(FIX) (Mac) Technic launcher fail to start up (Opensans error + others)

Recommended Posts

Alright, so I had the problem of where the Technic Launcher was not updating correctly and it was not downloading the OpenSans asset

THIS IS A FIX FOR MAC AS OF May 7th, 2016!

(It worked for me, so it should work for others too.)

 

Computer specs:

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012)

Processor 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7

Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

OSX Yosemite 10.10 (14A389)

 Java Version 8 Update 91 (April 19, 2016)

 

 

 

Steps to fix:

1) Close the erroring launcher, and make sure that Minecraft is close, just to be safe

 

2) Navigate to one of your folders on your mac, then click on the button that says "Path" in the  left hand corner (upper/slight right)

 

3) Click on the folder that is called MACINTOSH HD

 

4) Press (CMD+SHIFT+G) on your keyboard and paste in the path

"Users/(username here)/Library/Application Support/technic/"

with your username in it instead of "(username here)"

 

5) You will be brought to your technic folder. If you have anything you want to save, save it now.

 

6) Delete your "technic" folder in the "Application Support" folder, we are doing a clean install.

 

7) Run the technic launcher again and it should install fine.

--------

 

If it didn't work, then idk what is wrong with your computer. Don't ask me, but rather ask yourself. I don't know your computer and I am too lazy to provide further tech support.

I am not responsible for damage done to your computer. You chose to follow my guide.

 

Thank you

      I am using the portable version of the technic launcher on mac (on an sd card) and this morning I was playing lapito's galacticraft, closed it, then I reopened the technic launcher a few hours later, and it only showed the official technic modpacks, but even they weren't downloaded, I check the technique folder, all the modpacks are still there, and the saves too. I don't know what to do.

      Steps to remedy white screen after press play issue for build 4.493 OR Modpack fails to launch (applicable to any modpack) reopening launcher instead
      This topic is constantly being updated so feel free to check back on it.
      1. Sometimes logging off and logging back in solves a lot of program related issues.
         If logging off didn't work then it is a different software / config issue.
      2. Ensure you have the latest version of java. A lot of people may suggest to use java 7.
         However I would not recommend this. Reasons being:
         a. Java 8 contains the framework for java 7. each version is usually an improvement or addition.
         b. For me java 7 simply crashes my modpacks. Either it makes them unlaunchable or they crash too randomly.
      3. Some people recently have reported that downgrading java has fixed their problem. In which case uninstall and install java a version down at a time until you find what fixes it for you.
      4. Ensure you have the latest graphics driver.
         I have noticed that this problem tends to pop its head up the moment that a new graphics driver version is available but I haven't installed it yet.
         From a programmers perspective. And I have reason to believe that it has been like this for decades now (ever since ver.1 possibly)... 
         They most likely have a piece of code in the driver that literally reads as:
         
      if @DriverVer not @LatestVer then $error
         To throw a logged error without a message would be a much more subtle approach than just throwing an error with message.
         This would overload the CPU/GPU silently if it is repeated and also has the potential to slow down our HDDs from excessive read/write.
         I have reason to believe that this is done to (gently) force us to keep our drivers updated.
         I mean after all... outdated drivers never crash computers... they just simply make it run sslllooowwwww.
         So if you happen to notice similar behavior as soon as there is a driver update available (for any device), you will know why.
         Nothing that any of us can do really except to just keep our drivers up to date.
      This is from the knowledge an ex I.T. Technician Assistant
      5. Ensure you have allocated enough RAM in Launcher options under java settings. I would recommend at least half of your available RAM to leave enough for system operations.
      6. If you have a 64 bit system. use x64 java not x82. Using mismatched java can cause all sorts of problems. Why? Because your CPU / GPU needs to work in ways its not supposed to So in a way this can also cause blue screens!
      7. Sometimes just closing the launcher, making sure that all instances of javaw.exe are closed in task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del). and then reopening can solved white screen.
      8. Some times the white screen just needs a little patience. no longer than 10 minutes ideally however.
      9.
       

      Hope this tutorial helps, and if you guys find any other remedies for this most recent build feel free to post them below. I may or may not edit this post to include them. See if i have time but no promises ;). Will add any other fixes I find that are also common answers. If you feel any of them should be credited to anyone in particular do tell me ;). But in the interest of preventing Accidental Topic Spamming please PM me this info and I will do my best to update it ASAP.
       
      Edit: I think this should get pinned :).

      I installed the TechnicLauncher.jar file, and I have Java on my Mac, but whenever I go to install it, I believe what happens is it crashes. When I first open the installer it shows me the window to install, and then when I click install, it closes out. Every time I open the file after that, it opens, then closes, then opens again for a bit longer, and then closes. I can't really pinpoint what's wrong, can someone help me out?

      When I open techniclauncher java opens then closes then reopens and closes. I have java installed and can run other .jar files perfectly. I don't know why i cant play on technic.
