Hey everyone! I hope this hasn't already been posted by someone else, but I want to help people with computers that Lag in Minecraft!

System Requirements for Tutorail
Windows XP+ (any earlier, and Minecraft probably wont even Run on your COMPUTER)
Atleast 1GB+ Of RAM
Intel Atom+
30GB+ Hard Drive/s
Netbook+
Minecraft Beta 13_01

Recommended System Requirements:
Windows Vista Basic/home+
100GB+ HDD
Intel Atom+
2GB+ Of RAM (I have 1GB)
Minecraft Beta 12_05+


Well, lets get started, there is also a YouTube video which is currently STILL in Production! I will post it on here ASAP

(I will put a Diamond Gem, Gold Bar or Iron Bar for if you NEED to do this, Iron = Dont have to. Gold = Dont have to but Minecraft may STILL lag, Diamond = Best if you do it)


Written Instructions:

1. Defragmentate your Hard Drive! Fragmentated files are bad for your computer, they are files that have got lost somewhere in your computer, but sadly slow it down! - Start Menu -> Search Bar -> "Disk Defrag" -> Click Icon -> Select Disk C: -> Click Defragmentate -> Windows will Analyse Disk THEN Defragmentate it.  :Diamond:

2. Disk Cleanup! Cleans up files on your computer that it dosen't need! - Start Menu -> Search Bar -> "Disk Cleanup" -> Click Icon -> Select what you want to be cleaned -> click OK.  :DBlock:

3. Put Battery on High Performance! You may need a Battery Charger for this! High Performance uses lots of Battery Power to get more Performance! - Task Bar (next to the Time) -> Battery Icon -> Click It -> Select High Performance (if the Option isn't there, then click "More Power Options").  :GoldBar:

4. COMPUTER on High Performance! Pretty complicated, but safe, when you do this, Windows will turn ALL Graphical, Background programs, EVERYTHING that it dosen't need on, but wont delete them! - Start Menu -> Right Click My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced -> Performance -> "Ajust for Best Performance" -> Ok OR Apply. (to reset back to normal, repeat these steps and choose "Let windows adjust what is best for my computer")  :Diamond:

5. Virtual Memory (Paging File)! Easy to do, awesome, you repeat Number 4's Steps, but when you get to "Visual Effects" (the bit where you put "Adjust for best Performance" you click the NEXT TAB WHICH IS ADVANCED. Then you go to "Virtual Memory" and select where it says "Change" then you Uncheck the first Box what is Checked, put in a number like 4024 which means that you are putting 4GB of Hard Drive Space onto your Paging File, thus speeding up games as Virtual Memory is what your computer uses AS IF it was RAM, but still speeds up your computer!.  :GoldBar:


Thanks and I hope all of these help you, I'm starting the YouTube vid straight away! It WILL be Posted on THIS Forum, so check back TODAY (06/03/2011) Thanks!

Sorry for the Bump!

But I've finally finished the YouTube vid! And here it is...


(BTW my Minecraft Icon says MinecraftSP. I RE-NAMED it that meaning "MinecraftSP = Minecraft Super" Because well, MINECRAFT IS SUPER!)

No, don't upgrade now, I have updated the System Requirements list! You have a pretty good System actually, It could Lag online because of your Internet Connection Speed (http://speedtest.net/) Try using Speed Test! Maybe you could post the results back here! Anyway, before you go online, I would do ALL of these steps, then run Minecraft, if the problem of Online Lag carries on, watch some videos on youtube to speed up your Internet Connection! Plus you may want to Upgrade your Dirext! I have Dirext 11 which is the latest one, if you can not find it, download Dirext 10. Download the latest Java, and also you could upgrade your Graphics Card, but that's only if you are desperate, as I said, do ALL of the steps above except the Graphics Card. if you still lag, contact Notch (if you can) or Mojang OR Admins/Moderators.


Good Luck!

Ok, first, What IS your Processor, Intel, ATI? Tell me and I will find a way! Try the other tips! If it maxes out your RAM, increase your Virtual Memory, and (if you can) Buy a RAM Chip, 2GB or 1GB Chips will be great! (if you buy a 2GB, you will have 4GB of RAM, 1GB, it will be 3GB)


And people. ONE DAY, WE WILL WIN THE WAR AGAINST MINECRAFT LAG!

I know what your Problem Is at last!


69 Processes running at the same time! That IS bad! Try downloading Gamebooster http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html

Now you probably should stop lagging!

Next, about your Processor, Celeron M. that is quite low, try upgrading to the latest one http://downloadcenter.intel.com/



And those 2 RAM Slots, that dosen't matter, all you do is buy a chip, open up one of the RAM slots, carefully take the existing RAM chip OUT (I advise watching youtube videos of how NOT to break your computer) then carefully place the NEW Chip back in (buy a 3GB or 4GB). As I said, watch youtube!

Also the DDR2 is Excellent, to my knowledge that is currently the best type out, so now worries.

32bit. Thats good, no problems there my friend!

Yep I know, Adware is horrible, hate it, Gamebooster works though! It works for me, the game runs smoother than smooth!

Could be. If I were you I would change to a different server, see how things go there.
