View Full Version : "Out of Memory"!! on PC

08-20-2014, 11:22 AM
I've been getting this for a long time now. Hell, I thought it was my vid card which was a GTX470 so I replaced it w/ a GTX770 and I still get it.

If I'm not getting out of sync or disconnected I'm getting this. Anyone else getting this? Trion you have any plans on fixing it?

A : you need to clean up your hard drive


B : you have a ram leek somewhere and need to plug it.

thats the only thing that comes to mind someone might have a better answer for you.

Thanks for the reply. I'm running a Samsung 256GB 830 w/ 70gb of free space.
I suppose I could have a leek. Is there a way to tell and fix?

I noticed all this happening as soon as the Proxy Memory slider was introduced. I've played w/ the setting and it doesn't make a difference where I put the slider.

I have sometimes had an error along the lines of "failed to allocate texture memory". It happened a lot during popular events with lots of players, but I haven't seen it since the sillycon patch - so either that particular problem got fixed, or there just aren't enough players around any more.

Don't blame your machine for any memory errors. It's just Trion quality coding.

defiance is a 32 bit game.

this means it has a maximum addressable memory footprint of 3.5 gigs.

the more VRAM you have, the less actual RAM it can use.

you did not post up your system specs. i am guessing you dont have at least 8 gigs of ram.

i would recommend restarting your computer, and then trying to play and see if you get this issue.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm surprised more people aren't running into my problem?

I have a I7 Ivy bridge w/ 16gb of ram and a GTX770.

I get the same problem sporadically. The client seems to have a limitation on the amount of RAM it can actually use because I always have enough RAM to handle what it is using. I've found that restarting the client solves the problem.
