Random Crashes while playing (out of memory in 32-bit)

While playing for around 1 hour the game crashes just shuts off, I have the latest version and only 10 hearthlings cannot have anymore than that as the game lags, I have auto save function ticked but for some reason when the game crashes it wipes/deletes the auto save…?

ive had the game ‘crash’ as well when tryig to save, for me at least it saves

my game saves manually, but when it crashes you have to reload the manual save which is half hour behind, strange how the autosave disappears when the game crashes, sometimes I know when its going to crash or mess up because manual save doesn’t save the saving text just flashes on screen

Hey there @b19dom, sorry to hear about the crashes. The next time your game crashes, would you mind uploading your stonehearth.log here to the discourse so @Albert and TR can take a look.

Also, just to be clear, when you say “just shuts off,” you mean that the game windows closes with no warning or indication, and you are sent straight to your desktop without an error message?

yes that is correct @jomaxro no warning just straight to desktop

where is the log file located lol the game crashed on me before I wrote on here and I haven’t been back on as I am getting annoyed with it happening

Assuming you installed the game through steam, the log file should be located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth.

Note, depending on how long you were playing before the crash, your log file might be too big to upload directly. In that case, please save your file to a cloud storage site like Dropbox or Google Drive and post the sharing link here.

this is the last few logs in the stonehearth.txt before the game shut off

Hey there @b19dom, any way for you to upload the entire file? I can see the end of an error stack trace on your screen, and other parts of the log (like the start) are important for the devs when troubleshooting. Let me know if you need any further help getting your log uploaded.

@b19dom - You’re running out of memory because Stonehearth is running as a 32-bit process. Did you disable 64-bit because it was failing? You can enable 64 bit on the Settings->System menu.

I started running it on 32-bit after reading it can help with the lagging I have now disabled it and gone back to 64-bit,
My System is a Laptop with
Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.2GHz
8GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Memory
NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M

ran a lot better on 64-bit been playing for a couple of hours with no crashing or save problems then it froze my laptop up and I had to hard reset the laptop

That sounds like a memory leak or something :cold_sweat:
How many hearthlings did you have?
Paging @Albert for comments…

As Relyss suspected it’s probably a memory leak, although it shouldn’t crash the laptop. Saving and loading periodically will restore the leaked memory.
