    posted a message on offline skin

    not sure if this has to do with my mods or what, i have 42 when i load up minecraft according to the game, i doubt it is a mod issue but as i use mods i can't just overlook that, mods cause problems in games that is just a thing with mods. but anyway way i normally use magic launcher, but after installing a new one because tinker's construct needed a newer version.


    then like before magic launcher couldn't read the new file, it took a heck of a lot of time to get it to run on the last forge i had.


    but the issue is the main launcher when i change my skin in the jar file, 'the only way i know to change the offline skin' this works fine with magic, but the default one redownloads the jar file every time i run it, so as i play my character will turn from springtrap to steve, ironically the skin i use has a hat, so when the skin changes it looks like steve with springtrap's head.


    minecraft never did this before, so i need a workaround or fix, or fight magic launcher tooth and nail to get it running again.

    posted a message on OptiFine HD (FPS Boost, Dynamic Lights, Shaders and much more)
    it is to bad all shaders require this, because it makes my game run worse, i get chunks disappearing and just flickering like a strobe light. i've messed with all settings i could, nothing worked. it also hogs ram like crazy, normally i have a 10% to 20% ram use, with optifine 50% to 70%. texture packs are not an issue and this machine runs skyrim with a ton of mods at pretty high settings.

    i used the default textures and it still runs just as bad as my 128 packs.

    posted a message on Texture pack download widget for your texture pack with curse.com
    I used this before but i had issue after issue, then was fed up and removed it curse hates me, pretty ironic name considering.

    it kept getting blocked by my firewall for no apparent reason, yet i checked everything and it was not blocked. i'll just download like normal, if it ain't broke don't fix it in my case. but the lack of a thread with all linked textures that i can see which is mostly on the front page makes hunting annoying.

    I'm with you man.... it makes no sense sometimes. My pc is a bit outdated, but it still meets the mid-range specs for Crysis 3. (ran Rage on full settings like butter, and Skyrim with a massive HD texture overhaul + 183 mods with minimal framedrop)

    I can't even load my 256x without 2gig min allocated to java... add forge + mods and shaders on top of that..I run it with 4gig and it's still laggy sometimes. but ram has nothing to do with it... minecraft is limited to a single processor core, and that is at best limited to 2gig of memory. the added ram only acts as a bigger cache but does not help performance. (I think I understand this right...lol)


    183 mods in skyrim, to me that would kill my game, i have about 20 or so with problems. fo3 has about 50+ and can be a crash fest.

    but same here, add the shaders and the poor game is brought to it's knees. i have optifine with multicore setting, i have 4 cores it does help a bit but java seems very limited. i don't know java code or any for that matter, so i go from what i see. raising the ram in minecraft never seemed to do much, but i use magic launcher to adjust ram.

    Quote from M4Xvanced

    Example: Crafted


    yeah i found that one, only on cydia or youtube. the person was hit hard by copyrights, and the game is more different now.

    but the ones i mean are like eclipse craft [not the server app] it has pics of minecraft but is a completely different game, and most of the scams use the same concept.
    Quote from Czupo

    Yeah, there's quite a few out there.


    yeah they are, but for me i feel bad for those that fell for the scam, but regardless the reviews are funny. also it is technically art theft as well, and i don't approve, but i know they will never threaten minecraft or mojang. reading all the critic assures that.

    posted a message on minecraft scam apps
    honestly this has been bothering me. considering how many apps are on the appstore, i am shocked at how many scam minecraft apps there are.

    i'm not angry because the reviews are funny, some get the app just to rant. i wonder why mojang and apple leave them be. more apple to be honest "bigger company bigger consequences" and considering how fast some are taken down i'm shocked to see these scam apps still going.

    i have found 10 at least, i can't remember all of their names though. and i'm not going on an attack, just curious.

    quick note i'm not refering to the guides, because i know there are a ton. i'm not sure about android's store, as i don't own anything with that os, but i'm sure it has it's share of scams.

    i wonder if the reviews are simply amusing and the apps are left for that reason alone.

    i downloaded the 64x64, lol my pc is no wuss but the game almost keels over on 256. i have 8gigs of ram and 2gigs on the graphics card.

    considering flow's pack seemed to die again, and i like that one. this is a great replacement has the same feel. i love how smooth the textures look. this may become one of my regular textures.

    it's only a bit out of date, but my anvil disappears with outdated textures. i'll track this to see if it is updated.

    posted a message on Breaking News - Modding API Updates!
    sweet, as for updates i don't mind so much the mod not running so much as loading the game with an outdated mod can completely wreak my save file thing. even big games i have suffer this, not as often. fallout 3 and dao are the worst, a few mods change the game so much that removing them can cause the game to panic.

    thankfully in fo3 mods being outdated is highly unlikely as the game hasn't been updated since i got it. skyrim however <_<.

    mostly it is mods that add objects almost no interface mods or things like optifine ever have that effect. if nothing else i would like to be sure that i can remove any mod with less damage then now. right now i hardly bother with anything that adds physical objects or that change the terrain generator. or anything i can't safely remove without the dread of save file corruption.

    posted a message on lag in 1.4.4
    Quote from Saydin

    I'm sorry I can't help you, but I am getting the exact opposite.
    In 1.4 my FPS seems to have boosted by 10 or so.


    that's not the issue, exactly the problem i get is weird and hard to explain, i have the same problem in fo3, dao, skyrim, and borderlands. it's not a lag like a framerate slowdown, actually the game runs smoothly far more now then it ever did before. the problem i get is over time actions like breaking blocks, gathering items take longer to activate, the fps is unaffected.

