Out of Memory warning

memory FSX shut down

Best Answer CaptAus , 09 September 2013 - 08:00 PM

Hi all,

 

An update to this topic.

 

I'm not that disciplined when it comes to back-ups and the downloading of the most recent drivers.  I have recently dowloaded the most recent drivers from Nvidia and moved some of the sliders in Setting to the left.  I haven't had an OOM message since.  Mind you I'm not that pleased with having to sacrifice some of the graphics quality to achieve this.  It really does 'p**' me off when I can use the full capacity settings of FSX, evern when I have a pretty good specs for my computer.

 

Dean, you may wish to consider this topic ANSWERED.

Recently I have been getting an Out of Memory message window come up while in flight and FSX closes down when I click OK to the window.  Is this related to the fact that I have been installing software such as the PMDG 737-800 NGX and ORBX software such as Brisbane Airport lately? The computer I use is almost exclusively for flight sim (and dare I say, Train Sim).  In my D drive where FSX and Train Sim are located I have 705GB free of 931GB. So considering the computer's specs shown below, should I have to purchase additional RAM, or is there some other issue?

Greg,

 

If you were running 32-bit Windows, then I would say that is your likely problem, but since you have 64-bit and 8GB RAM, that is another story.

 

Some users have had success increasing the pagefile size in Windows to fix this issue. That would be the best starting point at least. Googling this should fins you info on how to change it, and also what figure is useful for your RAM and hard drive space remaining.

 

But consider you are using two of the heaviest load addons that exist in FSX - PMDG 737NGX and FTX Brisbane (a known performance killer)... That combination will bring almost any system to its knees or contribute at least to the occurrence of OOM errors.

Dean,

I have done some Google investigation on inceasing pagefile size and tried to get my head around what this means.  Some say yes go for it, other say don't touch it.  Not being as computer tech savvy as I would like to be I am reluctant at this stage to go down that path.

Hi Greg,
Rono may want to talk to you about your train Sim. :-)

Cheers,
Dennis

Might just have to avoid flying the NGX or using FTX Brisbane then I guess?

And of course this; an old but glorious topic - http://www.simforums...topic29041.html
 
Really useful in setting up FSX for best performance.

Hi Greg,
Before you make your final decision whether or not to operate, have a look at Clem's link (above). It deals with, among other things, OOM errors, and how to tweak your system to deal with them. It is a clear, step by step explanation. Worth a look. It is fairly long, because it deals with tuning both your hardware and fsx, so you may have to stick with it until you come to the bits that interest you.
Good luck!

Cheers,
Dennis

Thanks for the advice guys.  I will have a look at Clem's link, but i am still reluctant to tinker with stuff I don't understand.

Dean's post on 13 May 2013 spoke about "two of the heaviest load addons that exist in FSX - PMDG 737NGX and FTX Brisbane (a known performance killer)... That combination will bring almost any system to its knees or contribute at least to the occurrence of OOM errors".

 

I have not had  a problem with that combination with my new computer.

 

However, I wonder if the new FTX Southampton is a candidate for that title.

 

This weekend, I used it for the first time. Once loaded, the visual are slow to sequentially appear on the screen.

 

I was flying a QW Avro. I used it for four flights, one from FTX Cardiff through FTX England to FTX Southampton, one from FTX Southampton back towards Cardiff and the rest from FTX Southampton through FTX England over the Channel and through FSX default Europe towards Aerosoft airports. On the first four, I experienced OOM messages and a close down. Of those, the arrival at Southampton was one, just as I touched down on the runway. Yet, the fifth over the Channel was fine, even landing and taking off at about five Aerosoft airports in Germany and the Netherlands.

Gary,

 

Interesting. Did you happen to try the PMDG 737 NGX at Southampton? I'd be interested to know if you get OOMs with that combination. I don't have Southampton so I cannot comment.

I was  using only the QW Avro.

 

I will try the PMDG 737 NGX there next weekend. I will try the Twin Otter as well to get a broader spectrum of experimental outcomes.

Ok let us know how you go. Obviously, if all aircraft give you an OOM there, then logic says it may be the scenery at fault. If only the QW Avro OOMs there, then its likely something with the Avro.
