i'm trying shaders for the first time. installed simplicissimus and optifine, installed it, but i can't even select the shaders menu, it's in dark grey and i can't click on it.
cound't find anything about this problem online, so if anyone knows what the problem might be, help would be apreciated.
which mc version number exactly?
If you installed the latest preview version of Optifine, it does not have shader compatibility yet, so the function is disabled. Last stable Optifine which has shader support is OptiFine 1.14.4 HD U F5 for Minecraft 1.14.4.
well that explains it. i'll go with the 1.14 then, thank you!
