RESOLVED Out of Memory error

Recommended Posts

Fying FSX boxed w/ all updates on a Windows10 machine. I have installed REX Sky Force 3D, Active Sky Next 2016 (for weather)., REX Textures Direct.  While flying from KTVL to KMRY, I got an out of memory error. FSX shutdown. Do all these add ons need to be running in the background OR once they have loaded into the Sim can they be shut down? Could this be the cause of the out of memory error. I have a GTX 980 gpu, 32 gigs of RAM and a decent CPU. Thank you for any help.

There are many factors that can contribute to lower than expected performance.  Please review the following suggestions:

Flight Simulator Performance Suggestions:

1.) If you using an environment texture package - reduce the resolution of each texture package until you received the desired results.

2.) If using any 3rd party aircraft of scenery - reduce the resolution until you reach the desired results.

3.) Reduce your texture resolutions within Sky Force to DXT5 and 512 x 512 then reinstall the textures.
