Problem with Tutorial (Hello Modelloading)

This application always exits itself with a nullpointer exception

Exception in game loop
   at jmetest.TutorialGuide.HelloModelLoading.simpleInitGame(
   at jmetest.TutorialGuide.HelloModelLoading.main(

does anybody know where the problem is?

Did you step into the code at all to find the line that throws the error?

Well, something's null, and at line 81 thats where the binary importer loads the model you converted. Are you using the default maggie.obj model? Or your own? If the latter, most likely your model didn't get converted correctly…
