won't open past logo?? (mac)

Question

I'm trying to open the launcher, but once it gets to the logo, it freezes. I've tried leaving it and restarting my laptop, but to no avail. I have downloaded java, so I don't think that's the problem.

Uninstall java 9 and install java 64 bit java 8.
For details you can visit our #tech-help channel on discord, there's a tutorial specifically for mac in the pinned messages.

Pro tip: read the #rules channel before you start typing ;)

java version "9.0.4"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 9.0.4+11)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 9.0.4+11, mixed mode)

 

I have the same problem, and this is the output I got from the terminal.

Java 9 and java10 will not work with forge or our launcher. Install java 8

How do I uninstall version 10? It just gives me an error saying: Newer Version Exists, and I cannot find the file anywhere.

I have the solution. First, open launchpad. Navigate to Automator. Open it. Then, where it says "Choose a type for your document" click, Application. Hit continue. Now, where it says Name in the search box, search Run Shell Script. Drag that over to the right. Now, in the new text box, get rid of cat, and type:

export JAVA_HOME=`/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.8`
cd /Users/                        
java -jar TechnicLauncher.jar

Where it says Users/ put the directory of the folder that TechnicLauncher.jar is in. Now, go up to file, and save. Name it whatever you want, and save it. Now open it, and it should run!
