I've been playing Minecraft on a PC and just got a Mac laptop (OSX 10.7.5). Since the server I regularly play on has numerous mods (using Forge ModLoader), I decided to copy over my .minecraft files. I followed what instructions I could find and placed the
.minecraft folder in my
~/Library/Application Support folder and renamed it to
minecraft. Upon launching Minecraft, the initial launch screen displays properly and I attempt to log in.
However, the Minecraft window proceeds to turn black. It still seems to be "responsive" (as clicking on the window doesn't make it turn gray and show the 'unresponsive' status), but it does not proceed from there. I don't see the Mojang loading screen nor do I make any other progress.
Most advice says to delete my minecraft folder and restart the launcher, but this will result in a fresh (as of now) 1.4.7 installation. The server I play on runs 1.4.6 along with a host of mods, so that option is a no-go.
