Crash to desktop on saving
« on: January 16, 2018, 02:47:11 AM »

Hello there.

So Im trying to run Nexerelin with a few said "its compotible" mods, the full list is:

Dynasector 1.4.2
LazyLib 2.2
Nexerelin 0.8.3b
Ship/Weapon Pack 1.5.0
Underwolrd 1.2.0
ZZ Graphicslib 1.2.1


And getting crash on saving just about everytime (tried lets say 10 times, not sure). I've tried to allocate up to 5Gb memory ad on crash the java proocess takes like 2-2.5 usually. Log contains following information:

1412375 [Thread-17] INFO  com.fs.starfarer.campaign.save.CampaignGameManager  - Saving progress: 0.0

Every time like this.

The thing which is help is to turn off Ship/Weapon Pack 1.5.0 - played nearly 15 hours with zero crashes, even with some factions added.

The also intresting thing is that solo Ship/Weapon Pack 1.5.0 doesnt crash atleast in 10 minutes test, while with added "Black Rock Drive Yards" it did.


Im running on AMD Athlon X4 645 8GB RAM, GTX460. Am I really need more for such mod list?

While it's probably not the issue, 8GB of system memory is quite low; but since you're using so few mods you don't need to allocate as much RAM to Java anyway (2-2.5GB should be enough).

The actual problem is his VRAM; if you have a lot of faction mods - especially with GraphicsLib mixed in - you can eat up a lot of that video card memory for texture storage.  The configuration you listed sucks up ~900 MB of VRAM, which is basically your entire buffer.  Add Windows into the mix (which can use several hundred by itself) and you're past your limit.
