    posted a message on Mobs nerfed in 1.8, or is my game buggy?

    Any news on this issue? Is there any way to fix it? It still happens for me even in 1.8.3, and because of that I haven't been able to normally play anything in version 1.8 since its release. I just hate to play against retarded "hostile" mobs...

    posted a message on Bloom Lighting! Add Better Lighting into Minecraft without the Lag of Shaders!

    No, people just kinda surrendered since you never took them as a significant part of the users and you kept saying that that's how bloom was supossed to work, even when I showed with pics of modern games that it wasn't true. But I remember some pages ago a lot of people were asking for it.


    Bloom is not supposed to be bright, bloom can be bright, that depends on the scene. For example, when you're in a cave or outside but it's night time, this mod looks awesome, specially the moon and the torches, but when it's daytime and although the bloom lowers itself according to screen brightness, the grass looks sometimes like if it was radioactive and the sky doesn't seem sky anymore but more like just a white background.

    Speaking of which, do you think you could make some less intense variants of this? I tried myself but there are so many files and I have no idea what I'm doing!


    Seconded

    Quote from _Gothmog»

    Not only the knockback in slow motion , but the IA in hostile mobs are kinda messed up. They need a moment to recover after you hit... and this is not only annoying but makes survival a lot less (if it is possible) challenging. If its intended was a very bad idea!

    Exactly this.

    I considered myself kind of addicted to Minecraft, but since 1.8.0, I haven't touched the game, even if the performance issues got better I can't stand playing agains mobs that act like retards.

    When 1.8 came out, I always lagged on my primary desktop. Mind you, it's capable of running Minecraft. Anyways, it was buggy as all hell, it lagged and whatnot. Ever since I quit about a year ago, I've come back and it's been fine. Maybe it was the 1.8.1-1.8.3 update(s), but it's now working for me just as it did before 1.8 came out and broke it all. I should also add that in that year that I was gone, I nuked my entire hard drive. Re-installed Windows with no files. So maybe that sped it up a bit, I'm not sure.

    Has year passed since 1.8 release?

    That is how bloom works though :P

    In which game? Bloom always adapt. You, that are always talking about realism, should see how an average camera adapts the bloom.

    This is what I mean:

    Almost full bloom:




    Bloom adapts, and is almost unnoticeable now:




    Full bloom:




    Bloom 'tries' to adapt, but it's still very bright:




    I also took some pics of Battlefield 4:




    To get the bloom to lower as much as in those games, you have to look directly to the sky AND use OptiFine's zoom to look at a cloud... I think that's the problem that people have tried to express.

    The Bloom is meant to be bright.

    Hmmm, yeah, but it's also meant to adapt better. I wouldn't really want a change in brightness but a change in... automatic change in brightness! yeah. The bloom when I'm inside my house or when I'm in cave looks great, but outside and even when half of the screen is very bright, the bloom will just reduce a little bit, and I think that's what makes it a bit annoying for some users.

    posted a message on OptiFine HD (FPS Boost, Dynamic Lights, Shaders and much more)
    Is he thinking of 1.7.10? 1.7.10 has plenty support though...
    EDIT: Yeah, I've never heard anyone call 1.7.10 1.71. Anyway, 1.7.10 has a ton of support from a lot of mods, I think what you're getting is normal for all optifine.

    FTFY.

    I have used it with Seus, it seemed to work fine. But I could always make an add-on pack if there are bugs

    He's not talking about compatibility or bugs with the Shaders mod (there isn't any and it looks awesome anyways), he's talking about adding support for normal and specular maps so the lightning will look more realistic with the textures and some blocks will actually reflect light when it's raining, for example.

    Yeah, people will complain just about anywhere. Finding posts about any game being terrible isnt exactly hard. Go find a single thread about how well a game is performing, now that is hard.



    My intent in sharing my experience is to counter those that try and brush 1.8 off as being all around terrible and unoptimized or whatever, when my experience says the exact opposite. The game performs better then it ever has. And my 5 computers beats your 4 friends. All vastly different hardware as well.



