THAT GOD DAMN MOSQUITO JUST KEEPS COMING BACK

The fact that XP doesn't 'fully' use 4g leads me to think to upgrade to Win7, but just upgrading to Win7 won't help the memory issues in minecraft... or would it?

Upgrading both won't help with your memory issues unless you get (or already have) a 64 bit processor and a 64 bit version of 7. It's not the version of Windows that is the issue, it's the bits - 32 bit simply can't address more than 4GB, and various things get counted against that (like video RAM), so the expected max on any 32 bit version of Windows is about 3.5GB.

Windows 7 really is the best windows to date, so glad I made the investment.

and yeah, 64 bit for life

Well, if you have a 32 bit CPU, you won't be able to use 64 bit Windows 7, so you would still not be able to use 4 gigabytes of RAM were you to then upgrade that.

To actually use more than 4 GB minus the RAM on your video card minus any other RAM on cards in the system (Which usually ends up with a 4 GB system having only 2.5-3.5 GB of RAM usable) you need to have:
A: A 64 bit CPU
B: 64 bit Windows (Vista or 7 would work but you'd obviously buy 7 now)
C: The 4 GB or more of RAM

The best way to avoid the minecraft memory issues is to upgrade to x64 Win7 with Java7. This doesn't always solve the problem since it is minecraft's issue.

Another way is to lower the render viewdistance.

Calm down, man, it's just the guide. That's what developer art is for.

There are only two people who do art for minecraft, notch and jeb. They're both programmers. Junkboy is on permanent scrolls assignment. So he's not overreacting, it's gonna look like poo poo.

Luckily I never use the default textures.

One thing I've done that helped me with the occasional stuttering is to set the performance to "power saver" mode, which as far as I can tell locks the framerate at about 40 fps - it wont try to render more than that. Lowering other graphics settings may also help, but the game looks bad enough as it is.

I have to admit this is vaguely off-topic for the thread, but since the framing-issue is Minecraft, I hope I don't get yelled at for it:

As I mentioned earlier, playing with a high-res pack (which is so purty I can't bring myself to go back) has been causing me a lot of out-of-memory issues. I'm on Windows XP, with 2g of memory (I'm a "upgrade only when I really need to" guy, which is why I haven't upgraded much), so it's not really surprising.

Because Minecraft is the only situation so far I've had issues with, I'm a bit hesitant about spending a lot of cash on a Windows upgrade and memory, so I'd like to pick one: upgrade to more memory, or upgrade Windows?

The fact that XP doesn't 'fully' use 4g leads me to think to upgrade to Win7, but just upgrading to Win7 won't help the memory issues in minecraft... or would it?

Buy a 300.00 desktop with a radeon card in it from best buy, it will be better in literally every way.

Still horrific programmer art, but now the wings look a bit more like wings.

The dragon looks a lot better than I thought it would, but I would agree with Fayez Butts. It almost looks out of place in Minecraft. Too many polygons!

Also, I know that we started off with Zombies and Skeletons, but with all of the Endermen, Silverfish, and Ghasts, I was sort of hoping the Minecraft interpretation of "Dragon" wouldn't be a generic fantasy style Dragon.

So I remember when minecraft updated with pistons and I was like "woohoo, another thing I'll never use".
I always ignored redstone, had shitloads of things, but was constantly turned off by seeing those complicated things they did to have something as simple as an automatic door. Hell, it was the only thing I hadn't done in minecraft after getting sick of it. I was even ready to leave minecraft (before the updates)!


Holy poo poo am I hooked. This thing just breathed a shitload of air to a game that was already gaining momentum with these updates. Now I fear for my academic output.


I also modified the timing of my escalator so now you have to be sprinting to gup it, and you have to jump at the last second or fall into a pool of lava. I almost died 3 times in there.
EDIT: replace "gup" with "go up" but for some reason I like gup more.

By the way, 1.9's terrain generation is fantastic:

It's because of the double doors - "When trying to sleep in a bed at night, a monster may enter through the outside right hinged door and disturb the player. To prevent this, keep the right hinge door open, and you will be able to sleep."

What the gently caress. I'll try this out when I get back, thanks. I might just remove the doors altogether and make a piston thingy instead.

They're "Shadows of Israphel" thing is basically like a super long and elaborate DMed live adventure map built just for them that they record. They also do videos of other games that interests them and they're funny, so that's pretty much it.

In some ways I actually prefer the LPs of adventure maps to the SoI stuff, though the latter's amazing in itself just because of all the ridiculously awesome locations their friends build for them to bumble around in.

Here's all their Minecraft stuff collected together, though they do have videos of lots of other games too. I think they're funny, but apparently they irritate the hell out of some people, so YMMV.
