I've installed the GLSL Shaders profile for Minecraft 1.8 without using Forge, and it works fine. However, since now I'm not using OptiFine, I'm getting a rather large decrease in FPS, which is disappointing.

Is it possible to install OptiFine and GLSL shaders at the same time?


As of OptiFine 1.8.8 HD U F2 (changelog) shader support is integrated, that means, you no longer need to install Forge and GLSL Shaders mod to have shaders in-game.

The shader options are the same as they used to be, same UI and same capabilities, - shaders work exactly like they would in GLSL Shaders mod.
