    the project is not created. i was using eclipse luna before, i reinstalled eclipse and now i have mars 2. i also deleted the latest packages from SDK manager. these are the only solutions i have found

    another thing that i noticed is that eclipse is not working as it should after installing android sdk. for example the icon doesnt change. in the welcome page after installing sdk, it does not give me the option to choose from existing SDKs. when i click File -> New , there is no android application project, and i have to select project then click on android and then android application project.
    can someone pls help ??

    I'd recommend using Android Studio, not Eclipse.

    i thought android studio would be better as well and i have had probelms with eclipse in android before (i used to do basic android a long time ago) but tutorials especially for game development are more easily available for eclipse. if you can find a good android studio game development tutorial, that would be great .

    EDIT 1 - i actually found a good game dev tutorial for android studio. http://gamecodeschool.com/android-projects/
    thnx for the help
