VM config question

Recommended Posts

First let me say your documentation is phenomenal! very detailed and easy to follow.Thank you all for the amount of effort and cost you put into developing it. Anyone having issues should definitely read the tutorial and intro docs- it really answered a lot of my questions. 

 

One issue i am constantly dealing with is managing VM and OOM errors. i have quite a lot of the ORBX scenery and addons, and I utilize Scenery Config editor to manage them depending on what kind of flight im doing. i also use Texture Max editor to set base resolutions for the same reason. I am running some tests with various graphic settings and watching virtual mem in my process Explorer app, and i did notice you had some info regarding the use of FSUIPC to place the VM amount being utilized in the menu bar. I followed the direction:

 

 

"If you have a registered version of FSUIPC, you can place a very handy free VAS meter into the FSX window’s title bar by going to the Logging tab and then entering into one of the lines of the “Specific value checks” section the Offset 024C and Type S32. Check FS Title Bar in the “Display to” section below it. Press OK and you’ll see a readout of the free VAS in kilobytes in the title bar. FSUIPC will play a Windows “ding” sound if the sim is getting close to an OOM error. This is a good time to save your flight."

 

I did this with my usage showing 3,692,656K, the value placed on the toolbar shows "Monitor IPC:)24C (S32) = 505040"

 

Should this show the same value as process explorer? Is there something I might have missed?

Process Explorer shows VAS in use, FSUIPC displays remaining VAS. They both always add up to the 4 GB VAS limit. (About 4.200.000 when expressed in Kilobytes)
