I updated my old 2011 MBA to Yosemite when the OS was first released and never had a problem with playing Minecraft on it. Recently, I migrated to a new rMBP 2014 and now - whenever I click on the Minecraft Launcher, it refuses and tells me instead "To open Minecraft, the old Java SE-6 Runtime Version needs to be installed". A clean install of the game did not help, so I googled and found numerous workarounds (where people would install said old Java version), but not a real fix. I don't really want to install outdated software on my new Mac and I'm surprised there is not an actual solution for this bug provided by Mojang. I'm sure there are many Minecraft players on Macs, how are you handling this? Revert back to old Java or sit it out till this is fixed? I also read that some are using a Linux launcher to forgo the dilemma, but - since I'm not tech savvy at all - I don't want to run the Linux OS. Ideas?
