Memory Settings and Units

Post by Hypersphere »

Would it be possible to add a hint in the memory setting for each engine regarding the units to be used, or would each of the engines recognize standard abbreviations such as MB and GB? In addition, should there be a space between the number and the unit (e.g., 16 GB) or should there be no space (e.g., 16GB)?

This depends on the code/engine in question. Some code allow a unit to be appended, and others not. But you raise an interesting point, in that we can employ a "hint" to this effect in the HTML that displays on mouseover. I will consider this!
