I feel really dumb asking this , but i got an headache reading tons of tutorials
about setting slick2d with eclipse .My problem :
when i extract  the  zip slick2d , i don't find any jar file extension.
I need to rename some file ?

(Please don't laugh too much , i'm coming from xna and c# )

Thanks a lot for any help

i think a simple search for ".jar" in the folder that you extarct Slick2D in will solve the problem  Roll Eyes
and reading this will not give you a headache  Grin

 alaslipknot  ,  i CAREFULLY searched in the folder , but there are only these
files :
a META-INF folder with a manifest file
a "org" > " newdawn" > "slick" > ... nested folders with a ton of classes , no jars.
I downloaded the libraries ( not the source code ) here

sure i'm missing something really simply

thx however  Smiley

ah i see  Roll Eyes
i think you don't even have Java installed in your computer, the file that you have download is a .Jar file
this is the link

and because you don't have Java installed you are seeing it as a Zip file
now go  here to install Java

I highly doubt one would try slick before even installing java - most non-developers have it too. Anyways, I'm pretty sure you downloaded the source code for Slick, not actual library - go to the site, mouseover "downloads", click "library only"...

I would not recommend Slick2D however, since you're starting it won't hurt to switch. For a high-level game library, I think most people would agree libGDX is better - Slick is kinda outdated, while libgdx is constantly expanding. Plus, libgdx provides support to export to android, html5, and ios, and the documentation is always growing.

You could have your Winrar or 7zip set to have .jar files open as a archive instead of with java, making you think you had to extract it.

Thanks to you all for the tips ! 
Actually , the problem was WinRar !
However i decided to follow the hint  and bought the Zechner ' s book and install libgdx .

Thx again  Smiley
