So about 3 months ago, I was playing minecraft perfectly well. No problems, worked just fine with graphics set to 'fast' and the fog distance set to 'tiny', of course I'd get a bit of lag when I had it set on anything other than 'peaceful', and when I run into a large mountain or a bunch of caves, but that was bearable.
But now when I play, its laggy all the time, no matter how much I let it load the surrounding level before sauntering off.
I haven't gotten any viruses and I keep my computer rather tidy with ccleaner. Is it something Notch implemented in an update or something? I just can't play Minecraft like this.
Also, any news on when he'll implement multiple threading?
What are your sytem spec's? Minecraft will not use alot of ram? I would assume it is your internet connection, Press Control Alt Delete Go To Task Manager Click Proccesses Any Unused Applications Running Shut them down, (Not Windows, Or Linux Applications) If you have any troubles after doing that post again.
I am having a similar problem where every 10 to 30 seconds my screen just freezes for a second. i have a relatively new computer (<6 months). its 1200 dollars and i bought it because it has good specs for games. It has 6 gigs of ram and the new i7 processor... which means i have 8 strands with roughly 1.7 gHz each (p.s. this is the newest processor on the market currently). i also have a graphics card with its own memmory and my computer plays wow without a problem. someone must have SOME kinds of clue as to whats going on.
