[NEWS] D2X-XL - ugly bug fixed
« on: July 29, 2011, 01:32:22 AM »
During some testing I have performed yesterday (i.e. July 28th 2011) I have noticed that a certain part of D2X-XL's renderer code tried to claim an insane amount of memory (~290 MB) from the operating system. When this failed, the program could subsequently crash when e.g. particle effects like smoke were created. Due to the huge amount of memory requested, the chance of failure was pretty high (particularly on machines with little memory or many other programs running in parallel). A new program version where this has been fixed is available now.

Whoa... something like allocating an unnecessarily-huge array?

D'oh, I missed that.  My apologies.

Aleio, when bumping an old thread, throw in a "*BUMP*" to indicate you're doing so.
