Installation: Mac

Step 1

Install JDK 8 or greater on your Mac. Make sure that your JAVA_HOME environment variable is pointing to Java JDK 8 installation (howto) OR that Java JDK 8 is set as the default Java runtime for launching Java JAR files.

Oracle: JDK Installation for Mac OS X

Make sure that you have Java 8u172 or higher (but needs to be Java 8) as default Java software. You can do this by typing java -version in the terminal.

% java -version java version "1.8._____" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_06-ea-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.2-b04, mixed mode)

You also need to have JavaFX installed. If you have Oracle's Java, it is already included in the standard installation.

Step 2

Download MCreator's ZIP file for Mac and Linux and extract it to the preferred folder. We recommend you to use separate folders for each MCreator installation.

Step 3

Click on the MCreator.jar file to run MCreator. Wait until MCreator completes the initial setup. This might take 10 - 20 minutes. If something goes wrong, don't hesitate to contact us to help you fix your bug.
