"The config file is at <Windows hard drive> Program files\RPCEmu\rpc 
in which vram_size can be altered to 2,4 or 8. However, in my 
installation of RPCEmu 0.8.9, running RISC OS 4.39, on a Vista host, 
changes to the vram_size are ignored and, when the program is run, the 
parameter is re-set to the maximum value shown in the Settings> 
Configure menu, ie 2MB.


Indeed. I wonder how Jim managed it? I'm not too Windows-savvy: I 
found and opened the rpc file using Notepad, altered the VRAM value 
and then had the choice of saving it back as .txt or 'other files'. 
Having noted that it is a .cfg file I chose the latter. It failed to 
save, and I assume administrator privileges are required?
