Out Of Memory Error
« on: November 18, 2017, 03:56:34 PM »
Started getting this error a few days ago, basically stating that D3 has crashed because of low memory.

Never happened before though and I have 8GB RAM (same as always). Literally nothing has changed since I installed the game, but now this is happening.

Just lost my fairly good DH to the error. Searching suggests that it can be caused by a memory leak in the 64-bit version (but i have always used 64-bit and it wont let me launch in 32). Others suggest to small a paging file, low RAm, low VRAM etc. Problem is, nothing about my system has actually  changed.

Anyone had the same error?

Nope...you might want to you a memory test on your RAM.  Also make sure your drivers are up to date.

All done, all good.

Some searching indicates that there is a memory leak with 64bit D3 with latest patch. Seems fairly well documented by players on Bnet forums. No official confirmation though. One such thread here. Everything that i've read links the problem to 2.6 and 64bit D3.

I did some fiddling and got the 32bit D3 program to run and have had no issues with it so far...

Couple days, all good now.

May not affect you guys with more RAM perhaps. I only have 8GB on this aging rig (new one in the works though).

If it does happen though, using 32bit seems to fix the issue.
