    Can you join any other servers? Have you tried deleting your .minecraft folder? Did any software/drivers get updated before you started having the issue?

    If a decent number of people were using it frequently, we could agree on some rules and get some moderators to help enforce them.

    You could use only the messaging part or only the voice chat part or you could use both, and there are even text-to-speech features (which I'm yet to test out). There's also direct messaging and you can see the messages you missed while you were offline. Discord takes all the best parts of Skype, TeamSpeak, and IRC and puts them together, that's why I think it would be great for the Minecraft community It actually has already been used in Technic.

    Accurately predicting when crops would be fully grown would be impossible without modifying the way the growth mechanic works works because growth ticks are randomized (this is why crops don't all finish growing at the exact same time). A sound when crops finish growing is easier to do but it would be impractical for large farms.

    If this is your first build and you want your computer to be relatively quiet, don't bother overclocking. -Woody- recommended what seems like a pretty solid build, but if you want the best performance possible out of your computer I recommend getting an SSD for installing your operating system and programs on as opposed to using a conventional hard drive (you could still use a large hard disk drive for storing your recordings and personal files). I've had one for about 6 months now and I'll never go back. They're silent, cooler, draw less power, and have faster speeds than you could ever get with a hard disk drive. Good luck!

    For scanning, I'd go with Malwarebytes. I don't personally use any realtime antivirus software because it's such a big performance hit and I haven't gotten a virus in years, but I've used AVG and BitDefender in the past and both work well.

    CodingBucketshow you guys are just making false statements i will be doing RAM PREVIEW it uses ram or RAM RENDER it uses ram also my brother is the the janitor not the coffee guy why wont you guys keep saying that like Searchndstroy said i might be using 16 gb ram for a server yes i will

    http://www.micron.com/products/dram/ddr3-to-ddr4
    I can OC DDR3 memory to 3200 MHz with my motherboard, so really the only difference between DDR3 and DDR4 is the voltage, price, and stability... none of which you seem to be concerned with. Yes, RAM preview in the questionably legal copy of your video editing program renders frames into memory, but your CPU is many times more important in the performance you're going to get. Do your homework before being nasty to people for trying to make you see reason.

    I agree with Seghas here. The fact is, Minecraft really isn't a heavy game and the reason people believe they need amazing hardware to play it is beyond me. And to "CPU is very slow at 2.5": I ask you why, if that was true, would any self-respecting datacenter use these? Computer performance is about balance, not one particular specification of one particular component.

    Swimmer1929
    ...

    You got 50 to 80 FPS with something even cheaper than that $20 CPU? I can't even get 40 with a i3-2330M . Yeah....

    As for the last part, that really wasn't necessary.

    You have to take into account what else is running on your computer and taking up resources, as well as hardware bottlenecks. This system was relatively well-balanced and very little was running other than Minecraft, so yes, I was able to get decent FPS most of the time. You also have to understand that at this point, that processor has been discontinued for around 5 years and so they aren't in high demand. The computer was around $800 at the time I got it.
    I'm not sure why you think me providing proof that I know what I'm talking about is unnecessary. You haven't given any indication that you can say the same, so I'd appreciate it if you would stop derailing the topic and accusing me of giving bad information.

    Swimmer1929You're partly right and partly wrong. Ever since 1.0 came out Minecraft has been depending on the GPU more and more and now the GPU is used even more than the CPU. Cheap integrated graphics will almost always not run Minecraft "fine" (unless your idea of fine is 30 FPS max). Also, you're making it seem like the number of cores and clock speed are the only factors that determine the power of a CPU, which is completely wrong. Just because your processor's clock speed is at 2 GHz and has 2 cores doesn't mean it can run Minecraft well....

    With your logic, I could get an Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-hh80557pj0534mg) for $20 new and it would run Minecraft well. It has 2 cores and has a clock speed of 2.33 GHz, so it'll do fine, right? Wrong.

    If you choose to enable the more graphics-intensive features, it will be more graphics-intensive. With v-sync, Fancy graphics, Minimum smooth lighting and a render distance of 8, my GPU (Radeon HD 7870) ranges from ~5-25% at 300MHz, seldom spiking over 30%. My processor (i7 4770 @ 3.4GHz) tends to stay around 7%.

    In most situations, they are the primary specs determining the capability of a processor. If we're talking about a base Windows install with only Java running, they are the overwhelming factors we're concerned with in terms of CPU performance. According to Mojang, the A10-5750M meets Minecraft's recommended requirements for clock speed, cores, and cache.

    That's actually a better processor than I had in my previous computer, and it ran Minecraft at around 50 to 80 FPS. My GPU was many times less powerful as well.

    Please don't think I'm pulling this out of my ass; I'm CompTIA Strata, IC3, and TestOut PC Pro certified, a Microsoft certified professional, and I currently work as an IT technician. Just trying to help out.

    Minecraft is not a graphics-heavy game, even cheap integrated graphics should play it fine. The main problem is CPU frequency, which tends to be low in laptops to save battery. In my experience, anything with at least 2 cores that runs at at least 2 GHz should give decent performance, so the A10-5750M is more than suitable. You'll likely experience an FPS drop while recording, but with 4 CPU cores it won't be too bad.

    RAM is not a huge consideration as Minecraft can run perfectly fine with a 512MB heap. Some people assume that giving Minecraft a massive heap (2-4 GB) will improve performance but the fact is this often leads to disk thrashing (data being moved out of physical memory due to a lack of capacity) and higher CPU usage (due to larger GC pauses), reducing overall performance and shortening your computer's life.

    You will experience some performance bottlenecks with a 5400 RPM hard drive (Minecraft and resource packs taking a while to load, computer starting up slow, recording choking out other program's disk access etc.) but it shouldn't affect your FPS. Hope I was able to help

    As a graphic designer myself I'd say that both look decent. Which one you use should come down to the feel of the series. The first one looks sleek and cinematic, while the second one looks more fun and comedic. From a thumbnail standpoint however, the second one is more eye-catching.

    creeperinmyhouseGuys im not saying that it is impossible to type in the 100's. I know that there are quite a few people in the world who can type that fast. I find it very comical how everyone on here supposedly did better than 90% of anyone else who took the test, you guys realize that statistically that makes no sense right.


    Statistics don't account for the fact that most Minecraft players have good hand-eye coordination, type frequently, and are touch-typing (not looking at the keyboard).
