    I know it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how to install OptiFine, but for some reason, I still can't seem to install it. I want to be able to use OptiFine without changing my Launcher or my game's installation directory.

    OptiFine Version: OptiFine_1.8.8_HD_U_H6
    Game version: 1.8.8
    Launcher: Extreme Launcher 2.3.0.16
    Java version: 8 (update 73)
    Log:
    java.lang.ClassCastException: optifine.json.JSONArray cannot be cast to optifine.json.JSONObject

    I've tried to Google it, but nothing has helped so far... So, can anyone try to help me out here, please? I'm playing Minecraft on a Potato and I really, really would love to get a FPS boost.

    Thanks for reading! :)

    Update:
    I feel like its because of my launcher.. I'll take a look into it. Really didn't want to change it since the other launchers I've tried so far are slow and take forever to start (and load the game).

    1: Use TLauncher or TeamExtreme.
    2: If u rlly want good frames and dont give a fuk about quality, Use a 1x1 pack.
    3: Download other versions of OptiFine.
    4: To open your minecraft directory easily, Open it from resourcepacks in-game.
    5: Delete your .minecraft and re-install it again. (Copy any important data, Saves, RPs, Etc,..)
    6: Install mods like the "BetterFps" mod and the "fpsplus" mod with optifine and you're good to go.

    Just buy a better of its more efficient than wasting your time trying to game on a old device. Also for opticians their is an autoinstaller that makes a new profile all you have to do is literally click buttons and switch profiles.

    Oh hey, why didn't I think of that? Let me just bring out my wallet and... Oh wait, never mind. It's empty. :p

    I'm saving up to get something great. I don't want to settle with "good" and then regret that decision for 5 more years. Its hard to get a job that pays well when you're already having such a hard time trying to balance your "student life" and your "free time" (i.e. time for other things) in general, sadly.

    And about installing OptiFine, like I said, installing it shouldn't be a problem, but for some reason, it is for me. Guess it's just my terrible luck.

    Thanks for taking your time in reading and replying to this thread, though. :)

    TeamExtreme Offers 0 Additions over ely.by or mineshafter, I still think that TLauncher and Mineshafter are both better than TeamExtreme...

    Thanks Mike and xLsG!

    I'll try TeamExtreme, TLauncher and Mineshafter. I hope that one of them will suit my needs.
    Hate TerraminingMC Launcher- it takes forever to start and load my game, for some reason! :p
