    posted a message on Need help with Graphics Cards
    Basically, here's my story:

    Last Christmas, my brother and I got a computer that we had to share. I fell in love with Minecraft, and my computer was okay. Here were the specifications:

    Processor: AMD Athlon II P340 Dual Core
    Graphics Card: AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250

    My birthday was coming around and I wanted an upgrade. So when I got a new computer, I made sure to get a good processor. I got an i3 thinking that that would be enough to make Minecraft run smoother (I was getting like 50fps average on my old one, I had no problem, just needed an upgrade) but I ended up screwed over, because me not knowing that GPU's are linked with Processors (for the most part at least) accidentally eended up with an "Integrated Intel HD" graphics card, and as you can probably guess, Minecraft sucked on it.

    Now I'm retrying because I returned that old computer. I found the computer that's perfect for me, i5, 6GB RAM, 640GB HDD but I don't want to make another mistake with the graphics card. The graphics card on this perfect computer is exactly this according to the website:


    Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 [HDMI, VGA]
    1GB DDR3 Radeon(TM) HD 6470M Graphics [HDMI, VGA]


    Will that be good enough to play Minecraft on, or at least comparable to my "AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250" or will it be sort of like the Integrated Intel HD?

    tl;dr Will the "Intel HD Graphics 3000 1GB DDR3 Radeon HD 6470M Graphics" be good enough to play Minecraft on with far render distance, smooth lighting, fancy graphics, etc. and get a decent FPS (at least 40fps)? Or is it comparable to the "Intel Integrated HD" graphics card, AKA the worst GPU ever that didn't let me play MC with a fps more than 10?

    Actually, I'm gonna expand upon my previous post.

    Any Aether Collab Mod related posts in this thread will be warned for posting Off Topic.

    Please report any such posts from here on out.

    I don't want to see this thread locked because I think there's still a place for it and it's unfair to shut it down just because a lot of people can't read.


    I'm confused. Difference between this and the "Aether Collab Mod"?

    - Corrected a block duplication bug when using pistons
    - Corrected a redstone torch duplication bug when using pistons
    - Corrected a client crash when placing a sign in front of the piston, powering the piston and then removing the block beneath the sign
    - Ice blocks are now pushed without causing water streams breaking everything
    - Booster rails are no longer being powered magically without a power source
    - Pistons connected to the end of a piston-transistor via redstone are now properly closed when the power goes out
    - Doors no longer create purple particles
    - Hacking clients can no longer edit texts of placed signs in multiplayer
    - Changed so that paintings pushed by pistons will pop off

    omg u are an idiot use essentials group manager or any permissions plugin


    You are the perfect example of someone that annoys me. You assume that everyone shares your brain, and if they don't, then they are an idiot.

    To the OP, you have to be running Bukkit (server mod) and then install Permissions 3.0 and iChat. In your permissions config files, there's a "prefix" and "suffix" setting for each group you create. iChat will use those to implement them into chat. Other plugins such as HeroChat would work too, but it has to be a chat plugin because Permissions will do NOTHING at all with the "prefix" and "suffix" besides delivering them to the chat plugin.

    EDIT: Sorry, this wouldn't work. I found this thread through the main page so I didn't realize it was in the "Creative" forum. My above method would only work on MC Beta, not MC Classic.

    posted a message on Most Worthless Item in Minecraft
    Quote from Mein Kraft

    Dead shrub.


    *edit: Here are my reasons as to why:

    The reason why I feel so strongly about the dead shrub is because it is an item, just one that can't be added to your inventory without hacking. 'You can't mine it nor craft it' is exactly my point. It's generated in desert biomes on new chunks, it's yet one more thing Minecraft has to render, you get nothing when destroying it, and even if you want it for aesthetic purposes, you cannot obtain one legitimately and must build around it.

    posted a message on When did you start playing with redstone?
    I've done simple redstone stuff for a long time, like opening doors and stuff, but my real creativity started Thursday night or Friday night. I don't remember, but all of my friends who play MC basically talk in one large Skype chat and it took 1 of them to mention pistons and how cool it was for us all to get hooked, addicted and basically much more interested in SSP again.

    (By the way, if you're a Minecraft addict with Skype, you should PM me your username if you enjoy talking about MC)

    I've made simple trapdoors, conveyor belts, auto-house builders, closing-wall traps, other types of traps, auto-harvesters, basically a lot of stuff. I have a flatgrass map with all of my redstone contraptions on it. The last time I played, I was on contraption #10.

    Are the next two parts actually going to be tutorials? I want to know how to make it, not an extended showcase.

    Show us your .yml file. We will be able to spot out the problem instead of going back and forth with no success.

    er, you cannot use tabs, it has to be ALL spaces. It's simpler just to use regular notepad, you know exactly what is added then. :dry.gif:
    one wrong space and the WHOLE file is corrupt and won't work.


    Thats why .json is better than .yml, yet so many plugin devs still use .yml /

    People, telling him to turn off Max FPS won't help. Like I said in my earlier post, I was in the same situation, and sure he can get used to a Tiny Render Distance and a 40FPS cap, but the point is he shouldn't have to (with those computer specs). He needs help AVOIDING having to use those settings.

    I think I know why. It's a Dell.

    No joke, I had an Inspiron 15R a bit ago (before I returned it and bought a new computer) because usually graphics card are associated with processors, especially if the processor is AMD. In Dell's case, they can basically install an i3 (or an i7 in your case) and trick people (like us) into buying their product.

    If your graphics card is "Intel Integrated HD" then you better send back your Dell or kiss Minecraft goodbye.I fell for the same trick. You can find out your graphics card by pressing start and typing "Device Manager" in the search bar. Then click on "Display Adapters". Tell us everything that's listed there.

    EDIT: Just curious, did you buy your computer online?

    Make a backup of your bin folder (C:/Users/<Name_here>/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft) before you update next time. Notch's rule says that nobody on these forums can send you a copy of our backups since he doesn't want people re-distributing his stuff, but you *may* "find" someone's backup through Google.
