When I bring up the launcher, I see the updates and stuff like normal. I try to click on the button that says Play and all it does is say Preparing for a few seconds, then it goes back to saying Play. No matter how many times I press Play, nothing happens. I use a Mac, I have the most recent Launcher and the most recent Java. Here is a copy of the log I get when I press Play:

If you do not have any saves or servers you want to save, skip steps 3

  1. Open Finder
  2. press command+shift+g and enter `~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/
  3. Drag the saves/ folder and server.dat to your desktop (or anywhere you can find them later)
  4. press command+shift+g and enter ~/Library/Application Support/
  5. Delete the folder minecraft/
  6. Launch the launcher and try again.

If this is successful, do steps 1 and 2, and move your saves/ and server.dat back
