Your bug is on this line…

…it’s hard for us to see which line that is but easy for you.

Thanks for replying here is the line :smile:

this.bulletAppState = this.stateManager.getState(BulletAppState.class);

this.stateManager is null because you never set it.

NPEs are like the easy exception to sort out.

haha Have I set it? I thought

public BulletAppState bulletAppState;
public AppStateManager stateManager;

Do you need another BullletAppState class that you write yourself? That may be the problem
As i’m trying to convert it as it was an simple application format before and i’m trying to gett used to doing it in appstate format. And only the main class as the switcher between appstates? I’m I doing it wrong here? As I came to understand you should do.

Take a read of this. It’s along the path you’re heading. http://wiki.jmonkeyengine.org/doku.php/jme3:beginner:hello_physics

Ok, imagine you have a box on your desk that you’ve labeled “stateManager”. Look in there. Is there anything in the box? No… because you haven’t put anything in the box. = is how you put things in the box. NPE is caused by trying to do something with the nothing that’s in the box but expecting it to be something.

It seems you are really new to Java… you might be picking the hardest way possible to learn it. I recommend finding a few good Java tutorials to start out with.

Thank you jayfella much appreciated I’ll check that out :slight_smile:

Ok it worked before as a simpleapp format but it’s not working now in appstate format? So i’m trying to understand won’t work
and i’m going to check out java tuts What’s the extra code i need to put in in appstate format? As i’m guessing physics work different in appstate format then simpleapp?

Everything worked in simple app format The chr could walk, scene loaded etc when it’s the main class but reading lots in jme3 tuts on the wiki and in forms you should do it in appstates not all in one class.

Also is it correctly the way i’m doing things minus the newbiesness making the main class a ‘switcher’ and then put the rest of the code in appstates etc? Or is there another way or i’m missing something?

This code solve it ?

public GameRunningState(AppStateManager stateManager) {
this.stateManager = stateManager;

this.stateManager = new AppStateManager();

That creates a new AppStateManager. I’m hesitant to digress any further, but, at the risk of throwing fuel in the fire, steer way, way, way away from the keyword static (newcomers seem to think it’s a one-stop solution to all their problems, but it’s actually the beginning of all their problems), and do a little reading up on object-orientated programming. With those two directions of advice you should be on your way. We all start somewhere, you may as well do it properly :sunny:

So I should put this whole project on hold and learn java fully or can i do it at the same time? How do I solve this error? Also thank you for the advice

Well, your issue is kind of super-simple entry level Java stuff… which is why I hesitate because this is the simplest of the 2,000,000,000 other problems you will encounter immediately following.

You are passed the stateManager right in the initialize() method. You can just use it. Set it if you like to your local field but if you don’t use it anywhere else then there is no need. This is “first week” Java learning about variable scope, really.

Learning programming is hard. Learning 3D game programming is really really hard. Learning to do both at the same time is about the same as learning to ride a bike and shave with a straight razor at the same time. Fraught with peril.

After all, one does not go from “no math” to “calculus” by starting out wanting to solve multivariable differential equations. That’s a lesson for getting frustrated and giving up.
