New launcher won't launch previous versions (1.5.2) on OSX (newest version works fine).


    • Icon: Bug Bug
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • 1.0.8
    • 1.0.6
    • None
    • OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard); Java ?
    • Unconfirmed

      The new launcher works fine using the 10.6.1 format. However, it will not allow me to successfully launch a new profile using the previous (10.5.1/10.5.2) unmodded versions of minecraft.

      Want to use the older version to access pvp servers still running 10.5.2; unable to find the 'old' launcher on Mojang site.

      When trying to launch an alternate profile that specifies one of the previous versions of minecraft it crashes. A blank (black) screen appears, then disappears and an error message is received. The Development Console window then displays the following error text:

      Client> Client asked for parameter: server
      Client> 2013-07-01 19:27:54 [CLIENT] [INFO] LWJGL Version: 2.9.0
      Client> Invalid memory access of location 0x28 rip=0x125a88b37
      Game ended with bad state (exit code 139)
      Deleting /Users/bettscol/Library/Application Support/minecraft/versions/1.5.2/1.5.2-natives-1372724872210792000

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Create profile with vanilla release version 1.5.2
      2. Attempt to play using that profile
      3. Window (blank) appears.
