Can you make a shader that turns the world black and white? not 8bit or anything, just everything is in black n white ya know?

Can you make a opposite one? Like instead of 8x8 make it 128x128? If you know what i mean...
it's there on the pack, just turn off the 8-bit shader and it'll work
very unique, I like it
Wow it looks like Minecraft was made in 1990 like minecraft 3d
create 12 bit version please
add tint shader and this is probably extremely weird

When I tried it in my iPad, it literally destroyed my Minecraft
This is honestly really impressive!

I might have to use this online at some point.
This shader actually works for Windows 10, but great work by the way!

Dude, this is awesome, I even tested it out with custom entities and it worked! You should make a monochromatic texture next! I would love that, and I love this, the horror maps I could make!
Well, it's a shader. Of course it works on custom entities.

Looks like Minecraft 3D Shareware
