Players participating in the Diablo 4 beta may experience the Out of memory error. Here you will learn what causes this error and how to fix it.
The Diablo 4 closed beta launched today. Unfortunately, Blizzard’s latest game isn’t without bugs (you can read about some of them here). One of the worst issues gamers face is the Out of memory error. If you have also experienced this, here are some possible solutions to this problem.
Diablo 4: what the Out of memory error is about
The Diablo 4 beta has a pretty big problem: it gradually takes up more and more RAM as the game progresses. At some point, the title consumes all computer resources and simply shuts down. This is a very big problem, especially when you add the long wait times for server entries.
Interestingly though, this issue mostly affects people with 32GB of RAM. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t affect players with less available memory.
Diablo 4 – how to fix Out of memory error
At this point, there is no known specific solution for the Out of Memory error. You can use both methods below. However, there is no guarantee that they will help you solve the problem.
Close all apps running in the background
The easiest way to help you is to turn off all apps that are running in the background. When you launch Diablo 4, close all programs except the game and Battle.net. This will give the title more available RAM.
Lower your graphics settings
A fairly obvious but effective method is also to reduce the quality of the displayed graphics. First, go to the C:Users”user_name”DocumentsDiablo IV folder. There you will find the LocalPrefs file. Open it and change “DisableChromaEffects” from 0 to 1.
Then enter the game and lower the graphics settings (preferably to low). This should end your memory leak problem.
