I just downloaded MCreator 1.7.7
Everytime I try to download MCreator I always have some sort of issue but usually I can fix it with some work. This problem however seems impossible to fix. I am trying to install MCreator 1.7.7 and as it is 'Setting up Minecraft Forge MDK' and is downloading 'decompileMc' it will stop and tell me I need to allocate more RAM Java JMV that is not the problem, i've done that before. The program does not let me access preferences since MCreator hadn't fully installed yet, even when they error screen comes up I try to click on preferences and since the error screen is up I can't and when I try to close the error screen to access the preferences it forces me to close MCreator. The error message even tells me to go to Preferences! The error code is JAVA_JVM_HEAP_SPACE [-14]. Please Help.
EDIT by developers:
From MCreator 1.7.8 on, there is not more such file as mcreator.properties. Now, you need to do the following. Go to your user home folder of the system you use. Here find the folder .mcreator. Go in it. You should find a file called preferences. If there is no such file, create one and give it no extension - the whole file name should be preferences.
If there is already a file, open it and look for the parameters "xms": and "xmx": and set them to the appropriate values. If there is no file, create one with the following contents:
Set the xms and xmx parameters to the desired values, but keep in mind that setting too high value may also cause issues on 32 bit systems.