    i have the same exact issue with dao only far worse and it get so bad that the game crashes after some time. i've run it through every fix i could find, nothing worked even got this pc i'm using and upgraded the graphics card. 1k+ burned to fix it. minecraft has the same issue though far less damaging. i guess i'll just see what the updates bring, it is a new thing added in so i hope in time any issues will improve. dao no longer updates so i'm screwed there.

    edit: not a memory leak thank god, it is from logging in i was playing offline earlier because of an error. no lag at all. so it is a server internet related issue. so changing skins just got a bit more annoying basicly. which is the only reason i log in at all. easier skin managing.

    is there some offline thing i can change skins with that doesn't require unzipping the jar file?

    posted a message on lag in 1.4.4
    on second thought i think this is a memory leak issue. the progressive lag i get is on par with borderlands on ps3, dragon age ps3\pc, fallout 3, and skyrim more on the ps3 version though.

    great and i was hoping for some relief from this issue. i feel 2 years of troubleshooting dragon age was more then crazy, it still runs decently but not much improvement. now minecraft i can add to the list of memory leak wars.

    i have a partition for my troublemaker games dao, fo3, skyrim. it helps the issue enough to tolerate dealing with said issues, can i move the .minecraft folder to the partition leave a shortcut in it's default location and will it work?

    i have done this with steam, a person on youtube helped out. and to be honest in my war with dao he was the only person on the net that actually helped really at all.

    so to sum up can minecraft run on a partition with minimal headaches? i'd rather not try it without being sure, i have lost to many maps by now and am not risking this one.

    posted a message on lag in 1.4.4
    as the title says. i'm getting some lag in 1.4.4 patch. and i figure it has to do with the internal server thing. now normally i get a stutter here and there. been that way for as long as i remember. but now i'm getting a clear server type of lag.

    where i break a block and it takes a few seconds to break. items on the ground take a few seconds to go in my inventory. not game breaking but a bit annoying. also a minor thing i made a boat and was able to ride it. but once i got out i couldn't break it with any tool, mainly sword and axe. i also have a habit of jumping out of the boat while it is running into a wall, due to the boat breaking into pieces before the latest patches. so i may just have to not jump out while it's moving now.

    my pc is an hp pavilion elite hpe-210y
    phenom 2 945 quad-core processor 3.00 ghz
    8gb of ram ddr3
    1 terabyte harddrive
    win 7 64bit
    graphics card
    ATI Radeon HD 5670 memory 2048 MB
    catalyst Version: 12.8 [i know i need to update it, newest is 12.10, it's a pain to bother with it]

    the whole pc is pretty much stock hardware wise, not over clocked or anything. the only change i have really ever made to the pc itself is the graphics card.

    we have dsl ethernet at 750mbs. but we have a business on the same connection with 8 pcs besides mine. so it's is crap, and i can't do squat about it. and i won't screw with any routers or anything because it will hurt or effect the business, which is my brother's.

    as for mods, not as much as normal

    modloader
    minecraft forge
    optifine hd u d2
    what's my light level [though it doesn't seem to work anymore.] &lt;_&lt;
    rei's minimapv3.2_05
    backpack 1.5.4
    invtweaks 1.4.5-1.4.4

    i use magic launcher 1.0.0 as my mod manager

    i have about 15 texture packs, that are all out of date, so i'm using the default right now.

    It does not work with me, either. It seem the search is broken. I type in Minecraft and it shows not a single result, wich should be different. I tried it with Chrome and Fireox on Win7 64Bit and with Internet Explorer 9 on my Windows Phone Smartphone. So it does not have anything to do with Macs or Apple.


    so a forum issue, well at least my devices are ok, which is good seeing as lately apps are being a pain on my ipod touch. the site seems fine on my desktop pc though, which is why i thought it was an apple thing. but i guess it's more of an annoying glitch. but that's computers for ya, never know when problems arise. and the web is technically run on servers so a computer based thing. i wonder if it had something to do with the recent amazon server outage a few days ago. cause the net has been weird after that, not by much but still.

    I've seen this issue on iOS using Safari... seems to be that what is actually happening is that Safari will show the drop down menu when you click the gear button in the corner of the page, but when you try to click on My Content Safari actually clicks on whatever is underneath the menu instead. This only started happening fairly recently (within the past 3-4 weeks) and did not coincide with me updating iOS, so I think it's something that was changed with how the menus work or something along those lines. I ended up just making a bookmark icon to go straight to the My Content page (although that seems to be broken right now).


    Then it might be a mac thing, as much as i don't like putting down apple nowadays. Or it could be ios itself, ios seems to have issues with a ton of web related stuff, flash video being a big one. But it's odd because i'm not using the native safari, i use maven a 3rd party app, though it could still run through safari, i'm not sure.

    @The_pastmaster: i'm not to familiar with the idevices either to be honest i recently got an ipod touch 4g and my dad got an ipad which i sorta claimed, i'm paying it off now. He got another which my mom took :P my dad has no luck.

    I know enough to run the device and a few other things but i think it is my lack of mac os use, always been a windows user, ios seems more mac-like from what i know from what i read and see. And it's nice to see someone from the spectrum :).

    Anyway at least i know it's just the device not the forum, i'm trying to get around to updating, there are a ton of new features i've been dying for in minecraft, but i have a ton of mods, so if i update without most of them i can kiss my map goodbye, but lately i've been hooked on dragon's dogma, that game is addicting. :P
