Anyone know how to allocate more Ram for Minecraft?

I have 8 gigs and think I'm experiencing more bugs when using super HD packs so would like to try and allocate more ram.

I believe you need to use a batch script to do this.

One way of doing it is a batch script. Another is to use the Technic Launcher. You will need to copy the files in your .minecraft folder into %appdata%/.techniclauncher/vanilla, and then boot up the Technic Launcher. Select "Vanilla" in the top-left dropdown menu, then click options. Select a higher amount of RAM to allocate (with your amount I'd say allocate 4 gb) and click ok, then login. I'd only recommend this if you will use the TL for one or more of its modpacks as well.

You can do either of the above, however if you use a batch file I don't think you can go online (I think it bypasses the login screen, so you'll be offline automatically) But that was a long time ago when I tried it so things may have changed.

The surefire way to do it is this

Magic Launcher and MultiMC (two replacement launchers) both have options for increasing allocated ram. Plus, they both take a lot of the fuss out of installing mods that normally have to go in the jar.
