Problem with displaying the Growth Power


 Share

Recommended Posts

OK...a couple of things that I'm seeing in there:

 

1. You're going to want to close some of the characters.  HD is loading 26 characters into memory during startup...while not an issue per se, it will tend to bog things down.
 

2. One of the characters (I believe Gorgosaurus.hdc) appears to have an inordinately large image file associated with it.  The image file is causing Java to run out of memory on your system.  You'll want to either change that image, unload/close that character, or increase the memory available to Java (you'll be able to do that in File -> Preferences...)

Glad you got it working!  You'll likely still want to look at the size of the image files that you're associating with characters, shrinking them if they're overly large -- throwing more memory at HD will let it load them, but there's rarely a need for that kind of overhead.

What is a good rule-of-thumb to use for maximum image file size in HD? 500k? Smaller?

There aren't really any hard and fast rules for that...beyond using something reasonable.  Your character likely doesn't need to have a gigapixel image associated with it, so size the image to suit the purpose before adding it to your character.
