I have to admit I have never understood the Max Heap Size nor the way that Vassal seems to very inelegantly (in my view) try to handle it.
I am working on a module where several weeks ago I had to increase the Max Heap Size due to an out of memory message. Having increased the Max Heap Size all was working well and I was able to make further changes to the module.
Today I got another Out of memory message which required me to increase the Max Heap Size which I did, but obviously by too much as there was nothing to indicate how much it should be increased by. Now when I try and open the module I get a message that says that the Max Heap Size set is too large and that the default of 120mb will be used instead and then attempts to start the Module, resulting in an out of memory message that states that the Max Heap Size needs to be increased in preferences, but I cannot do this as I cannot open the module.
So what am I supposed to do now, hopefully the answer is not to start over. I have tried opening earlier back up versions but I get the same message and same problem, ie the Max Heap size set for the module is too large, so it is reset to the failsafe size of 120mb, then unable to open module due to running out of memory and Heap Size needing to be increased.
Is there any way of changing the Max Heap Size without opening the module?
