ok I cant play Minecraft for more than a few min before it crashes. This is the error report... ok maybe I don't know how to do spoiler tags.

I don't see an error attached to that post but usually when Minecraft breaks it's because Java needs to be updated.

Check this page out for a walkthru.

You know every day I see a damn java thing thats trying to update itself but I just ignore it because its annoying. And whenever I try to let it do its thing it crashes.

@Devil240Z:

That's kinda like seeing the check engine light in your car flashing at you every day and ignoring it because it's annoying.

Eventually something's gonna break. In this case, just run the Java updater and you should be all set, thankfully :)

Make sure java is the right version too, 64bit or 32 bit depending on your operating system.

Minecraft leaks memory like a mother if you don't have the right version of java. If you can't be bothered to check, just set your view distance to anything other than far, then you should be good.

Yeah but you take it into the shop and the mechanic just shrugs walks away.

I'd suggest taking your car to a new mechanic ;)

Why do these java people have to make updating it so complex. I cant figure this out...

Minecraft kept crashing for me too, kept saying it ran out of memory.

I found out that i need McMemory for minecraft for it to run. What it does is limit the memory that minecraft can use, so it doesnt keep initiating all of it. That fixed the problem for me.
