Here I Stand - trouble playing module

When attempting to run the Here I Stand module, I keep getting stuck very early on. The error is “The application has run out of memory. Java heap space. To decrease memory usage, try reducing the number of colors in your display.”

At that point, the only thing I can do is close VASSAL using the task manager. I have switched to a lower number of colors, but it doesn’t help.

I have 2GB of RAM, so I don’t think that’s the issue. And I am able to run other modules (such as Jambo and Hammer of the Scots) without a problem.

I’m running VASSAL 3.0.17 with Windows XP Home edition.

Any suggestions?


Thus spake “bwingrave”:

The problem is not with the amount of memory that you have, but rather the
amount of memory (the “maximum heap size”) which VASSAL is allowed to use.
Maximum heap size is difficult to adjust in 3.0.17. I’d recommend trying
3.1.0-beta3 instead, where you can adjust it from within Preferences.

Links for downloading 3.1.0-beta3 and the release notes are here:

Keep in mind that this is a beta release, and so there may be bugs.
