Omigosh thanks! 8D

Making painstakingly slow progress through Lethamyr C now.  Only died once so far...eheheheh. :'>  I'm seeing how far I can get before I evitably die and rage quit play version E.  (I don't typically rage quit due to difficulty, only rage take a break or rage Easy Modo).

I may update on my sanity results at a later time!

The ones I already posted was with advanced openGL off :

I never really used that option, but it definitely did something.

I bet you were wondering if your walls between the intersection and the area did something for the FPS... Guess what, it looks like it does... if you turn on that option that is.

Source of my guess (warning, this video might spoil Spellbound caves, you have been warned) :

http://www.youtube.c...mudRG4M#t=1m05s

I've since learned more about it.  What Advanced OpenGL does is lets Minecraft not render anything you cannot see.  Therefore, my "Valve Hallways" do give people noticeable performance increases.

So basically, with AOGL turned OFF, Minecraft has to render everything within your draw distance, even if you can't see it.  This is a huge waste of CPU and GPU power.

With it turned ON, Minecraft only has to render what you can actually see.

So while it might not help as much when you go to he source of your FPS issues, it will certainly help at least a little bit, so I would always recommend AOGL turned on unless it's not compatible with you GPU for whatever reason.  (I can't imagine any modern GPU not being able to do that though...)

Huge apologies if you mentioned this, but what GPU are you using?

Advanced OpenGL is not compatible with Intel GPUs. *stifles small giggle*

Get a better PC. That's the best solution imo.
Downloading things can fuck up your PC pretty badly.

It has to be compatible, otherwise I don't think I would've gotten those numbers in these tests.

How so? According to the wiki, that option enables/disables occlusion culling, which according to an article on Intel's site, the chips does support. Although in the test I ran in my main world I don't notice a difference :s. As for Waking Up, it lags badly at the spawn point [on normal + smooth lighting off + fast] to even test >.>. Note that this all was done on Vista 32 bit [and no, that's not the problem :P]

Yep, I can confirm this. Even with Optifine, Advanced OpenGL doesn't really work. But I already am pretty happy with the FPS increase that Optifine gives me, so I can live with that.

-_- You're trying really hard to make fun of people who have shitty computers, don't ya? Don't worry, I'll buy a new laptop within the next two month. Either with an Ivy Bridge CPU combined with a Kepler or Southern Islands GPU. Or a laptop with the new Trinity APU (if so, then probably the A10-4600M). Then, finally, you won't be able to make fun of me anymore! Hahahaha... *Evil laugh with the sound of rainstorm and thunder in the background*

Decided to try out Waking Up.  So far I have the first 4 wools and have just started on the 2nd intersection.  My opinions so far:

Hi again. I posted about download issues a few pages back. Thought I'd update.

I did try a proxy browser and it didn't help me. Since it worked for someone else it might've been a bad proxy, though. But I can't test it as I am now in Denmark (last post was made in Sweden) and here the download worked perfectly fine.

Been playing Waking Up the past couple of hours and five minutes ago I desperately tried to fight off a horde of poison spiders, accidentally set off a TNT and died that very instant. I could only watch in horror as all of my items, including a brand new enchanted diamond sword, were blown to pieces.

Thanks Vechs :P

I recently introduced my sister into CTM maps.  We did Spellbound Caves.  I've already beaten it, but it was still fun.  I actually died more than she did :P  Here's our victory photo!  We're now doing a LP of Sunburn Islands!  Expect it in a few weeks!
