I have recently decided to start up minecraft again but I am having several issues that I don't know how to resolve. First I'll post my pc specs so everyone has a good idea on what I have to work with lol.
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit OS
Processor: AMD Athlon™ 7750 Dual-Core 2.70
4 gigs of installed RAM (only 3.5 usable)
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 GPU
Third Party Programs
I am using 2 different third party apps to run minecraft mods and to allocate memory (not both at once) and they are the MagicLauncher and TechnicLauncher.
I didn't know how much memory to allocate to Minecraft so I experimented with the 3 different options but neither of them have seemed to delay or help the lag or crash.
Well the Technic Launcher has its own apps that are installed when running the game but the main mods I use are ModLoader, ModLoaderMP, Forge, Optifine, AudioMod, TooManyItems.
(I am aware that there are several versions of Optifine and I was wondering which would be best for best fps and reduced lag spikes?)
Now for the main issue....
I cannot seem to play minecraft for more than 30-60 minutes without it crashing (Not enough memory error) or having such bad lag that it becomes unplayable...I have updated my java. mods, launchers etc and still no luck. I know I don't have the most powerful pc out there but is there a way to enjoy the game on my rig without all these issues?
Yes I have tried running the game Vanilla with no mods or just performance enhancing mods (optifine) but still I get the issues. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it because I really miss playing this game but the issues I am dealing with make gameplay unbearable.
Thank you for your time and please if you have any questions that will help just ask, I really want these issues resolved.
