# 1 Warning: memory was low
11-17-2012, 02:48 PM
Since the season 7. I get often this message:

"Warning: memory was low, running with reduced textures"

The only one problem. I didn't do anything in my computer.
This problem appears with season 7.
I got blur videogame with season 7 and now I get this kind of message.

Devs could you do your job nice way? Could you make your job right? Thanks in advance.

Having the same problem too.
I understand that this message is displayed because the memory was low. I can understand, that loading lower textures was necessary to prevent my game from crashing. But can you please at least make it disappear after like 5 seconds? It doesnt need to stay there and remind me constantly that I had lower memory for a split second.
I also dont understand why it triggers in loading screens. Its very annoying.

It indicates the client code has a memory leak (IE it's not freeing up blocks of video memory that it's no longer using, so when it goes to lead more textures, it doesn't see enough free usable memory - hence you see that message and degraded performance.)

Until the Devs get around to fixing it; one workaround is to completely exit out of; and then restart the SYTO client an re-log into the game (that clears/releases/resets all used video memory.)

That is BS. They need to address this issue. Not us. 4GIGS is supposed to be MORE than enough.

Not very funny PAL.

Even if RAM these days ARE cheaper. That should not be the damn problem. Note that it happened AFTER season7 went up for these guys??? Before that it was FINE!

I dont really care that it swaps to lower textures - to be honest, I dont see much difference. But what annoys me the most is the text that is displayed afterwards! It should just appear for a second to inform me, and then disappear automaticly! Its just dumb that I have to restart the entire game to get rid of it!
