How to install Optifine HD?


Average rating: 0

It was only a few days ago when I discussed about how to install Shaders Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10 . For those who are new, the mod adds the ability to use shaders in-game which gives more realistic lighting and shadows to the game. But, using shaders also requires a good computer with high-end graphics card which isn’t really accessible to everyone. That’s where Optifine comes into play! It gives the option to enhance Minecraft not just by adding more effects but by improving FPS as well. The performance drop is significantly lower than that of Shaders Mod, while still adding a good amount of eye candy to the game.

So how do we install this beauty? Here’s what you need to do:

1) Download Optifine from here .

2) Go to .minecraft/ bin and open Minecraft.jar with winrar or 7zip

3) Drag all the contents in Optfine’s zip into Minecraft.jar

4) Delete META-INF from the jar

5) Done!

P/s: If you don’t want to download Optifine, just use this link . It redirects you to a site where it automatically downloads optifine for your current minecraft version.

How to use Optifine 1.17.1?

Once you have downloaded and installed Optifine, open Minecraft launcher and make sure to change the render distance to 8. This is required for most of the features to work properly. Other than that, all you need to do next is press F11 twice in-game. The first time turns on/off some extra shader effects while the second will allow you to see the FPS.

Benefits of using Optifine

1) Improved GUI – Instructions and hotkeys are marked with different colors. The tooltip is transparent, making it easier for you to read tooltips placed on the screen. And the best part? Scroll on any section of a book and it reveals all its contents in a new page. Take a look!

2) FPS boost – Like I mentioned before, Optifine gives stable FPS boosts without the need of using shaders which usually cause 1-4 fps drop. Some features even allow you to turn on/off effects and change their intensity to ensure that your computer can handle it.

3) Support for HD Textures – Optimized texture loading should also be improved so your game would run a lot smoother.

4) Fixing Texture Bugs – This is one of the most exciting features I have been waiting for! No more weird-looking textures from either mod or from vanilla minecraft. It fixes all the weird-looking blocks and missing glyphs in Minecraft.

5) Loading Screen Tips – This is perhaps one of the features I like the most. Every time you open your inventory with Optifine, there’ll be a short tip or advice on how to improve your gameplay.

So, what are you waiting for? Install Optifine HD now and start enhancing Minecraft today!


1) If you are experiencing problems with Optifine, make sure to download the latest version.

2) The mod is currently in BETA mode so it may contain bugs .

3) Don’t forget to change your render distance back to 8 after installing Optifine!
