You should be just fine and will just eat a bit more memory...

Sounds like removing hard limits for layers, classes and symbols should be high on the "todo" list as well...

Hello everybody.

I have an application and are in need of using more symbols than what is set as MS_MAXSYMBOLS in mapsymbol.h file (64).

If I say increases this number to 128 and recompile, what implications does this have? 

Just use of more memory?

Anybody got any experience in using the MS_MAXSYMBOLS?
