While Minecraft is an ever-expansive and fun game to play in its original variant, a lot more can be added to it by installing mods and resource packs. One of the most effective and useful tools (mods) you can install – whether you want to keep the original flavor or add some uniqueness to your game – is the Optifine mod. Optifine is not a resource pack in itself. It does not change any textures in the game. It is, instead, a tool that allows you to adjust Minecraft to increase performance or visuals to your liking. For instance, it provides new settings in the menus that allow you to more freely adjust rendering distance and other factors that might affect how well your computer can run the game. It also allows you to use various resource packs with custom features. If you use HD resource packs and have seen major frame rate drops, see serious lag spikes in your system, or otherwise just need an FPS boost, Optifine HD will provide exactly what you are looking for.
Optifine can be used in both single player games and multiplayer servers. Be warned, though, Optifine HD only works in multiplayer games if the server’s host also has Optifine HD installed on the server. If this is not the case, Optifine will be disabled and you will not be able to use it. Another warning that comes with this is that some of the steps you can take to increase your frame rate will also make Minecraft less visually appealing to look at. You can disable clouds, the sky, stars, fog, and a number of other functions that make the game more visually appealing. All in all, Optifine HD is probably the best way to take more complete control of your Minecraft experience. You can adjust how textured and detailed everything is, from bare bones to top of the line graphics, based on what your personal computer can handle.
OptiFine should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 1.19.4 - 1.19.3 - 1.19.2 - 1.19.1 - 1.19 - 1.18.2 - 1.18.1 - 1.18 - 1.17.1 - 1.17 - 1.16.4 - 1.16.3 - 1.16.2 - 1.16.1 - 1.16 - 1.15.2 - 1.15.1 - 1.15 - 1.14.4 - 1.14.3 - 1.14.2 - 1.14 - 1.13.2 - 1.13.1 - 1.13 - 1.12.2 - 1.12 - 1.11.2 - 1.11 - 1.10.2 - 1.10 - 1.9.4 - 1.9 - 1.8.9 - 1.8.8 - 1.8.1 - 1.8.6 - 1.8
How to install Optifine:
Guide last updated: 2022-07-22
Before we proceed with installing Optifine, you also need to have Java installed on your device in order to be able to run the Optifine installer. Java is available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Solaris. Get Java here.
Quick Java Installation Guide:
Click the image to open it full size in a new tab.
- Download Java from the official website here.
- Run the file you just downloaded and click Install.
NOTE: Optifine will only work with the Java Edition of Minecraft. Optifine does not currently work with Bedrock or any other edition.
And now.. OptiFine:
Please follow each step carefully if you have never installed OptiFine before.
- In the download section (located directly below this guide), you will find a link to the official Optifine website. Click on this link and you should be redirected to the developer’s official website.
- On the optifine website, you will see many different labels. First make sure you find the correct “Minecraft Version Label”. If you’re playing Minecraft 1.18.2, look for the appropriate label, then simply select one of the versions of Optifine under that label (we strongly recommend that you always choose the OptiFine HD Ultra editions. They usually have the most features) and click Download (or Mirror).
- If you clicked the “Download” button (step 2), then most likely you will first be redirected to an sponsor page with a short timer of 5 seconds. Just wait and click “Skip”. If you clicked the “Mirror” button (step 2), you will be redirected directly to the download page.
- Now, once you are on the download page, click “Download” again.
- Right-click on the newly downloaded Optifine installer file (should be in .jar format), select “Open With”, and then click “Java (TM) Platform SE binary”.
- A small installer window will appear, just click “Install”. After a while, the message “OptiFine is successfully installed.” will pop-up.
- Run the Minecraft launcher and click on the small arrow to the left of the green “PLAY” button. You will notice that there is a new version titled 1.19-OptiFine_HD_U_H8 (it may be different in your case depending on which version of Minecraft you are using and which version of optifine you have installed). Select this Minecraft Optifine version and click “PLAY”.
- Done. Now you have a version of Minecraft with Optifine. We hope the guide was useful to you, we tried to describe everything in as much detail as possible with screenshots so that you can understand it better. If you still have problems with the installation, leave your question below in the comments – either the administration or site visitors will definitely help you. But there should be no problems if you carefully read everything and do as it is written in the guide.
