Bit late, but the warnings are that:
- It's best to set Xms and Xmx to the same value
- Xmx is 9 GB which is more than half of system RAM, which isn't recommended (also, going above 6 GB or at the most 8 isn't recommended either)

Cheers for that info. I remember old versions that sort of thing was ok, and 8gb was a recommended level for lots of mods. I will knock it down to 8gb/8gb.
Cheers again.

I just want to say thank you again for all the information in this thread. With the new update I forgot to alter the file.

For others looking for the info:

1 GB to MB = 1024 MB

2 GB to MB = 2048 MB

3 GB to MB = 3072 MB

4 GB to MB = 4096 MB

5 GB to MB = 5120 MB

6 GB to MB = 6144 MB

7 GB to MB = 7168 MB

8 GB to MB = 8192 MB

9 GB to MB = 9216 MB

10 GB to MB = 10240 MB

Ok so I'm trying to increase RAM allocation on my mac. I have made sure Java is updated. I have an i5 so it's 64bit. I have 16gb RAM. But when I change the values in starsector_mac.sh to try to use 4gb (with values of "-Xms6144m -Xmx6144m -Xss2048k") it just says "The application "Starsector.app" can't be opened." (I also tried at 4gb with 4096 values for both). Anyone know what might be causing the problem?

Fixed it thanks to Histidine on discord!

"best I can think of is that your text editor is adding a BOM character to the file, or otherwise messing up the formatting"

Yep downloaded TextMate and made the same changes and it started no problem.

Thanks for the conversion rates; don't know if it will solve my problems, but thanks for taking the time to post :)
