  1. So I was all happy today to come on to EMC to work on my projects. I have a snow day so I get like 2x the work done and bam I am joining then logging in then it freezes and just crashes... I have reinstalled already and deleted my versions please help! Also, have checked my firewall it isn't blocked. Thanks if you do :D

  6. Solutions:
    1) MagicLauncher
    2) Forge
    3) LiteLoader
    4) Downgrade to ~1.7.4

  7. before you go into any worlds, set all of your settings to minimum
    then once you get in (assuming it works) slowly raise them
    that should work

    EDIT: or allocate more memory

  8. did the settings 2 times still fails and I mc would work any other time when I have my web browser open I have tried with it closed already to.

    1. I am on 1.7.4
    2. The mod loaders run on the same settings as mc it just redirects mods to certain locations.

  13. Not a EMC issue so they wont be of much help most likely. Try updating your jar or downgrading to 1.7.2. Are you running this as an administrator?

  14. Causes of crashes


    Crashes can easily occur due to mod conflicts, or buggy mods. If you've installed several mods, try renaming the "bin" directory in the Minecraft folder, then start Minecraft (Or replace your current minecraft.jar with a clean minecraft.jar from either a clean backup, download a jar file from the internet or force update the game should cause you to get a new clean jar file.). A new bin folder will be created. Now install each mod you desire one at a time, starting Minecraft and assuring that there is no crashing for each mod. Once the crashing starts occurring again, the last mod installed is likely the problem, or another mod simply does not work with it. Either way, either remove the mod you determined to be causing problems, or repeat the first step, except without installing the problematic mod.

    Hardware problems

    Problems with your computer's hardware can also easily cause crashing, or buggy behavior. If this is the case, it's likely you're experiencing problems in other, unrelated games as well. If Minecraft is the only game experiencing issues, then it is unlikely to be a hardware issue.
    If you are indeed experiencing crashing or visual corruption in other games as well, the first thing to check is whether your computer's vents are blocked, or clogged with dust (which inevitably occurs over time). Dust or vent/fan blockages can cause overheating, which may not be severe enough to cause problems during normal computer use, but during more intensive activities such as gaming, the temperature may spike. If you're using a laptop, make sure any vents on its sides or bottom are neither blocked or filled with dust. For a desktop, check obvious fan locations for blockages, and use a flashlight to peer inside the case. If there is lots of dust, or any internal fans appear to not be spinning, you should either take your computer to a repair shop for a "tune-up" (mention that you suspect there is overheating problems), which you will have to pay for, or read a few tutorials online related to computer cleaning (note that a computer's internal components are highly sensitive to damage from ESD (Electrostatic Discharge, basically a static shock), so it would not be difficult for you to accidentally damage your computer).
    If your computer appears to not be suffering from overheating related issues, another cause of game crashing could be damaged components, especially either the RAM, or the video card. If the problem just recently started occurring, and you have not recently installed any major updates or software such as Anti-Virus suites, you may want to take your computer to a shop to have it tested, or you can do it yourself using tools such as "memtest86+", "Furmark", etc. (however these tools tend to require a medium to large amount of computer knowledge).
    It should be noted that even if your computer meets the basic system requirements of Minecraft, there is a possibility that your hardware might have unique issues, one being the use of Intel GMA (Graphics Media Accelerator) cards, known for issues with OpenGL.


    Though unlikely, unrelated software can conceivably cause crashing in games such as Minecraft. The most likely candidates are User Account Control (Windows Vista, 7 and 8), Gatekeeper (Mac OS X Lion and Mountain Lion), various types of Anti-Malware (i.e. Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Firewall, etc.) software, which could either consume enough system resources to choke other resource hungry applications, or could cause issues as a result of their "Heuristic" real-time scanning. If you recently installed an application such as AV software, try disabling it. If Minecraft stops crashing, you know the AV program is the perpetrator. You can either remove it (not recommended for security reasons), or configure it to ignore Minecraft's folder and executable. If you're unsure of how to, look up some tutorials on the Internet. Another certain crash is to set all the files in the .minecraft folder to read-only.

    Large operations

    Doing large, potentially groundbreaking operations like blowing up a giant ball of TNT, can cause the game to crash.

    Manual initialization

    You can also trigger a crash manually by holding F3 and C. This is used for debugging, and is the safest
    possible crash.
