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.

Somehow has the FTB-Client no issues with that at all.

The FTB/Curse/Twitch/Overwolf/whatever they're now, just use the Vanilla launcher. So you're running 2 launchers in order to play. The majority of other launchers, including ours, re-implement the auth flow and other functions of the Vanilla launcher in order to not have to install it.

We're also stuck waiting for Microsoft and Mojang's solution for third-party launchers.

There are other launchers that have implemented a solution for MS accounts, but it's based on reverse-engineered information and we could get a Cease & Desist from Microsoft if we went down that route.

Is it not possible just to remove this login process for people on Microsoft accounts? I understand you do this to make sure that the person has a full copy of the game, but surely that should be something Mojang are concerned about. If they are not making this easy on you, then you should not worry about doing their work for them. I've got a server where some people who've migrated recently cannot access the server anymore. Something surely has to be done?

So you are saying we should just allow every cracked person on the launcher?

Quite frankly, yes. It seems that Mojang are dragging their feet on this, and from looking at what people (legitimate Microsoft accounts) are saying about being unable to access certain MP servers, then absolutely yes. The job of policing cracked accounts should be on Microsoft, not places like Technic. If Microsoft gave effective tools that allowed legitimate players access here, then this idea would never have crossed my mind. But at the minute, again, absolutely yes.

What I was getting at was I read that other launchers reverse engineer the login aspect, but Technic won't do that due to cease and desist concerns. Surely Mojang/Microsoft wouldn't do that, or they would have already done this to others? Surely they would use their brain to understand that there is no other avenue for Microsoft accounts (which they are now forcing us to move to). 

My frustration is not held here with Technic, it's purely aimed at Mojang/Microsoft. I just don't want to end up shutting my server off to move it to another mod-pack or vanilla. Do you know, are Mojang/Microsoft actually doing anything at all on this front, or is it going to be that it effect so few people (in ratio of the total playerbase) that they just won't care? Bah.

As far as I know, Microsoft/Mojang are working on this.

We're still waiting, but if nothing comes soon then we might have no option but to roll the reverse engineered stuff. We already have people who are unable to play Technic packs because new accounts are MS accounts, so I definitely understand and share your frustration with this.

Well, I mean, I just bought Minecraft, as meaning I have a Microsoft account for Minecraft: Java Edition, and I'm only trying to get my modpack running, and I find it quite frustrating. Nah, real frustrating. I do understand the concern of cracked people being able to use you're launcher, but to be honest, the migration is said to be in early 2021, so if you could only just let go of the Minecraft.net Login and use the Technic login for the meanwhile until the migration has begun, that would be really awesome. I am told I am not a man of the brightest ideas, so I would completely understand if you find this suggestion really crappy, but that's the best idea that popped in my head that no one else had.

We're not going to turn our launcher into a cracked launcher.

You are literally asking us to transform our legitimate launcher into an illegal, cracked launcher. You can probably see why we won't do that.

      Hello,
      how the title says, I cannot log in with my account, it says that I haven't any license for Minecraft. But the strange thing is that I have a license (Minecraft Windows 10 License).
      I can download the game from the Windows Store and start the game.
      Any solutions?

      I want to change my platform email (not my forums email). I've already tried to emailing Technic about it, but it wouldn't go through. Is there any way to change my Technic Platform email without creating a new account?
    • By kijzeer
      I would like my account to be deleted from the platform, but couldn't find a way to do so in the profile settings.

      Hi all,
      It's 51-yr-old Dad here, trying to install the latest mod that the kids want.  It's not the usual process of copying ZIPs and JARs to the proper folders - a piece of software is going to do that for me.  OK, the kids really want this mod, so we'll install Technic Launcher as seems to be required.  OK, installed.  Please enter Mojang ID and password.  Nope!  Why should I give Technic Launcher my Mojang ID and PW?  I'd love to read about why this is necessary.  Is there a one-page about this software and what it does?  Screenshots?  The About page has history and bios.  The Wiki doesn't seem to be written for beginners like me.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thank you!
      Dad/Tom.
