Allocating more memory to Minecraft
Posted 26 November 2011 - 01:21 PM
In the video, he talks about how to use a batch file to allocate more memory to Minecraft.
He uses a command in the batch file like this:
javaw -Xmx8192m -Xms4096m -jar "I:\Users\Docm77\Desktop\Minecraft.exe"
This command apparently runs Minecraft with 8GB of RAM.
In the video, he explains that you can add or subtract from the two numbers in the second and third position of the command in order to allocate more or less RAM.
Anyway, I was just interested to hear people's opinions about this.
Have you tried it? If so, is it worth a try?
Does it work for you or does it perhaps not make any difference?
For those more computer savvy people, perhaps you can let us know why it should or shouldn't work.

The difference was between unplayablably slow and completely smooth for me.

I followed all of the instructions but it just tells me, cannot find main class: java.

No, it isn't butter, it is gold
Now that we have that sorted out, can you please leave, thanks?

But when I play I only use about 30-50% allocated memory of 1G and when I allocated 2G I got 100 extra fps but it could just be me lol no matter

My computer has 4 GB of ram, when I alocated 2 GB, it gets really hot then minecraft becomes laggy, and when I just set it to default (1GB)
seems to run smoother

Could not create the java virtual machine

For users with 64 bits machines with 64 bit JVM the game eventually enters the 64 bit address, and by eventually I mean it will seldom enter the 4Gb memory range.
For users that, on top of 64 bit architecture, use visual range modders, then it might be a good idea to allocate more memory to the game, though JVM and the OS will do that automatically, so no need to tweaks like these.

And can I just put the .bat into a server folder to make it work better?
