That's not enough ram, get 4 GB min. Large maps will crash, it's almost inevitable especially with XP's less than stellar memory manager.

 

EDIT: Ram is dirt cheap:

4GB for 16$

System ram is only part of the issue, the 512MB on the gfx card is snt helping either. I strongly suggest upgrading to a card with 1GB or more.

 

@Prj, what part of the world are you located in? were would you go to buy a new or s/h gfx card..? Also whats the makre/model of your motherboard and Powersupply..?

True but at least with GFX memory he can use the rounddown commands to fit the textures into GFX memory, but you can't make maps any smaller. :(

Well, as one last thing, if this is truly VRAM related you can try setting seta image_preload "0" which will cause the game

to load textures "on demand" rather than all at once. This can cause stalls when going from one visleaf

to the next so it's a last resort option.

I have 512 mb graphics ram, too, and it never caused any troubles on my side.

Oldjim - thanks for the hint - I've walked through the chapel a few times but never looked too closely.

 

Moonbo - got some house renovations on the go so I'm limited to how much I can play at the moment but I hope to get lost for a few hours later today.

 

Cheers,

Well, I gotta admit, this North Wing mystery has me stymied.

I think I'm gonna need a major hint here, guys - I've been pullin my hair out and I don't have that much left to play with, heh.

Hey AJ,

 

No need to go anywhere outside of the North Wing. You just need to go to this room, you should be able to unlock it with the North Wing Room Key and find a spirit gate inside to take you back to the spirit realm.

Let me know if that doesn't help :-).

My natural avarice concerning shiny things got the better of me, I wondered why

Now I know

 

I can see I'm going to have to think out of the box a bit more with this, 6/6 secrets & all loot

 

One tip for newbies, don't click if you don't want to know

Oh man...you might have a corrupted save. I can't see how that would make something unfrobbable but the only solution might be to restart :/.

Do you have a save file you can upload. Maybe SteveL can look at it so it can be fixed in the future.

Moonbo,

 

can't upload a save to here because of the size restriction (my save is almost 5mb) but it's no biggie - this is such fun to play that I'll do a restart and make the north wing my first mystery to solve instead of my 3rd, lol.

 

I'll let you know if that problem occurs again.

 

Cheers,

 

AJ

Just thought I'd give a quick update.  I have access to a much higher-end system (8 GB RAM, 2 GB RAM on the graphics card, slightly faster processor).  So, I installed Dark Mod on that system and played this mission and had no trouble making it to the second part of the mission.

 

I am based in the US and would either buy online or go to Best Buy if I decide to get more RAM for my lower-end system.  But, there's no hurry on that.

 

Just wanted to give the update.

Question: 

Spoiler
Is that normal? Or is something wrong and I have to use noclip to move through the walls to get back to the rest of the North Wing?

 
Not that I have a clue as to what I'm supposed to do to solve the mystery....

Spoiler me, please!
