Minecraft 1.2 came out earlier this week, and soon after was followed by another bugfix patch, putting us at 1.2_01. However, the game is still quite unstable for me:
- I am unable to go more than 10 minutes without minecraft crashing to a black screen. The program becomes unresponsive, and needs to be closed via the task manager. Because of this chunks are not saved (irritating, to say the least) so I find myself having to constantly hit "esc" to manually save the chunks for fear of losing progress in my world.
- Sometimes, when starting up the program, nothing on the initial log-in screen can be clicked, and the program is unresponsive. Eventually, it may or may not replace the log-in screen with a "cannot connect to minecraft.net" dialog.
Am I the only one experiencing such difficulties? If others are having the same problems (I wasn't able to turn up anything recent with google alone), is there a way to fix this temporarily before another bugfix patch, 1.2_02, is sent out?
