Solutions to reduce VAS OOM FSX

Postby shamrock331 » Tue Nov 08, 2016 2:51 pm

Hi Tony,
First of all, what a mind blowing add on. As an owner of 100s of FSX addons as well as a full scale 737 sim, I can safely say this is the single most impressive add on to date. I can now get a taste of the future!

Anyhow I have been testing the PMDG737 and mine is working great, I can read everything no problem and if something isn't 100% clear you can lean forward a little.

I have been trying to complete a serious flight with the PMDG 737 (approx 30 min hop) and can not complete with out getting an out of memory crash almost completing a flight. I am trying to understand the relationship or how I can control the VAS effect. It would be fair to say after years of tweaking I have a stable system while getting the best out of graphics and OOM issues were a thing of the past for me. So I understand adding the headset is obviously greatly adding to this and I am wondering what I can control to lower the VAS usage before I start going and lowering my set graphic settings in the off chance there are some other settings I can try. It surprises me as I usually power 3 x 55" LCDs from my graphics card with out issues, I disabled all back to 1 monitor to add the head set.

System specs: i7 -4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
Ram: 16GB
Operating: Windows 7 64 bit

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as there is no need to build home cockpits with a piece of software like this! It is incredible how real it feels when using this software.

Hi mate :) I'd love to take the credit but I just help out as forum admin, Dan is the wonder man. Any reason why you're not upgrading to win 10 as a first quick question?

Hi Tony,
The reason I didnt upgrade to Windows 10 was due to FSX. The last time I had to do a set up reinstall took approx 4 days non stop installing and setting up + the endless additions for the full scale cockpit. Do you think changing to windows 10 would effect how quick the 4gb limit is hit?

If you can send my regards to Dan, what a product!

Hi mate. I know a lot of people swear by win 10. In your case I am not going to speculate if it's better but IMO it is. I would never tell someone to re-install all those addons :?

What GPU you using mate ?
