Fixing frequent crashes in Minecraft

Update: Notch has increased the amount of memory allocated to Minecraft when you start the game up using the .exe launcher. Following my advice below is no longer necessary.

I’m not much of a gamer, but I have been intrigued by Minecraft since seeing some of it’s videos online. I promptly purchased the game to see what it is like. Unfortunately, after a while it started to crash within 5-10 minutes of starting the game up, and the screen would just go black.

Being that Minecraft is written in Java, and I work for Oracle in the Java organisation, I thought I’d see if I could improve it. After observing the memory usage (which you can see in game by holding F3), it seemed like there just wasn’t enough memory being allocated to minecraft. To fix this you need to create a batch file (i.e. create a text document, and rename it to end in .bat), and put the following text inside it.

@echo off
cd %AppData%\.minecraft
start javaw -Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -Djava.library.path=".\bin\natives" -classpath "bin\minecraft.jar;bin\jinput.jar;bin\lwjgl.jar;bin\lwjgl_util.jar" net.minecraft.client.Minecraft

This batch file basically tells Minecraft to use more memory than what it is given by default. On my machine, this really helps to prevent the crashing, and also has the nice side-effect of improving performance due to minimising the need for frequent garbage collection. I have only tested this on my Windows 7 machine, so your mileage may vary – let me know how it works for you. This is definitely a Windows-only fix, although it’s trivial for someone to create a shell script for Mac OS and Linux based on the above.

  1. Thank you for posting this. Unfortunately, it didn’t work for me. Mine still crashes, always shortly after the sound cuts out.

      1. it doesnt matter where you put the bat file

        1.open notepad
        2.copy-paste what jonathan posted
        3.save it as “name”.bat
        4.double-click it as if you would run a normal .exe-file

  2. hey thanks i tried this and it helped, a bit though.

    My problem is whenever I log on, I get about a good 20 minutes of time to play. Then my UI gets all trippy. To clarify, it seems that pixils in my game are going nuts, solid colors in wierd patterns just pop up everywhere and then after i move from a place to see if i can run away from it, it gets worse. Its hard to describe but i hope you can get a mental image.

    Thanks and sorry for grammer was in a rush =)

  3. ok i found something on my desktop that gets added to it after it crashes. Its a batch document with about a java runtime fatal malfunction. Here it is: (sorry its long)

  4. @James Thank you for adding this!! The same thing happened to me a while back, but stopped happening so I couldn’t upload it 🙂

  5. I am having a similar problem. When I try to log into minecraft, it allows me, but as soon as it finishes loading I get the black screen. No gameplay, no nothing. So, please tell me where to put this .bat file so that I can hopefully resolve this!

  6. @David … Thanks for the email adress

    @Natasha … Thank you, however is ther something you did or happend with your computer that may have possibly fixed this error?

  7. I have been having the black screen issue where out of the blue BAM black screen crash!

    To start, I updated my graphics drivers, updated to the latest version of sun-java 6, and deleted and re-installed minecraft.

    I have no knowledge of if minecraft saves anything onto my computer as I cannot find anything, but those are the steps I have taken so far.

    I have tried your method of making a .bat file, but I get the error message “Windows cannot find ‘javaw’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, then try again.”

    I copied and pasted the text word for word and no success.

    Any ideas yet or fixes for the black screen issue?

  8. i have made the text document with the stuff inside and i want to know if you do anything with it from there! like moveing it into the minecraft folder!

  9. Minecraft is incessantly crashing for me: It would seem there’s something funny going on in the OpenGL stuff:

  10. i keep getting an error saying “windows cannot find “javaw”. make sure you type the name correctly and then try again.” any help?

  11. @lu You have to add your “/bin” to the “path” environment variable, or simply write the full path to javaw.exe into the script.

  12. Many thanks for your solution ! Now I can play the solo mode without crashes !
    But there’s a problem. When I launch the file, it skips the login screen. So, when I wanna play in multi, it says “Bad Login”. Java says “Player is null” and I would like to know if there’s a way to put the login and password in the .bat file.

    Thank you !

  13. David, can you give an example how to add the bin and path as you mention the 8 Feb? Im getting same above error on my w7 and tested all kinds of compability mode et.c. Worked like a charm in my XP Sp3 and would be great now aswell, lovely game!

