Lag when 50+ screen prototype

Ibrahim Turan shared this problem 4 years ago
Solved

When I make very large prototypes (50+ pages), with lots of detail, then the applications starts to run slow and become laggy. Could this be because of the large prototyper files? Or is my system maybe not powerfull enough.. (8gb ram dual core macbook). Also what programming language is prototyper build with?

A way to increase performance would be to split your prototype file into different prototypes. Also try increasing the memory used by Justinmind Prototyper. In order to do that change, go to your Justinmind installation folder and open the file 'JustinmindPrototyper.ini' with a text editor. Write 1024m next to the parameter -xmx, so it reads -xmx1024m (instead of -xmx512m).


Also, try to reduce the quality of the images.


Our program is built with java. Here you will find more information: http://www.justinmind.com/plugin-mark...

Hi, Can i also configure memory to be 2048? So -xmx2048m .


Since I have 16gb of ram, it would be no problem I guess.


Also, while working with designers they give high-res icons what we use in prototypes. Could you build a feature that (when agreed) automatically crops/trims those images so they will not be that big anymore? Because now I think I have too many, and too big images in prototyper.

If you have 16gb of ram, you shouldn't have any problems.


About the feature, I forward to development team.
