Problem: Minecraft kicks me off every 10 seconds to the "saving chunks" screen then freezes and says minecraft has crashed.
Reason im asking the obvious: All the results from yahoo answers or related are "why would you want to do that" or extremely sarcastic things like "touch your pc with a fork" and stupid crap people post to be "clever" on those sites. Anyway, i just recieved a 3200 dollar PC in the mail and i can take over the damn world with this much power, but i cant play minecraft. Help please? --- Join my guild..
But I tried that last night on a laptop and I didn't notice any change whatsoever (However the topic to do it like that is located on the official minecraft forums in the "Tutorials" section if you are interested)
The way that works better for me is to create a batch file Open Notepad and paste javaw -Xmx768m -Xms256m -cp "%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\minecraft.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\jinput.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\lwjgl.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\lwjgl_util.jar" -Djava.library.path="%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\natives" net.minecraft.client.Minecraft
Change the drop down box to "All Files" and save as a .bat extension
On the top line you see -Xmx768 -Xms256. Xmx### is the maximum allowed (in Megabytes) and Xms### is the initial amount allocated (Also in megabytes).
Figure out how much RAM you have. Open the taskmanager (ctrl+alt+delete) and see how much RAM you have free with all of your current processes/programs running. And then play around with the numbers you have left.
I have 2 gigs of RAM total, running at 41% physical memory usage. So that's why I put my max at 768MB (So I'm not using 100% of my total RAM at any given time) and the 256 I randomly put in and it seems to work perfectly. Haven't had a single memory crash since. --- Anytime something doesn't make sense.... A wizard did it! MAC11 = OP ::: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1ka4Zxj_a4
Also, the reason why my post has more lines is because it includes the crash reporter too. You can do what I said and play with the numbers that the second poster told you to while using his code, it's the same thing --- Anytime something doesn't make sense.... A wizard did it!

tried that too just now, crashed, and on top of that my skin went away and my achievments reset. tried the game again WITH OUT your way of doing it, my skin is back, unknown if anything else happened as of yet. --- Join my guild..
Well according to that you are only using 141/989mb of your memory which is only 14% so it seems like it isn't really a memory problem.
edit: don't really know what to tell you, I haven't had any problems like that yet. Maybe try switching to peaceful mode in case there are like 500 ghasts secretly lagging you somewhere. Personally I've never seen a chunk update count that high, but I haven't seen that many screens so I dunno if its unusual. But that sounds like a lot of activity.
This might be obvious, but just in case, make sure you have the 64 bit Java installed and not the 32 bit. --- Blizzcon 2010 original Song Contest Entry - Hellscream's Warsong http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kqXWPKtXqo
