Hi all, I am currently trying to figure out why Bigbox is eating all of my memory. I originally started with only 4 gigs of ram in the machine as i didnt think it would need much more than that but soon added another 4 gigs when windows kept showing "low system memory" notifications. If i leave bigbox open, it will slowly eat all the ram in the machine, usually after 3 hours. My original assumption was that with attract mode enabled, it would display the pictures for every game it stopped on and continue doing this, thus slowly eating up the memory as more and more images get loaded into memory. To this end i attempted to lower the quality of the images to lowest in the Bigbox settings but still run out of memory. I currently have in the realm of 4000 games running off of a Pentium G3258, 8gb ram, 128gb SSD (windows install, Launchbox is also installed here), and a 2.5TB HDD (data drive, roms are all stored here.) I have not yet tried lowering the number of roms in my library to see if that helps at all but am probably about to. Researching this however, i see a couple others with significantly larger library's than i running off of 4gb ram still. Anyone else having similar issues or is this limited to only myself? Thanks, Strwrsteve
