I've been fighting with this error most of today, and I'm giving up. I've updated Java, run both 64 and 32 bit versions, updated all my video drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled Minecraft/Twitch/modpacks. Changed which directories things were saved to. The game seems to launch at first, goes through part of the loading screen, then I get this crash partway through.
To note, I've never had this issue when playing on my Mac laptop, but wanted to start playing on the PC that we hooked up to our 65" TV.
The launcher is using the version of Java that comes with the launcher:
# JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_51-b16) (build 1.8.0_51-b16)
You'll need to manually update the Java version in the launcher if you've installed a higher version on the PC.
Thank you! I use the twitch launcher,and in the settings I have it set to always use the latest version, and the only one I have installed in the machine is the 64 bit latest (I’ll have to get the exact version # when I get back home.)
Would I have to change that setting to the particular version I want?
