How to Install OptiFine (taken from online)

Optifine allows you to run Minecraft smoother as well as have easier and more reliable access to our resource and texture packs, Optifine somehow allows our resource/texture packs to work more effectively on our servers, we recommend all users run Optifine for the performance benefits and this in mind.

With our server you can use any client that supports Optifine, I would recommend using the latest Optifine version. NOTE: you need to make sure you run the same version of the release as Optifine for it to run, eg 1.19.2 Optifine requires 1.19.2 default client downloaded to work.

The following covers in detail the installation process of OptiFine:

Texture Pack for RPG

It is important that you see the textures and resource packs for our server otherwise you will not get the full experience of the server. To enable this make sure you accept the texture pack when you join the server or set it as shown in the screenshots below. Once this has been done the first time, you will never have to set this up again and the pack will automatically load on join.

Note: if you choose to use this texture pack elsewhere and use this for streaming or videos please can you reference our server IP: Thank you!

To see the textures:


There are various ways to get the texture pack running and each revolves around your set-up server prompt as in below:

You will need Optifine to be able to use this texture pack. Go here to see how to install this.

Optifine Server Resource Pack = Enabled


Upon joining RPG the texture pack will automatically load when you join the server. In some cases, this may stall and cause your game to crash. No fear! If this is the case change your Server Resource Pack = Prompt and move on to the next step.

Optifine Server Resource Pack = Prompt


Upon joining RPG a prompt will come up asking you to install the pack, click proceed. It will either be successful or it will fail. If it is successful it will say successfully installed resource pack. Else please run the command /getrp:

No Optifine Server Resource Pack = Prompt


If you don’t have optifine things may be harder for you, for whatever reason optifine helps with the loading of the pack. In this case, make sure the Server Resource Pack = Prompt is selected as any other version will not work. When the prompt comes up select accept/proceed, it will either fail or succeed. If it fails please run the /getrp command and it should connect.

Can’t connect at all?

Check your Server Resource Pack box that it isn’t set to disable

You are welcome to install the pack manually using the link:

If you are still having issues please contact a staff member on our website or in our discord.
