When should I change the amount of allocated memory?
We all love to play Minecraft, especially when using high-resolution resource packs and shaders, but using such resources in Minecraft makes it power-hungry. It consumes a lot of memory (RAM) on your computer. If your game does not have enough memory allocated to it, its frames (FPS) may decrease, and you might start experiencing lag spikes (FPS drops), it may load slowly, and sometimes it might even crash. If you start experiencing any of the mentioned problems, you should consider using the built-in option to change the amount of allocated memory.
How can I add more memory to Minecraft on the Badlion Client launcher?
Note: we do not suggest allocating more than half of the available memory. You should keep the allocated memory between 2-4 GB, depending on how much total RAM your computer has.
If you want to change the amount of allocated memory, you need to do the following:
- Open the Badlion Client launcher and click the "Settings" button, as shown in the screenshot below.
- Find "Minecraft Settings" and locate the "Allocate RAM (MB)" slider. You can click anywhere on the slider or use the button to change the amount of the allocated memory.
Note: if it does not let you increase memory, it means your system is using most of the RAM and needs most of it to work functionally. Badlion Client can allow you to take what's left to avoid any system problems & crashes.
