How can I start minecraft from a different folder via .bat file?

  • How can I start minecraft from a different folder via .bat file? NoCanDo

    Due me testing out various mods, I've created a cloned .minecraft folder called ".minecraft_modtesting" .

    In my normal MC folder I've got a batch file with

    start /high javaw -Xmx2048M -Xms1024M -Djava.library.path=bin/natives -cp bin/minecraft.jar;bin/jinput.jar;bin/lwjgl.jar;bin/lwjgl_util.jar net.minecraft.client.Minecraft "name" "password"

    However, I can't use this in ".minecraft_modtesting" because it starts the minecraft.jar from the ".minecraft" directory.

    How can I change that please?

I've run the batch file decompile.bat, but when opening the eclipse folder there are no files in the bin folder. The batch file ran fine with no errors, and if I go to /src/minecraft/net/minecraft there are many decompiled java files, but no modloader files like BaseMod.java. If I open this folder with eclipse, nothing appears in the package explorer menu. What's going wrong and how do I fix it? Any help greatly appreciated.
