View Full Version : Lightmap error, please help

05-11-2002, 05:14 PM

At first, my computer has 512MB Ram,
now I am in process of making a little map , a map with no light (so far) except my sky shader that has a sun (the q3e sun thingy).

Now, whenever I run bsp_fullvis (or bsp_relight) I get this error:

Lightmaps exceed max memory (12828672 > 8388608)

Is there a way to get rid of that error? What could cause it?

Please help!

today i experienced the same problem

it took hours to compile and at the end the error message you said above

i have 396 mbram but running on win 98 se that can effectively manage about 256-296 mb ram, if i remember correctly

your pc owns 512 mb ram and i guess you're running on Win2000 or XP, correct me if i'm wront.

i ask myself if bsp-options like samplesize would cure this problem but its a little bit difficult to test, since compiling needs so long

anybody with suggestions or help?
