I've got a problem I could do with some advice about.
Since first installing Minecraft a few weeks ago I'm getting a Login Failed from the launcher. The email username and password are definately correct and will log me into http://minecraft.net/. I've created a new user, which also logs into http://minecraft.net/ correctly, but this fails in Minecraft as well. I created these accounts by following the link provided from the Minecraft launcher screen.
This identical error happening on both OSX Mountain Lion and Windows 7 (running latest Java 7 SE - JRE). Java version on OSX is:
java version "1.6.0_37"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-11M3909)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.12-b01-434, mixed mode)
I'm running on a simple home network with no abnormal firewall rules or content blocking.
Running from the console doesn't show any useful trace other than .minecraft not found error (which I assume is normal since I've never managed to log in successfully).
Minecraft runs succesfully using the browser plugin.
This looks like username / password issue but given I've two accounts, and both login to the minecraft.net but fail on the Minecraft app on two platforms, I'm not so sure.
Any ideas how I can debug this further? I'm an experienced software developer if it helps.
Happy to buy this app, but don't want to if I can't get it to work!
