Starcraft 2 is crashing with "core: out of memory"

Post by tupari » Tue Nov 12, 2019 2:23 am

I'm having trouble playing the Nova campaign missions. It keeps crashing and the B :?: lizzard crash handler pops up with the message "core: out of memory". This seems to only affect the Nova missions. I can play vs the AI just fine, and I can play Wings of Liberty missions just fine. Any ideas? There is lots of stuff spewn on the console but I have no way of knowing what came from Starcraft2 itself and what came from the Blizzard launcher.

Some more info: This is a Fedora 30 system, wine version: wine-4.18 (Staging). I have plenty of memory so SC2 isn't really running out. The problem mostly happens when a game is being saved, either directly or when I hit a checkpoint. When I run 64 bit it crashes just loading the mission. When running 32 bit I can play a bit before it crashes.

I finally figured it out. I had a ulimit of 2 gig set, and apparently when SC2 saves one of those missions it uses a lot of memory. Upping my ulimit made the problem go away.
