      Description

      Moderator note
      • Navigate to .minecraft/
      • Open options.txt with an editor
      • Change the line renderDistance:XX to something like renderDistance:12
      • Save the file

      Downgrading is not, was never and will never be officially supported. If you are using Snapshots, use them in a different folder like you are told to when activating Snapshots. Otherwise, issues like this will occur.

      I tried to modify my settings to what i have set them to through Minecraft directory then i put my chunks to 20 chunks instead of 16 it worked in 13w43a but now it doesn't.
