Launching a .jar file with more memory
Hey guys, Complete linux noob here!
im pretty handy with ms and osx but i thought it was time to start on linux so you will probably see me rearing my ugly head around here a lot for a while :P
Im trying to launch minecraft with more memory but all my searching just come up with is "just launch it using java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -cp Minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame"
...this is all well and good but i have no idea how! on windows i use a similar method but there you just make a .bat file. Im assuming its something similar on linux but using the terminal. If anyone could show me this step by step i would love you forever and maybe even give you a cookie (yummy kind, not the interwebz kind).
If it helps you to give me a more accurate answer my minecraft.jar file is in the home directory. pwd gives me /home/user . dont know if that helps but i thought i should mention anything i know lol.
Thanks in advanced guys and girls, I eagerly await your response.
still didnt work im afraid :(
