You should try reinstalling your Minecraft

Make sure you copy out the saves folder first, then remove the entire.minecraft folder.

    @jacobtohahn I can't help but notice, but you should clean up (edit) some of your previous posts as they're poorly written. Also, avoid posting multiple answers. Instead, edit your previous answer.

As far as I see, it crashes when writing to a file(probably auto-saves). You either have an corrupted save directory or it's read-only or inaccessible or something like that.


I have just uninstalled Minecraft then re-installed it. It does indeed work now. I don't know why I didn't do this before i came on here and asked for help. Regardless, thank you for your help guys. :)

  • If the suggestion to reinstall is what helped you, you should vote up and acccept that answer.
