I have had minecraft for a while and now I have a second user on my computer. We would both like to mod independently but I cannot find a way. Are we locked into the same .bin file because we play off the same computer? Any help would be appreciated! P.S. I have tried using multiple launchers with no results.

you have to have 2 minecraft jar files that are in the bin and change the name each time you play

If the other user is using a different profile on the computer, then the .minecraft folders on the computer should be separate.

Edit: Also some user created tools let you run minecraft from different folders. Look under "Minecraft Tools" in the Mods and Mapping section of the forums.

Me and my bro had (well have) this exact same problem. Due to Minecraft's drawing from the same .bin file we constantly run into difficulty (I prefer vanilla and he just loves messing around with most anything). Basically we just have separate .bin files (used to be entire jars) that we store in a separate folder when one of us is to playing. Then we just switch them when the other wants to play. Simple, but effective.

So how do I go about having 2 bin folders? Do I make a simple copy and paste of the current bin and just switch between them or is it more complicated?

Just rename the bin folder. Change the used bin to, say "SteveBin", and rename, say "GeorgeBin" to bin. Swap that around to the correct user each time before you start minecraft.
