I'm trying to host a Minecraft 1.2.5 LAN server with offline mode, and as expected I'm having the issue where everyone who tries to join the server is given the name "Player" so only 1 person can connect.
All the solutions posted here and elsewhere indicate to change the value of
launcher_profiles.json (example 1, example 2). However, no such field exists for me (in August 2020). The closest I can find is a
username field which holds my email address.
What is the proper way in 2020 to override the
displayName so that multiple players can join this offline server?
