You can change the allocated memory in the Java section of your control panel to increase it

1. Start
2. Control Panel
3. Java icon
4. Java Tab
5. Click on view
6. Under parameters add "xmx512m" (without the quotes)
7. You can change the 512 to whatever you want the allocated memory to be

PROTIP: You can change the allocated memory in the source code if you wish, but this requires you to have an understanding of Java programming and a compiler and have the linux version on minecraft.

And to all the people saying you cant edit the source code, you're a mongoloid mouth breather and no one cares what you think.

EDIT:
Or just be pro an do it this way, works much better.

That's bull. You can do the programming on any OS, not just linux.


And the easiest way is the way he linked to. I recommend using at least 1024M in both places(one gig of memory).

When I do it your "Simple" way, Vheissu, I type the "xmx1024m" into the paramaters section, and click ok... and when I come back into that area, the parameter section is empty again. Is that normal?

Uh oh, we've got a Linux gangster.

Reminds me of the professor I had who basically advertised Java and Linux like it was a religious calling. I can't count how many times I heard "There's a much richer world out there - richer than Windows would let you have." Went to his office hours one time and he had nothing but Sun Microsystems hardware.

Sorry to break it to you, but Microsoft and Apple aren't evil, and presenting safety options is not the same as restricting the user from anything.
