Is there a way to increase the Allocated memory? I have problems (in indev, not infdev) getting decent FPS with huge maps, but Normal maps are too.... small, so I wondered if there was a way to increase the memory, and hopefully increase FPS. :tongue.gif:

Increasing allocated memory requires to go into the java CP and add a certain value.

In the Parameters for your product (IF theres more than one, add it in all.) Add this: -xmx512m
Change the 512 to amount of allocated memory you require.
I have done exactly that (going to the Java CP and adding the memory parameters), but my allocated memory still caps at 247 MB. Going into the Processes tab of the Task Manager shows the Java VM actually taking up the memory passed through the parameters, though. Am I missing something here, or is it normal? =)
My symptoms are as follows: the game loads and plays fine, then after a while (~1-2 minutes) the screen freezes for a second everytime I move, and then unfreezes as if nothing happened. It puzzles me that it runs like this, as I've been playing games like Perfect World and Runes of Magic at full graphics on this laptop. Ok, it wasn't all that smooth, but it was still more playable than how MineCraft is acting at the moment. =P In fact, when playing the game on an old desktop computer at college (early dual cores, 1 Gb of Ram, onboard video card), I actually have a better performance! =P
(tl;dr: My game freezes randomly, when it otherwise works really smoothly.)
If it helps, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on a LG R500 laptop. I have 2 Gb of RAM, and a Dual Core T8100 CPU @ 2.10 Ghz. My video card is a GeForce 8600M GS.
EDIT: Just mentioning these in case someone thinks it might be the problem: My drivers and Java are up-to-date.
EDIT 2: Also, I've run a scan and I have no viruses or such. =P
UPDATE: I tried to use Firefox instead of Chrome, and I haven't experienced the issue. Maybe Java and Chrome don't mix all that well?
Reviving old threads ftw I know, but I get the error "Unable to access jarfile C:\Users\Bambihook\Desktop\Minecraft\Minecraft.exe"
Now that is the correct link to where it is stored. I have no idea what's wrong.
