Support for Third-Party Minecraft Launcher like PCL2

In China, due to some issues, the official Minecraft launcher may fail to download Minecraft or have a significantly slow download speed in certain cases. Some third-party launchers can download Minecraft from local mirror sources, greatly improving the download speed. They can provide more than just download speed, for example, PCL2 can generate better launch commands, improve performance, allow window size selection, and optimize memory usage. Additionally, it can be configured to enforce players to use their authentic accounts. Sometimes, supporting third-party launchers might not be too difficult as they provide configuration files similar to the official launcher. I hope my idea can be approved.

    The following file shows the Offical Online Account Only Mode of an instance. When I tries to start the game without login into a account, it shows a pop that says you must login into an offical online account first. The version swich and other configures are disabled by modifing the config file. In this video, users cannot play games without paying for them.

    it's unlikely they'll be able to do this legally because lots of 3rd party apps allow cracked accounts
