    Title Local Play w/ Modpacks Installed

    Launcher Type Twitch Desktop App

    Modpack FTB DW20 1.12.2

    Modpack version 2.4.0

    Have you modified the pack? No

    Details of the issue My daughter and I have always used the method of changing the display name in the launcher profile .json file in order to play locally across multiple computers in our house on vanilla minecraft. Now that I've installed the twitch launcher and the DW20 1.12 modpack that method doesn't seem to function anymore, because when trying to join the game from the non-host computer it gives you the original "that name already exists" message as if you hadn't changed the display name.

    I know the simple answer is go out and spend the few bucks and buy her her own account, yeah could do that $27 is no big deal, but it just seems silly for the sole purpose of playing locally across two computer and nothing else, especially when most of her minecraft time is spent in the non java version.

    So to summarize, is there still a way to play locally with 1 account after modpacks have been installed? Thanks!