- We never modify or edit resource packs in any way. None of the resource packs, shader mods or tools you see on this website are hosted on our servers. We use only official download links provided by official authors. Therefore, they are completely safe and secure.
- Since the links are official and we update them manually - the links may stop working with each new update. We make every effort to update links as quickly as possible and usually we update everything on time and users have no problems, but if suddenly any link stops working - let us know through the comments below.
- Don't forget to leave a comment below and vote for the pack. By doing this, you help the author(s) keep improving the project. If you want to support the author(s), be sure to check the author links just below the download links.
Download OptiFine from Official Website
Curseforge: download starts automatically after a few seconds;
Mediafire: click the big blue button with the text "DOWNLOAD";
Google Drive: in the top right corner you will see a small download icon (down arrow), click it and the download should start;
can anyone please help me, I can never download anything. I’d really just like some help because I really want a good texture pack and I always get lost on the instructions because, like when I tried to learn Adobe Animate, it seems like something wasn’t there. Admin, anyone please help!
Is there going to be an update for 1.20 when it releases?
Optifine is updated regularly, so most likely it will be.
After I click “open with JAVA (TM) Platform SE Binary”, which I did the steps for downloading, a pop up appears that says “there are errors in the following switches” and it doesn’t download. How do I fix this?
I have Mac and am trying to download Optifine, though it keeps telling me that it won’t open because it thinks it is malware. Is there any way to get around this or fix it? thanks.
Check your Mac settings, you can temporarily disable browser restrictions or antivirus if you have it installed.
if you use finder, you can open it. click with 2 fingers and then click open. it’ll ask something which i cant remember off the top of my head but, it’s just confirming you want to open it. then it should open as usual.
So I cant open with Java(TM) Platform SE Binary, what do I do about that
it shows a black screen for a second than it desappears
What if your on bedrock edition?
Nothing, you can’t install optifine on the bedrock version.
On I’m glad it works for bedrock editon
when i click “open with” it opens the window for 1 milisecond?????
How I fixed it:
Step 1: Open Command line (type CMD in search bar)
Step 2: Type “cd” followed by your Minecraft installation location (typically: C:\Program Files (x86)\Minecraft Launcher\runtime\jre-x64\bin)
Example: “cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Minecraft Launcher\runtime\jre-x64\bin”
Step 3: Type “Java -jar ” into the command line, then click and drag the .jar Optifine installer package (downloaded from Optifine.net) into it. It should auto-fill the path to the file in the command line.
Step 4: Hit Enter :)
some i got every step but the last one to work
I got everything but the last step to work.
when it says to open with java(tm) whatever its called it wont let me do that
You have to download the java software (not Minecraft, the programming app), the download is in the yellow box (:
If I wanted to utilize Optifine in curseforge, will that copy over from installing it into the original launcher or is there a separate way to add it to Curseforge?
For Forge, you simply place the Optifine.jar file into your mods folder. There is a YouTuber “The Breakdown” that has some really good guides for installing most things. I recommend checking out his videos.
when i try open it with java, it doesnt show up. how do i fix this?
Where can I find Java(TM) Platform SE binary ?
i just chose what system i was on and downloaded it and then when i tried to open it with java platform se binary it worked
How do you use this its not possible
for REAL though
I don’t have Java (TM) Platform SE binary :(.
Can someone help?
does not work no more
when i download optifine it gets a paint file
How do I use the Java SE Platform, it does not show up as an option for me. I am on windows 10
im stuck on step 5 of the download optifine thing. when i open it with Java(TM) platform SE binary it just opens a black screen for half a second then closes it and it doesnt download anything. ive tried redownloading java, redownloading optifine and restarting my computer so many times but it keeps doing the same thing. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this and stop it from happening?
Im having the exact same problem
Cannot find Minecraft 1.19.2 you must download and start Minecraft 1.19.2
Admin I need advice
Im stuck on step 5 I have Java installed but when I select Java(TM) platform SE binary it opens a window for half a second and immediately closes without opening/installing anything. Any advice?
