Optifine compatibility
« on: November 17, 2012, 11:33:46 PM »
(I am surprised that this wasn't in "Excessively asked questions")

Optifine releases usually indicate a specific version of forge; it's rarely the official release version.

Right now, release/recommended is 372; optifine 144 D2 calls for 374.

What issues are known in 374 that were not present in 372 (i.e, what bugs since release are now known and fixed later)? Is Optifine asking for anything 374 or later, or is it only 374, exactly? (Mystcraft was in that situation for a while, for example)

The new features in 374 have yet to be used by any mods (I think), so bugs in the new code won't manifest themselves.
Also, the "official release" version of Forge has bugs on its own. Forge 372 (and earlier) has a bug that was fixed in 375, and another that was fixed in 379, and another fixed in 380.

As for which version Optifine requires, that's a question for sp614x. I, personally, haven't had any problems installing Optfine on versions of Forge that it wasn't specifically intended for, but maybe I've just gotten lucky.
There's an EAQ for a reason. Read it!
