex. I should switch to standard jar then.

Is "Jar creation failed due to the following exception: error in opening zip file" all the error message says?

Fat JARs might be opened by the default software handling ZIP archives, WinRAR for example... Please don't use fat JARs, it is not a viable solution.

Yes, that is the only error given.

What would you recommend for distributing programs that use Slick2D?

windows: exe
linux: .sh or package like .deb
mac: whatever mac does: appbuilder thing
has nothing to do with slick, goes for everything
you also package a private jvm

Thanks, but my issue lies in simply getting a .jar to run that references Slick. I don't know why this is causing me so much trouble, it's worked for me for over a year now with no problems.