I have windows 10, with xbox app installed, have installed java edition of minecraft this way (also have bedrock), am able to play both (not at same time of course) but when I go to open the optifine.jar with Java platform se, it says ” Cannot fine Minecraft 1.19.x (2 in my current case this evening), minecraft launcher for java edition is in folder c:\XBOX\MINECRAFT, but there is no 1.19.x folder with any game files. any help is appreciated.
my java won’t open help
I cant get it to stop downloading as a .jar
If you have a mac its supposed to download as a jar! Open it, and it should appear in Java and then prompt you to add to minecraft.
When I click install, it only tells me Minecraft 1.9.2. is not found.
when you go onto the java download website I click one the 1.19.3 preview and it worked for me after downloading it
I cant get past step 5 when I go to open with it only gives me notepad option
It’s downloading as a .jar file, what am I doing wrong?
If you have a Mac its supposed to download as .jar. I thought the same thing at first. As long as you have Java it should work when you go to open it
I am on 1.19.51, is Optifine going to be updated or can i download earlier relases of Minecraft i.e. 1.19.2
Will this ever be included to the bedrock community?
At the moment this is technically impossible, but some alternatives may appear in the future.
When will Optifine be updated for v1.19.3?
I have the same problem! It needs 19.3 update to run. 19.3 previews don’t work, it says the texture pack is too old
I don’t know why it’s like this even though I’ve downloaded optifine but it’s like this. It always says Optifine Required but I’m already using optifine
Hey I’m using Mincraft v1.19.3, and the latest Optifine varsions is for v1.19.2. Can I get away with installing Optifine for version 1.19 and should that work? Or do I have to rollback my Minecraft version? (It doesn’t give me the option for v1.19.2 in the launcher, so I’ll just google how to go back to an older version!)
Hey, I’m stuck on step 6 because when i press the install button it just says, “Cannot find Minecraft 1.19.2” i don’t understand what I’m doing wrong.
First, install minecraft 1.19.2 as usual (via the launcher).
the launcher won’t let me go back to that version, when will optifine be updated?
The original Minecraft launcher allows you to have multiple versions of Minecraft and switch between them at any time.
it says java installation not completed why????
when im at the download i dont see an installer file to open, how do i get the installer?
Hey, so i am stuck between step 5 and 6 because when i try to open it with Java, for literally 0.5 sec shows up a window wich instantly closes itself. Can anybody help?
the little window does not open for me when i try to open optifine with java
i can open the optifine thing
when I right click on “open with” on the optifine file the option to open it with Java SE Binary isn’t there and I asks me to find an app in the microsoft store
Read the “How to install optifine” guide on this page, especially the yellow box.
that didnt help at all still have the same issue
It says there are errors in the following switches—- unable to install java
how do u even install
We have pretty detailed installation instructions on this page. Just follow each step carefully and you shouldn’t have any problems.
why you have to download Java
Can some help me do it in win 10 not 11
I have the Java edition of Minecraft installed and I am opening the Optifine installer file with Java(TM) Platform SE binary but the the small installer window isn’t appearing for me, I am very confused.
this is happening to me as well
i have installed java 13 times and it still doesnt work
bru, I don’t java installed that is why the commands are not going trough
Man why do i have to pay for everything i have to pay for java i just wanna add texture pack cause mincraft aint changing its graphics
i also am not able to instal optifine. wen i tell it to open in java(tm) platform se binary it yust flachesa window on my screen then noting and thers no extra tabo on my minecft lanche ither
I followed the instructions and everything went fine while downloading optifine, but it don’t seem to work when i log into my worlds, even though i chose the optifine “release” in the minecraft launcher and it says (modded) in the bottom left corner of the game start screen. I had the same problem when i tried a year ago too, but then i just gave up. Any logic to why this might be happening?
There is no option to open with Java(TM) Platform SE Binary on Windows 11 computer
Have you installed Java as we instructed you (yellow box in the “How to install” section)? Also, be sure to restart your computer/laptop after successfully installing Java.
yes this is fake my guy\
What do you mean by “fake”? Java? Java is definitely not fake. Minecraft? Minecraft isn’t fake either. Optifine? Optifine is not fake too. All this is used by millions of users. So what exactly are you calling fake?
You need to download Java first, then opifine then any of the mods you need.
