unable to allocate a heapsize over 500mb?
 
This was an issue with HL2 when it released and was fixed by a steam update - Im guessing SiN episode one has the same problem??

can anyone confirm a fix is on its way for this? - thanks.

Well, Wednesday's patch will bring SE1 into parity with the latest drop from the Source Engine code. So my guess would be "yes". [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Do you know this for fact regarding the new source engine code?

and isnt Heap size in Source engine different compared to Hl2, quoting an HL2 Programmer ("Only when loading massive BSP's") now are the Sin ones, massive?

guess we would need a developer to answer that question, obviously if the heapsize will make no difference in SiN then this thread can head south pronto........

We are investigating the issue and hope to have a fix sometime in the future.

Really? I thought it was going to be included. My apologies for the misinformation, in that case.

Not necessarily. Sin's heapsize detection seems to be flawed--it only allocated a 64 MB heap for me, where HL2 uses a 256 MB heap--so setting it manually is still a necessity for some.