    I have a very difficult time believing that 1.8 is as bad as people make it out to be around here. Some people have major issues, I know, but I doubt its a vast majority. The poll on this thread alone is vague and doesn't prove anything. 1.8 may have cause your FPS to drop some, but that doesn't mean its not performing well.

    Alright, lets say it's not the majority. But then, why would you be mad at people that complain? Why is it wrong? Sure that posts like "UH THE GAME IS BROKEN CUZ MOJANG CHANGED ROSES TO POPPIES" or "UH, 3D SNOUTS FOR PIGS DO NOT FIT MINECRAFT'S ART STYLE, THE GAME IS RUINED" are stupid af, but because people complain too much, are you gonna act like if it were people's fault the fact that they get a bad performance in 1.8? Or is it just because you don't have said issue? What's the problem with it?

    Source?

    Forum posts are not an accurate representation of a userbase. How many people go to forums to post about how good something is? Few.

    Some people have issues, yes, but the true number is impossible to tell. I for one have had impeccable performance on 5 different computers. My main computer, I get a solid ~150FPS (When uncapped, and upwards of 1800FPS) and I've not been able to do anything to get it under 100.

    My main complaint is about people who still get well over 60FPS and they are complaining about 1.8 being a problem for them.

    Seriously, if you found this thread you can find pretty easly the posts I'm talking about. During the development of Optifine for 1.8, sp614x made several posts explaining in detail the changes included in said version, such as water temples being very laggy due to a screw up in water lighting, chunks not loading due to lazy code in the rendering and more. Those are the bests posts I could show you but that thread fills about 2 or 3 pages daily so I can't find them. But there more threads like this one, for example, although I would preffer having sp614x's posts.

    If you say that forum posts are not an accurate representation of a userbase then it achieves nothing in this discussion to post only your experience with 1.8.

    It's not just this thread that tells that the majority of players have lag. I've seen it in Facebook, YouTube, plenty of other threads and in IRL; I have three friends of mine that play Minecraft with me and we're stuck in 1.7 because all of us have lag issues in 1.8, so that's a 4/4 people lagging, with very different PCs. If by having all that in mind you're still not convinced that this is a problem that affects a huge amount of Minecraft users, then let me know because I certainly won't continue with this...

    Lastly, as some have said, it's not just FPS, it's the general smoothness, the IA getting worse, chunk loading problems, block lag, etc. But even if it were just the FPS, that does not mean that people can't complain just because they can still play at 60 FPS; What it was for the hardware to play the game at 200 FPS before, might be the same load of work to play at 60 FPS in 1.8, meaning that some PCs can run hotter. Minecraft should not work like that in a update that was meant in part to increase the performance.

    That is oxymoronic. Fallacies are inherently false.

    Corrolation =/= Causation

    Also consider that programs become more demanding over time, so a decrease in performance between versions is understandable. 1.8 may very well be the cause, but you can't use false logic to support it.

    That's just overcomplicating something too simple. 1.8 caused tons of unnatural lag for most Minecraft players and it's something that 99% of people, even including people whose performance is the same, would agree on. Just check all the threads and posts out there about this, not only the most simple ones that just say "i got lag when i updated to 1.8" but also the ones that explain further the possible causes of lag in 1.8 such as previous OptiFine's developer posts where he explains in detail what exactly changed in 1.8 that is what is causing all these issues.

    "Also consider that programs become more demanding over time"

    I sure considered it, but going from 170-270 FPS to 32-50 FPS is just ridiculous, and there are worse cases.

    Post hoc ergo propter hoc


    This is a logical fallacy.

    It is, but it's still true, because it's not like he can't go back to 1.7 to check; If in 1.7 it works fine but in 1.8 it does not, and you try changing versions many, many times but it still happens, it's 1.8's fault.

    You couldn't tell the difference. Most all monitors are capped at 60FPS, so anything above 60 is literally unnoticeable and effectively wasted.

    That's true, but I might know what he's reffering to. Despite the game saying it's at 60 FPS, it still has "mini-lag spikes" that make it feel like 30-40 FPS. It really is less smooth.
