Jar files require a manifest file, which must be located inside the file under /META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
The manifest file needs to contain specific information so the .jar can be run.  Many items on that link are optional, such as the methods for signing the jar, but a minimal jar would probably be:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Class-Path: HelloWorld.jar
Main-Class: HelloWorld


I've tried editing the Manifest file several times in different ways but it still gives me the same error. I extracted the contents of the .jar, edited the manifest file and used 7zip to open the .jar again to overwrite the manifest with the one with the changes I made. I even used the exact same text you gave me. I'm still getting the same error.

What do you mean by on console? The console window on the bottom of Eclipse? If so its throwing me a bunch of undeclared errors when I try to run it.

I refer you to this ad, http://www.gamedev.net/classifieds/item/2401-help-wanted-free-education-in-game-development/ I signed up and am learning a lot. Read the whole ad and just sign up on their website, you'll start off as an intern learning game development and who knows where you'll go from there?

Thank you, that seems to be the exact type of program that I'm looking for, any similar suggestions would be appreciated.

I can do some basic programming like if statements, for loops, all the way up to arrays. The main reason I would be using a tool is for the graphics, sound, and the other things that would be more difficult to program.
