      Description

      Game crashed when selecting a resource pack (that I was trying to get working, but was not formatted correctly)

      *What I expected to happen was... that the game wouldn't crash?

      What actually happened was...:
      It crashed.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Put a malformed resource pack in the resources folder
      2. Maybe the game will crash when you activate it (it didn't crash every time)

      What's needed (probably):

      Errors from reading malformed resource packs should be caught and logged - it would be nice if the logs or error message would let the user know something about what went wrong (I knew because I was actively working on making my first resource pack – but a standard user downloading and installing my pack might not realize that my malformed pack was causing the issue.)
