World in Flames heap size loop

Postby peterjfrigate » July 26th, 2017, 1:09 pm

OSX, 8GB

Stuck in a loop when loading: first it says heap size is too big and will reset with defaults, then the blue circle spins for a while after which it says the heap size is too small. Then the process repeats. I can't get at the preferences in WIF to change the heap settings.
Dumb, but I caused this by initially making the heap size huge (the module was loading very slowly). I tried deleting the module and downloading a fresh copy but the problem is still there.

Thanks for any help!

This post has instructions for editing the heap size directly:
