I've just downloaded the client and when i open the .exe the start up doesnt have the usual news crap and update features
when i try to enter my username and pass. it says that i cant reach the minecraft server or some crap like that, and even the "play offline" option is not available. it says (not dowloaded)
If your internet is working fine, then, as suggested above, reinstall minecraft. An easy way to do this is to go to your start menu, and type "%appdata%" (without the speech marks obviously). You should be in your "Roaming" file. Find your ".minecraft" file, and delete it.
Now you have deleted your minecraft client, time to get a new one. Simply load up minecraft, type in your username and password, and login. If it's fine, then thumbs up. If not, it may be a java problem. If all else fails, contact Mojang. I hope I helped you,
i fix the problem, I basically re-install the game and reboot. I have like 58 updates when it start again, it works fine
but thansk all for your suggestions
