In the event where the user does not have an internet connection, it should be possible to use the app to lunch modpacks, so people don't have to manually add profiles to their Minecraft launcher just in case their internet goes down.
the fact that this is "Not Planned" is definitely pretty scummy. Minecraft supports offline play with its own launcher that Curseforge already launches through. Please do not put always-online DRM on a game you dont own.
Not saying offline shouldn't get added but in the meantime you can run MultiMC and add the modpacks as instances to that and play them completely offline. You'll need to export the modpacks from the launcher and make sure the export include config, mods, and resources, then you'll import from .zip in MultiMC, and then bam you'll be able to run the modpacks completely offline
Hope this helps
It'd be really cool if you add this RIGHT NOW! Like, RIGHT NOW
Please please please do this, I just assumed that it would work offline because it seems like a no-brainer but I found out last night when my internet went out that it doesn't. Super frustrating.
Im just begging for this one cause Im a service member and if boingo shiternet wasnt enough, Im also overseas and soon to be spending a hefty amount of time in an enviroment with no internet access
It seems they've put the final nail in the coffin on this one. Now when you launch curseforge without an internet connection it tells you one is required. I suppose its less frustrating than how it was before on twitch, where it pretended to have an "offline mode", but it made you sign in and wouldn't work because it couldn't contact servers (duh, you're offline).
If I open CurseForge offline then the app will not finish opening, it will get stuck on forging your library loading screen. then if I aleredy have Curse Forge open when I go offline I can't start my modpacks.
this really feels like it should be a bug report, rather than a feature request.
When Im offline and I didnt already have the launcher open with internet access this is what I get.
I'm able to access modpacks offline...?
