Issue description


I recently installed MCreator on a MacBook Pro with "Mac OS Mojave (10.14.2)".

But, during the installation, I encountered an error in the 3rd step of the configuration ...

So here is a copy of the error code:


Executing gradle command: cleanCache clean setupDecompWorkspace --refresh-dependencies
Build info: MCreator 1.8.1, 64-bit, 8192 MB, Mac OS X - bash, JVM 1.8.0_191, JAVA_HOME: Default (not set)
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
* What went wrong:
Could not determine java version from '11.0.1'.
* Try:

Thank you for your support !

Issue comments

You are using Java 11, where MCreator only supports Java 8. Check this page for more info:

You need to have Java 8 as default Java on your computer (JAVA_HOME) and the moment.

Verify this by running java -version to make sure Java 8 is used.
