    Are you trying to copy the code from the method player() into method main()
    If so, here is the answer: methods having void type cannot return any values, the return statement needs to be replaced with something meaningful.

    @ ranjithfs1:
    I am trying to copy the whole method from another class to main. Even if I remove the return there is still error.
    "Multiple markers at this line
    - Syntax error on token(s), misplaced construct(s)
    - Syntax error on token "int", @ expected.

    @Norm: That is the whole code already.
