Ebin Resurrected is a vibrant and performant Minecraft shaderpack.

Ebin began with the goal of being fast, beautiful, configurable, feature-rich, and having a base of well-written code. It was developed by BruceKnowsHow from 2016-2020. jbritain resumed development of the shader in 2024 under the name 'Ebin Resurrected'. This is a fork of Ebin which brings compatibility with modern versions of Minecraft, and also improves upon some aspects of the shader, using more modern features and standards.

  • Nvidia GeForce 400, AMD Radeon HD 5000, Intel HD 3rd gen or later. Any modern device should work fine.

Operating System



  • Ebin Resurrected has been tested on Optifine and Iris and is known to work on versions as far back as 1.17. Older versions are unsupported, however as Legacy Ebin was still in development during this time, it should work for versions as far back as 1.7.
