Adding more Ram/Memory

Describes both Technic and Minecraft Launchers

Pixelmon Generations sometimes will need more ram than the default 1gb that comes on most launchers. It is recommended to use at least 2gbs on Multiplayer, but more is typically better. Find your launcher below and follow the listed steps to add more memory!

Technic

Open the Technic Launcher Select the “Launcher Options” button in the upper right Select the “Java Settings” tab Select the “Memory” dropdown and choose the desired amount

Minecraft

Open the Minecraft Launcher Select the “Installations” tab Select your profile for Pixelmon Select the “More Options” button In the “JVM Arguments” box, change "-Xmx1G" to your desired amount. Example: "-Xmx4G"

Can’t select above 1gb of memory? You need to install a 64bit version of Java from this page https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp! For Windows, download Windows Offline (64-bit)

Locating a crash report

Describes both Technic Launchers, Minecraft Launchers, and Server

Crash reports are sometimes necessary to help find the cause of crashing issues. Find your launcher below and follow the listed steps to get a crash report!

Technic

Locate your “.technic” folder. (Windows: Windows Key + R and search “%appdata%”) Find the “modpacks” folder and the “pixelmon-513-pro” folder Open the “crash-reports” folder and get the most recent one Send the file or upload the contents to a website like PasteBin

Minecraft

Locate your “.minecraft” folder. (Windows: Windows Key + R and search “%appdata%”) Open the “crash-reports” folder and get the most recent one Send the file or upload the contents to a website like PasteBin

Locating the config folder

After updating the mod, it is suggested to regenerate your Pixelmon configs. This will reset the files, but the newer settings will appear.

You can Regenerate your files by deleting pixelmon.hocon and BetterSpawnerConfig.json by hand and restarting the modpack or deleting the whole /config folder (may lose custom settings on other mods, if added in the pack).

Forge

In your search bar type %appdata%
Follow %appdata%/.minecraft/config.

Technic

Technic will automatically regenerate your /config folder after each update.

It can still be done by hand by typing in the search bar%appdata%
Then follow %appdata%/.technic/modpacks/pixelmon-513-pro/config.

Server

Look for server files folder (it can be located in your pc or on the hosting service website, depending on the service)
Open it and search for /config folder.
