Thread: Optimizing Minecraft

    Question Optimizing Minecraft

    I am relatively experienced with OpenSuSE, but I have never tried to play any games on it.
    On Windows, Minecraft runs at 60~70 FPS on Far, Fancy, Smooth Lighting, and Advanced OpenGL. But on OpenSuSE, I have to run Tiny, Max FPS, no Smooth Lighting, and Fast to get 20~25 FPS.
    Unfortunately there is nothing in the SuSE wiki or the Minecraft wiki about this, either.
    (Also, I've checked using Fedora. 80~100 FPS.)

    I have an Ivy Bridge i7-3770, nVIDIA GeForce GT 620, and 8 GB of RAM.

    Is there some kind of java trick/package that at least makes the FPS to 60?
    Would using the proprietary drivers instead of Nouveau make it any faster? (On Arch Linux, this helped a little.)

    There is another post about this. However, it focuses on starting minecraft, not optimizing it.

    Proprietary driver are faster for 3d also have more special effects built in. If you play games the NVIDIA driver is a must.

    Thanks, that boosted my FPS to 560~700, 2772 when looking in to the void!
