I have tried for 2 whole days to open the minicraft source (search online for it) in eclipse. I have been unable to. Please, I need a step for step instruction on how to successfully open it and how to run it in eclipse. Any help would be very appreciated.

Are you talking about MINECRAFT ?

You can't. It's owned by someone else.

You can try reverse engineering it using java tools, but why?

No, It's not Minecraft. Search Minicraft, It's made by the same person and is open source.

What problems are you having ? It's in a GitHub repository, so presumably you need to have a GITHub client installed to download it. I've never used GitHub so I don't know the details.
You can just browse to individual files and copy them, but I guess that might take a while.

I just need a step by step instruction on how to correctly open it in eclipse , be able to edit it, and be able to run it. I am nearly a complete noob, so I have no idea how to import it into eclipse.

Well, I'm not a complete noob. I just keep getting errors when importing and I can't seem to be able to run the game.

Ok, So minicraft it is.

Do you get errors importing, or compiling or executing?

If you tell us exactly which phase, and post the errors we may help.

Also, importing into eclipse may require a .project file. if minicraft is not in this format, you are in for a hard time.
If it's maven based, you can run: mvn eclipse:eclipse

i just don't know enough from your post or about minicraft to help you at this point.
