I recently downloaded Minecraft on a new computer (a Mac OSX) and it was working for a week until, all the sudden, Opening the game just immediately exits and a pop-up comes up and says

Minecraft Lancher quit unexpectedly

Clicking "Report to Apple" is just says this

(I couldn't fit the rest)

I've tried everything,

  • Installing java, (Its up to date)
  • Installing OpenGL, (Which apparently, has no download for Macs)
  • reinstalling the game.

  • Do you have a Minecraft crash log that you can post? – Schism Feb 21 '17 at 23:26
  • Unfortunately you cut off the relevant part of the crash log. Please edit your question to include the whole file. I might know the problem, but need to be sure about it. – dly Feb 22 '17 at 9:19

Just download the old minecraft launcher at http://launcher.mojang.com/download/Minecraft_legacy.dmg

At the title screen it should say that java is outdated and that you will need to install java 8 even though you have Java 8 installed. Do not listen to this for now. I am also running the exact same version of macOS 10.8.5

The same thing happened to me. I think it was my antivirus that screwed the new minecraft launcher.