    1. Here is how you can add you java bain folder to the path:
      – From the Start Menu, right-click My Computer and click Properties.
      – In the System Properties window, click on the Advanced tab.
      – In the Advanced section, click the Environment Variables button.
      – Finally, in the Environment Variables window, highlight the Path variable in the Systems Variable section and click the Edit button.
      – Navigate to the end of the field’s content, add a semicolon (this is a path separator) and add your java bin folder path with applestrofes (eg: “C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_10\bin”)
      – If you click OK, you should be fine. If not maybe a restart required.

      That’s it. 🙂

  14. Hi!
    Since this seems to be a very ‘common’ issue not just for me, may I ask for any hints to get this fixed for me too?

    I either had this problem (minecraft crashes with a black window [only on SMP]) on my previously 32bit W7-Ultimate as well as on my actual 64bit W7HP.

    I’m using the .exe and it occours mostly while riding minecarts, but on other occasions as well.

    Quiet annoying as you can imagine: it eliminates the benefit of minecarts as I have to look for the lost cart all the time and bring it back in motion.

    Any help welcome!
    Kind regards
    Max

  15. My log that comes when it crashes “out of the game”, I also get a log sometimes “inside the game”

  16. Hi, I tried the .bat files but this skip the launcher so I can’t connect to my account to play on multipalyer server… Is it possible to do the same and not skip the launcher?

    (sorry for my english i’m french)

  17. It’s still happening to me, and it happens more quickly since 1.3_01. Why in the world, does MC’s memory requirement need to continually grow? At some point, shouldn’t the blocks that are now longer referenced get freed? Shouldn’t MC reach a point of equilibrium?

  18. my screen still keeps going black…
    I have 2 gigs of ram, but when I press F3 it says I only use about 15% of 456MB or something like that… and then after a minute or two it just goes black again, then I try and close minecraft and then suddenly it says ‘java not working, close?’ or something like that…
    I tried your fix, then I use 15% of about one gig of ram, but that is still not what my PC has, and it shouldn’t be a problem I think…
    I run windows vista with an intel E6650 dual core @2.66 Ghz
    and 2 gigabytes of ram, also an Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT…
    I hope you can help me, I’m getting pissed after buying the game 🙂

  19. Hi, I’m having the same problem, except the game doesn’t crash completely out of the blue. I am usually warned by a blank java console opening, giving me about fifteen or twenty seconds, then the game crashes along with the console.

    Now, when I run the game using the batch file, the game still crashes after five or ten minutes, but the previously blank console has text:

    Console opened at 21:48:00 14-Mar-11
    CreateRmSysmemSurface: __glNvRmAllocMemory64 failed 42

    The batch file hasn’t helped.

    1. I’ve got the same thing, a console window opening before crash. It opens, starting with the one line “CreateRmSysmem….failed at 42” and as I progress in game, more and more “CreateRmSysmem….failed at 42” pop up. Once fifteen or twenty appear, then BOOM. Crash.

      I know next to nothing about Java, and what on earth does this failure mean? There’s the 64 in there. That doesn’t mean this works only for 64-bit machines, does it? I’ve got a 32-bit.

      It gets very annoying having 2 or 3 minutes of game time then… poof. Sometimes it gives me time to save, other times I have less than a second of warning. Are there any more possibilities, any more solutions

  20. Hey i tried and .bat thing, and it worked then out of the blue instead of a black screen i got a white screen…

  21. yea I’m having this exact problem, i load minecraft 1.4 from the new launcher and it goes black for a second then crashes and an error message appears on my desktop, several people have already posted it, i will post it again. i have already deleted minecraft several times, reinstalled java, got older versions of java, ran the .jar file through cmd prompt, tried compatibility modes. noting works it seems. wtf do it do?

  22. I had the same black screen problem, and got the same “Windows cannot fin Javaw”-error when launching the scriptso I tried editing the original .bat file to

    @echo off
    cd %AppData%\.minecraft
    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java” -Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -Djava.library.path=”.\bin\natives” -classpath

    “bin\minecraft.jar;bin\jinput.jar;bin\lwjgl.jar;bin\lwjgl_util.jar” net.minecraft.client.Minecraft

    ..and there it worked out fine. Though it does not start up with Minecraft Launcher where to enter account details and see update history so I have no idea if it just uses the one already written or just no-one..

    BTW: The script can be placed on the desktop wherever you think fits, it doesn’t really matter since the path to the concerning file is written in the .bat file.
    The “C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java” path should also be changed to what its like on your pc, this is just my windows 7 based pc’s setups.
