Any option ? Another method ? Please upgrade to the current bleeding-jumbo off GitHub. I've just checked that there was indeed a limit of 15 for this format in 1.8.0-jumbo-1 (which is now 4 years old), and it's increased to 125 in the current code. Additionally, even in 1.8.0-jumbo-1 there was a higher limit in the OpenCL version of this format, so you could also use that (ideally on a GPU) - but even then upgrading to the current code is highly preferable. I hope this helps. Alexander
