    The graphics card info was the critical part. Well, that and that it's a Mac; they can be weird.

    I did a bit of research, and it's not looking good. Apparently the Radeon X1600 series doens't support all the OpenGL 2.1 features.

    Here's something to check out:
    http://www.realtech-...ew/download.php

    (the Mac version will take you to the App Store to get it; it's free)

    I tested it out, and it informed me that the Mac Mini I bought for cheap off eBay has better specs than the machine I built as a gaming system five years ago. That's depressing. :( Also, for Windows users, it may not report your CPU type correctly; it got one of mine wrong. Then again, that's not what we're using it for.

    Anyway, you can try a driver update -- it's possible, though not probable, that a newer driver will support OpenGL 2.1. If not, unfortunately, you're up way up the flowing water with a serious paddle deficiency. I don't know much about the innards of MacBooks, but with most notebooks, it's difficult or impossible to swap out graphics cards.

    Minecraft looks "old" but it's not. While the look is deliberately retro, the system requirements are all too modern. I'm hoping the release version will be more efficient than the snapshot, because I really want to try out the Amplified world generation, and my system can't handle it. (though I should try on the Mac -- turns out, it might!)

    If you have to upgrade ... well, check eBay. You can find off-lease computers for decent prices there, ones that were leased for a term to a school or business, then sold surplus to a reseller. That's what my Mac was, and it's been excellent.

    I actually downloaded this, XD It says it supports 2.1 fully, but 3.0 and later is not supported. So, could it be on Mojangs side? (after all it is a Snapshot. So i think it will be able to support it, but the Radeon Graphic Card is saying it only supports 2.0, whereas the Apple Software Renderer can support 2.1, Im confused but on track. heres an image.

    If you can't update to OpenGL2.1 than you may need a new computer. If you can't afford one or you just don't want to drop some dough than you could always play the outdated versions (1.6.4 and below)

    I downloaded a thing from the Mac App Store, The FPS for OpenGL 2.1 is just 100 short from OpenGL 2.0, so i think ill have to do some searching :/

    Terrible topic title. Read my post on the subject (links in profile). But anyway ...

    I looked it up, and OpenGL 2.1 has been out for seven years. If your computer can't support it, I'm really surprised it can run Minecraft.

    What do you have, computer-wise? (especially the graphics card) If you tell me, I'll see what I can find.


    Well, everyone who needs to know, i have a MacBook Pro, 2006, with ATYRadeonX1600 Graphic Card, 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo, with 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Also a 32x Color LCD. :/ Anything i need to say elsewise?

    Okay, Get this, after playing minecraft for so long, it tells me that i have to update to OpenGL 2.1, apparently, i have no such thing. So I search the internet on how to get it, supposedly i need a new graphics card. :/


    Bottom Line. Comment what you think about how minecraft is updating to a new OpenGL.

    Your error looks like something internal. Is there a file called "error.log" in your group manager folder?

    I don't know what your second file is.. are you trying to use PEX and GroupManager? That won't work.

    There was also an error in your global groups file. Here is a fixed version: http://pastie.org/8295888

    My pleasure.


    The second file is either Groups, or users.yml,

    But what could be wrong with my laptop that i use for hosting?
    Heres my laptop specs,


    MAC OS X : Snow Leopard (10.6.8)
    MacBook Pro (2006)
