I registered 6 files in minecraft. None of them are available to log into. I even wrote them down but it still won't work. And I have to play offline and multiplayer won't work on offline.

Is this the same issue as this? – user9983 Feb 13 '12 at 21:47
@OrigamiRobot: Seeing both questions are by the same person, I'd say it's pretty likely. – Alexis King Feb 14 '12 at 1:21
I'm not sure it's an ongoing problem, but there have been issues with people selling stolen/hacked "gift codes" to Minecraft from third-party websites. If you were had by a thief, and bought stolen credentials (i.e. didn't buy from, those would likely be canceled. – Theodore Murdock Feb 14 '12 at 6:19
Thats not a great deal of information to go by... more details please? – Ender Feb 14 '12 at 13:22
This is not a dupe, but it's impossible to understand. – Matthew Read Feb 14 '12 at 18:28

Well, judging by the fact that you said "TNT", I assume you mean you want to play on "retail" servers as opposed to "classic" servers.

In order to do this, you need to buy the game. To buy the game, you need to log into the account you created and then press "Buy Game" on Simply creating an account, which I assume is what you were doing, only works on "Classic" servers.

If you did actually buy 6 Minecraft accounts, I suggest contacting Mojang Support.

Ive bought quite a few copies of the game, but only ever needed one account for that... No idea why you would need 6 of them.. The login server has never had an issue with me running two clients at once from the same machine (So I can copy a creative world creation into my living world :D) – James Feb 13 '12 at 22:28
