"will crash and warns not enough browser memory"
4GB of RAM is certainly enough memory. This sounds more like a plug to get you to purchase memory. Does this dialog give you a link to click by chance? It wouldn't hurt to try Firefox. Some gaming sites are more user friendly with one browser and not the other.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 22, 2009 7:32 PM (in response to churcht)Well, I tried firefox. It was worse. Don't know if it freezes or not, but it was so slow on gameplay. I am back to Safari, and if I reboot the MBP prior to playing I don't usually have problems. Wish this could be adjusted (amount of memory allocated to Safari).MBP2.6GHz, 4GB, 200GB-7200RPM, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

Currently Being ModeratedMay 23, 2009 4:20 AM (in response to churcht)OS X dynamically allocates memory as is needed, so provided you have enough memory and the game isn't trying to use 4GB of memory then it should work fine.
What I think is happening is that the game is actually a Java applet and they do usually allocate memory upto a predefined limit. Java applications are more often seen to give 'Out of memory' errors like this due to this limit.
Check the Java preferences tool (in Applications > Utilities > Java) to see if you can increase the amount of memory an applet can allocate.iMac G5 20" 2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 8, 2009 10:16 AM (in response to iBod)I went to the java folder and opened preferences. Memory is maxed at 1GB for applets. I am not sure why I cannot specify more. I have an intego app now cleaning my caches on a regular basis, so I am having less trouble. I think another app I am running (1 password) may be taking some resources as well.
THanks for any and all helpMBP2.6GHz, 4GB, 200GB-7200RPM, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
