    Lately the war3 mode has been crashing the hl2 client by "running out of memory"
    Not sure if the admins can fix this or recommend a fix

    How much RAM do you have in your system?

    The engine might be trying to play a specific sound, that is either from the map, or from the mod. It continues to do so, and the usage of memory will stack. I am just talking with experience, by looking in the console, with the Task Manager up, while looking at the RAM usage for hl2.exe, slowly but steadily, increases.
    I've experienced this on the Trade server, as the map plays music, which I don't hear, because hl2.exe fails to load the music, on my end.

    Muting all in-game sound would fix it?

    I've had troubles with this as well and it's good to know someone is as well and a possible fix :eek:

    Is there any way to stop this force that increases the memory? Like what gatl says.
