    posted a message on Minecraft F.O.V.

    If you're running 16:9 (chances are you are) then I recommend 90 FOV. It's the standard for 16:9 as far as I know, though it isn't what I use. I use 110, but it definitely distorts the sides of the screen so I see why not everyone uses it. Anything under 80 I would never do, as it'll get me sick.


    But asCaptainSonicYT already said, it is personal preference. Play around and see what's best for you. I would recommend starting at an FOV, playing for 10 minutes, then going up 10 (by fov), repeat.

    posted a message on My thoughts on 1.13's new Default Resource Pack, and Minecraft's evolution in general.

    I don't actually know much about this new update yet, though I'm not looking forward to the new resource packs. Not particularly because it looks bad, but I just don't like it because I dislike a big change like this. However, I'm not going to complain about it because if I was a new player I'd probably prefer these textures to the others (assuming I didn't recognize the old textures). Plus you can just use a resource pack with the old textures, so there's really no room to complain.


    This data pack stuff sounds interesting, never heard about it before. Judging by name alone I doubt it could overtake forge, but 'guess I'll have to see.

    Quote from RamboHD»

    Thanks sp614x,

    for 64 chunks render distance. The last preview version of otifine does more than double my fps compared to vanilla minecraft, the other version of optifine "only" increased the fps about 50%. sp614x great job done. The chunks load a lot faster with the last preview of optifine, than with other versions of optifine and WAY FASTER than vanilla minecraft. The 4x screenshot resolution is great too.


    It's awesome that a mod this old is still getting good feature updates. Such as the 4x screenshot resolution.

    Try sorting the mods into version subfolders. By this I mean


    In the mods folder, make a "1.12.2" folder. Put all the 1.12.2 mods inside of it. Make a 1.10.2 folder, and put all those mods in it etc.

    Looking for assistance getting OptiFine to run on 1.12.2 with Forge. I've got both fully updated, but get a crash whenever I try launching Minecraft. I've tried changing the game version etc but if I change the profile from the latest version to anything else there is no "Mods" option on the game screen. If I remove OptiFine from the mods folder and just run other mods the game works fine.


    My experience of modding Minecraft is about a week old so this might be an easy thing to explain......any help much appreciated!


    Cheers


    You're using the optifine jar version for 1.12.2 right? What other mods are you running?

    Huh TIL. Out of curiosity, who much of "you should really know what you are doing before you try this" -ness should someone have before overclocking a monitor?

    And Typing Like This Slowly Kills Me.

    Not really any. From when I first heard of it, I was always told it's completely safe to do. I also have never had any issues/monitor failures since I started overclocking my monitors (2 years maybe?). The only warning I heard was basically just that it might shorten the lifespan of the monitor, probably nothing dramatic though. I don't think it's anywhere near "dangerous" that overclocking your CPU or GPU is (not that OCing those is always dangerous). That said, don't blame me in the event your house explodes cause you did it :P

    Basically, you use your GPU (or iGPU)'s settings (Nvida control panel/amd control catalyst/intelHD graphics properties) and make a custom resolution. Leave everything as it would normally be, but try bumping up the refresh rate to 65. If it works, bump it up 5 more. Etc. Once you hit the limit, your monitor will say something like "out of range", so you just wait the 30 seconds or whatever for it to revert settings.

    I have had one display that said it was getting overclocked but in reality it wasn't at all (it stayed at 60hz despite my PC showing 80) but it was a 3D TV so I think that had something to do with it.

    You can verify your monitor's overclocking here.

    Most monitors can't display over 60FPS. Just a heads up. From my limited knowledge of computers, that should definitly run minecraft.


    Also, typing in this manner is very jarring. Why?



    While this is true, in a very few games I can tell when the game is at 60fps or 300fps, even with the monitor at 60hz. CSGO is the only example I can think of where I can tell. I can only tell while playing (and not watching), but it isn't that big of a difference. 60FPS is just fine and more is just nice to have (that is - with a 60hz monitor). Also with most monitors I've found you can overclock them a decent bit, not that this makes a huge difference. One of my monitors can go up to 85hz.

    Also I have to agree that typing like that is a bit annoying, Though Not As Annoying As People Who Type Like This HaHa.

    posted a message on What is your favorite OS?

    When you restart your computer in the middle of a gameplay session with freinds online because something is messed up (like your microphone drivers, or a program), and then are forced an update (Which can take ages!) down your throat, it definitely feels bad. Even if it was just a reminder when you turned on your PC, thats a lot better than "Heres the update file, stuff it!


    I definitely see how this is a negative, and I agree it should never do this but I have one problem. I have literally never seen this happen before, or have had it happen to me. Across multiple computers. Windows always tells me I have an update available, and asks me when I should have it installed. It never installs them automatically, I just can't choose to not ever update. I'm not trying to say that this is a myth or anything, but it's a non-issue for because I've never experienced it.

    It looks like it's more expensive on pcpartpicker. I wanna be able to get at least above 300fps on medium settings. I think this'll do or give me more fps. Should I get it?


    Just look up videos of Minecraft with the CPU and the GPU of that pc, just to check how the performance would be. The PC looks good to me, but I'm not an expert.

    posted a message on What is your favorite OS?

    You mean the start menu ads, Cortana, autoupdates and Microsoft edge?



    I don't think autoupdates are that bad. I also think it's a good thing edge is bundled with Windows 10, not that I use it. Start menu ads are annoying, though you can easily turn them off. Cortana... well I don't use cortana, so I guess I agree with you there.

    Still, Windows 10 has to be so far my favorite OS. Even compared to Windows 7 and various linux distributions.

    Hello! I've had a question that's been wondering my mind. I've been looking to purchase a desktop for what I use. The game is called Minecraft. I'm sure you've all heard of "low fps" or "Frame Lag". I've also wondered if this would be good for Minecraft and how much FPS it would give me. If you can tell me the amount of the minimum and maximum frames it can have that would be great.


    I've also wanted to have it for creating GFX and coding for example, HTML, CSS, Java and javascript.


    I will be leaving a website link to a store that I know I can make purchases from. Here is the website link to the desktop, and all the information you might need to know :).


    https://www.staples.com/IBUYPOWER-SN3101EI-Desktop-Intel-Core-i7-7700-8GB-RAM-1TB-HDD-120GB-SSD-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-1070-Windows-10/product_23980495


    Price: $1299.99




    I can't tell you exactly how your performance with that would be but the specs look very good. You should have no problem hitting 60FPS, especially vanilla. The PC is probably somewhere inbetween upper mid-spec and high end IMO. I would first check to see how much you could get all that for if you built it yourself though, use pcpartpicker for that.
