Affects Version/s: 1.16.40 Hotfix
Fix Version/s: None
Update on 11/27/2020 This bug is still happening for me. Sadly, it has not been fixed.
Months ago, I've been enjoying the Nether Update and all of the features it has had to offer. One day, I tried to boot up Minecraft and it was stuck on a black screen for 5 to 10 minutes (sometimes even longer) and instead of showing the Mojang Studios screen, the game instead crashes. I have been unable to play Minecraft for a very long time now.
Because of this, I have been unable to access my Survival worlds, unable to access my Realms, and I haven't been able to play with my friends. It has been quite a lonely time.
I've tried uninstalling the game and redownloading, I've tried clearing cached data and checking for corrupt data, and I've even tried putting my game on Airplane Mode then booting it up. The game will still crash.
I actually reported this bug during 1.14 on a report titled "Starting Screen Crash 1.14", and thankfully it was fixed. I hope that this bug can be fixed once more.
Down below is a video showing the black screen, and a screenshot of the error screen I get when my game crashes.
Thank you for taking the time to read this report.
