1. Delete the model subfolder beneath "versons" and re-run it to obtain and rebuild every little thing. just another mini blog and player profiles are stored in separate folders, so you possibly can remove variations without removing player configuration.2. If #1 did not work for a Forge version, take away both the Forge and the the corresponding mainline version folders underneath "versions" and run it once more to re-obtain the whole lot.
