For some reason the graphics settings menu says I'm at 750% video memory usage even though I'm running a 3gb gtx 1060. I'm guessing this isn't a glitch and shouldn't be a problem?

That doesn't sound right.

Your 1060 should be easily enough to run the game with high settings without maxing memory usage.

750% usage is weird. Maybe a glitch


I'm presuming that once started, the game runs well?

I know my old AMD HD7970 was also 3Gb and never did do more then 50%.
Maybe he is running 8k, Disable DSR in the nVidia control panel, global settings.

Just in case, are you shure you run the 1060 and not a onboard CPU video chip?

Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.

Puzzled here, too. New user. Video memory 300+%. Selecting Update, OK, from start window causes program to exit.

Alienware 17 R3
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M with 3GB GDDR5
16GB Dual Channel DDR4 at 2133MHz (8GBx2)
Windows 10 Pro x64, 16 GB pagefile


Program runs, but not sure if I can update. Also dunno if the video memory number is a problem, or if it is a program glitch.


I see the reference to DSR, but I don't see that setting in my control panel app.


edit: Ahah! I /intended/ to run on the NVIDIA and 2nd monitor, but ROF does not permit unless I reconfigure my systems, which is OK if I want to then reboot to restore Windows to work correctly...a post-swap glitch in Windows. That might mean I am running on the Intel chip on the laptop, and I don't know how it manages its memory, shared w main or on board.


I'll look into this further, but it really would be nice to put RoF on any display we want.

Keywords: Running on 2nd display, using graphics card, ROF video memory complaint.
I still cannot run easily on the 2nd monitor. There are steps that I can take to run there, but they involve closing all my apps, OR rebooting when I am done. Documented in another thread.
I /can/ apparently run on the NVIDIA card, which is usually dedicated to the 2nd display. I marked both Startup and ROF_UE to run using the NVIDIA card, and I then registered those programs with the NVIDIA control panel app. The result is that NVIDIA seems to indicate that ROF is using the card as it runs on the laptop, not on the 2nd display. I do not see a performance hit. Startup no longer complains about too little memory; in fact, it now reports that I am using less than half of available graphics RAM.

The upside is that I can simply run ROF for a few minutes when I get the time. The downside is that it then is not running on a larger display. Another post suggested that I might be able to run on both displays at the same time, for a larger (wider) view, but I have not yer discovered how to do that.
