All I can hope for is that MultiMC will update to fix this for 1.7.10 and older Versions, because the official Minecraft Launcher, last time I checked, does not exist for Linux in any workable fashion, because I click Linux and it downloads the Windows Launcher instead from the Downloads Page, and that pile of garbage doesn’t run either…
This whole thing can pose an Issue for two Reasons.
- The Launcher wont be able to log in anymore and requires an Update.
- I am not sure how Multiplayer Authentification works but it might also be broken in the same way if Servers suddenly cant validate Access Tokens anymore. A Launcher Update cannot fix that part if it gets broken.
This whole switching to Microsoft Accounts is mandatory starting somewhen in 2021, and ofcourse unavoidable. At the very least they could have kept the old Account System and only made it mandatory for new Minecraft Updates, but noooope…
I still run the last Linux compatible official MC Launcher by the way “1.6.89-j”, which is multiple years old by now, and even has some sort of fucked up “Auto-Download the Newer Launcher, when you click literally anywhere that is not a Button”-Functionality, when used on Windows.
Edit: Also some people don’t want to have a Microsoft Account, what is with those people? That is like the Oculus Hardware being f-booked.
Thanks for fucking up shit again Mojang, I guess.
