Ok, so ever sence a couple updates ago, I have been unable to launch Minecraft through Steam. When I do, it creates i document in the location Minecraft is in called hs_err_pid(4 numbers). I am clueless as to why this is happening. Any suggestions?

Thats an error log, obviously something has changed, try force updating minecraft, deleting it then putting it back on steam, and try a complete reinstall of minecraft if none of the above worked.



Why are you trying to run it through steam? Is there any benefit to that?

Well, I've pretty much tried everything that you mentioned in your post, and nothing. Would it help to post what it says in the error file?

Done any modding to your game?
From what I've read Steam will only recognize Minecraft if it's vanilla besides texture packs.
Once I started mod use Steam won't pick up MC as MC.

Running MC through Steam just allows you to use the overlay which is quite handy and lets you chat with others via Steam.

Thanks, I'll try this.
Ok, so I tried deleting my .minecraft folder, which reset the entire thing, and it is till not working. I can't remember the last time it had worked. Should I post what the error messages say?
I also thought that this would be a better plan the the main Survival Section.
