A third party program to change Minecraft RTX's settings externally, directly in-memory. Get the latest release here.
RenderBender is a third party program that aims to improve Minecraft RTX's look. This is achieved by editing the settings in-memory, meaning that there is little to no risk of breaking the game. If you do manage to break something, everything goes back to normal as soon as you restart the game.
Currently, its features are simple: when you start up the program, it displays the current value of the settings, and lets you edit them. Settings are specified in a JSON file, which you can write yourself, or get from the Minecraft RTX discord server.
There are many more features to come, such as
- Keybinds to toggle presets
- Dimension-specific presets
- Preset layer system
- User-made scripts for custom behaviour (i.e. wet ground during rain)
For more information about upcoming features, and in what order they will be worked on, see the Roadmap section.
The latest version of RenderBender can be found in the
release section. Make sure you download the JSON file that matches your Minecraft version. (Currently, only release 1.18.2 is supported). If you require assistance, the Minecraft RTX Discord server can help you (under the #mc-support channel). Unzip the file, and run RenderBender.exe. When prompted for a JSON file, click the button to locate the previously downloaded JSON. All settings included in the JSON file should appear. You can now change them by entering a new value, toggling the checkbox or using the arrow buttons/keys. Have fun!
These are the planned features for the next few updates. While they are all considered necessary and valuable additions, their order may still change in the future.
- Loading the static memory offset from the settings JSON file (allowing other versions of Minecraft)

More features are to come in the more distant future.

- Speedy (Me) - Helped Sleepi with research and later, turned it into the working desktop application we have today.
- MADLAD - Helped with discovering the settings, finds memory-pointers for every new version (making everything actually work).
- Ngārara Ariki - Also helped with Cheat Engine here and there, Discovered existance of settings along with Sleepi.
