Technic SSP is back

If you've been with us since the start, you might remember our Technic SSP modpack, and how it was gone for a long time after we moved to the new Platform. Well, it's back now!

Keep in mind that the modpack is provided as-is, without any changes from how it originally was back then, so some stuff is bound to be a bit broken.

Support for 1.13+ Forge is here!

We know it took a while, but it's finally here.

Technic Launcher now supports Forge in Minecraft 1.13 and above.

We're using the same wrapper MultiMC uses (, and the necessary changes have been made to our launcher all thanks to phit.

But how do you use it?

Well, instead of putting the Forge universal jar as your "bin/modpack.jar", you put the Forge installer jar. That's it.

"Bad login" error on some older modpacks

Edit: Originally this post mentioned the old auth servers had been taken offline. Apparently, that issue wasn't related with the alpha/beta auth servers being taken offline, as originally mentioned here, and has been, since then, fixed. This post isn't applicable anymore.

The original post is kept below for historic reasons.

You might have received a "Failed to login: Bad login" error when trying to connect to a server on some older modpacks. This is because Mojang has disabled their old authentication servers (, which means that Minecraft versions older than 1.6 can't authenticate anymore. For example: Tekkit Classic.

If you're running a Minecraft server for these versions, the only workaround right now is to set your server to offline mode (online-mode=false) via the file located in the root of the server folder, which will disable all authentication, so it's highly recommended to install a plugin like AuthMe ( so your players are at least acceptably safe.

This issue is listed on Mojang's bug tracker at

Recent update to our official modpacks

Hello everyone! You might have noticed that we pushed out some updates to most of our official modpacks.

A mod was added (Lumy Skin Patch), which brings back your super nice Minecraft skins (and if you play with other people, theirs as well!).

Happy gaming!

Forums database breach

If you have an account on our forums or wiki, and are using your password somewhere else, change it immediately. You should still be fine, but this is a necessary precaution.
Our forums and wiki got compromised by an unknown third-party. On Friday a user warned us that our wiki was redirecting to some Chinese website. As a precaution, we took down that machine (forums + wiki) while we investigated the issue. Now, we are aware that a malicious unknown third-party injected a PHP shell in our server, most likely through a Mediawiki vulnerability. Upon further inspection, we discovered that the forum database had been leaked. For now, our forums and wiki remain offline, while we assess the situation and decide what to do next.
We apologize for this situation, and moving forward we will harden our security surrounding external systems, such as the forums and wiki. and Technic Platform (that includes the launcher) are not affected. Only the forums are affected.
Your Minecraft account is completely unrelated, so it's safe as well.
