When you click the library only download it ONLY comes with the jar, so you can't even have anything run because you don't have the proper .dll files. Why offer a download that won't work? This seems like a HUGE LOGICAL ERROR.

PS where CAN I find the .dll files in the meantime while this is fixed?

Its not a mistake, Slick is wrapper library around lwjgl, so naturally you need lwjgl's jar, aswell as its natives.

There are multiple pages on the wiki about how to get Slick up and running with your IDE of choice.

In the programming world this is known as a "dependency" -- you can download LWJGL jars and natives here:
