OptiFine Mod HD FPS Boost

OptiFine Mod adds a lot of options for better looks and performance. Doubling the FPS is common. Moves fog away, adds mipmaps, chunk loading control (mod CAF), Smooth FPS, brightness control, VSync and many other. This mod is amazing like Better Than Wolves or BuildCraft Mod

OptiFine Mod farview can extend your viewing distance up to a factor of 3, which is excellent if you need to grab a distant view of a particular object or landmark for whatever reason. You can tweak the night and day settings to allow infinite day or night. And of the coolest options by far is OptiFine clear water setting. This will allow you to see underwater for miles which is especially useful on some of the maps mods that feature really deep water.

the description below the links says that the links will take you to the 1.2.3 download. they will be updated when the 1.2.4 download is ready. it should be today because he is just checking for bugs.

does it still work though (for 1.2.4 even though it’s 1.2.3 download)because I know that some mods don’t need changes and just work is that what you meant by checking for bugs, just seeing if it needs changes?

Your 1 GB memory card has nothing to do with this mod it depends on your graphics card if your able to run MC or not.

i have a hopeless graphics card (Intel R HD graphics), will this mod make minecraft faster for me?

i have the same graphics card and no it will not i’ve tryed all versions get the ultra hd for hd texture packs and its faster

I just get a black screen :( i have tried this mod about 3 times but i keep either getting the stuck loading screen, or the black screen. I followed the instuctions and i had the right option for winrar. help?
i know how to fix the black screen but not while having the mod.

Here is what i did: so while i was trying this out i realized not meta-INF folder but i still did it and got black screen, next i replaced minecraft.jar with a fresh one. Then i went in to minecraft-1.2.3.jar and did it and it worked… So insted of minecraft.jar put it in minecraft-1.2.3.jar and of course delete the meta-INF folder… and always back up the .jar file

Reset your bin file then try again. I’m pretty sure you will have the META-INF File. To reset your bin type %appdata% then you should come up with .minecrsft click it then delete the bin, close everything load minecrft, then log in and your bin should be reset.

the problem is that this optifine link is still 1.2.3 :
“Note : Link above still 1.2.3, we will update soon if this mod has update to 1.2.4″, and so will not operate properly with minecraft 1.2.4

hopefully this helps

you probably need to reinstall your minecraft or force update and then re perform the mod install and it might work. note:you need to delete META-INF

if you get black screen than just make your backup minecraft.jar your main minecraft.jar, if you didn’t make a backup than copy your saves to your desktop, delete .minecraft folder and minecraft.exe, download again from, and put your saves back in .minecraft. (If it dosent work, play in browser, than try again) Hope this helped :D

Maybe you need modloader? And if you’ve got multiple mods it might conflict with them. Hope it helps.

OK guys i installed it just a few minutes ago then i have the problem I opened Minecraft and then i select texture packs then my game crashes and solutions?

@XZenoZX. I don’t think that has anything to do with Optifine, If the Texture Pack is large, and your computer can’t handle the fast change, Then it is bound to crash the game, If this happens, just close the crashed one with ‘Task Manager’ And open up a new Minecraft, That one should have the Texture Pack turned on.

Okay, so I get a black screen, but there is no META-INF folder to delete in order to resolve this issue. It isn’t there…

ok to resolve this issue let me just state that optifine has not updated yet. optifine is still in 1.2.3

this is not the official 1.2.4, and this is not the official page. This is just the 1.2.3 version relisted, and it is not compatable with minecraft 1.2.4. you will need to force update on minecraft or/ restore your backup jar if you made one

Does this work for amazing PC’ s too (FPS booster)? Because I already got a PC that can easily handle everything.

It makes your framerate smoother, you can preload more chunks and you can effectively triple your viewing distance. I think it’s an essential mod.

have you opened your minecraft jar file and looked for the meta inf folder instead of being lazy

thank you this mod is wonderful. notch should it to vanilla minecraft in the next update

If anyone has TooManyItems and uses this, that’s what’s causing it to crash due to file conflictions :\ …I can’t get it to work on mine either.

Wrong… I have TooManyItems, buildcraft, equivalent exchange, Better Dungeons, Better world Generation, Clay Soldiers, Custom Painting, Decorative Mod, Death Chest mod, millénaire, Mob Spawner control, Power Craft, Rei’s minimap, Timber! and Many more… It’s a heavily modded minecraft yet the only mod which stopped working when i installed “HD_B Smooth” is the (Wild Caves Mod) But if i change back to the original texture pack it start working again..

So many spam download ads… Oh well, thanks for the mod! Now I can start playing, and get my blog running with some screenshots! Thanks, mate.

If you get the black screen, it’s either you have not deleted the META-INF file or… the OptiFine you downloaded (HD_B or HD_B Smooth) is not compatible with your system.

Black screen people i hav a solution i was experiencing the same problem then i read the forums…………’s not compatible with modloader :(

I actually can’t believe that I can’t run my mods with OptiFine. I know it’s modded right but it’s mainly the overwriting of the vh.class file. Who knew that it’s one or the other. XD I just want massive fps boostage and fun stuff. Why make me pick! XD

Finaly !! I have modded my Mc with pretty much all the good mods out there including Millénaire, BuildCraft and Many more…

But OptiFine wouldn’t work… But now i just saw those fix, tried the multicore, was able to run the texture pack but still had ghostly texture flashes… Then installed “HD_B Smooth”. BINGO! Finaly all my mods and hd textures work all together ! Yay !

What are the difference between the Optifine download links? Are any of them better then the others?

Depend on ur computer / setup… Try, if doesn’t work properly try another one……

The only mod that stopped working when i installed it (WildCaves) now work perfectly i just had to re-install it dehh XD

So if everything done properly everything should work with no problem.. Maybe ur computer is unable to follow… Ordinosaur syndrome XD

after 5 mins minecraft crashes and says out of memory. i have 3gb ddr2 and 2.8ghz dual core processor. i set everything to default and it still crashes

if you have a lot of mods and doing some heavy stuff (like setting off a whole inventory of TNT), then Minecraft can’t handle it.

Hope this helps!

Dang, it doesn’t work with Better Than Wolves….Well I guess I’m getting rid of BTW then :( Optifine is too useful to stick with BTW.

NOTE : Link above still 1.2.3, we will update soon if this mod has update to 1.2.4


Read the fine print before you download and install people! This is a very bad posting. The file you downloaded is 1.2.3. NOT 1.2.4. That is the reason for the black screen and inability to load minecraft.

Did these people learn ANYTHING about 1.2.4!? They added entirely new blocks, which means that every mod has to be updated! The Optifine mod is NOT for 1.2.4! Just look at the thread on the MC Forums.

If u people are getting glsl shaders u need a glsl graphics card for youre computer if or just a good graphics card that supports optifine

What do the different downloads mean

Download OptiFine 1.2.4 Mod for Minecraft 1.2.4 (HD_B)

Download OptiFine 1.2.4 Mod for Minecraft 1.2.4 (HD_B Smooth)

Download OptiFine 1.2.4 Mod for Minecraft 1.2.4 (HD_B Multi Core)

what do each of them do different

first one is standard which always works. smooth is an extended version of standard but doesn’t work with some computers. Makes fps a lot smoother if it works. Multi-Core is an extended version of smooth but like before it doesn’t always work with some computers.

To whoever wrote this: please don’t put up links to 1.2.3 mod versions that havent been updated saying they have.

Good going to increase traffic to your site with false information. To everyone reading this, go to minecraft forums and download the ALPHA version of 1.2.4 compatible Optifine. I use it myself and works just fine, there’s no bugs that prevent you from playing at a good framerate. Use it with magiclauncher!

I have tried both of the following files with proper installation and all i have gotten is a black screen:

Download OptiFine 1.2.4 Mod for Minecraft 1.2.4 (HD_B)
Download OptiFine 1.2.4 Mod for Minecraft 1.2.4 (HD_B Multi Core)

My Minecraft is updated to 1.2.4, so I assume that is the problem. Does anyone know when the Optifine update will be released?

hey, you guys need to update to 1.2.4…. i cant use the mod anymore i just get a black screen after login after i put it into the code..

People please, this will take time. They can’t just poop an update of a mod every time an update releases. Just be patient and sooner or later it’ll come out.

Just heard they will be updating to 1.2.5 in a few days for a real update. Now i guess I’ll wait another 2 weeks…

all three links download the exact same file. are there not 3 versions yet, or are the links just wrong?

OH HELL NO!!! My minecraft is terrible slow without optifine then when it finally comes it conflic with modloader just like in minecraft 1.2.3 CRAPTASTIC!!!

When I download it there is written that it is in the temp folder but it isn’t in there an when I open it up in the download folder there is written Access to the ZIP-compressed folder denied.
Here is the place where it seems to be but it isn’t there:

Update for 1.2.4 is 99% complete, so the smooth and multicore and other versions of optifine are coming VERY soon.But it isn’t ready yet, there is only the prewiew A2 version of optifine now. If you want smooth or multicore version, WAIT.

your settings should be something like: FOG:off RENDER DISTANCE:tiny WATER:clear Animations:(Turnoff) void, drippies, and water[all the other stuff is up to you] PARTICLES:Decreased DEBUG PROFILER:off.
The rest you can play around with.
DO NOT: have Minecraft Forge installed. MF does NOT work with optifine and will slow you down tremendously.

Hey tell me, does the 1.2.5 update of Optifine work for 1.2.4 because right now i can’t fine the download link for 1.2.4 minecraft

it doesn’t work, i did everything needed, and i get a black screen. fix it!!!! don’t post if it don’t work!

I deleted META-INF and it didnt say to replace the files when I transfered them, then when I went on to the game in the texture pack folder was empty and dirt background then after 2mins it auto-closed the game…

im using optifine to improve FPS greatly on minecraft
however i have encountered a memory leak issue with it whenever its in use.
It just eats up memory until minecraft crashes
anyone encountered this?

I noticed this as well when I had the multi-core chunk loading selected. I have an i3 CPU so it should make use of it, but it seems to crash my system after just a few short minutes.

if you have problem with it downloading it…try using mcpatcher and patch it ther and uncheck all mods when you open the mcpatcher and it should work…..i know it will work because it worked here

ok so im using 7zip and im unable to paste the files from the optifine into the 7zip window. any help would be appriciated

with the clay soldiers mod the items become invisible. they are visible once u place them but i would greatly apprecaite a fix for this as i love both mods.

Can someone help me install optifine maybe with teamviewer or skype?? Or something that can help me without viruses and me having to download

this is the best mod ever i looked at my fps it was in the 20s the 30s and the 50s best mod ever

OMG it’s not updated for 1.3 yet! It has already been over 10 hours since release! What’s going on here?

I’m having some problems installing this. I used OptiFine before in 1.2.5 and was greatly looking forward to the update, but now that it’s here, I can’t install it! I’m on a Mac, and I followed the correct instructions to the letter, but when I go to run Minecraft and log in, it’s stuck on the Mojang screen. I’ve tried deleting the META-INF file, but it appears to be nonexistent anyway. Can anyone help?

Btw, I’ve found no one else with this problem.

Thank you very much. This mod made my minecraft run smoothly, I’m enjoying it much more than before. Actually I think this is better than buildcraft or so.


I think the download links are broken (I get the some message as kospro). I am using IE9 with the default Internet security settings and the default Win7 firewall.


My minecraf crashed, when i downloaded optifine on my compputer. Tho it was for 1.3.1 and my minecraft is 1.3.1


Same problem as QueenOfTheDerps, only on pc. Deleted meta-inf and copied files over but now minecraft goes black before the mojang logo appears.

That happened to me a while back too. Don’t worry! This is normal as minecraft is loading some files it didn’t know it had, and probably has script in all the default files to stop the screen going black. This is also why you get the black screen of death. It just freezes on this screen!

When i go to adfly the page is like broken for me, instead of showing like, you know the blue frame around it and the “wait 5 seconds” its white, and so i cant download anything. please help

Hello, i have been having the problem that when i download Optifina and then install it in my minecraft lots textures dissappear and the ones that do not glitch out showing wrong textures, i need help, i cam barely play minecraft without optifine

OptiFine 1.3.2 Mod for Minecraft 1.3.2 (HD B2 Ultra) – Black Screen

OptiFine 1.3.2 Mod for Minecraft 1.3.2 (HD A2 Ultra) – Black Screen

OptiFine 1.3.2 Mod for Minecraft 1.3.2 (HD A1 Ultra) – Works Fine.

