Its been a long long while since i tinkered with MS, but now I'm back at it, on a different computer with more memory and yet the MS memory monitor thingy is showing I aint got squat. Even a simple 1 character scenes can top it out in no time.
Using 390 MB of an avialable 494 MB Memory Heap? Other projects eat up more and crashes. That memory overload hard to believe since I have 8 GBs system ram - and dedicated 1GB graphics card. Any help would be appreciated. Thank ya lots.
My home build system details: (Windows 7 64 bit)
Motherboard: ASUS M4A785-M
CPU: AMD Athalon II (dual core) 250mhz
Memory: DDR2 8292 MB (8GBs)
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6570 (Memory 1024 MB)
Your system RAM is irrelevant as far as it's larger than a minimum value, say 4 GB for a 32bit system. Moviestorm is a Java application so it will run on a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) on a 32bit JRE, so the memory available for its process will be limited by the maximum memory assigned to the JVM. The only way to increase the memory for the MS process is via the -Xmx argument in the command line when launching the program.
There is a configuration file in the Moviestorm installation folder (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Moviestorm if you're running on a Windows-based machine), named Moviestorm.l4j.ini
It's a text file which reads like this:
This instructs to reserve 512MB for the user process. You may try to increase this value within certain range of values.
According to the community experience a value of 768M renders the optimum performance, though there are some fellows that report good results with 1024M. Larger values are not advisable since they result in stability issues.
