    When I press the "Play" button on my Minecraft launcher, the game won't open! I think this is a cause of a 1.11.2 bug, or a :mad: file error. It happened two days ago, and I've tried every thing, launching and re-launching Minecraft, deleting and re-installing, and doing other complicating things
    Can someone help me ?

    (i tried to do a pastebin) but that dont work because the only thing i get is : Waiting for log output...

    Help me pls

    Repeat clicking the play, it might suddenly launch.
    If it doesn't, go to %appdata% and take out the versions you have DOWNLOADED, such as Optifine. Then take out the singleplayer worlds and texture packs. I'm not sure what else to take out, then you should delete .minecraft and download the launcher again, there it should work again.

    That is my way of doing it.

    This happens to me daily, what I do is open the task manager click "processes" and then look for Minecraft then there should be 2, just click "end process" on one c:

    This is a bug with the new launcher.
    As @Donovann mentioned here, after clicking play, the launcher will close but won't start Minecraft. If you open Task Manager and go to the Processes tab, there should be two MinecraftLauncher.exe's. Right-click it and click End Process. Then Minecraft should boot up.

    To prevent this from happening in the future, open the launcher and click Settings. You should see an option to keep the launcher open while the game is running. Select that. That'll make it so when you hit play, one of the following will happen:
    • The launcher won't respond, and if you close it, Minecraft will boot up like normal (most likely).
    • The launcher will stay open and Minecraft will boot up just fine.
    I hope this helped! ^-^

    He'd then have to reinstall it every time which wouldn't be the best thing to do.
