Mineshot Mod Installer for Minecraft 1.8

Mineshot is basically a revamped version of Notch’s huge screenshot function that was available in Minecraft Beta 1.2 to 1.4, which allowed you to create extremely large high resolution screenshots.
In Mineshot, this is archived either by combining multiple smaller screenshot tiles to one large image or by off-screen rendering the scene directly to the file.

This mod is made by BarracudaATA, all credit to modder. Visit the original mod thread here for all info.

Internet Explorer users:

When downloading the .exe version of the installer, save the installer to a location like desktop, then run it. Do not run it straight from the browser, if you do you might get the “Skydaz Addons has stopped working”.

  • Camera and zoom controls are now smooth on default (hold CTRL to switch to stepped controls)
  • Disabled chunk preloading (incompatible with Minecraft 1.8).


  • Removed profiler event code to fix various crashes and performance issues with other mods.


  • Fixed swapped zoom in/out keys.
  • Increased maximum resolution for tiled rendering to 65,535 x 65,535. (keep in mind that not all image programs can open such large images)
  • Added chunk preloading option.
  • Enabled config menu in the mod list.


  • Added support for memory-mapped files to speed up capturing and reducing memory usage even further.
  • Added support for the framebuffer object introduced in Minecraft 1.7. This enables proper support for pixel shaders and GUI elements and will be used on default when possible.
  • Added full localization support (English and German language files included).
  • Removed ImageIO mode in favor of a simpler, faster and and more robust code.

All installers require Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 to work. Most PC’s already come with it installed.
If you get an error when starting installer then download the framework from here: NET 4.0

1. Download a mod installer for the mod that you would like to install.

Make sure that the mod is for the version of Minecraft you want to use. If the mod is for Minecraft 1.7.10 then all other subsequent mods should all be for the same version of Minecraft. Mixing different versions of Minecraft mods will usually cause conflicts/crashes. Most always the crashes are caused by conflicting mods. Some mods cannot be installed at the same time. The crash log usually tells us what mods are conflicting etc..

2. Run the downloaded installer and click on “Options” tab. Then click “Clear Mods” and “Clear Config”.

This should only be done once per version or if you have a crash that you do not know how to fix! This will remove any old mods and outdated files, this way they do not cause the new mods to crash. This should be done every time you want to switch the version of Minecraft. Say, if Minecraft updates to 1.9 version and new mods come out for that version then you would have to remove the old mods and config files in order to add the new mods.

3. Now go back to the “Install” tab and click “Install Mod”.

This will install the mod and also create the “Profile” where the mod will be installed. If the mod uses the Forge loader then usually the profile will be called “Forge” and so on. The installer shows what profile it is installing the mod to.

4. Play Minecraft. Make sure you use the profile “Forge” to play.

If the profile is not setup then you can follow these instructions on setting up the profile. Make sure to use the profile the mod is installed to, otherwise the mod will not work!

Installing mods is simple using the installers.

Simply download either the .exe or .zip version of the installer from the “Downloads” section. (Both are same, you just have to extract .exe file from zip folder and sometimes zip works without any issues)

After downloading the installer, run it and click “Install Mod”. That’s it!

Your mod is now installed and ready to use. Please refer to the “Installer Instructions” page should you need more information or if you have issues installing the mod.
