It is impossible to remove a game from the mods list once added
I moved the install location of ksp to my other disk and removed the old one. Now i have ksp and ksp 2. I cannot remove the old one. I dont want to remove the ksp folder in steam.
I had originally installed Curse, and upgraded to Twitch. So my corresponding path was
C:\Users\"user account name"\AppData\Roaming\Curse Client\GameInstances
I edited the json file AddonGameInstance.json, removing the unwanted paths. I want to keep two paths but I still can't reorder them, even after renaming the profiles. The first path, alphabetically, is the default selected path when I log in. The first one is the only one which automatically updates mods. In my case, I'm playing WoW, and the first is PTR. So this is really not helpful.
We need to be able to edit game paths in a user-friendly way, and we need all game paths to auto update mods.
yeah we need the option to delete mod game pages from the list so we can reconfigure them! its so unprofessional that its this non-user friendly. im surprised its not addressed yet... its been what almost 3 years? yet still no fix with this issue!
I solved this manually like cryllic94, but i didn't delete all games, just the game i wanted.
IK it's a dumb way, but what should we do else...
- Close twitch
- Go to C:\Users\"user account name"\AppData\Roaming\Twitch\GameInstances
- Open AddonGameInstance.json (with Notepad++ or something like this)
- Search (binoculars symbol xD) for a game you want, select all the lines that
belong to this game and delete them.
- Save the file
- Start twitch
This works for me, BUT I STILL WANT JUST THE Delete BUTTON!!!
this didn't help me fully, but it was a good direction for me, after i cleaned this file i had to change its settings to read-only, otherwise the launch of the twitch app restored all other directories immediatley.
After you started twitch while the read only flag on that specific "Gameinstances.json" file i could undo the flag and the problem was solved for me aswell. Thank you guys!
C:\Users\"user account name"\AppData\Roaming\Twitch\GameInstances open AddonGameInstance.json and press ctrl a to select all and hit delete then save and restart Twitch. Problem solved and just manually add what game you want.
This is silly. I use "symbolic links" and other file system features and I do NOT want to have my second World of Warcraft folder listed, especially when it does not get updated even if it is.
GIVE A DELETE OPTION!!!
A six year old coder can fix that.
I can't get rid of a modpack even though I haven't touched it in over a year. It just says 'deleting' with a loading icon and never actually goes away. AND the Cancel button doesn't work either.
Not to mention the scroll bar in the modpacks browser is broken and can only scroll two down. Not very laptop friendly, you can only scroll it if you have a mouse.
(temporary fix, right click a modpack and choose open folder, then manually delete the file named after what you want. really shouldn't have to do this, but hey.)
Give us a delete option in the game/drop-down menu. It's troublesome to have beta folders that haven't been installed in months still listed with zero way to remove them. That's the kind of basic GUI functionality that should've been one of the first things added.
what a ******* dumbest app of my life.
I solved this by uninstalling the Twitch program.
It is still uninstalled and are not coming back.
I'm stunned at the lack of basic features in this supposed "mod manager". The Twitch app really feels like its trying to do too much and doing none of it well.
How is this not fixed yet?? I tried to uninstall en install Twitch again, but it's still adding game directories I don't want!
Same problem, do something twitch please. I want it clean for my OCD
Sort this out Twitch. Even if we cannot remove the useless links at least let us reorder the games so that the correct ones open when we want them too or is that part of the 'Premium' service?
I tried to do what @Shock1702 recommended but no matter what the game still remained in the list. I couldn't find any other references, so my thought is that maybe the modern Twitch client synchs settings to the cloud somehow?
Either way I found a nice thing under Settings -> Addons -> Game specific where I could "disable" the erroneous path, as well as ensure that Twitch client always starts in the addon view with my retail WoW selected.
So this is at least a viable workaround for myself right now. Takes away the frustration.
Another frustrating tidbit is that I "pin" my twitch client to the taskbar in Windows 10, but each time I start the twitch client it seem to generate a new version of itself, so I get duplicates and have to unpin/pin each time. That is a problem for a later date. :)
E is my hard drive for Twitch, change if you have it installed on C for example.
Open the json and delete the old paths. Have fun with it, for me it had 34.212 lines...
This seriously needs fixed. and telling it not to manage the game as Twitch suggests is just laughable because the app just says ********* I do what I want. If you won't give us a way to remove game profiles just give us the option to reorder them at least.
FFS twitch, why is this still a problem. It's incredibly difficult and frustrating to work with this.
But I was able to remove a game finally when I found a second twitch folder in the same folder as appdata is located, that twitch folder had the game I wanted to remove. Deleting the files from there and the gameinstance json removed Minecraft from mods.
I guess twitch doesn't give a **** considering this should have been fixed eons ago
Good grief, how is this still an issue two years later?
