Are you envious of those wonderful Minecraft screenshots and videos that use Shader packs and wish that you could use one of your own? Then luck is on your side as this shader pack is designed specifically for low-end potato PCs!
SFLP Shaders Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is a shader pack created by username Davaxyr. This pack is created for low-end PCs and is compatible for all kinds of graphics cards including the common Intel HD Graphics. This shader pack is especially optimized for PCs with low specs.
What the SFLP Shaders is About
SFLP Shaders Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2 is all about keeping performance and FPS high while providing the basic shader effects and making vanilla Minecraft more visually appealing.
Minimal system requirements
The shader pack’s requirement is very minimal, but don’t expect that it won’t affect your FPS. SFLP requires at least 1.5GB of RAM and a Dual-Core 1GHZ processor. To get Minecraft playable, you should at least have that requirement to start with.
Graphics Card Compatibility
The shader pack supports all kinds of graphics cards like AMD, Nvidia, and Intel. The pack is compatible with all kinds of graphics cards as long as they support at least GLSL 1.2 and OpenGL 2.0. In addition, the graphics cards you use should be anything from 2012 and above. Any cards below 2010 will not work due to outdated and unsupported functions.
Keep in mind that you should keep your graphics card drivers up to date to avoid errors and performance loss.
3 versions; Lite, Low, and Standard
The shader pack is separated into three different versions: Lite, Low, and Standard. The Lite version requires the minimum system requirements but provides the least graphical enhancements and visual effects. If you’re using a Potato PC but still want to install a shader pack, then the Lite version is what you want. The Standard version provides decent visual effects and enhancements but might eat up some of your FPS. If you have low-mid end PC, want to play with a Shader, and don’t mind a bite or two on the FPS, then this is the one for you. Low version is somewhere between the lines of lite and standard.
