Hello, I'm new!

4231 Views 20 Posts Minecraft
Hello! I'm new here and to minecraft and trying to get kudos to play on the mincraft server so I thought I'd take the opportunity to ask for a little help.

I just bought minecraft a few days ago (and im hooked already) and I have trouble running minecraft with my render distance anything higher than short, though I usually play with it set to tiny. Kinds sucks.

Getting a new laptop is out of the question unfortunately for the moment, so what I'm wondering is if there is a good low res texture pack that anyone knows of that might help, and would one of these work in multiplayer?

And I don't know WHAT I'm gonna do when skyrim comes out.. no way is that gonna run on this thing :/
welcome.. pc.mmgn.com/... the proper thread for minecraft.. yes you may need a new laptop or PC :)

try turning the graphics to fast
Make sure your Java is up to date, have nothing else running in the background while playing Minecraft (web browser etc).

and that, drop your draw distance as well.
I can play minecraft, watch a movie and browse on my iMac ^_^
I can play minecraft and WoW while watching a movie, listening to music, converting videos from WMV to AVI, browning the internet with 15 open tabs and download a TV series while also transferring 320gb of data from one hdd to another.

:D
Woah :( Jealous. Yeah I've set my graphics to fast, updated java, the whole shabang. It runs fine, just with the draw distance set to very low. What I was hoping for was a way to increase the draw distance :/ Ah well!
One day I'll get myself a fast pc again!

Haha yeah. I just moved to sydney and I'm still job hunting.. very very slowly.. ;)
What is minecraft? :/ I've always wondered but never asked...

You won't be sorry! And it's dirt cheap to buy with endless amounts of fun.

Edit: I should add that it's a pretty fun game where you mine blocks of various materials with which you can build all kinds of crazy things, put them together to craft other things, and generally let your creativity run wild!

if you go to one of the pc help threads, post your current specs, then someoen might be able to find you a cheap solution
Or better yet a cheap pc
You'll get some Kudos for completing your profile too I think?

What specs is your current system sporting? Minecraft is pretty RAM heavy from memory so you might just need to up your RAM.

Can't you assign more ram to Java when you're playing?
welcome bro :)
