I have followed a tutorial on how to allow minecraft more memory
And when i do that with the right paths My batch file opens and closes so fast i cant read it..
This is just a small guide I made cause it's 3:30 AM, I have class in the morning and I totally wanted to be against the establishment.

For now this is only for Windows XP (Windows 7 and Vista need minor tweaks - see below). I'll add linux but most linux users know how to do this anyway. Also mac users suck (o.O).
First figure out how much RAM (Random Access Memory) you have to work with.
#1 Click the start button
#2 Type into run: dxdiag
#3 A window should load and it should say XXXX RAM.
That's how much memory you have... congrats!
Now minecraft uses a default memory of 495Mbs, but you can allocate more. Here's how you do it (assuming you have more).
#1First create a .txt file in the same folder as your minecraft.exe.
#2Then open that file.
#3Type these two lines of text:
"Your java path here/javaw.exe" java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar "Your minecraft path here/minecraft.exe"
#4Then save that file as a .bat file (aka Batch file). The way you do this is in the menu, hit Save-As, click "All File Types" and then change the name from XXX.txt to XXX.bat. The icon should change if you did it correctly and you should be able to run it. Hit F3 to make sure the allocated memory changed while running minecraft.
Below are some troubleshooting points and explanations:
The path needs to be exactly right for both your java path (for javaw.exe) and for your minecraft.exe.
If you are running 64bit or Windows 7 (which will sometimes default the java installation path)
Your path will be under Program Files (x64)/Java/etc.
Also the javaw.exe will most likely be java6.exe (it depends)
An example path is given for XP:
An example path is given for Vista/Windows 7:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe"
Xmx is maximum memory allocated
Xms is initial memory allocated
You can use any number you want potentially.
Anything else you need clarified, leme know.
(And yes you did waive all your rights muwahahaa)
EDIT: Edited the command line
I want to know what i did wrong
That is what i typed im on windows 7 32 bit.
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\javaw.exe" java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar "C:\Users\Tyler\Desktop\Minecraft stuff\minecraft.exe"
I have skype if anybody can help contact me there or on here. I followed it EXACTLY how youre supposed to do it.
