The game is $20, not $10. And since Classic mode (which is what you play) is very simple, I doubt paying for it will make it run any better since the maps are MUCH larger in BETA.

Depends, how is your internet and how is your computer?

Playing online will rely heavy on the internet connection. If you're getting lag, it might be caused by a poor internet connection. However, that's not to say it is your internet connection. The PC could still cause it.

If your PC is good and your internet sucks, then the SSP in the paid version would be much smoother.

You could check either, post specs to ask, etc, and figure it out.

In my experience, the minecraft classic is a lot lighter than the full version.

Also, yeah, the game is around $21, not $10. It varies based on the rate of exchange tho. A Euro is normally around $1.40 though.

This is incredibly false.

We can't help if you don't help us first.

Post your computer specifications here so we can see if you will run it smoothly.

Example:
OS
CPU
Ram
Graphic Card

That stuff.

I tried classic the other day and my laptop runs the full game easily and I had a few stutter moments on classic so strangely it runs the full game better. My internet connection isn't bad, not the best around but good enough to play online and download at a decent speed. I don't know why it plays the full game better so I can't decide whether it would help you but if it does this for me it then it is possible.

Download this. Should be a good enough representation.

Lag isn't caused by the quality of the connection?
