When trying single player mode, a Java error appears:

Internal Exception: java.lang.ClassCastException: bit cannot be cast to fm

However I can play on multiplayer just fine. I'm running Minecraft 1.7.2 and have no mods installed.

Has anyone else had this issue?

  • I did some searching and it looks like you've typed out the error message wrong. Could you please carefully retype it so that it matches the error exactly, or just take a screenshot of the error message and post that in your question (using the edit button)? – SevenSidedDie Oct 29 '13 at 15:20

Try this fix from http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/2061396-172-error-when-loading-world/

  • Go to main menu
  • Go to options
  • Go to video options
  • Set render distance to 2 chunks
  • Put FPS on unlimited

  • Those changes allowed a new world to be generated but later when trying to reload it, the same error appears. Its updated to the current version of Minecraft and no mods are installed. – user58464 Oct 29 '13 at 12:33

  • @user58464 You can delete comments. Hover over and a small X will appear at the end. – SevenSidedDie Oct 29 '13 at 22:27
  • ah ok hadn't noticed it. This laptops not aged well, old graphics card warning shows in main Minecraft menu. I used to have to adjust graphics setting in control panel to do MC. Though that doesn't need changed anymore with the recent version, adjusting it doesn't fix this either. May just end getting a new system in a few months. Although weirdly it plays on a multi server just fine. – user58464 Oct 29 '13 at 23:45
