Hi Guys, I wondered if anyone could shed any light on my trouble? I’ve checked out loads of forum posts on the Heap size problem, but have been unable to cure mine. As soon as I try to view the map (opens in a seperate window, so is not always visible) I get an out of memory error, while all counters/units show up, the map image does not. (On occaision the left hand part of the map image only, will appear.) I’ve experimented for hours, literaly, trying to prevent this happening. I’ve increased my heap size to 1024mb, (I tried higher figures, and reached 1600mb before the heap size too large error occured, but 1024mb seems to be better in any case, allowing some of the map at least, to appear.) I close and reopen vassal each time. I have the “memory mapped image preferred” option on already, and “Hi quality scaling” off. I’ve adjusted the AMvassal.jnlp to . I’ve defragmented my ram, I’ve run a memory manager, (which incidentaly shows I still have 1+mb of ram free when the error occurs). I’ve tried turning off as many background services as possible, all to no avail. I have no trouble with any other module I’ve used. I removed the extra map extensions too, made no difference.
I don’t believe Windows XP can access any more than 3Gb of ram, so adding more isn’t an option. I can’t believe the module uses such a huge amount of memory anyway? (Admitedly the map is HUGE, and a .jpg rather than a .png, could that be the cause?)
Any help would be much appreciated!
