    If you’re getting Black screen right after login it means Shader’s version is not Compatible with Your MC’s Version.

      Same here. Is it because of certain optifine settings?

      • xXxBLAZExXx

  • IriathZhul

    Can anyone confirm that this works with Minecraft 1.5? A lot of the pages I’m finding on le Internet say SEUS for 1.5/1.4.7, but every version of GLSL I’ve tried adding has caused black screen. Optifine 1.5 is operating just fine.

  • Derp

  • katiepipes

  • Justin

    I’ve correctly followed the instructions, it didn’t worked.
    I’ve tried to Force Update for a clean minecraft and repeated the same instructions, still didn’t worked at all.
    I’ve tried EVERY possible instructions on how to install it, still nothing.
    ALL methods I did resulted to a BLACK SCREEN

  • Salam Tarzan

    Is Fake, DON’T DOWNLOAD !!! I tryed it !

  • I’m A Random Perzin

    If you guys aren’t sure if you will get blackscreen or not, you should back up jar. You also HAVE to install it right, so it works. Make sure you have right version of Optifine and the mod! ;)

  • CoconutBraxton

    I wrote this because I had to! Yay! :D

  • bob

    lol noob

  • SoraPlays

    Black screen! >:(

  • MC_Pasta

    Is this compatible with modloader?

  • Dumb Fucks

    Well if you fucken need modloader, why the fuck doesnt it say anything?

  • joe

    i like penis <3 any one elts

  • OtakuHalo

    Ok, to everyone here, I know you get a black screen. The reason is, the idiots who posted this keep updating the title to the latest MC version, and yet, they keep the same version of the mod from 1.4.7/earlier. And here’s a note to you people who posted this: STOP UPDATING THE FLIPPIN’ NAME IF IT’S THE SAME MOD FROM 1.2.3! Ok, got that out of my system, now then. Bye!

  • Trevin

    he fucked up with verions and called the 1.4.7 version 1.5.1

  • jacob verona

    Where is download button?

  • DudeNextstore

    i dont trust this website because the title says ’1.5.2′ but the video says ’1.1′ so yeah

  • Fartgarfonckel17

    What version of optifine do i need?

  • MinecraftUniverse

    use Magic Launcher to see the mod status if its says error that mean you can play if it says OK it worked

  • Tman

    the water is super glitchy for me

  • Fartgarfonckel

    DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and what version of optifine dose this use i did everything it says but it does not work!

  • http://www.facebook.com/raihan.fantasy Raihan Mstwntd

    Can It Use With Magic Launcher???

    • Robert Gråwe

      Yes, but make shure to install optifine first, then glsl.
      So that optifine shows above glsl in magic launcher.

  • http://www.facebook.com/raihan.fantasy Raihan Mstwntd

    When I Run Minecraft The Go To The Option Menu There is No Shaders Button (Sorry For My Bad English Because I From Indonesia) :d

    • Robert Gråwe

      Because you installed shaders mod first.
      Make a new minecraft.jar, then drag optifine FIRST, then glsl shaders.
