    That's a big map and it requires a little more ram to load i guess, how much ram memory do you have?

    I just got this error too; it said to report it and since this thread is already here, add me too the list

    I have 4GB of system RAM and 4GB of video RAM (NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 ) so I don't think it's a memory issue.

    It's also a very recent issue -- i just loaded up the previous practice game, so it was running before.

    EDIT: By the way, here's the full text of the message verbatim:
    Code:
    ** Z_Malloc: failed on allocation of 4194328 bytes from the main zone

    EDIT 2: checking back in, and just found the sticky on this topic: http://www.quakelive.com/forum/showt...ht-in-practice

    However, the seta com_hunkMegs "96" fix doesn't work (it's already part of my autoexec).

    And for the record, this is a very minor annoyance. I like to practice that map because of the large open spaces, but relative to other issues, it's minor.
