    Default Need Help with Game

    I am trying to start a new thread to call main() but i can't understand the error.

    package button_game;
     
    import javax.swing.*; 
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    public class Button_Game {
        static int k;
    //A1 and B1 contain what to do when they are clicked. Right now they terminate the program until i figure out how to loop it.
        private static class A1 implements ActionListener{
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
             k = 1;
              }
                                                  }
     
     
     private static class B1 implements ActionListener {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){  
                System.exit(0);
                                                      }  
                                                       }
     //addComponentsToPane positions the buttons on the screen randomly
       public static void addComponentsToPane(Container pane){
           do {
                     int x; 
          x = (int)(200*Math.random());
          int y;
          y = (int)(200*Math.random());
            pane.setLayout(null);
           int a = (int)(1000*Math.random());
            int b = a%2;
            if (b == 0){
                String c = Integer.toString(a);

    sorry this is the error: method main in class button_game.Button_Game cannot be applied to given types;
    required: java.lang.String[]
    found: no arguments
    reason: actual and formal argument lists differ in length

    The compiler can't see a main() method with no arguments. The only one it sees takes a String array as an argument. You need to add a String array as an argument in your method call.
