AFCAD2 bgl = memory leak??

Recommended Posts

I recall reading on these forums about how if you have a .bgl file the addon scenery directory and the bgl does no have textures (or if there is a 'texture' subdirectory that is empty, this will cause a memory leak?All of my AF2 .bgl files are in the scenery sub dir WITH a texture sub dir that is empty - is this a concern??

I think you will find Mike that the problem was with landlass files and not AFCAD2 files.IIRC if you use landclass scenery and add an empty texture folder it can/will cause problems. The Landclass BGL just goes into a scenery folder, no assoiciated texture folder reqired.Do a search for 'landclass' just to make sure.HTH

Well - perhaps you have seen a problem like this:Working with AFCAD2 and FS9 open to see planeposition etc. I find that FS9 after a while (10-15-20 min) runs out of memory and closes down. I have 1GB ram so I am a bit surprised over this. Any ideas?Torben AndersenDenmark
