Before i could overload the memory but now for some reason with the new update i can't seem to set
the heap to a certain amount of memory so after a while i get this error:
any idea how to increase it?

Why are you running out of memory? Are you creating new textures every frame? Are you forgetting to release textures/sounds when no longer needed? Use a profiler like VisualVM to find out where Slick is allocating memory.

well yes, i preload everything to test if it builds and runs,
with a previous version of android i could tweak the avd to run on a 500 mb heap
but now it seems that this parameter isn't taken into count anymore with the
jdk 16 of android.. it stops always at 40mb no matter what i say in that variable..

ofcourse i need to change the loading aspect but still i would like to see if it runs..

If this is an ARM based emulator, you forgot to add the armeabi and armeabi-v7a folders to your Android project's libs/ folder. Please follow the setup guide here:

If this is an x86 based emulator, then i'm afraid there's no solution for this issue yet. We do not compile for Android x86 at the moment.
