This is something really simple that I have done. I have taken the minecraft default launcher add changed it to use more ram on default. With this it is very simple and none of that .bat stuff. I found doing that is really complicated for some people (not all) and it didn't work for some (such as myself).

You can download the .zip file down below.

Click to download the .zip file of all the launchers (1gb-8gb).
(Virus scan here) I will work on getting another one or two when i find the time.
(Another scan here)

This contains all of the launchers I have made so far. If you need more ram just post and I'll add. It's really not hard to do and I am not gonna lie, I didn't put much effort in it at all. It is a very useful thing for people who have more ram than say 2gb or less. This is ONLY for PC. Mac users I apologize, but I am not familiar how the macs work or any .exe TYPE of files.

IMPORTANT: I am not 100% sure, but I do believe you need (If you don't need, it is defiantly recommended) 64-bit java! If you have a 32-bit operating system, I am sorry. You can try, but I don't know if it will work.
Also I recommend 3gb max! I have 8gbs of ram on my computer and i run 3gb. If you have 16 or more i believe 4-5gb would be good options for you (If you would like to allow that RIDICULOUS amount).

You can get 64-bit java here.
Additional info:
~Using this method does NOT interfere with any mods to the client.
~You can use this up until version 1.5.2.
~Very simple to use and also very quick.
~'Can' MAKE YOUR GAME RUN BETTER! (Under certain circumstances)

Again, if anyone is experiencing problems with the launcher. just post a comment on this post. I will get to it and fix any bugs there are ASAP!
Thank you for your support, Have a nice day (or night)!!!

I'm actually very glad you did this.. I'm not big on "Magic Launcher" nor do i know how to mod or tweak anything. Very useful, Thank you.

You claim in your post that it can offer better performance but I've always found this questionable. Most Minecraft framerate issues are caused by the CPU because the game doesn't utilise multiple cores very effectively, because of this, adding extra RAM won't do anything for you. The only reason to add extra RAM is essentially when you're running out of memory and it is causing your client to crash with "out of memory" errors. Running Minecraft on 4GB is a bit excessive, to say the least.

Maybe excessive for normal everyday Minecraft usage, but if you have an arsenal of mods (especially explosive mods) the more RAM the better.

That is correct! Thank you. Nailed it right on the head.

When i play i have an excessive amount of mods installed, I get the "Ran out of memory" all the time at 1-2gb, and i was getting annoyed for it. Because of it, I bumped it up to 4. You are right though, but it was not advertised as a thing to make it run better, only more ram.

Quote from the OP: "~'Can' MAKES YOUR GAME RUN BETTER!", I notice you say 'Can' but this implies a potential to make it run better which is not the case.

It CAN prevent crashes, is what you should say.

Personally I used to run Technic Pack with 2GB of RAM and didn't have an issue, even with a 64px texture pack, I guess you're using more intense mods or have more installed than Technic ever did.

I have it listed as 'Can' because it CAN make it run better under certain circumstances. People looking for this shouldn't be looking for a way to improve their performance, it isn't listed as such. It is simply listed as a more RAM launcher. Nothing more, nothing less because that is what it is. This was only posted to try and help people like you. I thought I might because I know there are people looking for easy and simple ways to do this. I had a few of my friends looking and that is the reason I posted it.

Because it CAN increase your performance. Some people do not have enough RAM on their PC and therefore their game will crash (due to mods etc...). Utilising extra RAM can make your game run smoother and crash less. Try exploding loads of TNT without extra RAM and with. You'll notice a big difference (in favor of the extra RAM one).

Hello, I just want to make this clear:
You have 2 separate things: system and java runtime. Both of them can be 64 or 32 bit. However, 64-bit java can only run 64-bit system, while 32-bit java can run 32 or 64-bit system.
On 64-bit systems with 64-bit java, you can choose whatever amount of RAM you want.
On 32-bit java(even if your system is 64-bit) is max RAM for java runtime around 1GB(varies depending on OS).

I didn't know that, thank you for informing me. I did know that you must have a 64-bit system to run 64-bit java, but I didn't know about the runtime. Thank you for letting me know!

Thank you very much for clearing that up! Props to you, lol. For some reason I just couldn't explain it. I have a problem explaining things I guess. xD

I'm getting the error
"Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit."
I also got something like that when i tried the .bat method.
I should have the latest version of java on Windows 8, 64 bit.
The exact model is Asus K55n DS81, and the amazon link is: http://www.amazon.co...sl_5a93de5h7q_e
Thanks, also I have plugins on the server (bukkit plugins).
I have 4GB of ram on my computer, and launched the 2GB one.
Actually now that I look at my performance it says I have 1.5 GB available, so that might be why.
(I have no games launched, but skype is and steam is so I have no idea whats using 57% of my ram)
