    posted a message on Minecraft Out Of Memory (Mac OSX Lion)
    if you've allocated more memory to java, but you still 'run out of memory', you obviously didn't allocate enough lol

    in my opinion, it's safe to allocate half of your total ram. anymore than that, and it may cause a bsod in windows(or a total system crash), and w/e it is for macs.

    512mb for 1gb,
    1024mb for 2gb,
    1536mb for 3gb,
    2048mb for 4gb,
    2560mb for 5gb,
    3072mb for 6gb,
    3584mb for 7gb,
    4096mb for 8gb, so on and so forth.

    1. close your browser. browser cache and minecraft cache create some unexplained error when the browser has been opened for prolonged amounts of time.
    2. if you use an intel chipset, disable OpenGL, it isn't compatable.
    3. change performance to 'max FPS', so it uses max cpu/gpu to perform best quality.
    4. open your gpu's image display settings, and make sure it's set to 'performance', rather than quality.
    5. uninstall chrome.
    6. allocate more memory to java, see: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/350344-allocating-more-memory-to-java-windows/
    7: restart your pc.

    @op

    intel doesn't support OpenGL, disable it

    @jeremy, this probably applies to you too.

    if your aim isn't lolterrible, the dragon never comes in range to attack you. the endermen are easily avoidable.

    that video is very outdated now.

    go to:

    ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft

    within this foldier should be a 'Texture Packs' folder, drop the texture pack .zip file in it. if your mac automatically decompressed it(use to be common?), re-compress it.

    i'm stumped honestly. i wager it has something to do with drivers, but the quick fixes i can think of are unrelated.

    is there enough memory being allocated to java to handle the client? there's a guide to add more if not. without enough memory, it could cause an unstable/laggy/crashing client.

    Want a challenge? Kill the Enderdragon on Hardcore Mode. Everytime you die, restart. You'll be busy for a while.

    that's not nearly as difficult as you seem to think it is.

    then it's not cpu related, or shouldn't be(hardware/driver faults aren't uncommon with recent cpu's). perhaps your gpu is stressed, or your hardware is overheated? open your nvidia control panel, under 'adjust image settings', and assure it's set to performance. after, make sure your browser is closed and try to run minecraft.

    chrome causes many issues as well. unknown to the general public, chrome receives near no support from many major plugins(namely, adobe). the entire browser is written in flash, and is as unstable as they come.

    you should upload images to an image site, such as photobucket, imageshack, imgur, tinypic, etc.

    posted a message on Minecraft Running out of memory
    Quote from StrangeOne101

    Thanks for the reply. Now that I think about it, it probably was the texture packs. I had about 6 installed at the time so that probably was why. Though, it deleted four of them (keeping one I made and one other one I like) and it still comes up with the same message. Do I have to delete all of them to stop it happening?

    texture packs have no affect on in-game performance while they're not being used(unless, of course, you're totally out of hdd space or something).

    allocating more memory to java is a quick fix, if that doesn't fix it, make sure your version of java is updated.

    i assumed it was the same cache error that plagues all players from time-to-time.

    make sure, in your minecraft options, you have 'max fps' ticked. the OpenGL function can also cause a significant amount of fps lag if your gpu is compatible and already stressed.

    i'll ask of your cpu and physical memory usage before and while minecraft is launched(viewable at the bottom of your task manager). if you're averaging over 20% before minecraft is launched, also possibly list other programs using 40k+ memory.

    if this is proper, i'll assume it's related to your gpu. perhaps you're set for more quality than performance, which even quality freaks have come to terms with.

    Cave spiders will ****. YOU. UP.

    no they wont?

    i agree op, it's depressing how easy the game has become. not only is combat pointlessly easy, but ores are significantly more common. the newgen have ruined this game, much like they ruin others.

    this lag, is it an incredibly intense fps lag that consumes 100% cpu?

    if so, close your browser and reopen minecraft.

    adults can't hack? and here i thought some people made a job of it.

    crackers aren't "hacking". it guesses a password from a predefined list of every possibly combination of letters/numbers/symbols/etc. that's included in the wordlist. you could google these list, and a program to do it for you.

    it's still illegal, though. enjoy your ban.

    posted a message on Your Most "Bosslike" Minecraft moments.
    i made the mistake of building a wood house in a multiplayer server(what's worse, i built it on the surface). a griefer strolled by, caught it on fire.

    so i blew up his house, tossed his items in my incinerator, and got banned for griefing.
