what the difference with NON-FLARED VEHICLE LIGHTS MOD? should I use both?

1 year ago

Hi. I’ve found an issue with the mod. It looks like flare.dds image file weights to much and it gives such an error in game log and crash:

00:39:02.960 : <WARNING> [resource_task] Default temporary buffer is insufficient while reading ‘/model/flare/flare.dds’ with size 178957100

00:39:03.142 : <ERROR> m_manager_pool.cpp(228): [email protected][email protected]@@[email protected]@@Z: [mem] unable to get an empty memory block…

Is it possible to reduce a weight of the flare file, or maybe there is some other solution?

Thanks for any help. The mod is really great and it would be a pity to remove it.

Can I use this mod together with Realistic Graphics Mod, Promods Support Addon, and Darker Nights Addon?
