YOU MUST HAVE A DECENT COMPUTER!
1.7.2 ONLY. BACKUP ALL YOUR SAVES!


To first begin the installation, its best to create a fresh install, make sure to backup any Saves or texturepacks you want. Once you do a fresh install, run minecraft 1.7.2 once.

Then you need to download Minecraft Forge installer for 1.7.2. (Get version 10.12.0.997). Once downloaded, run it.

Now go to your .minecraft folder. (Use Windows Key+R and type %appdata%). Make a mods folder and a shader packs folder.

Now time to get some Shaders!
I recommend Rudoplays as it is nice and vibrant, SEUS is also nice, but it is dark, Lights do give of a glow that is really nice. Mr.meeps feels more real.


After you download your favorite shader. Drag n drop into the shaderpacks folder.

And you're almost done! Start minecraft again with the Forge profile.

Select your shader.
