Step 1: Resource Packs

Turn them off. The default look looks fine and runs faster.

Step 2: Sound

Sound can be shut off. It's a lot easier for your computer to render the video faster if it doesn't have to render audio as well.

Step 3: Video

Graphics set at fast, not fancy

Render distance: The lower, the better

Smooth Lighting off

3D Anaglyph off

View bobbing off

Clouds off

Lower max framerate (I like 30)

Step 4: Play

Now your client should run faster. Enjoy!

    diddly darn i'm late.. but if you're reading this, the comments below saying rendering audio is non-existent, that is either because they are from an older version of Minecraft, or they are on a different edition, via bedrock, xbox, ps, windows edition, but for Java, for me atleast, when i lowered all of the volume and music settings, to a very low setting, I clicked back to game, and it was like lag didn't even exist.

    I'll be honest with you. I am not a hardcore gamer and I actually never heard of that before. Thank you!

    Oh, optifine is a mod to make minecraft run way smoother and adds more settings to disable for faster gameplay and barely any lag.
    Hope I Helped! :)
    P.S You'll need to install Minecraft Forge

    Why did you post this?

    There is no such thing as rendering audio, the game barely takes any time "rendering" audio, turn it back on, it has no performance loss.

    Why would you limit your framerate to 30? That just makes it slower, look up your screen's refresh rate and set it to that.

    Lower max frame rate? You do know that slows your game down. Set it to 60 to get it smooth and to reduce screen tearing.

    You do realize that making the game attempt to cap your framerate at 30 slows the client down, right? Perhaps smoother, if your computer can't run a consistent number above 30, but NOT faster. If higher framerate is not "faster", then can you describe your definition of faster? You should always run the framerate slider at infinite if you want maximum performance. Also, running the game fullscreen would MASSIVELY help out the majority of computers. Running it in windowed not only wastes resources, but is even distracting. A quick push of F11 will change from fullscreen to windowed. By no means is this meant to be rude, just trying to assist, as this instructable could certainly be helpful, but it won't be if it contains false information.

    I have always experienced the client running faster with the lower frame rate.

    I did not mention full screen at all in this Instructable. It just says off in the image because I didn't bother with full screen to take those screenshots.

    Once again, can you elaborate on what "faster" means in this case if not a higher framerate?

    I didn't say it was mentioned, I was just adding that so it would be out there.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply! :P

    I do not mean a higher frame rate. I mean that you won't get dropped frames, crashes, and freezes (or not as many). These settings have proven to myself and friends that they make the client run better and it seems faster, not with frame rate, but no dropped frames or having Steve move incredebly slow (which I had to deal with on an old computer I had).
