When I start up FTB it begins to look like it's working, it loads the launcher, I hit the "Launch" button and it launches the game in a new window. It does a little FTB animation and then crashes. I'm not seeing any errors in the console or in the FML window. If I could get some help that would be great. I'm running on a 2010 iMac with Mac OS X 10.8.2 Intel Core 2 Duo 4gb Memory. That should be good enough to run it. I run Minecraft at about 40 fps on max settings.

I did what you said all the "Console Window" says is Error *Random number* and I try again and it does the same thing over and over again. :P

You need to have a premium Minecraft account. You don't create a FTB account, you simply use your Minecraft information.

Please help me shireen, I downloaded the jar successfully and got the launcher with no problems. But when I click launch, and it begins updating, the download stops at around about 500Kb. This is not a problem with my internet, and I have tried t multiple times and the same thing keeps on happening. Please help me. Thanks.

Hi all, I have, well, was running FTB on my mac laptop running ox x 10.5.8 and it was running up till today. now when i try to load the game i get a message in Terminal "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file". then it gives me a bunch of stuff that starts with the word 'Jave'. now i know I haven't updated, or done anything at all, to the Java that i was running (which I think was always version 6 as the os I have doesn't like 7.Ã

Can anyone please tell me how I can ge the game working again? was it an update that now requires Java 7? in which case, how do I un-update it?

Edit; it is now a day later and i am now up and running again. i got my brother, who's been fiddling with computers since 1981 to have a look. the problem was that it was looking at a previous version of java (version 5) rather than version 6. It was then not looking for the ftb jar on the desktop. He told me the code to type into Terminal to fix it. Happy days. If someone else has the same problem, I hope that helps in some way.

Many thanks

PS: @[size=12px][color=rgb(24,126,16)]michni[/color] you need to put your legitimate username and password in for your genuine copy of Minecraft from their site. Then hit 'Update' then 'Launch'. I found I had to retype the password each time as t didn't remember it too well each time I loaded the game up.[/size]

I had the same problem until I found the answer on another site. You need to use the same login information as your Minecraft account. Otherwise you have an illegal copy of minecraft in which case thats your problem.

Shireen_M, I understand why you wouldn't want to answer this question because of the whole illegal copy thing, but at the same time it wasn't stated in the video (at least not that I noticed) that the minecraft account info had to be used. Most may have found that to be intuitive, but I, and possibly others, mistook it as creating an account with Feed The Beast, as such I feel the question should have been answered. Make no mistake though I am very grateful that you took the time to make a video at all.

It just won't open, nothing pops up after I hit launch... and I get the FTB logo animation, and then it just shuts down...

That is exactly why you're launcher isn't working... You need to downgrade to 6

For me it says "System cannot find file specified."

Backup your Waypoints, Saves and Screenshot and then delete all of the FTB files. Then re-install the launcher

When I try to create an account in the launcher, I get an error saying that it is unable to create that account. On my other laptops, it is working perfectly, while all of them use the same system (MAC OS X 10.6.8). I have tried everything from reinstalling the launcher, Minecraft, etc., so now I'm a bit frustrated, please help, if you can.

Have you merged your Minecraft and Mojang accounts? If you have use your email. If not, have a look on the forums.

Try and redownload the launcher. If that doesn't work, look at the forums.
