Ok so i got 16gb of ram. I set the launchers ram limit to 8gb. When i start the game the ram usage (as the task manager shows) is 2-3gb. After time it just gets higher and higher that the ram usage gets to like 12gb. And that causes discord to stop itself just to get more memory for the game
And so i dont get why this happens
I've played tekkit for a couple thousand hours now and never once encountered the battle I'm going through now. I haven't played in about 6 months or so.
Some things to note:
- I have both java 32 bit and 64 bit runtime environments and I have experimented with a variety of different versions (many recommended on this forum)
-I have 16Gb of RAM, a dedicated GPU and my nVidia driver is up to date. I have also rolled back to previous versions and encountered the same issues.
-With any 64 bit java installed on the PC, Technic Launcher will not launch.
-When I uninstall 64 bit java, launcher starts (in 32 bit) but obviously ram cannot be changed etc... However whilst running, I can install 64 bit java and then change ram settings.
-Packs will download in this case however will not launch even when RAM is set below 6GB. I get a little java pop-up window saying "Hello".
Please please please provide any assistance as I'm not ready to give up just yet!
