Cant connect to any servers..

Question

When I try connect to any server, I get this error:

 

"VM_Create on cgame failed"

 

If I try /connect again, then I get the same error, but without the error window.. Just text where the in-game dialogue box should be..

 

Anyone ever had this? I haven't changed anything, it just happened.. Fine last night, now today it's broken..

 

Any help is appreciated!

1) Right-click on the My Computer icon and select Properties.

2) Click on the Performance tab and click the Virtual Memory button.

 

3) Select Let me specify my own virtual memory settings and increase it or select System managed size.

yes it is indeed either a pk3 or .dll problem according a forum topic that came up in a google search

windows, linux?

which mod? do you have multiple pk3s (different versions) of the same mod?

Maybe your game is loading the wrong mod.

 

In that case you can delete the dlls (cgame and ui, qagame if you have it, but that's the server part), and maybe also extract them from the pk3 of the mod (the latest version pk3)

I only have one version of every mod since I only play FA servers ever..

 

Deleting hunkusage fixed it.. I didn't realise it was a Memory issue.. Odd considering I have hunkmegs set to 256 and I have tonnes of RAM free... But meh :) it's fixed now anyway!

 

I guess for future reference for anyone else, deleting hunkusage.dat (from etmain) and setting com_hunkmegs to a lower setting, should solve this problem.

 

Thanks for all input!

Right click 'Computer' in the start menu, click properties.

 

From there, click on 'Advanced System Settings' in the sidebar.

 

Click on the 'Settings' button in the performance area of the Advanced tab.

 

Go to the 'Advanced' tab and click 'Change...' to increase your virtual memory :) Mine's set to 8871MB.

It's virtual memory, nothing to do with your ram really.. it's 'fake ram' I guess.. I only have 3GB ram but 8GB of virtual memory :P
