safe_malloc error

I need help with this memory error. I have already tried Splashdamage. mslaf, Wade, Gothix, anyone?

Here is my compile option put into Radiant and REdirected to Q3map2.5.15:

! "C:/Program Files/q3map/q3map2" -v # -game ja -fs_basepath "C:/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/" -meta -samplesize 2 $ && ! "C:/Program Files/q3map/q3map2" # -game ja -fs_basepath "C:/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/" -vis -saveprt $ && ! "C:/Program Files/q3map/q3map2" -v # -game ja -fs_basepath "C:/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/" -light -fast -samples 2 -lowmem $


Here is the logfile:

You can see my lightgrid bounds are much too high. How to I get that lower? I tried using the -lowmem switch but I'm not sure how/if it works and if I put it in the correct spot with correct spelling. I have no idea how one gets a flipped triangle??

Thanks in advance.

LIGHTGRID?? You mean I have to physically put in a lightgrid to determine it's boundary? Can I put in multiple lightgrids all over occupying player space? And can I clip that boundary to ANY size?

How many ram have you got? If you have a areal, which have a lot of complexe brushes and light, try to make that easier...

i found the error off a site
saying this


This error basically means that you’re computer has run out of memory.
This could happen at any time during the compile process, but it mainly happens during the vis or lighting stages.


Try restarting you’re computer before you compile the map to free up memory.
Don’t have any programs / applications running in the background, that you don’t need.
Install more physical memory.
Make sure you have at least 1GB of virtual memory (swap files).
Make some of you’re brushes detail.

thats the site
and where did you get radiant 1.5?

What you need is more real RAM or virtual RAM. Set virtual memory to 1/2GB and that should solve the problem. Consider removing “-samplesize 2” in bsp phase. This CAN drastically reduce FPS on your map.

also check:

mslaf, -lowmem is a switch, though I don't know how to use it unfortunately. It's supposed to reduce memory by 50%.

As far as RAM goes, I have 1 GIG of it. And my virtual is maxed out. I'll take the -samplesize out and see if that helps...post back later.

@Shadow.....Radiant 1.5?? You mean Q3map 2.5.15?

Yes, you can have multiple lightgrid brushes. They will reduce lightgrid computation process during the light stage. If you remember my fearis map, download the source map and check how I did it.
