I can't figure out how to install the texture pack Optifine...

I read the instructions, but I'm completely unable to open the .jar file.
How can I open minecraft.jar without downloading some program like WinRAR that will ruin my ability to open ZIP folders and never go away?  (This happened when I tried downloading WinRAR on another computer.)

You can't open them unless you download winrar or 7zip

Fine, I've downloaded 7zip (I'm NEVER touching WinRAR), I'll go back and see if I can follow the rest of the instructions...

I suggest using 7-zip, it's much less confusing and system-altering than WinRAR.

Ok, I've got the file opened.  It says to delete META-INF.

Does that mean delete the entire folder and copy/paste the contents of optifine into minecraft.jar, or delete the contents of META-INF and paste the contents of optifine there?

Winrars a lot more easy to use just saying.

Go to youtube and search a tutorial.

I STRONGLY disagree, 7-zip has been much nicer so far, and doesn't even bombard me with ads telling me to pay for the software :).

You mean one pop-up that you can easily close?

Yeah, and the fact that WinRAR makes working with .zips much more confusing and the program can't be deleted or uninstalled.





Anyway, the tutorial doesn't appear to show me how to move the files from optifine into the .jar file.  He just drags them over like it was nothing, and I can't do that.

EDIT:  Never mind, I got it to work.  Now trying to see what it does...

Hey man, your probably new to the forums so just FYI this is in the wrong section. This section is meant for RELEASED mods. Not for install help. Next time just search for a tutorial and be sure you followed it PERFECTLY, you can use the box to the top right of the page or google(or other search engine). If you need to post for help, you should do it in the Modding Discussion.

I find 7-ZIP much MUCH better, Winrar makes all theese changes to your computer and is much harder to use. Winrar sucks in my opinion.
PUT CRASH LOGS IN SPOILER. Nobody wants to scroll down for 30 seconds if they want to just browse the thread.
Whupkong's shader installation guide. Read this before asking for installation help.
