Hey guys in this blog i'm gonna show you how to fix Minecraft Lag completely it worked for me and my friends and im sure it will work for you!
Now first off change your settings to the settings below to eliminate most lag:
FOV: 80
Particles: Minimal
Graphics: Fast
Performance: Max FPS
Render Distance: About 4-8 (Less chunks = less lag)
GUI Scale: Normal
View Bobbing: Off
VSync: Off
Brightness: Does not matter
Mipmap Level: 0

Ok so thats most of the lag now for the rest follow the steps below:
1. Open Task Manager by pressing CTRL, ALT, And DEL at the same time

2. Find javaw.exe right click it and hit Set Affinity

3. Make sure CPU and CPU 0 is checked

4. Right click it again and click Set Priority and click high

5. Restart MC and diamond if this worked for you!

If you have Windows 8 and you cannot find Set Affinity do this
> Open task manager
> Right click java
> Hit go to details
> Now try again!

NOTE: If it doesnt work then your internet needs to be replaced.

Optifine settings coming soon!!!

My Minecraft won't stop lagging with even the newest versions! I've tried all of these tips, and I cannot find the javaw.exe in the Task Manager! Any other lag-killing tips?

okay, so, my Minecraft is really good even with 32 Chunks, I'm currently playing with forge 1.12.2 because I don't really play with modpacks, nor with Optifine, i just prefer it that way since I'm familiar with Forge more, I have 45 mods currently, and they were all perfectly, my Minecraft has only caught up to lagging, well not lagging.I don't know how to explain this but, it freezes over at least 5-10 seconds, and works fine after at least 30 or 40 seconds and it repeats, other than that I really don't know how or what happened, I think it's either the mods I have or I just need to update my Forge, I need some help, if anyone has, or had has this problem.

Did you download it from optifine.net? You don’t run it either it’s a .jar file and you have to have forge from files.minecraftforge.net

Run MC then right click, in task manager, minecraft or java something like that and hit go to details. It'll highlight the one to change priority on.

If you have more than two processors, click all processors. For an example, I have an octacore CPU so I check processors 0 to 7. I would recommend not to set the priority to "real time", or the system will likely neglect other programs, probably including GPU. "High" should be good enough. You might also want to try installing Optifine (easiest way is to download a mod pack that installs Forge). You might also want to check if your PC utilizes all cores (you might have 4, for an example, but your system might utilize only one or two, and save the other two cores as strings).

It should work generally. If you have mods installed, get Optifine. It greatly reduces lag. Remember to set autosave to 3 minutes (the default is 2 seconds) as this causes the "lag spike of death".

Ctrl-Alt-Del opens the security options or the ctrlaltdel menu. Ctrl-shift-esc opens the task manager directly.

Man, I wish I could say the same, but the problem for me probably has more to do with the abyssalcraft mod I installed than anything else. Plus, I'm fighting the ender dragon

VSync reduces lag and in your post it says to be off.


FOV


View Bobbing


GUI Scale


^ causes no affect on lag.


Also Max FPS will use more computer resources and can cause old computers to overheat, I recommend to not set max fps to higher than 60.


Render distance 6-8? that lags a lot. set it to 2-3.

Im sure this would work if i had a better computer, but it did reduce lag, however, it crashed immediately after I went back to the game. Do you know of any other methods I could try?

Nice tutorial! But, you don't want to disable VSync, it helps reduce lag. And Advanced OpenGL should be set to fast. Also a better way to get to task manager on Windows 8 and up is by pressing Windows+X. :-) Over all, this is great!

Droid,
Thanks for the instructions.  I just tested this on 1.8 and the most recent 1.8.8 and my lag was fixed.  I didn't bother with opening task manager; I simply changed my settings in options. :)
