I'm taking my first Java class. I need to create a rock paper scissors game. I can't seem to figure out how to fix it. Please help! Thanks (:

I'm using NetBeans IDE 7.3 btw

I'm not sure why you are getting that error. after I removed the duplicate variables and fixed the brackets mine seemed to work fine. make sure you close your if statement brackets and you don't declare duplicates

well, the main problem is: you are having an exception in the class JavaApplication10, of which you haven't shown any code.
you are somewhere in that class (line 20) treating an int as a boolean, that's your problem. saying more would be speculating.
