Step-By-Step Guide On How To Add Optifine To A Technic Modpack

To add Optifine to a technic mod pack, you must first know the Minecraft version you are running.

Launch your tekxit page; the mod pack displays the Minecraft version that you are running. If not, launch the game to get to the main menu. 

You should see the Minecraft version you are running at the top left-hand corner of your screen during the loading process. Otherwise, when the loading process is complete and you eventually reach the main menu, the version is always displayed on the dark corner on your bottom left-hand side.

After knowing the Minecraft version, close the game and get back to the technic launcher.
