If your computer is above the minimum spec, you may want to increase the memory available to Moviestorm, so that it is less likely to run out of memory.
Possible symptoms of Moviestorm running out of memory include:
- Significant slowdown after using Moviestorm for a while, or when going to the Cutting Room or the Dressing room.
- 'Error switching scene' messages when loading or changing scenes.
- Find the install directory for Moviestorm (C:/Program Files/Moviestorm General Release, if you went with the default).
- From that folder, browse to boot, and open boot.properties in a text editor (such as Notepad).
- Edit the following line (or create it, if it does not exist):
- Change the default of 256M to a larger number (we recommend that you dont increase it above 1/2 your system RAM - e.g. 512M on a 1 gig memory, or 1024M on a 2 gig memory).
- Use Finder to find Applications/Moviestorm 1.1
- Right click (or control click) the application and select 'Browse Contents', and look in the Contents folder
- Open info.plist in the Properties List Editor
- Expand the java tab
- In the VMOptions property, find the bit that says -Xmx256M
- Change the default of 256M (or 300M) to a larger number (we recommend that you don't increase it above 1/2 your system RAM - e.g. 512M on a 1 gig memory, or 1024M on a 2 gig memory)
Of course, if you only have 512Mb RAM to start with, you're going to have problems regardless. Sorry, but there's not a lot we can do about that.
