Ive been playing a modpack "GT New Horizons" for a few days now. Ive loaded it up last night to figure out after the long loading time it immediately crashes back to the launcher instead of going to the main menu. Normally before doing this, the program goes into a "Not Responding" state.
I'm tired and frustrated with this launcher. First it wouldn't even launch properly and I had to fix that, then it won't even detect 64 bit. I litteraly reinstalled the launcher and java multiple times, I even installed java online and offline, offline first, then when the launcher was open java online, and selected java online, and it still said it already had that in the launcher settings, still 32-bit. I just want to play a modpack with my friends on their server.
I've played tekkit for a couple thousand hours now and never once encountered the battle I'm going through now. I haven't played in about 6 months or so.
Some things to note:
- I have both java 32 bit and 64 bit runtime environments and I have experimented with a variety of different versions (many recommended on this forum)
-I have 16Gb of RAM, a dedicated GPU and my nVidia driver is up to date. I have also rolled back to previous versions and encountered the same issues.
-With any 64 bit java installed on the PC, Technic Launcher will not launch.
-When I uninstall 64 bit java, launcher starts (in 32 bit) but obviously ram cannot be changed etc... However whilst running, I can install 64 bit java and then change ram settings.
-Packs will download in this case however will not launch even when RAM is set below 6GB. I get a little java pop-up window saying "Hello".
Please please please provide any assistance as I'm not ready to give up just yet!
I can't allocate more than 1 GB of RAM to my technic launcer, and before you comment you need to know that I have a 64bit Win10 and 64 bit Java 8 latest version. I also have plenty of memory available (16 more precise) and a pretty nice pc, my only problem is that I can't load any pack because of the Ram restriction