I tried installing all 3 versions using the magic launcher and none were working there were 16 errors with A2 and B2 and 13 errors with A1.

Has anyone been able to get this version of optifine working? If so could you give me any pointers on where i’m going wrong?

1.3.2 version works fine with MagicLauncher 0.9.9 for me. Have you force updated to 1.3.2 MC? Open regular MC, press Force Update, and let it download the 1.3.2 one.

I downloaded the A1, A2 and B2 files, and have tried with MCPatcher and Magic Launcher. I put Modloader and Too Many Items in and it worked fine. With MCPatcher it blackscreened with Opti Fine. With Magic Launcher, it said that Opti Fine has 18 errors with all three files, and loaded the game but then crashed. Does anyone know how I can get Opti Fine to work with these?

my minecraft wont work now please help me when i copyed the .class files and open minecraft all i got was a black screen

I also have the same issue with 18 errors when I try to use Optifine through Magic Launcher, and the game goes black when I try to load it via Magic Launcher with Optifine. If I turn off Optifine, the game works, but then I have that annoying fog that I was hoping to mod with Optifine. The fog is coming from my HD mod which improves the look and feel of the game — Ovo’s Rustic v2.1.2. I am trying to get rid of the fog, but keep the HD look.

A friend of mine has this same setup and it works for him. My Minecraft Version at the time of post is 1.3.2 and my Magic Launcher is 1.0.0 (also the latest at time of post).

Any suggestions would be welcome. I am new to the MC community and completely new to modding. I only wish to do visual improvements — nothing that affects actual gameplay mechanics, i.e. no cheating or altering of the vanilla game.

Yeah, um, I installed it on my mac. It works fine, even when I open up one of my worlds, but then it crashes my minecraft. What do I do?!?!

HD A7 U for 1.4.2 is making the edge of each block visible. It looks like a very thin line where you can see between the blocks and nothing is rendered behind but the background sky colour. I have toggled every setting to see if I could find one causing it (time consuming, but I hoped to help narrow it down) but nothing was – it was present regardless of any settings. This did not happen under 1.3.2.

When I load a world with this mod, It crashes as my character enters the world. I have no idea what is happening.

is there a 64 bit version of optifine or is there only one type? i installed it and it made no difference…. getting around 10 fps

ugh. D: I keep getting black screen. I’ve followed like 10 tutorial videos STEP-BY-STEP and I still get a black screen when I log in. META INF is deleted. I’m not THAT dumb. Can someone help pl0x?

Hey, I am still playing on 1.4.2 since the server I play on hasn’t updated yet, but I get a lot of lag. I tryed to download optifine 1.4.2 but it says unknown file specified. Can you please update the download?

Could there be a direct download link? Adfly doesn’t work on my computer for some reason, it just freezes when it says “Please wait..” in the top right corner.

TNT takes too long to blow optifine with 1.4 and I have tested with and without and it sure is optifine and it is only with the 1.4 all versions with the 1.3 that works.

Whenever I try to use the blindness affect it never works.
All I see are the bubbles but it isn’t dark at all. please fix this.

Optifine works well with 1.4.6, just do it right and you’ll get it right. You will also need forge. When you go to install forge make sure you do not install modloader.

I don’t get it. I’ve tried this over and over an it just doesn’t work. I deleted the META-INF folder and copied all the .class files to the root of minecraft.jar. Once I do that, the game doesn’t boot. I don’t get a black screen or an error messages, it just doesn’t start, as if I never tried to run the game.

ugh, why is this happening?? it keeps giving me adds like, Mplayer, Iilivid and a whole bunch of other stuff i dont need! wheres optifine????


The links all point to 1.4.6 releases.

I would love to see a 1.4.7 version; I recently updated FTB 1.4.7; the 1.4.6 Optifine works with that version except that some of my redstone updates are not working – wires don’t light, trapdoors don’t animate.

Thank you for your excellent efforts

Kind regards

I tracked down a file called on another site. It looked promising. Sadly no change. Redstone updates are flaky, arriving very late or not at all; and tree growth seems to be borked – it goes on but I don’t tend to see most of it.

Any assistance would be most welcome, for me Minecraft is pretty much unplayable without this mod

Not from that I am aware of but if someone else knows any different can you please tell me?

