I am currently experiencing an issue where LB starts to use way too much RAM, sometimes as high as 11gb out of 16. It's only as of version 10.14 that this has been happening. Is there a way to limit the ram usage? I have to end up closing the application to run games smoothly. I have an i7 8700k with 16gb of ddr4 ram
I am using an older gaming PC I built 10+ years ago. (Intel Dual Core E7400, 4 GB Ram, 512 MB Radeon 4850). I have been running MAME with it for a while with no issues at all so I have been thinking of a front end and have decided on LB mostly on the advice of ETA Prime and his awesome YouTube channel. I installed LB and imported all 2800+ games with no major issues until I went to run my first game. I received a "Low memory must shutdown" (paraphrasing of course) error message and LB quit. I opened LB up again and it worked fine but only had a few minutes to play with it before heading to
I've noticed that launchbox ignores the RAM Cache limit setting. If I set it to 2048 MB it ignores it and climbs to around 5GB. If i set it to use 4GB ram, it still ignores the limit and ends up at about 5GB usage. I'm using 8.2 beta 6, but this problem was happening in the stable release as well, I just hadn't had time to report it.
I am new to computers (building/internals) and I chosen to dive right in headfirst building a Mame. My stepdad brought home a computer that was going to be e-wasted from his work. It only has 4GB of DDR2. Will this be ok or do I need DDR3? It also only has 2.93 GHz will this be a problem?? I would like to run games up to the early 2000s. Any help is appreciated, and thank you, this community has been great!!
