 Post subject: Improving MapTool Performance?
PostPosted: Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:45 pm 
Hello, I would like to know of any ways to improve performance in MapTool. I get lag while the grid is being shown, and loading some maps takes longer than expected. I know the launcher has fields for inputting max and min memory (mine's at default), as well as setting the stack size (I have it set to 8), but I don't know the safe levels to set these options at. Is there a guide I can follow, or precautions I can take to help improve performance?

Any help would be appreciated.

I use these settings:
Max: 2048
Min: default
Stack: 4

If you look at wolph42's signature I think there something on MT performance and things you can do and don't do. One big thing is using VBL and setting your max vision distance.

Note that this requires 64 bit Java, which you may or may not have. 1024 is always safe.

Unless you have a REALLY old machine, most have 64 bit processing and you should always install the 64-bit java (manual download only). Or you can use version 1.4.1.7 and beyond which has java included in download.
