    It's around this time I actually got in contact with my real life best friend over the phone and asked him to let everyone know I was alright. Sorry I didn't have much more to go off of to have him relay at the time.

    ...

    I didn't send an anonymous person, I was on the phone with a friend, he mentioned people were thinking I was dead and I asked him to let everyone know I was alright.

    ...

    I didn't give him one because I was operating off of limited information myself at the time and had no estimates for when I'd be able to return to the community, let alone the status of the pack.


    I would think this would be enough to confirm my identity, but oh well. It's not about me, Misa is back!

    I'm guessing you haven't experienced moving yet. Even though we had more than enough to pay for a connection at where we were moving to, it took us more than a week to finally get one. Yeah, to be honest, it was hell for me. Like VashTS240 said, moving saps a lot of your free time.

    Also, even before saotomato commented that she is below the "poverty line", Misa's old comment saying she may end up homeless should've given you guys a clue that she can't afford things like a smartphone.

    Not all areas have free Internet terminals, either. In fact, I almost forgot there is such a thing. I live in a city, and I'm not aware of any free Internet terminal here nor in the neighboring cities. There are free WiFi hotspots, but only people with mobile devices can enjoy them.


    Seriously, I live in the largest city in the US and I haven't seen a public computer since the 90's. And from what I understand (I haven't been to her new place) Misa is basically going to be in the middle of nowhere, because that's the cheapest place to live.

    There is a donate button on the first page. I just put in $10, wish I could do more, but as a group we may be able to help Misa out. Even if she's unable to continue the pack its been more then worth the $10 for the enjoyment the pack has added to my Minecraft experience.


    Yeah, I know she appreciates every little bit. She had been planning to buy a new computer because her old one (the one she does all her artwork on) was on its last legs, but I think she had to spend it all on the move instead. I'm hoping her old PC survives the move, but I'm going to be donating too-- I absolutely cannot play Minecraft without her pack.

    I think we all know Misa from her posts well enough to know that if she had something she wanted us to know about her health or whereabouts, she wouldn't send in some anonymous person claiming to be her RL friend whose profile doesn't even give their age, gender, or location to deliver the first information we've heard about her for 6 months.

    I've reported your post and hope others will do the same.


    Heh, being reported wasn't exactly the response I was expecting. I am legit who I say I am, but come to think of it I guess me just saying that in a post isn't that convincing. Look, I don't have many posts on here because I just don't post here often. Misa and I did not meet on this forum so I don't know why I should be expected to have a million posts on here or something. I know everyone has a lot of questions for Misa, but it's not my place to speak for her, so I won't. We simply spoke on the phone (and NO, she does NOT have a smart phone-- people who live below the poverty line do not spend money on a data plan), I mentioned that people on here were worried about her, and she asked me to let you all know she's still alive. That is all.

    Hey folks,

    I'm one of Misa's IRL friends and we've been in contact intermittently throughout her move. She's still not able to get online, but she wanted me to tell you all that she's not dead. That's all I've got for now; she just wanted you all to know she's okay.

    Oh, and also, she wanted me to thank you all for your continued support during her absence.

    Regarding performance:

    I did some tweaking and noticed some major performance differences in this version when Advanced OpenGL is turned off. With it on, my FPS ranges from 15 to 35, with an average when no chunks are loading of about 30. With Advanced OpenGL turned off, I'm getting between 40 and 120 FPS, with an average when no chunks are loading of about 95. This seems to be consistent across my maps, and no other setting has such an effect.

    For the record, my JAVA heap size is set at 4gb and I'm running a 3.0ghz quad-core CPU with a Radeon HD7850.

    Anyway, if you're getting performance issues, try turning off Advanced OpenGL if you haven't already.

    and i tryed the new misa it just give me blackscreen on beta 1.2


    The most common cause of this is someone trying to install MCPatcher and Optifine at the same time.

    I had serious issues downloading the pack. I tried to download 4 times, always getting pop ups, no download. Then, I got captcha crap! The first time there were no captcha words to input, it was just a FedEx ad, then when I tried again, the captcha words were completely illegible. Finally, my 7th try I could download the pack. I think someone should look into this. It is a mess. Love this textue pack by the way!


    I'm assuming you're using the adf.ly link. That's an ad service that allows texture artists like Misa to get revenue from their work without charging for it. She includes that as an optional link for people who want to support her (and really, we all should), but if that link gives you trouble use one of the alternates.

    Misa only responds to permission requests via PM's; you need to send her a message. Also, she's away for the next three weeks, spending the holidays with family.

    I'm not sure, but did Misa say she was going to release her random mobs as a separate pack for people who just want the random mobs and nothing else. I can't recall.


    Misa has stated in the past that she won't post her Randomobs separately because it's too much work for her to keep both the pack and separate Randomobs files updated. She did at one point offer Randomobs separately, but has said she won't do so again.

    How do I disable mipmapping ??


    Run MCPatcher again, and under the 'Options' tab, in the HD Textures box, you should see a checkbox that says "Enable Mipmaps." Uncheck it and patch.

    I'm sorry. I don't know if she's referring to remixing the content in the pack or using the texturepack in screenshots and videos that I need permission from. I do want to make an HD texture pack using this one as a base. Do I need permission for that?


    You don't need permission if it's only for personal use. If you're going to publish it in any way, then you need Misa's permission.

    posted a message on This profanity filter is the most useless thing in the world.
    Quote from Nimphina

    If you barely see them, what's the problem with banning them then?


    This can be an argument for not doing anything about the profanity; it cannot be an argument for a profanity filter. If it's not a problem, don't do anything about it. You can't say "It's not a problem, therefore we're going to go out of our way to fix it." That's ridiculous reasoning.

    And your profanity filter is flawed in more ways than it just being impossible to turn off. Instead of censoring, it DELETES. Meaning you completely lose the intended meaning, and it simply comes across as confusing. You're causing more harm than good.

    it not you are an idiot and others which misa philosophize let it to me will tell instead of they type the cleverest. And probably something another ask in other structures.
    I simply wanted to make specular animation in fashions.
    At misa patches of light it is a part of an esthetics and it will not be beautiful without these animation.
    And I it is simple in previous the message it was angered and wanted to state that wanted

    and I meant that the cleverest is those people who speak for misa

    and I am not able to write to pm
