    It happens sometimes in multiplayer for me. Not so much in single player, especially after I increased the amount of RAM assigned to the JRE.

    Open up the Java Control Panel > Click the Java tab > Click the View button, and then enter the following in the Runtime Perimeters column:
    -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M

    Adjust "1024" to how much RAM you want to give it in megabytes. Minecraft has about 500 MB assigned to it by default.

    I haven't done that, but i did set it to above normal priority. Its got a gig allocated to it, isn't that enough? and yeah, i did update my video card drivers.

    I have 2 friends that both have more than capable computer to run minecraft, but both suffer for different reasons.

    1. This one starts out chugging along just fine but then starts steadily losing frames as he plays until he's down to about 5 FPS. Any ideas?

    2. Suffers issues constantly. Can never get it to run above 15-20 fps.

    Ideas?

    I'm aware this isn't much to go on but I wondered if anyone had similar issues.

    Mine's pretty much the exact same. downloaded 1.8.1, even. I've always been able to play 1.7 with 70 FPS or more. This baffles me. super laggy, then, BAM, computer freezes up. Help me Notch!!!

    You guys must be doing it wrong. I just updated and still get a solid 60fps with only 500mb allocated memory on my laptop.

    Anyone mind if I join their server? I've been playing SP for a little bit but it seems like no achievement since no one else is there haha.

    I had a server to join a while back but forgot the IP.

    nope, not only are mods available to adjust the maximum height, but mojang is making it even easier to make mods that do it.

    and with the right mod again, you can have diagonal or even rounded blocks.

    Get to it, just drop the viewing distance a bit, take off advanced opengl, use fast graphics instead of fancy, turn off smooth lighting, and set performance to max FPS. After that, allocate more ram to run for minecraft. If you didn't know when you press f3 to check the fps, in the right corner it tells you the amount of allocated ram it is using. I use about 500mb and I get a solid 60fps.

    You can make it work. Now get to buliding.

    Why create a thread for every update when there is already a related thread, whose purpose is for discussion of all things Minecraft ;)

    I've reset my clan's server at 1.8, keeping it pure Vanilla (until we have bukkit update available, then admin tools will be put on and that is it) with a new map. We've been building a fishing village. I am having a lot of fun, it is the first time I've played survival in a while rather than creative
