Minecraft is one of the most popular games now. This is especially true for children and teenagers, as a good percentage of the player base is under the age of 18.
While Minecraft is available on various platforms, the most popular place to play Minecraft is still on PC. We know that not everyone can afford a high-end gaming PC. While Minecraft can run on almost anything, some will inevitably run into performance issues.
The difference between running a game and being able to play it can make a huge difference in your overall gaming experience. For gamers with low-spec PCs and laptops, finding that a little extra performance can positively affect gameplay.
In today’s blog, we are going to share some tips and tricks to make your Minecraft game run a little better. Our overall goal will be to increase FPS and improve your Minecraft experience.
1. Lighten the Load
Unless you’re running a good computer, the first thing you should do to improve Minecraft performance is to close any applications you’re not actually using while playing, e.g.
While you can leave your music app running in the background, there’s no reason to leave the word processor and web browser open and sucking up resources. Also, if you are playing on a laptop, you should always keep the laptop plugged into the wall while playing Minecraft.
Laptops typically reduce GPU and CPU performance on the battery to save energy and give you more time between recharges. This is great when you’re completing a book report, but not so much when you’re gaming.
2. Close Out Hardware-Demanding Tasks
While there are several in-game tricks that make for a smoother experience, there are a number of ways in which Minecraft’s framerate can be bumped up by tweaking a few PC settings as well.
One of the most effective is simply to close other programs running at the same time, especially those more hardware-intensive ones.
Pull up Task Manager to get an idea of what programs are running, and clear out any non-essential software that’s using up large chunks of memory. More RAM can now be allocated to Minecraft.
3. Install Shader And Resource Packs
Just as one can get bored with the repetitive gameplay of their favorite game, one can get tired of the same old designs in the game.
Although Minecraft designers change designs from time to time, some people are often looking for more changes. If you are that type of gamer, you may want to consider installing shaders and resource packs.
Shaders and resource packs are similar to mods in that they change some elements in the game, but instead of adding new materials, shaders and resource packs change the design or texture of objects within the game. Therefore, they can serve as excellent eye candy for those who play Minecraft for the sake of visuals.
4. Update Your GPU Drivers
When you’re only using the computer for web browsing, paying bills, and other light tasks, it hardly matters that you’ve updated the GPU drivers because any performance increases and improvements will go unnoticed.
will not go. When it comes to games like Minecraft where you can really make the computer sweat, though, all those little updates in the new driver package can really help.
Check your GPU’s make and model number, and then visit the manufacturer’s website to see if updated drivers are available.
5. Close background programs
An effective way to increase your frames per second is to close any background programs or apps on your computer.
For example: You can have Google Chrome, Spotify, Firefox, or even other games open when you’re playing Minecraft. These other programs can, at times, significantly damage your frames because they also require resources from your computer.
For Minecraft to run at the fastest speed possible, you want your computer to be completely focused on the game, and not devote any power to anything else.
