Quote from: asaphxiix on December 27, 2017, 07:40:24 PMThanks for reporting, AP.I should consider getting some monitoring/alert system for the server.Sadly, I'm not even sure how to report this 'out of memory' error, which causes the frequent crashes, as there isn't anything in patricular that seems to be causing it, with the 12GB of the server seemingly at least 50% free at the time of the crash (when I did manage to check this, sort of). I did notice this also occurs on my home machine, the one I use to play, perhaps other players have also had this error?
Quote from: jamespetts on December 27, 2017, 09:32:47 PMI have noticed this. There are three separate issues here. Firstly, the Windows build is compiled as a 32-bit executable, meaning that it can only access 4Gb of memory. Secondly, large Simutrans-Extended maps inherently take a lot of memory. Thirdly, I suspect that there is a memory leak, causing the program to consume more memory than it needs to consume.I will look at fixing the memory leak when I get home from my Christmas holiday. Switching to a 64-bit build for Windows may take more time, and will hopefully be less urgent once the memory leak is fixed, but will probably have to be done at some point next year.
Quote from: asaphxiix on December 27, 2017, 10:05:22 PMI see. In that case, CPU usage aside, I gather that I can run at least 2 parallel games on the 12GB windows machine, am I right?

Quote from: AP on December 28, 2017, 10:04:00 AMWorth noting there are two pakset links in that first post - the one with numbers and the one which links to the nightly page. Possibly I used the wrong one...EDIT: confirmed, it was the two links that had confused me. Now I can connect.
Quote from: jamespetts on December 28, 2017, 11:45:48 AMI should note that it is possible to use a simuconf.tab setting to specify a download link to the correct pakset, which then appears on the server listing webpage.
Quote from: AP on December 28, 2017, 01:46:08 PMDoes that work even when we have multiple copies of paksets with identical version numbers (yet differing content) flying around?
