So, I have a private Minecraft server just for my friends, I run it off of a laptop that I keep running most of the time. Is it better to run with the GUI or without it? Is it better running from command prompt? I’d just like to know how I could have the GUI AND allocate 4GB of RAM at the same time, I use PaperSpigot 1.14.4, running on a Windows 10 Home laptop.
java -Xmx4G -jar paper-<version>.jar
This should allocate 4GB of RAM to the server and open the GUI, provided you’re on Windows and you have the correct version of Java installed.
I personally go with no GUI, here’s how you would go about it:
- Open Command Prompt
- Navigate to your directory (folder)
java -Xmx4G -jar paper-<version>.jar nogui
