Since most gamers these days have decent devices the trend for High-Definition texture packs for Minecraft has already grown by multiple folds. Back in the days there were only a handful of devices which could handle high pixel sizes. But, this time it's different. Most devices can take resolutions of 128x and over with ease including #Checkmate Faithful 128x 1.8.9.

HD resource packs for Minecraft are taking over. Even if it is 256x these modern gamers can easily run at least 120 FPS on it with their high-end gaming set-ups. The rise of HD PvP is starting to begin.

What is #Checkmate Faithful 128x 1.8.9


This texture pack was created by the pack maker that goes by the alias of JonCart. This texture pack attempts to make Hybrid textures which are true and faithful to the original concepts of Minecraft but color-swapped to look more vibrant. It also runs on 128x resolution which is eight times higher than the default pixel size of Minecraft.

This texture pack can be used for solo-play and at the same time for some awesome PvP action in bedwars, potpvp and UHC PvP. With regards to it's overall design, it is nicely done. It contains multiple sword designs for each material, not just 1 design with different compositions like most texture packs.


Is Faithful 128x #Checkmate Worth the Download

Yes, it is definitely worth downloading. If you love Faithful texture packs but are bored of how their color schemes are always the same, then this is the perfect texture pack for you. It has great performance despite it running in a higher pixel sizes. At the same time, the color swapped faithful textures look great.

Although it is not part of our top Faithful resource packs list it still has it's own unique vibe to it. To be honest, Faithful 128x - Canvas does look better. Especially if you install BSL shaders together with it.

Just like every other Texture pack that we review, we always recommend that you download Optifine 1.8.9 first before installing this texture pack. It is to ensure that this pack runs perfectly as originally designed. At the same time it optimizes your game to squeeze out extra performance.


  • Great color combinations and immersive textures
  • Well done, and has high-definition resolutions at 128x
  • Even though the color schemes are altered still remains "faithful" to the original concept of Minecraft


  • Might slow down your FPS if you have a slower device
  • As mentioned above, it alters the color scheme. Some players don't think it's very true to the original concepts at all
  • Despite being 128x, some of the blocks do not look like it's HD, however they are only a few though
