Hi folks, silly question, having the memory issues have tried to adjust the memory as I like throwing on a ton of mods but having a problem with what I should use to open and save the vmparams file as.  It only shows up as  file for me and has no extension I can see.  I am using windows 10.  If someone could tell me what format to save it in I would appreciate it a lot.
Thanks in advance Grin

It's just a text file without an extension.  File extensions are purely aesthetic and don't affect how the file works; make sure that when you edit the file, it doesn't get renamed to "vmparams.txt", which will break it.

Can anyone help me?

I edited the vmparams file to allocate 6gb of ram (I have 16gb total and am using a lot of mods), however I can't figure out how to not save this as a .txt file. I've tried using notepad and wordpad but both want to rename the file. Also, I get an error that I can not save into the directory. But I am using my admin account and don't have StarSector running when saving the file.

- Is there another program I should use to edit and save the vmparams file without an extension; and
- What am I doing incorrectly to cause this to not have permission to save in the starsector folder?

Thanks for your time.

I am loving using mods, it opens the game way up from vanilla. I've been playing vanilla off and on since 2013, but mods have me hooked now.

Try this: Open it in notepad, do the changes then just hit control s to save. If that doesn't do it, I'll change mine and send it to you

It still forces .txt save, even when selecting a . extension. If you could, that would be appreciated. My email is listed under my profile, thanks.

Update: 1 - Seems right click then rename allowed me to remove the extension so the file could be read.
             2 - And saving the file to another location then moving it back into the starsector folder allowed me to put the updated file in that directory.


Thanks everyone.

Hm. The next resort is to ensure "show all file extensions" is turned on and rename the file to remove the extension (ignoring the dire warnings about changing extensions).
