Steeled Posted June 29, 2012 Share Posted June 29, 2012 I recently started using a lot of mods and now everything has gone to hell. My Minecraft stopped working, so I deleted all the mods and .minecraft itself. About four days ago, I installed minecraft and technic pack and everything has been working splendid. I deleted all versions of Java on my computer, and installed Java 7 64-bit, which is linked on the home page of www.technicpack.net. I changed my enviromental variables (you know the "Path" one) to the correct location of Java. Everything has been good except two days ago none of my minecraft sounds were playing right, and in Tekkit the sounds worked fine but mAtmos sound mod (or whatever it's called) was not playing anything, even though I had heard it the first time I logged in to Tekkit. So to fix it I just decided to delete everything and start off fresh. Well, unfortunately, minecraft will not download at all. I downloaded the Minecraft.exe off minecraft.net, and after logging in, the download will not complete. It starts to download lwjgl.jar, and gets stuck at around 8%. I tried switching my versions of Java, and it didn't work. Windows Firewall is not enabled on my computer, Norton Internet Security is, so its not like it is blocked or anything. Just for some added and rather interesting info, Spoutcraft is having a hard time getting an internet connection also. TechnicLauncher works fine however. Everything else downloads and works on my computer just fine, but minecraft (and Spoutcraft) are not downloading. Spoutcraft gives me "download failed" and minecraft just doesn't download. I have had minecraft since 2010 and this has never, ever happened to me. I don't see how it could be my internet, as lately my internet has been very fast (speedtest.net and other websites clock my internet download speed at 40 MB/s upload 32 MB/s), and I have not messed with port forwarding or anything of the matter in months! This is very frustrating that I can't get minecraft to download. I tried forwarding port 80, and I did successfully but that didn't help at all. It has not been downloading for 2 days now, even after re-downloading the .exe and many computer restarts. Here is some extra info: Java version: Java 7 64-bit, Version 4 Firewall controlled by: Norton Internet Security 2012 (have had Norton Internet Security since I got my computer, I don't think it is the problem) ISP: Verizon FiOS Computer build: Above awesome Other added info: There is a light on my router (it's a picture of a globe) saying if it is getting an internet connection, it went red for an hour, so I turned it off. After turning it back on, it had a connection, but when friends tried to join my minecraft server, they couldn't join. My external ip had changed! I gave them the new one, all my forwarded ports still worked fine. My external ip has not changed in 2 years, so it was pretty shocking (I have restarted my router many times before). I don't see how this could affect ONLY minecraft and spoutcraft not downloading, but there you go, just in case. I really hope somebody out there knows what's wrong, as this has been going on for two days now and I have not been able to play minecraft.
