    Memory allocation error

    Hey everyone

    So ive been playing this game for years, had a break of a few months and came back to playing again today.

    But a few months into a new season, my game stops and crashes with the message, "Unable to allocate requested memory". In the same message im prompted to free up more diskspace.
    I have 31GB free, which isnt loads but i thought is MORE than enough for CM. Can anyone help in any way?

    Many thanks

    Martyn.

    Ok, for anyone that comes across this and is able to help in any way; thought id post what ive tried. Was linked a tutorial (can see above) which didnt work. Tried reinstalling several times, using several discs. Tried ensuring compatibility options. None have worked. If anyone can help at all, would be eternally grateful...

    prolly just used too many leagues mate. usually a different error pops up though when you do it.

    try using 6 or 7 and see if it still pops up.

    Ye, trying with a few less now. Thing is, this is a new pc built for FAR more intensive games, and ive played with these leagues plenty in the past. It doesnt make any sense to me :s

    i have a similar problem when playing without the tapani patch. my laptop is getting really warm and the battery doesnt last very long. i believe the original game was only built for one core etc.

    but playing with the tapani patch, it's all smooth and i can easily play for 3 hours on battery.

    does it happen when you only select 5 or 6 leagues?

    I imagine it still would, but would just take longer for the message to appear, as this is what happened when i selected 5-6 less leagues.

    i seriously think there is something wrong with your computer settings.

    i even looked in the old forum at the other server and there wasn't that problem.

    maybe something you set up like your pc only giving out that much internal memory for a programme etc.
