Hi there everyone.

To keep this to the point, I'm trying to play the game "Minecraft," and it's HORRIBLY slow. It runs at 2 FPS most of the time...

See, my biggest issue is that I don't understand the problem, because my laptop is a little over a year old, is a Pentium 4 Dual core 2GHz, with 3GB ram, and easily enough physical memory. In my laptop, I have a "Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family" graphic's card, and I really don't know much about it. It may be causing me the problems, thought it might not as well.

The game is primarily run in Java, utilizing OpenGL as it's main 3D technology, and a Java game like this really shouldn't be causing me problems on a computer of this caliber. It's midgrade, and it's essentially new, so what could be the problem...

Please, give me any information that you can, because I can't stand how slow this runs.

Thank you.

Found on the official support forums: http://www.minecraft...hp?f=17&t=26219

untested on our part. but it seems that the users are reporting some degree of success. However, I don't believe you will have a huge degree of improvement. Your video card is not for gaming. So I don't know how much improvement you will see.

While I know it makes it hard to play have you tried playing with a tiny draw distance and removing "fancy" graphics?

Well, I've definitely tried this, and although it removes some of the frame-rate issues, it definitely destroys the beauty of the game. I also still lag, even on the tiny rendering distance... It's a horrible thing, really, but I'm probably just going to have to suck it up and get a new computer at some point :/

Thanks for the help.
