Got my first OOM in P3D V3

Recommended Posts

System Specs:

2x GTX 980ti's

6 core Ivybridge CPU running at 4.5ghz (dont remember the model off the top of my head)

16gb of ram 

2xCorsair SSD's in Raid 0

 

Flightbeam KSFOHD with the latest patch using the new F35 Lightning 2. No other addons, default traffic, with clear skies. 

 

Used Robs settings from his Heli V3 video

 

Departed 27L about 10 miles from the airport went into a vertical climb to about 18,000 ft. Stalled, flipped back around and approached the airport from the west side. 

 

When I was about 5 miles from the airport she crashed all together and the OOM message popped up. Whole flight was about 5 minutes.

 

Not the most scientific report I know, but wanted to share.

'crashed all together' doesn't say OOM.

'The OOM message popped up'... would this be the one recommending lower settings? Or some other OOM message?

 

It is possible to run out of VIDEO memory.

Did you delete your Shades folder  :Tounge:

 

Never had 2.5 installed on this PC so there was nothing to clear. I will try to duplicate it while being recorded if I can.

It was the message with the red X that says your computer ran out of memory, try different settings, etc. Same one as always. 

 

GTX 980ti's have 6gb of VRAM so extremely unlikely that was it.

That wasn't in his original post.

Is this Flightbeam addon specifically designed for Prepar3D v3? I am being serious because based on what you're saying, it sounds to me like the airport addon has a memory leak and there would be absolutely nothing that L-M could ever do to fix that.

Sounds like the Windows Out of Memory error... Only times I've seen that is with folks running a 32 bit version of Windows and too many other apps taking a piece.  But I could be wrong with how I read the error message...

Just to be clear... I didn't see anyone testing third party addons that weren't either licensed for use with v3 or given permission to install for testing because they were a beta version as well.

Yes it was. "When I was about 5 miles from the airport she crashed all together and the OOM message popped up" Yes KSFOHD was built on and for P3D and the installer is fully compatible and supported.

64 bit Windows. I have had a few before in FSX and P3D and I am confident that it was the P3D OOM, not a Windows one. 

 

Just to be clear... I didn't see anyone testing third party addons that weren't either licensed for use with v3 or given permission to install for testing because they were a beta version as well.

 

What are you talking about? From Flightbeams FB page "KSFOHD was specially optimized for P3D v3. If you have a good system, you will notice significantly better performance."

Perhaps you should try reading the OP again.

The single reason you'd maybe wanna get this new version might be about to be crushed, not even a day after release.

 

Man I love this hobby, and this forum, thanks for reporting :smile:

Yes I'd like to see you record a video of it (include your settings and show your scenery library) ... I don't doubt that OOMs can still happen, but with just one add-on FB KSFO HD seems very unlikely as I've tested that area with many more add-ons and much more complex aircraft than the F-35 included.

 

I just ran the same test with my settings and just KSFO HD (no Orbx NCA enabled) and didn't get an OOM ... over 1GB VAS free ... you have me puzzled?  

 

Cheers, Rob.
