Microsoft Account support is now available on the launcher's Beta Stable branch. Please see the update on 5/22/21 for more information. Please see the blog post https://www.technicpack.net/article/support-for-microsoft-accounts-is-now-available.165
If you've read the recent MC account migration (https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/article/java-edition-moving-house) and you use Technic Launcher (or any other custom launchers), then do not migrate your account (to a Microsoft account) or you will be unable to use the launcher.
The new auth system that Minecraft uses after this migration isn't support by any MC launchers other than the vanilla launcher, nor do we currently have any information about it so we can implement it.
When? According to Mojang, you'll be forced to migrate your account starting in early 2021. We hope to have support for their new auth system by then. The migration is currently not ongoing.
What if I create a new Minecraft account? Minecraft accounts created on December 1st, 2020 and later, are bound to Microsoft accounts already, and won't be able to use the Technic Launcher, or any other third-party launcher, until Mojang/Microsoft create a solution we can use.
I've played tekkit for a couple thousand hours now and never once encountered the battle I'm going through now. I haven't played in about 6 months or so.
Some things to note:
- I have both java 32 bit and 64 bit runtime environments and I have experimented with a variety of different versions (many recommended on this forum)
-I have 16Gb of RAM, a dedicated GPU and my nVidia driver is up to date. I have also rolled back to previous versions and encountered the same issues.
-With any 64 bit java installed on the PC, Technic Launcher will not launch.
-When I uninstall 64 bit java, launcher starts (in 32 bit) but obviously ram cannot be changed etc... However whilst running, I can install 64 bit java and then change ram settings.
-Packs will download in this case however will not launch even when RAM is set below 6GB. I get a little java pop-up window saying "Hello".
Please please please provide any assistance as I'm not ready to give up just yet!
I've been getting back into The Crafting Dead. I played a session just fine yesterday. Then when I tried to open it again last night it would open Minecraft showing the Mojang logo, then close it and open the launcher again as if nothing happened. I played just fine again earlier today but when I tried to open it just now, it doesn't want to work.