Mods don’t work without Java and Optifine.
bro your life is fake
When I hit open with, it takes me to Firefox, asking me to download the file again. The cycle repeats. How do I fix this?
Try right clicking it and select “open with”
when opening the Optifine file with java, it says “there are errors in the following switches”
im having the same problem
Same issue as Bruh. Advice?
The Installer doesnt pop up after i chose to open the file with The Java(TM) thing
I dont know why
when i press ”open with” there is no java se platform binary
Re-download Java from the first yellow box.
need a guide for windows 11 java
Optifine 1.19.2 is now available
I have Minecraft 1.19.21.
It wont let me install Optifine? It keeps saying ” This page isn’t working adfoc.us redirected you too many times. Try clearing your cookies. ” So I clear the cookies and then the same thing happens!
I have had this with only Optifine no other mods or resource packs has this happened but for some reason Optifine dose?
Try using a mirror link next to the main optifine download buttons (STEP 2 image). This might work a little better. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to help as we provide a link to the official optifine download page, so they are fully responsible for the stability of the links. You can try contacting them directly.
Why I cant use mods in this shader? I cant include mods…
What do you mean? Optifine is a tool (mod), not a shader pack. Optifine is required for shader packs and some resource packs to work properly.
I have !.9.2 Minecraft version and optifine has only 1.9.1 what should i do?
Wait for the optifine team to release optifine version 1.19.2.
I downloaded optifine h9 and I tried to install in but it said it couldn’t find minecraft 1.19, I have java edition 1.19
What version of Minecraft are you downloading optifine h9 for? Be sure to download the exact same version of optifine that you have installed minecraft. If you have Minecraft 1.19.1 you need optifine 1.19.1 not 1.19.
i tried to run OptiFine H8 and java opened but then closed immediately and the same thing happened with H9, i have no idea what’s going on, and idk if it has to do with me still running on Windows 10 and this version was made for Windows 11. the install menu for OptiFine shown in step 6 does not show up at all.
Wasnt sure what happened, everything is fine until i click install the optifine, it said couldnt find minecraft 1.19. I got my minecraft with xbox pass, does that has anything to do with it?
You need to check which version of Minecraft you have installed. Optifine only works with Java Edition.
I have minecraft java downloaded, but a Java(tm) SE Binary file isn’t there to open it with?
Please re-read the instructions on this page (how to install section) again, and don’t forget to take a look at the message in the yellow box. Most likely, you missed some steps or misunderstood them.
I followed the instructions step by step and i get the pop up that optifine was installed sucessfully but it doesn’t show up at all in my minecraft launcher..
Restart the Minecraft launcher, after that it should appear.
I open the jar file with Java SE Binary but nothing pops up
I did followed the intructions step by step but it doesn’t show up as a version?
Do you know when optifine will be compatible with 1.19.1?
where do i find the java se thing
Please, read the “how to install” section, especially the yellow box.
On step 5 when I try to open optifine with java it won’t let me. It says something about a code not being right? I don’t know what that means. What do I do?
Do you have java installed? If yes, are you on Windows?
I am on Windows and I installed Java per the instructions above the Optifine instructions
Try a different version of Optifine.
I also have this issue and have tried many different versions of Optifine. The problem persists. What could I do to fix it?
Ignore my previous comment. The jarfix thingy of which everyone is mentioning worked.
Y’all need to make your instructions more clear. I ain’t got the Java bull y’all are talking about and reading other comments they ain’t got it. It doesn’t work for 1.19 as y’all say it does.
This instruction is intended for installing Optifine, not Java. But we update the instructions from time to time. Anyway, in order to run the Optifine installer, you must first download and install Java. Google can help you with this, just type “java download for windows)”. Note – optifine will not work on the bedrock edition.
yall when i drag it inti the resource pack box in game it just doesnt show up?? idk whats happening. its a .jar document and it just doesnt go into my game at all. im so confused
Did you even read the installation instructions on this page?
Reading the instructions and even finding a YouTube video on it attempting to follow what they said. It doesn’t work. The Java thing you are speaking of doesn’t appear for everyone as you might think. How about make it easier to install instead of going through a hundred different steps just to download one thing.
