Intel ARC Issue with Minecraft

I have an Intel ARC A370M Laptop GPU, and I recently wanted to try an older Minecraft modpack for 1.7.10. I loaded into the game, and a graphics issue made it literally unplayable. This Reddit post can explain it much better than I can. You might say, "why not just use the solution provided in the Reddit post and downgrade your graphics drivers?" Because there were no drivers for Intel ARC before 2021, which is what the Reddit user suggested. I tried using the first Intel ARC driver that was available, and the issue persisted. Is there a different fix, or does this just mean I can never play 1.7.10 Minecraft on my laptop again? I have a Windows 11 laptop, and I saw that changing to Linux fixed it for some, but I don't want to switch to a different operation system unless it is absolutely necessary, also given that it isn't a guaranteed solution. Please, many of the best modpacks of Minecraft are in 1.7.10 and I don't want to have to buy a new computer just to fix a graphics bug.

 

I've also tried other old versions of Minecraft:

1.8.9 - works perfectly fine. No bugs or issues I could find.

1.6.4 (and below) - The issue is similar, except instead of the screen turning one a single color, the UI and inventories just get messed up. It's kind of hard to explain.

 

I also heard from some friends that the issue is that Intel removed some features of OpenGL that 1.7.10 and below heavily relied on, so that's why it doesn't work. Is there any chance that those features might be added back so that I don't have to go through a long process to play Minecraft?

 

Thanks for your time.

Hello Intel Support,

 

I also bought an A370m notebook and I have the exact same issue,

I have screenshots, did the SSU scan and the Graphics Commander scan like written above.

I tried Minecraft Version 1.2.3 Vanilla and the Tekkit Classic Modpack (based on MC 1.2.5).

 

Thanks

Yes, to be able to play Minecraft at its best, I think you should have a full-performance Intel device to be able to do so.

What exactly does this mean?
