Recommended Posts

Ok, so I know a lot of people have optifine for 1.8 to run their game smooth for zoom etc.

So here are step by step instructions:

Step 1: 

Go to this link and download it: http://optifine.net/adloadx?f=preview_OptiFine_1.9.0_HD_U_A2_pre.jar (Optifine Official Website)


Step 2:

Now that you have it download it drag it onto your desktop


Step 3a:

Great you have the easy stuff down, now here is were it might get complicated.

You may or may not have a program to run .jar files; If you do just double click and skip to Step


Step 3b:

Ok this is for the people who don't have a program to run .jar files.

First Open up cmd. (Command Prompt)

Step 4b:

Ok so now i'm guessing your in C:\User\(Your User Account)\Desktop>_

So now input:   java -Xmx500m -jar preview_OptiFine_1.9.0_HD_U_A2_pre.jar. (The-Xmx500m is changeable, I used 500mb (Half a GB of ram to make the installation go quicker)


And a new java tab will be opened see Step 5.


Step 5:

So now you should get something like this:


Hit Install, and wait a minute.


*Note: Cmd users will get spammed in their prompt, don't worry it's just installing.

Step 6:

After you get the message: "Optifine has successfully installed" 

Open up your minecraft launcher.minecraftllauncher.PNG.240288c0f1ae4fd8b

It should say Ready to Install/Update Minecraft 1.9-OptiFine_HD_U_A2_pre.

Hit play and it will load optifine!

Enjoy Optifine!
