To start off this post, I am not considered a noob. I have had minecraft for several months, modded the game to the point it was unrecognizable, and been inside and out of the internal code. I am not here posting some easy problem that could be solved by reading a simple FAQ. So please do not simply post " Redownload Minecraft " or " Delete Meta-Inf ."
My problem is simply that I cannot start minecraft. The launcher is not working for me. To go in depth.
My minecraft folder is a mess. I have several .jar files for diffrent mods and different versions of minecraft. I have always known one day that the folder would be too conflicting, and eventually crash. Yesterday, I downloaded and installled the Technic Pack for Minecraft 1.8. I installed it the same way I did for other mods. Backup minecraft.jar and stored it with my other .jars, download the new mod correctly, and played it. Everything was running smoothly for quite a while. Later, my game froze. I wasn't shocked, mods have a tendency to do this. But it wasn't just my game, it was my entire computer. So I manually restarted it. Upon start up, I tried minecraft again with the Technic Pack. I changed my usual settings of Fancy, Max FPS, and everything to the max to the most basic setting possible. After an hour, my computer froze again. I then turned my computer off, and let it cool off. About 4 hours later, I started it back up. I didn't go on minecraft for fear of a crash. After a while, I tried minecraft again. My FPS was rediculous. I was getting less then 1FPS ( I honestly didn't think this was possible. ). I opened my menu, and it rose back to my usual 200FPS or so. Curious, I went back to the game and the lag returned. I opened my menu again, same high FPS. I changed my settings again, to see if this would resolve the problem. Nothing. I knew at that point I would need to uninstall my mods. I went to my minecraft folder and cleared everything that couldn't be redownloaded. Only thing left was My saves, ( I deleted my technicpack map ) texturepacks, options, serverfiles, and lastlogin. I then tried to start my minecraft launcher. It would load a few seconds, then nothing. I clicked it again, and again, nothing. I then ran it as Administrator. Nothing. I opened task manager to see if the process would even open. It didn't. I then casually redownloaded the launcher, and replaced it. Nothing again, which I found this very odd. At this point, I backed up my entire .minecraft folder, stored it else where, and deleted the orginal. I started the launcher again, and this time, it broke my speakers. After 2 hours or so, I fixed them, redownloaded the launcher again, and nothing still. I did everything I could in my power to fix my problem, and used everything in my computer knowledge to fix my issue, and nothing helped. At this point, the only thing that I think could be wrong is that I missed something really obvious, or its on Mojang's end. If you have any solution, please help me out here.
What do you think I did for the couple of hours letting my computer cool down?
But in all seriousness, me and a couple of my real life friends who moved away play on a server together. Its really the only place we really talk anymore, and it would be great to play with them again.
