      Description

      When creating a new game profile ("Installation") in the launcher for Minecraft Java Edition, you are able to specify a Game Directory where information specific to that profile will be stored.

      Relative paths do work in this field - for example, if you create a profile to play on version 1.12.2, and for the profile's game directory you enter

      profiles\vanilla-1.12.2

      Everything works and the game launches. However, if you investigate the file system in the above folder, you see the directory structure is doubled - example below.

      Specifying an absolute path does not experience the same issue, e.g.

      C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\profiles\vanilla-1.12.2

       

       

       

      I think I can best explain this as a directory tree. So, this is what the folder looks like:

       

      • .minecraft
        • profiles
          • vanilla-1.12.2
            • logs
              • ...
            • profiles
              • vanilla-1.12.2
                • resourcepacks
                  • ...
                • saves
                  • ...
                • realms_persistence.json
