I am running XP as stated. I have increased my page file to 8 gigs.
I do find that if I turn the computer off for a while and take a break. The memory empties. My OOM came WITHOUT me doing 1 invasion. However I had played for many hours on a HUGE map with all opponents and all minor races on. I had a similar problem with GC1 . But I could not resolve it so I shelved the game. The music still stutters until it steadies itself. I'm not running any other programs while playing. The biggest factor for me seems to be number of turns taken.
Can you guys come up with a patch that will keep the memory freed up ?? (to stardock)
Thanks to all and if you have any further suggestions please feel free......
