Default *serious* memory leaks using software rendering - 01-11-2010, 08:01 AM


see the picture, for those who cant see it, it shows the task manager on the "performance" tab that shows an increasing amount of memory usage, at a certain point alice crashes whiteout warning

im using alice 2.2, using whit the "force software rendering" box checked (the world does not load otherwise.... though it does on school computers running XP)
the .exe runs whit visual themes disabled, because i felt like checking that box, i dont think it matters.

the world itself is about 20 MB large... made on various school computers, all running alice 2.2

any thoughts on this issue? leaking 4MB every second ain't nice..

my specs:
win 7 ultimate 64 bit
4 gb of ram
2.4 ghz c2d (mobile variant)
ati 4570 graphics card

1. The picture does not show

2.Do fix this problem in 1 way, is make many objects that you do not see showing = false, it willl save your computer from crashing. It lowers down the memory usage

Thanks for reporting. Hopefully, Alice 3.0 will be free of this bug.

Alice 3 is much better at handling resources.

In the meantime you could be using Mama, which is an improved version of Alice2.2, with memory leak problems solved: http://en.eytam.com/mama.

FALSE!!!!! Right click on your Alice application and click properties. Click the compatibility tab. check "run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select windows xp. Simple as that! Sheesh! That's what Windows is made for. I don't see why people don't know about it.,

meirs is a walking advertisement! These are the ALICE forums! Mama isn't the solution to everything. I used it, and it ran REALLY slow!
