Video memory out of memory due to too many textures.


  • Does anyone know how to clear the video card of textures ?

    I keep creating a new one with the updated graphics and eventually the video card runs out of memory.

    I thought at first it was my pc memory but I delete any memory usage on the pc after things are used.

  • You should release all references to a Direct3D resource if you no longer need it, or indeed you will eventually exhaust VRAM.

  • I was continuously creating textures which were sent to the video card.

    After about 30 seconds the video card got full and gave an out of memory error.

    So I have just updated the texture on the video card instead of creating a new one each time.
