Update custom profile game version

I.e. updating between 1.16.4 to 1.16.5 for Minecraft without having to create another profile then coping the mods in-between them then making sure all relevant save data is the same, etc.

    I just got the same idea, Some message should say that some of the mods are missing or not (some mods will be updated, some will stay old and die) and do you want to try to load the older ones (wont work of course), delete them in the new update or cancel the whole action. I just want to be able to update 1.19 or any other modpack to 1.20 for example, i am not talking about changing the forge or anything else version since its built inside curseforge launcher. It already have the exporting profile feature that will have links to each mod, also it does save crucial informations like version of the game and mods, so its doable in some ways instead of scrolling all the way trough all the 200+ mods for modpack, it would be very helpfull, even if the results would be very inconsistent for the average users.

    hey, curseforge, i need this update. if you do not add this feature, i will be forced to abandon using your service and go to a competitor. most people i know have already done this. as the guest has commented, i do not need you or your program to treat me like an incompetant child. just let me change the game version and i'll sort out the rest. manually copying over a modpack with 100+ mods and multiple configuration files, custom scripts, and datapacks simply isnt possible. i require this feature. curseforge had this feature back when it was owned by twitch. why you decided to remove it beggars belief, but it was an incompetant decision.

    Team Overwolf, this doesnt help me. as-is, i am unable to effectively update my modpacks across versions. just allow me to manually change the game version, and give me alerts on what mods arent fit for that version. or, better yet, just let me sort that part out. im a big boy. i dont need your program to baby me.

    if the mods aren't updated from one version to the next, the custom profile won't be able to update either.
    This is mostly on the author's side.
