Hello all. I've played Mc for years and have always been big into modding. I've played with forge since forge was born and never had near as much trouble as I'm having now.
I have been playing with 1.7.10 and forge mods for years, and everything seems to either run or it doesn't. Pretty easy. Just takes removing the ones that don't play nice.
Recently, I wanted to try and switch to 1.8.9 for Intangible/Chisels and Bits. Did the thing, everything went fine. My wife likes mods that add furniture, so I added Crayfish's Furniture Mod. Never had trouble with it on 1.7.10. I also wanted Biomes O' Plenty, because Biomes O' Plenty is pretty great. Also never had trouble with it on 1.7.10. I also added a few other mods, but those are pretty much not worth mentioning because I've tried it bared and stripped down to solely Intangible, Chisels and Bits, BOP, and Crayfish Furniture.
For some reason, BOP, Crayfish Furniture, and more than a few other mods bring my game to an absolute crawl in 1.8.9, no matter which forge version I try. Title Screen, In game, Everything. I've tried with and without Optifine. I've tried this WIP mod for 1.8.9 that does essentially the same thing as Optifine. I just can not figure this out. I go from having 100-200 fps to 1 or 2 fps about every 3 seconds or so. Nothing is working. I've researched if other people are having these issues, but find nothing. If I add all the mods together, the title screen is at a standstill. I've used these same mods on 1.7.10 since forever.
I understand rendering changed in 1.8. I'm just hoping this doesn't basically spell the end for my modded life.
TL;DR Version: Mods that once worked fine on my computer in 1.7.10 no longer work when updated to 1.8.9 with updated 1.8.9 mods. Game crawls, unplayable. Help please!
Note: My computer isn't real great. The graphics is Intel HD Family 4400 garbage. 12 Gigs of RAM, use 8 for mc for the hell of it. Same setup I've used in 1.7.0, which still works perfectly. Vanilla 1.8.9 also works flawlessly by itself. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas.
I've tried taking out BOP, which would be fine if it was the only issue. Other mods are also causing this issue. AbyssalCraft for example makes me game go from normal to low fps every 3 seconds or so. Out of about 45 mods, 1/3rd of them cause this issue, and as I said they work on 1.7.10 perfectly. So what I'm curious about is what about going up in versions causes random spurts of lowering fps. It's almost like certain mod combinations create this effect. But it's not constant (granted I get into the actual game. Sometimes it's too slow to connect). It's only when either looking around in certain places or every 3 to 5 seconds. I could understand world gen causing an issue, but I use BOP in 1.7.10 just fine. It causes no lag for me or low fps or whathaveyou.
The mod number never really mattered on 1.7.10. I've had upwards to around 80 mods on 1.7.10 and ran fine without crashes (granted they work together and play nice. Give or take a few). I can't seem to run more than 12-13 mods right now. Even then though, crashing isn't an issue. The game loads, and if it's not too slow to actually get into the game, the game starts, the world loads, etc. It's just working fine for about 5 seconds after the world and chunks load, then it gets choppy every 3 to 5 seconds. It runs fine for a few seconds, then gets choppy again. It's like jumping from 100-200 fps to 1 or 2 every few seconds. I don't understand this haha. I'm playing with VBO's turned on, which is what some suggest. Graphic settings on low just to see, still happens.
But for the record, I have 10 mods that actually *run* just fine. The problem is wanting these other mods to also work/seeing if anyone else has this issue.
