Low End computer user suggestion

Recommended Posts

HP compaq with inboard graphics and sound


Intel Celeron CPU 2.6 ghz  with 1.9 gb ram


Windows XP pro O.S.



My main computer crapped out temporarily and I had this backup computer I use with a ton of hard drives.

This computer the way it is now, with no adaptors, does not run Minecraft in Single player very well at all, until I did some tinkering anyway.


The results are a setup easy to use and play with.


MultiMC for windows makes installing Forge and related mods very easy.


Optifine mod added a huge group of stuff to the Vanilla MC options menu video settings.

Turn off nearly everything you can find in there, before creating a world.

Turn off Snooper settings.

You can always turn some of this stuff back on later if you get good FPS.

create a world with the superflat  terrain option.


When I enter this world I get 32 FPS when I press the F3 function key.


The types of mods chosen should make no difference, however, extensively complex machinery will drain the resources of even the best of computers.


How this works:

Optifine reduces the graphics load, while switching to Flat terrain reduces CPU load since the chunks the cpu deals with are much smaller.


This same setup will work in Linux systems as well, provided the older computer you are trying to use has good Linux drivers.

A kind and thoughtful post. Especially nice considering that you can almost fully customize the flat terrain anymore in recent versions of MC. :)


I got a new computer some time before 1.3.2 came out. The computer I'd been running before was an old 2002 Dell XP with half a GB of RAM... So you can imagine how suckish the experience was for me for a while. Especially creepers.


Anyways, I can totally see the use for a post like this, and can personally relate. Thanks for this. :D

Currently in the process of adding some mod support for JohnSmith Texture Pack.
