What this does, is download and install Minecraft 1.18.1 to your pc, which is required if you want to install shaders for Minecraft 1.18.1.

Once you’ve selected Minecraft 1.18.1, click Play and wait for the game to launch. Once you’ve made it to the main menu of the game, you have successfully installed Minecraft 1.18.1.

The next step is to download 📦 Iris and Sodium Installer. On the download page, click Download Universal JAR Installer.