First of all, if you’ve read the instructions and followed some YouTube videos and it didn’t work, the problem might be on your end. For example, optifine won’t work on Bedrock edition, so don’t even try. Java will definitely not appear if you never installed it. You need to download and install it like you did with Minecraft. It’s not hard to google java (should be the first non-sponsored link in Google search results). Our instructions are for installing optifine, not java. But we are not saying that our instructions are perfect, we might update a few things to make the instructions clearer.
Next, what do you mean by “easier”? Optifine is essentially “software”, and like any other software, it needs to be installed. You can’t just download and start playing instantly. Optifine, mods for Minecraft and even Minecraft itself sometimes require java, unless you’re on Bedrock edition. It’s already easy. If you have java installed, you simply download the optifine installer, run it, and click install. That’s all. It couldn’t be easier, optifine is not affiliated with Minecraft to be able to be integrated directly into Minecraft.
And lastly, everything about downloads – we provide links only to official sources, we do not have rights to re-upload any of the files. Some links may be direct, some may not, but this is what the authors have provided us and we must abide by, unless the links are “dangerous”, we do not approve of such links.
Please note that even though it may take us some time to respond, you can always contact us by mail (link to the contact page is at the very bottom of the page) and we will try to help you as much as possible.
Doesn’t implement properly for me. I extracted it as well, which still didn’t implement.
Update: Where do I find Java (TM)?
I fixed it and it works :D
how did u fix it
I now understand that optifine doesn’t work that well on 1.19.x
I still have lag
Is there any way the devs can make it so that OptiFine updates automatically like the main version of minecraft whenever there is a new version available, so we don’t have to manually download it every time is a new version?
ya this need to have the latest release. i just tried to install it and it says needs minecraft 1.18.2 when im running the newest update.this program will need an update. please and thank you
When is this being updated to 1.19?
idk its taking its taking them so long to make
so good for pvp
Optifine doesn’t work. It just says that my Java installation isn’t complete. Save yourself the annoyance >:(
From our side everything works fine. Make sure you have Java installed. Also, optifine only works on the Java version of the Minecraft client and does not work on the bedrock version.
yea but is it on 1.19
step 5 just doesnt work? no option to open with java platform se binary , help :(
I have the same problem, somebody help

Make sure you have downloaded java first before installing optifine
okay so I have minecraft 1.18.2 and Optifine doesn’t have an option for that yet. I tried downloading 1.18.1 and I downloaded java and everything but it says it cannot find my Minecraft download. Can anyone help?
what do i do if “Java (TM) Platform SE Binary” just isn’t a option?
So can someone explain to me why the window immediately closes when i click java platform se binary
Is optifine compatible with 1.18.1 yet? Ive been looking at downloading it but dont want to got through the process for it to be outdated and then have to do it all over again.
I play minecraft edu does optifine work?
most likely not, if it doesn’t work for PE or Bedrock then it wouldn’t work for EDU
its good i guess
I have try it but its doesnt function: error binary encounter or something like this
i tried to download & unpackage it but it doesn’t let me use java, it says open with microsoft explorer or winrar pls help (i have java installed)

You may need to install Java. I had to in order to get that option.
It’s happening to me and Java is my minecraft version. Do I have to do something else?
Help i can install optifine it always says: Java cannot be installed
There are errors in the following switches ….
same thing happened to me, i just googled the error and i just had to download something called jarfix and it fixed all the .jav stuff
Oh my god, thank you so much! Can’t believe all these tutorials and stuff didn’t suggest that sooner.
i still can’t get it to work, even after downloading jarfix :/
Have you opened jarfix yet?
why i cant get optifine i will dowload it for the shader pack
im trying to open it with java but it wont let me pick that option. im on a mac, it only allows me to save the file whih doesnt work
I love shader
I have used optifine for 1 year + (which is not that long tbh im ngl) and i can say it’s 100% worth it to use, especially for low end pcs!
i like the shaders
When i try to open the preview optifine. It comes up with a blank black window which flickers on and off. Anyone knows how to fix it?
Use jarfix it installs fast and it works immediately :]
Mohammed al faqsh
i like the shader
when i download optifine, it says i need to open it with java binary se, but i dont have that option, what can i do to make it work?
how did you fix that???
