If this would better be suited in the Art Dpt. then I have no qualms with it being moved.

Okay so I have Forge, the Shaders mod and various Shader packs, but when I load them it simply says' Shaders initialized' but nothing actually changes? I have the most recent Forge and shadersmod editions and I'm running Minecraft with the Forge profile. I've tried running multiple different shaderpacks and all of them have the same result, so I don't think it's the pack.

Anyone have any idea please?

Some light versions of shader packs don't seem to actually do anything. You might try a more intensive pack. Either way, avoid 1.7.10 if you possibly can. It has severe performance issues. Use the 1.7.5 version.

FYI, you don't need the forge launcher for shaders, the default works fine.

The 1.7.5 version of what sorry? Forge or the shaders mod?

I've tried running it with and without Forge and still no avail. It just says 'Shaders initialized' but does nothing else.

Well I've tried running it on my profile and the OptiFine profile to run it in the 1.7.5 shadersmod and the 1.7.5 OptiFine HD shadersmod without forge but the same thing still happens every time.

'Shaders initialized' and 0 shaders.

I'm using the ulta packs rather than the lite ones so that makes no difference.

I fixed the issue by basically going through the entire process once more, slowly and systematically.
