Hey guys in this blog im 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 6-8
GUI Scale: Normal
View Bobbing: Off
VSync: Off
Brightness: Does not matter
Advanced OpenGL: On
Anisotropic Filtering: Off (0)
Mipmap Level: 0
(Being worked on ATM)

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!
I would like to say thanks to lazerpanthers for helping with
those instructions!

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

I cannot find the javaw.exe! I have a mac
Optifine is really useful, got me from 50-60 to 200fps
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.


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.

Great advice! It worked perfectly and now my game is like 100% lagless!
I did this but when I launched minecraft it seems like my sensitivety is really high, but its at only 40... HALP!!!!!!!!!!!
Try changing the FOV
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?
Try changing mipmap settings to 0

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!
Alright, thankyou for the input!

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. :)

herobrine150400, change your Java Arguments in the launcher to "-Xmx512M -Xmn1536M" without the quotation marks.

then it's because of your graphics driver, ram isnt everything, your GPU has to be able to handle the game

If you think you dont have a GPU or don't know what it is, it could be an Intel GPU
sorry, i'm kinda new and rarely open my account, how did you give a diamond?
Up at the top click the diamond
thanks, i already give you diamonds
im pretty sure OpenGL will actually sometimes make it increase, but it depends on your CPU and processer
By internet needing to be replaced, what exactly is your recommendation since I tried all this and it worked at first but then after a few moments starting lagging just the same.

Internet speed does not effect your framerate, your hardware does.
By that i mean by a new router

I gave the 10th diamond! Gratz On Double Digitz!!
i dont know what it is but my minecraft worked comepletely fine and in the past 2 updates i just started lagging a lot. i play on a laptop but like i said it worked fine before please help.
Could just be your Java or you have to many programs/things on your Desktop that is slowing down your computer. Or it could just be all the things Mojang added.