How did you do it may I ask?
U need to download java first, u can just download it from a tutorial. Then u need to pick open with java.
When clicking on Optifine 1.17, their website is giving me version 1.16.5 instead, so I can’t use any RP made for 1.17 on it. I have emailed the creator.
There is dropdown button “+ Preview versions”, click it.
help i just want download Optifine but all I keep getting is “preview OptiFine 1.17.1.jar” i have tried what the video but i just cant get it to download.
When ever I pull up the launcher, Optifine has no profile, despite playing with nothing else installed but it.
Is there a version of this for bedrock?
No, I don’t think there is, but if there is, It isn’t the original Optifine. Hope this helps!
i dont want to show my name
i cant find the java (TM) Platform SE binary file
I installed it as directed, but hit a brick wall the moment i load up minecraft. Everything was fine til that point. It stops before the game launches and says “Can not update Native Minecraft”. It stops right there, and the game doesnt launch. What could be the issue?
this looks so nice
I downloaded optifine for 1.16.5 and i installed jave and jar fix, when i try to open with the java platform thingy, it shows and eeror.
Is there a particular location the OptiFine installer is supposed to be? I’ve downloaded “preview OptiFine 1.17 HD U G9 pre24”. I tried having it in the download folder, the a folder on the same drive as my MC installation, and inside the Minecraft “Install” folder. I have selected “Open with” and navigated here: …\Curse\Minecraft\Install\runtime\java-runtime-alpha\windows-x64\java-runtime-alpha\bin Then I selected java.exe to open the file with.
It took forever but I finally nabbed a screenshot of the error message that flickers for a millisecond: Error: Could not find or load main class …\Curse\Minecraft\Install\preview_OptiFine_1.17_ HD_U_G9_pre24.jar
What am I doing wrong?
I agree with Joe, I’m able to use 7-zip on everything. I have java, restarted the computer, black box shows for 1 sec and then nothing. Ive seen multiple people with the same problem as me with no replies, please respond on how to continue from here.
I have a problem too and it is the same like the most of them… if i try to open it with java platform SE binary then a black window pops up short and nothing happend afterwards no installer.. nothing and yes i checked my latest java version, i checked my minecraft version and i try it with older versions too but always the same happend and yes i restarted my pc everytime but always the same problem came up so do u have a fix for that or wahts wrong with it ?
I installed Java the way it is supposed to, and everything is fine. Now, when I downloaded Optifine, I clicked “Open with” but Java Platform SE Binary or whatever, didn’t show up. There was an option to look for another program in the computer, but it didn’t show up there neither. Any help? (Note: I could actually install optifine with the installer, but the resource packs I had didn’t work as they should.)
What exactly do you mean “didn’t work as it should”. If optifine is installed correctly, you will see the new profiles in the Minecraft launcher in the version selection dropdown. Select the Optifine profile.
Jave Platform SE binary? it doesnt come up… was i supposed to do something before?
I try to instal optifine but it does not open and just comes up a a black box
Install java first.
Hello i have v1.17 but the Previous Versions for this don’t show me the little arrow next to the play button. what could be wrong?
DEVELOPERS PLEASE, commons sense – EASE of USE!!!, this needs to be a zip file like all other resource packs that we can place in the resource pack folder!, not some convoluted process to make it difficult to install.
Hence this long thread of complaints and confusion from everyone!
Who EVER said it is a resource pack? It is a tool / mod needed for many resource packs. You cannot install a mod or a tool full of various features the way you install a resource pack. Resource packs are EASY TO USE simply because they are a collection of images, sounds, some text files and nothing else, while mods are standalone software that must later be integrated into Minecraft itself.
I have a unique problem (maybe you’ve gotten this before) but when I click open with Java(TM) Platform SE Binary it flashes a black box and quickly closes the black box window, when I click Java Platform SE Binary it displays this EXACT message,
Unable to install Java There are errors in the following switches:
check the commands are valid and try again
I have Minecraft on Lubuntu (Ubuntu light basically). The instructions for installing OptiFine do not work for my setup. Since Minecraft was installed via Snap the OptiFine installer thinks Minecraft isn’t even installed.
