I am trying to create an Eclipse project from a cloned Git repository I've cloned the repository from here:

I have an existing project AndEnginePhysicsBox2DExtension and I want to create one called AndEnginePhysicsBox2DExtension-nazgee with the newly cloned repository.

I have the directories:

Then I edit the .project file, changing:

Also edited build.xml, adding -nazgee to project name

I get this error:
Invalid project description org.eclipse.egit.ui
Invalid project description org.eclipse.core.resources

How do I do this?

How did you edit the ".project" file? If you want to change the name of the project, you just need to rename it from the Package Explorer view using the shortcut "F2". Eclipse may not like if you change the ".project" file while Eclipse is running since it is used internally by Eclipse. Did the error disappeared after a restart of Eclipse? If no, could you open the "Error Log" view (Window -> Show View -> Error Log) and double click on those two errors and paste here the stack trace along with the ".project" file.
