Game freezes after about 2 minutes (WinXP SP3)
Posted 30 August 2010 - 09:01 PM
I searched the forums, and found some helpful stuff, but nothing's worked so far. Most threads have a slightly different (but still pretty similar) problem, so I figured I'd open a new one.
Some more info: it's a 2006 IBM Thinkpad T60p, with an Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 @ 2,00GHz each and 2GB of RAM, and an ATI Mobility FireGL V5250 as a video card which has 256MB of memory. I'm running Windows XP SP3. As far as I know, all drivers are up to date. I also just updated Java.
DxDiag gave me no problems. Here's the log if anyone wants it.
I tried removing everything and reinstalling, but the problem persisted.
I did the md5 checksum thing and there were some errors. These were the only ones.
I also did a disk cleanup on the drive Windows is installed on, and redownloaded the launcher. This didn't help either.
I tried deleting the app data folders, reinstalling, and installing the stuff boran_blok posted here, but that didn't work either.
The reason I'm posting is not just that I'm hoping there's a fix, but I figure I'm probably not the only one who has this problem, so feel free to post in this thread if the same thing is happening to you. Also, if the disk cleanup thing worked, and you're having the same problem, then here's your fix! I'll probably come back with an edit in like 5 minutes after the game has probably crashed.
Anyway, I would be incredibly grateful for any and all advice. The guys in the IRC help channel have already been great, by the way, so it was a very warm welcome into the community.

(also sort of a bump so more people see this)

Here's what I found out on my own, if anyone want's to continue it then go for it.
In TskManager when you run the game from the browser version you end up getting these services or processes in your tskmanager: java.exe, jp2launcher.exe and jusched.exe. However when you try to run it and get an error it seems to be only running: java.exe, jp2launcher.exe. I even tried to run the jusched.exe with the other files and it still didn't work.

So I don't know what's changed, but it's a change for the better, at least.

Sorry to say but nope. All the progress I've ever made with this is documented right here in this thread. I sorta gave up, anyway. Let me know if you figure something out please!

Er...you did notice that the last reply to this thread was back in October, right? >.>

I've uninstalled java and reinstalled. I've uninstalled video card drivers and reinstalled. These did not help.
For a little while, I was having some success by changing my native screen resolution to 1024x768; this seemed to delay the crashing so that I could play for a couple of hours before shut down. Also, I tried toggling the hardware Wireless Internet switch to Off; this seemed to help, too. This method was good enough for me until Minecraft scared the crap out of me by losing all progress on my world after a random shutdown. Eventually the world showed up again (don't ask how; i have no idea).
Anyway, I've found no solutions, just wanted to document that another person has this issue on the T60p hardware. I've resorted to just using a different PC to get my minecraft fix.