Our instructions are for Minecraft: java edition installed on Windows. Other operating systems are not that much suitable for gaming, and the “general” instructions may not work on your side depending on your configuration.
i checked the website, and there’s no complete version for 1.17. Should I just install the pre-release or would it be okay to install the 1.16.5 edition till there’s a 1.17 edition?
On the official page, you can see a drop-down list of preview versions in the “Minecraft 1.17” section. You can try them, they are compatible with version 1.17.
I still dont understand something
I’ve tried downloading java like 5 times now, but I still cant open the file in java for no reason
After downloading, did you install Java and restart your computer?
I did everything it told me to do but I can’t open it, it says “Optifine_1.16.5_HD_U_G8.jar” cannot open because it is from an unidentified developer. can I have some help?
i’m pretty sure you have to system preferences, security and privacy and you should see optifine wasn’t opened because it is from a unidentified developer. do you still want to open it?”
It took surprisingly long to download, but the outcome was fun + awesome!
the optifine version doesnt pop up for me but everything successfully downloaded
when i downloaded it it didnt work when ever i tried to put it in.
What you mean “to put it in”? Read the installation guide on this page..
Can this be downloaded for bedrock windows 10?
No, optifine is for Java only.
idk how install kuda shearders
wait am I supposed to download java? if so then how? and can I do it on Windows 10? (I apologize for the amount of questions)
Idk if you figured it out already, but you just look up the java thing they’re talking about, go to the official java website to download their latest software, and then you’re set to do exactly what this is saying.
I think Optifine is only for Java edition
I dunno How to run it there is no such option JAVA TM PLATFORM SE BINARY i already have java version of minecraft but i can’t find a way to install it…any idea ??????
First you need to download and install java itself.
Ok i have downloaded the optifine but in will only let run with winRAR or paint.net? How do you run it with java?
Download & install java first?

To install optifine (.jar file) you need java.
same for me it does not pop up with minecraft java it just is like “sry you dont really have minecraft you just have completly nothing worth anything to us”
dud this is so cool
Can someone tell me how to download it on mac?
Im also on mac and I don’t know how
Just click on the download link. If that does not work, you have to install java
This latest version of Optifine does not support this shader, this is why your game is crashing. The shader needs to be updated to G7.
it always crashes my game
that sucks, i cant even install it :/
me also I have no chance of getting the texture pack:(
you have a bad pc/laptop
So do you.
i can download the file and i have java but when i want to open the file in java it opens and auto closes
same over here
I got the the point of installing java to it, but it give me the message
“Unable to install Java
There are errors in the following switches:
Check that commands are valid and try again.” and I have no clue what to do with that, or how to fix it.
I am having the same problem.
same and i cant seem to find how to fix this.
does it work with mac?
yes it does
I’m on iMac
is this available for mac or is it PC only?
It works for both.
It doesnt work for mac because it says the file type isnt supported
I love optifine
I have Java edition, but when I try to download this it doesn’t work. When I try to open in it makes me open it in the microsoft store, and instead of opening the actual thing, it just opens a page with a search for the word “jar”. I do not understand what I am doing wrong.
You need to install Java.
I have the same problem but then if I try to open optimise with Minecraft java (I already have it) it physically won’t show up and when I type it in it’s just says “catastrophic error” :(
Does this work for PE?
Having some trouble– I try to open Optifine with Java and it opens a window just to immediately close it. It’s not there when I open minecraft. Any solutions? I am doing my Open With from the java application within the minecraft folder
Thanks for the mod. You could have added that a noob NEEDS JAVA or something like that. You didn’t even include that in the description (you should).
what do i do if it says ”innstallation has been modified and might not support the latest player safety features.”
When I go on any server there is no changes.
I dont see a arrow next to the play button..
what do we open the file with?
If you have problems downloading optifine i had the same problems aswell make sure to dowload java_platform just type in java minecraft itll come up. after you set up the program simply just redownload optifine and say “open with” and java should pop up when you press java it will automatically insall optifine into the game and when you open the launcher it should be there! i hope this helps you!
how do you find it when i type java minecraft it just says how to get minecraft java edition
How come Charged Creepers look weird with the effect around them?
