Introduction: How to Install OptiFine Mods 1.17.1 Along With Forge?

About: I'm a creator of mods, and editor of some websites, I love posting tutorials on minecraft, I'm 25 :)

How to install Optifine in Minecraft, if you got here I'm sure you asked that. To install Optifine is really easy but many people still don't know. See also how to install Shaders to enjoy the best that Optifine can give you.

Minecraft is one of the most popular games in the world and there are so many Minecraft maniacs who play Minecraft every time because it is really fun. However, not all of the Minecraft lovers can play it comfortably because they have some lag issues during the gameplay. This problem is really annoying and makes them angry. Actually, it is because of their computer specification that is not compatible with the latest version of Minecraft. If you also belong to those people who do not feel satisfied when playing Minecraft, you do not need to worry because you can still make your Minecraft gameplay performance run well by using OptiFine Mods. If you already know about OptiFine but you have no idea to install it, then you can follow some tips below.

Step 1: Downloading and Installing the Forge API 1.16.5

Firstly, you must start with installing Forge API. If you want to use OptiFine along with Minecraft Forge, then you have to install the Forge first before you install OptiFine. Here, the OptiFine must be set as the last mod that you will install. You can download Minecraft Forge and install it.

Step 2: Configuring the Launcher

Secondly, you can continue to run the Minecraft Launcher in order to install OptiFine and then you load the forge first. Then, you can select “Forge” from the Profile Menu and click Play. The Minecraft will be running.

Step 3: Testing the Forge API

Thirdly, make sure that the Forge loads correctly, then close the Minecraft. If you want to see whether the Forge is loading or not, you can see it on the bottom left of the Minecraft menu. There, you will see “Minecraft Forge XX.XX.XX”. Just close your Minecraft app if the Forge is already loaded correctly.

Step 4: Downloading the Optifine 1.17.1

Fourthly, Open Minecraft directory in the computer, depending on your computer Operating system. Next, you can download the OptiFine HD files according to your Minecraft version. If you always upgrade your Minecraft, then just choose the top list in the download list.

Step 5: Copying the Optifine

Fifthly, you can copy the JAR file of the OptiFine to the Mods directory. You can find it in the Minecraft directory in the previous step. Just drag the OptiFine JAR and drop into the mods directory. If you still have any questions, see this tutorial on how to install Minecraft Mods with the forge.

Step 6: Loading Forge Profile With Optifine

Sixthly, now you can run the Minecraft app again and load the Forge profile. Automatically, this will load Optifine Mods along with the Forge. You can see the active OptiFine in the bottom left the side of the Minecraft main menu.

Step 7: Adjustments

Seventhly, you just need to adjust the OptiFine setting. The advanced OptiFine setting can be accessed by opening Options and choose Video Setting. Well, now you can add and configure Shaders setting according to your wishes, if you have difficulty configuring, you can access this tutorial here.

Step 8: Finishing

In summary, those are several tips on how to install OptiFine mods along with Forge. If you have already installed on your computer, then you can play your Minecraft comfortably on your old and low specs computer because you can disable several effects that may consume so much RAM memory. By reducing some effects and mods, then you can increase the Minecraft gameplay performance.

When I put the OptiFine file in the mods folder, and I start Minecraft using the Forge profile, I get an error saying that OptiFine isn't supported. Because of this, it doesn't work. Does someone know how to solve this?

I've a solution. You must have installed the same Version of Forge like Optifine and just put the .jar file from Optifine (the downloaded file) in the Mods folder. I know your question is 2 years ago, but maybe you still need it :)

I've used the newest version of Optifine and Forge. Both were 1.16.5. I haven't tried it with 1.17

Do not download Optifine from the link on this page, it will not do anything. Google search Optifine and click the first link, it will take you to the official page with the .jar file that you can place in the mods directory.
