#56214 I have a Ticking Memory Connection whenever I start up the game, I talked with Mr. M, and unfortunately, he can't seem to help me out. Do you perhaps know what the issue may be?

note, I have 1.5.2

I followed the instructions you supplied.

I have the most recent version of Java, and no older versions.
