When it comes to running Minecraft with more allocated RAM it becomes a chore for many users. Often the idea of creating a batch file, or following tutorials to do so becomes mind boggling and hard to keep up with...
So the Development staff over at Pyrexia Craft have decided to make a service for all these users. Using a simple form, a Minecraft user can create a batch file to run on their system to allocate more RAM to their game client. This comes in handy when building mass structures where the use of mods/plugins to manipulate blocks come into play, and thus, more allocated RAM will allow smoother play and keep up with these mass block changes.
The use of the service is fairly straight forward. The user defines the path to the Minecraft.exe (obtained from http://minecraft.net) and then defines the amount of RAM they would like to allocate to their game client.
Optional features include the ability to automatically login to your Minecraft account, and or login to a Minecraft Server upon successful login.
How to use Minecraft Launcher:
*Note Minecraft Launcher assumes you have Java installed to it's default directory and runs the global 'javaw' command.
- First of all you must define the path to your Minecraft.exe in order for the game client to run. The first field calls of this path.
- In the drop down menu for "RAM to Allocate" select the option that best fits your computer. Remember If your system runs on, for example, 4gigs of RAM, yous can allocate up to 3gigs, but with background programs, it's best to use 2gigs.
- *Optionally you can select "Yes" radio button for "Automatically Login?" and a form will appear for your user account information. Supply the information as you would use to login to minecraft, otherwise the launcher will fail to log you in. *Note Minecraft Launcher and it's partner host Pyrexia Craft do not save, store, record, share, or sell your personal information in any way, shape or form!
- *Optionally you can select "Yes" radio button for "Automatically login to server?" only if you have said yet to the above step. If you have, supply the server you would like to automatically connect to. It should be a valid server IP or domain name. Example: 188.8.131.52:25565 or pyrexiacraft.com:25565
- Be sure to copy your MinecraftLauncher.bat out of your Downloads folder. More specifically it's best to copy the bat, and your minecraft.exe to your /Roaming/.minecraft/ folder. Then you can create a shortcut to the desktop of the MinecraftLauncher.bat and give it a nifty icon.
