COMI: Random out-of-memory crashes in WindowsCE version

Reported by: SF/rene1312 Owned by: SF/knakos
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Monkey Island 3


I am currently using ScummVM version 0.12.0 on my HTC Touch Pro, and I am having issues running Monkey Island 3 - The Curse of Monkey Island.

Some data: ScummVM version: 0.12.0 Language: English Version: Windows Platform: PocketPC (Windows Mobile 6.1) Phone: HTC Touch Pro

The error I received is: ERROR: (15:2001:0xA77): Out of memory while allocating 1591386

From the error message I can make up that I don't have enough free RAM to play the game, which is quite weird as this phone has over 200MB of RAM and usage is always between 40~60%.

The way wince works is not that straightforward. You may have 200MB ram but: only 64Megs can be addressed (well that may have changed in 6.1), and the top 32 are the OS. Tha leaves us with 32 MB, in which all applications run. Depending on the the device, you may have 10-20 MB available. And btw, the error is exactly what is says, out of memory. I suggest closing application you're not using temporarily and trying again (like keyboard helpers, etc., stuff running in the background). Thanks for the report.
