Issue comments

You are using Java 9, 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.

MCreator 1.8.2 will allow you to specify the path to Java 8, but for now, Java 8 needs to be the default Java on your Mac.

Sorry, I just found a really easy way of doing this. MCreator works fine now, thanks!
