Launcher Problems

Recommended Posts

Having been forced to install the new launcher because the older one refuses to work (it is stuck in a perpetual restart to install update loop) I discover I have now lost all the mod packs I had installed and even standard ones like Hexxit need re-installing. All data lost. Please help.

 

Now the old launcher just brings up the same thing as the new launcher program does. The files are still there in the computer but there is no program that allows them to run. Modpack names in the files are no always the same as the name they have in the list so I'm not sure if I can track them all down & what if the pack is no longer listed? How do you add modpacks to it anyway. This update is has really messed things up. You have to start totally from scratch and it appears only a few already listed in the launcher modpacks are permitted to be used now.

Delete your .technic folder and your Technic Launcher. Reinstall it from http://technicpack.net/downloads/ .

Now, to install packs make sure your launcher is open and you are logged into it, as well as that your are logged into Technic the Technic Platform website.

Find the modpack you wish to install and click "Install This Modpack" and wait for the launcher to disappear and reappear with the modpack now added.

I have discovered that if you can find the proper name of the modpack & put it into the search box at the top of the modpack list if you are lucky it will bring up a bit in the launcher with the option to install & if you click install it will add it back into the launcher. However, the name used for the file in the technic launcher files and the name required are not always the same thing- files called businessserver, for example, require you to put Dragontech into that search box. The launcher cannot recognise any modpacks you have not specifically added into this new launcher that way and the website only has the old copy & past links that are now useless. All deleting the data and starting a fresh like you suggest does is  you cannot play any of your saved worlds, go on any of the servers you have ever been on using the modpacks. The past is simply deleted and you get a new bunch of modpacks. It does not unlock any new modpack adding options or any ability to recognise previous files if copy and pasted back in or anything else. In other words it doesn't solve my problem.

 

When I installed the new launcher I deleted the old launcher anyway. I couldn't simply update the old launcher.
