Change Java Version (Mac)

You cannot currently (and couldn't, without using inspect element, on the old Twitch app) change the version on Java that Minecraft tries to run with. On Mac, there is no support for the native launcher (even though that's the only one that can be selected for some reason), and so the latest version is always used - even if that's not supported by certain mods (like most versions >Java 1.8)

    We have a longer term plan to enable the native launcher for Mac. This requires more extensive work and we hope to achieve this in the first half of 2021.
