I have been trying to run pixelmon for minecraft. I have been able to successfully do this until today. I load up minecraft like normal and press play, the bar does it's thing and it appears to have loaded. Then it just freezes. I have a dimmed play button and nothing happens. I tried this with normal versions and uninstalled the mods. I also redownloaded the launcher. It gets weirder. I had this same problem on my laptop and my desktop! I don't know why this is because my internet is very good. One thing to note even though it might not be relevant the change log wont load either.

Thank you for reading this giant question. Hope you guys can help!!!

Try doing a clean install of Minecraft (back up your saves and delete your .minecraft folder). Failing that... I'm not quite certain. –  Unionhawk Dec 5 '13 at 2:15

From the error, you're getting a 503. That usually means the server borked. Maybe try it again in a little bit? –  Frank Dec 5 '13 at 4:40

Error 503 means that the server is not available at the moment. Mojang might be having a bit of trouble with their servers.

The most you can do right now is just try again later.

If you've got any sort of parental filter, that's probably what's blocking it.

The file it's trying to download is http://resources.download.minecraft.net/a2/a2dbb90f23b0babe7c569ceca28db49d0c112714
If you look closely at this random number, you'll see that it has a word in it that probably trips a parental filter.

http://resources.download.minecraft.net/a2/a2dbb90f23b0babe7c569ceca28db49d0c112714
The offending word is right........................... ^^^^ there.

A way around this is to download it with SSL (encryption): https://resources.download.minecraft.net/a2/a2dbb90f23b0babe7c569ceca28db49d0c112714
You'll most likely see this big scary warning about an SSL error that mentions *.cloudfront.net. Ignore this error and continue, then copy the file to

  • Windows: %APPDATA%\.minecraft\assets\objects\a2\a2dbb90f23b0babe7c569ceca28db49d0c112714
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/assets/objects/a2/a2dbb90f23b0babe7c569ceca28db49d0c112714
  • Linux: ~/.minecraft/assets/objects/a2/a2dbb90f23b0babe7c569ceca28db49d0c112714

Launch Minecraft again and all will be well!

With the lack of a dev reading or crash report, my best guess would be that minecraft is having troubles getting the natives for 1.6+, as I have seen quite a bit of today. Try running 1.5.2 and see if that works. If not, It's something else.

Try what Unionhawk suggested also. That usually works.
