Why does Minecraft lag so bad for me?

#1Xa3r0xPosted 9/4/2011 11:20:37 AM
It never used to do this to me before 1.3. But now it's been lagging and it's making me not want to play anymore. I used to play render distance on Far and on Fancy graphics and it ran perfectly fine.

I have a Nvidia Geforce 210, 4gb ram, Win 7 64bit quad core 2.4ghz. So I don't see what's the problem

For one, make SURE vsync is off. vsync will seriously kill Minecraft.

Second, download this http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/249637-173-optifine-hd-g-fps-boost/

That should clear up any problems with Minecraft for you.

Even though you have a decent video card and more than double the ram required to play the game, you might need to check your background programs to make sure your ram isn't being used to do stupid things. Like run a Google toolbar or 7 different instant messengers. Try and make it so Java or Minecraft is set to a high priority in your memory distribution and minimize the amount of programs running. Its quite possible (especially if you use Windows <_<) that between 1.3 and 1.7 your OS provider decided to tack on HUNDREDS of useless programs that would inevitably slow your computer down.

Pop-up blocker.Ad blocker. Those two things take 5 seconds to install and most browsers already have the former installed.. I hate it when people start b**** about something that can be fixed in a matter of seconds/minutes.

You're going to have to go into the more advanced settings and experiment with it a little bit. If this is the only game you play on the pc, it may be a learning experience for you, but after a little while you will eventually get it.

I play quite a few games on PC. I've been playing Minecraft for over a year and this is the first time this game crapped on me this hard. I don't have a gaming computer, but I've never had a problem running games I've wanted to play.
