Optifine Mod


Average rating: 3.5

Optifine is an important mod for Minecraft, which concerns the graphic component of the game. Its main purpose is to improve the quality of graphics and the ability to make fine adjustments. In addition, with its help, you can use HD textures and shaders.

Installing Optifine has a positive effect on FPS. However, when using third-party textures or shaders, performance can be significantly reduced. When installing them, always consider the power of your computer.

When using the mod in the game, there will be additional graphics settings. You can set the following parameters:

  • using dynamic lighting;
  • quality of grass, leaves, etc.;
  • render distance;
  • swaying the camera and changing the viewing angle depending on the action;
  • quality of shadows and reflections;
  • display of the sky and objects on it;
  • setting the quality of textures for individual elements and much more.

How to install Optifine mod

  1. Make sure you have installed Minecraft Forge.
  2. Download the mod for your version of the game.
  3. Put it in the ‘mods’ folder, which is located in the game folder.

  • i love it its like more fps and zoom mixed

  • Er

  • se on hieno

  • Its a Great Mod!

  • Need some help for my son’s MineCraft Forge 1.12.2
    So here’s what I’ve done.
    I download OptiFine 1.12.2 jar file and placed it in the “C:\Users\nikol\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\versions” folder.
    I double click it to install it under the “Versions” folder, successfully.
    Then I downloaded the “” file.
    I moved it to “C:\Users\nikol\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resourcepacks”.
    I then extracted the zip file to the same folder and deleted the zip file.
    I then opened MineCraft
    Under “Installations” I see the “OptiFine” and “Forge”
    When I launch “Forge” I can see other mods I’ve installed for my son (ex: Engineer’s Door’s) but “Shaders” isn’t in the “MODS” menu (which if I’m reading all these instructions correctly it shouldn’t be, correct?).
    I then click “Options” menu and click the “Resource Packs” menu. There are no files under the “Available Resource Packs” heading. If I click the “Open Resource Packs Folder”, I see the “shaders” folder that I unzipped from the “” file.

    If I try launching the “OptiFine” from the minecraft launch menu it opens up but there is again nothing in this mod or resource pack menu. Also, non of my son’s other mods are there at all.

    • Put optifine.jar in \.minecraft\mods folder
      put shader file in \.minecraft\shaders folder
      launch Forge version
      go to settings>graphics>shaders and there you`ll find them

      • Thank you for the quick response, I really appreciate the help.

        I placed the optifine_1.12.2_hd_u_e1 file that I previously downloaded in the “MODS” folder
        I placed the in here “C:\Users\nikol\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\shaderpacks”
        I extracted the file there and then clicked on minecraft to launch it.
        The launcher screen comes up.
        I selected Forge1.12 and received the following error message

        Game Crashed
        An unexpected issue occurred and the game has crashed. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
        Exit Code:0

        I tried installing the optifine jar file and it was successful.
        I tried to launch the game again, same error came up.
        I tried extracting the optine file in the mods folder and then removed the optifine file and tried launching it again.
        the game loads but there is no change.
        When you say “graphics” do you mean “video settings” ? Because there is no “graphics” menu option.

      • well that was a bad idea of me extracting that OptiFine file under the mods. the launcher comes up but when I try to launch 1.12.2 forge I get the same error code 0

      • re-installed Forge and it appears that fixed the game launching however I still can get the shaders.

      • Any other suggestions?
        Not sure if looked closely at my previous responses but there is no “shaders” folder, there is only a “shaderpacks” folder. I tried creating one under the .mincraft folder and put the files there but that didn’t change anything. I also placed the shader files in the “shaderpacks” folder and launched the game, nothing in the video settings still. 🙁

        • Yes, shaderpacks is correct folder. Make sure, you laucnh version 1.12.2 and download Optifine for 1.12.2

  • How do you download optifine? I’m leaving a review and I already haven’t downloaded it. Please tell me! Thank you! Btw, don’t ask for random people’s gmail and they’re name. It is a invasion of privacy. I put in a fake email, and a fake name. Just to let you know, don’t stalk.

    Thank you!

    • Just press the according version’s button and put it underneath the minecraft player.
      If you need any further assistance, watch a video.

    • You press the download you want. Then locate the .jar file once it has been downloaded. Then, type in the search bar %appdata%, open that folder, click .minecraft, then open the versions folder. Copy the .jar file, then double click, install, then select the version in the minecraft launcher.

      On the subject of the email. There is no requirment to put in your email unless you want to send a message, a fake email like you used will do. And stalking has a completely different defenition to what your using it for. Emails are used for businesses to contact you, or for you to contact the business, they cannot veiw any private information with your email.

      I hope this helped!

      • im so confused
