System Information

MultiMC version: 0.6.0-1154 Win32

Operating System: Windows 10

Summary of the feature request:

  • Add information in the Versions tab of the "Edit Instance" window that this window doesn't actually download and install anything, and that a launch in online mode is required at least once.
  • Add feedback when launching in offline mode that an instance isn't working because it hasn't been launched online yet.

A thought:
Add a column noting which are already present on your system and don't require downloading.

I'm not sure where to put this info. The window is already overloaded with UI elements.

The feedback is there, but clearly not obvious enough:

D:/MultiMC/libraries/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.12.2-14.23.1.2580/forge-1.12.2-14.23.1.2580-universal.jar (missing)

Launch should not proceed when something is missing like this. It should show an obvious error.

Showing that an instance is missing files could be done with badge icons... for example a download symbol in the corner of the instance icon.

I am going to expand upon this, because this is a usability problem and more needs to be done with the version page for it to be usable.
