  1. Hey EMC,

    I have had several people come to me asking how to install mods, so i though i will make a quick thread for how to install it. Also if anyone needs help, they can also post here.

    Why should I Install Forge/Shaders/Etc?:

    You need Forge as it is the Required Mod Support for several mods that Minecraft uses.

    This is a Text and Screen Tutorial.

    How to Install Minecraft Forge:

    Minecraft 1.8 Tutorial

    Files Needed.

    1) Once you have the file downloaed, You will want to start a New Clean version of Minecraft 1.8 (Can not be any other updated Version).

    2) The Program will install by itself.

    3) To make sure it has Installed, you will want to click "Edit Profile" and then under Versions, click the Forge.

    4) After that, you will want to save and load up the game, and load a world. (If it loads up, Continue to one of the next steps, [If not, Check Support or Comment below])


    How to Install Minecraft Forge Shaders:

    Minecraft 1.8 Tutorial, I will be using the Shaders I have been taking my Screens with, that can be see here, or here.

    Files Needed.

    1) Once you have downloaded Both, you will want to navigate to your Minecraft Folder.

    Navigate to your search Bar and type Run.

    Click on run and type "%AppData%"

    Click Okay and Navigate to your .Minecraft folder

    From there, you will have to look for a folder called "Mods" (If there is not one, Make one).

    Once you are in there, you will want to Place the "Lunatrius Core 1.8" in the folder.

    After You have placed it in there, Start Minecraft and load it.
    Once you have it open and running (Main Menu) close it and move to the Next Step.

    You will want to go back to you .Minecraft and look for the folder

    You will want to go and place your shader in there.
    For a List of Shaders Visit here.


    Once the mod is properly installed, there are a few things you can do to ensure maximum performance.

    -Run the game in a smaller resolution in full-screen
    -Lower your render distance
    -When OptiFine is installed, try toggling "Options > Video Settings > Performance > Smooth FPS:". "ON" gives more responsive input and more steady fps, but likely lower maximum FPS.

    How to Install Minecraft Forge Mods:

    Minecraft 1.8 Tutorial, if you are looking to install Mods. Please Keep in mind to visit here to see if the mod is allowed on EMC.

    When using Forge mods, you have to download the forge version and place the file in your Mod file.
