    For testing purposes I would like to create an emulator with much more than the standard 16 megabytes of memory. I am trying to create very large Bitmaps and need more memory on the emulator. I am currently getting this error.

    java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: bitmap size exceeds VM budget

    In Eclipse I attempted to create a new emulator with 192 megabytes of memory "Max VM application heap size 192". The application still crashed when it reached about 16 MB of memory.

    I would appreciate any help on this issue.