NOTE: Does not work with minecraft 1.5 (after 3-13-13) when you have modloader installed, please fix fast.

Sincerely, Snapy1

Can you make a mod that lets you join outdated servers without having to not update? Something that will make your minecraft compatible to all versions by removing and adding items and features from your client as you go.

hey when I used this with Minecraft before 1.5, it should usually fix the textures. It doesn’t in 1.5 though! Did the mod maker change this feature? thanks!

Nope. Only works with ModLoader and not forge. Probably not with MultiMC but I don’t know :P.

It does work with forge. You have to install forge, run it, and then copy the optifine class files into the minecraft.jar. It doesn’t work with the forge mod folders.

Hi, I’ve recently tried to download Optifine 1.5 :) I hear a lot of great things about it, and wanted to see if it could help my somewhat old laptop run Minecraft a little better. Anyway, I followed the instructions to a T. META-INF is deleted, and all .class files copied over into the .jar. My only problem is, when I try to run Minecraft, like normal when I run it, I get a loading bar that says Updating Minecraft. As I said, this is normal. But now, when I try to run it with Optifine, I get the same window, but it’s stuck. The loading bar is stuck, nearly done, with the message Done Loading, but nothing is happening. Can anyone help me with this? :/

Same thing happened to me a while back i did everything i could to fix it for 2 days but it would work. I was basicly forced to deleate me minecraft and reinstal it :P

I get the same outcome as Red_Pandaa and Isaiah. I get the window that says “Updating Minecraft”, but that is as far as it goes. It’s stuck. I also tried the magic launcher and that doesn’t work either. It worked fine for 1.5, but not for 1.5.1. I am using a Macbook Pro. Help!!


I am having the same problem with 1.5.1. 1.5 worked great, but now it starts to update and stops. Hopefully this is just a bug they will get fixed soon. My laptop lags without optifine!

I’s successfully downloaded optifine 1.5.1, installed modloader 1.5.1, deleted the META-INF folder, but as soon as my Minecraft finishes loading it instantly closes itself. HELP!!! What is going on??? I tried force updating Minecraft and then it worked, but when i reinstall optfine 1.5.1, Minecraft automatically closes once it loads!!! I tried doing this both with and without modloader, but it still doesn’t work. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!

I had an issue with the link to the HD B2 Ultra version for 1.5.1… so I played around a little and found the solution. I’m posting this to save anyone who has a similar issue the trouble of figuring out what is wrong.

The HD B2 Ultra Link is Broken, because it links you to:

which should be:

The difference is the vs
The other downloads go to the instead of optifine…. so I put a d in and it sent me to the HD B2 Ultra download link…

If you think I’m just changing to url to send you somewhere you don’t want to go, check the other 1.5.1 Links… it’ll send you to optifined instead of optifine… all you need to do is click the ULTRA link and add a d, and it should work.

Enjoy :)

I am trying to install Optifine on the new tekkit for 1.5.1 and when I click download, it says that the file doesn’t exist.

I did exactly what the steps told me to do,and it makes the game crash. Sick of having to jump through 500 hoops just to get things to work the way it should. Also a readme in the optifine folder would’ve been you know..HELPFUL

This does not work for me it says. File does not exist. Make sure you specified correct file name.

the 1.6.1 links don’t work please fix this as soon as possible I basiclly rely on this mod to run minecraft

I have been waiting for days for this mod, please update it! I cant play minecraft without this Mod! UPDATE PLEASE!

me too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant play minecraft with this mod! if i dont have it, laggyyy!!!!!

Ummm…. what “META-INF folder?” 1.6 jar has no META-INF folder. I looked nothing. Really irritated right now because that means Rei’s minimap doesn’t work either seeing as this mod is one of the mods that can run it.

try using mcpatcher it makes it much easier you dont have to go to .Roaming it does everything for you ive never had a problem and the new version

there no bin folder for windows anymore . how do you install this , the step by stsp you have here is out of date.

whenever i click the 1.6.2 link (standard or ultra) windows cant open it and it closes down (this happens regularly) any idea on what to do? and for some reason i dont have a bin file but i can still play minecraft successfully.

hi guys plz can some 1 help every time i try to download it lakes me to this stupid video downloaded site thing I JUST WANT TO MOD FILE ON MY DESK TOP
