using Tech Alpha 1.3.5
OS: Windows XP
Athlon X2 3800+ 2.01 GHz
Nvidia Geforce 7950 GT

i understand that the patch currently is only an ALPHA  so i'm not asking for it to be fixed,  just noting that im getting errors ^.^
the peak use being at 119MB catches my attention

p.s.  whats with this forum,   i cant even scroll down and select stuf f 2 seewhat i'm typing as it just jumps back to the top  :-o :?

just seem a sticky where i could post this...        where does AV stand for anyways -  .-

sorry for the "excess" topic...


Using 119MB is pretty typical and/or not hard to achieve. There's a 2048MB per process limit on normal 32-bit apps like BZ2, and using less than 6% of that is not likely to be a problem. I'd suspect graphics card drivers, because the error noted is a DirectX (graphics) error saying that it's out of memory. Can you try grabbing the latest drivers from nVidia's website?

AV stands for 'Access Violation', and in BZ2 terms is always a crash. Any BZ2 crash is usually followed by a log file or a pop-up window which tells you at what address the errors occured.

I think its something to do with reading something from the RAM, but honestly i have no idea beyond that.

BZII Expansion Pack Development Leader. Coming Soon.


ah tx,  there was 1 update the the Nvidia driver,   problem still persist though :/ (time for a new PC :P)

thx for the help none the less :P


Try 1.3 public beta 5.1, It fixes a number of AVs noted in ta5.
