[Bug Report] Page file memory leak in "Load state"
# PCSX2 version: Official Beta 0.9.7 r3113
# CPU options: All default for EE and VUs
# Plugins used: Doesn't seem to matter...
# Description: After every 'Load State', the page file increases by about 35MB, and after many consecutive loads, the page file eventually runs out of memory and the following allocation error occurs (see screenshot). The problem doesn't appear to be plugin or game specific. This problem isn't present in v0.9.6. I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3.

#2 many times did you load state? Tongue OK try replicating this using GSdx DX9 software renderer

Ok, this is most likely a bug on one of the plugins.
Could you post your complete configuration please?
Probably got the same problem. After n-time load the emu freezes. Heres my log (the file is kinda big I took the whole emulog after the crash, probably the last lines are only important and the specs at the beginning) Hope I helped.

Yes looks like the same bug, but we really can't accept this data while you're using modified / hacked plugins like this:

Umm its the normal rev I think 1406 - the last one to not have the problem with seeing throught walls in that particular game - SMT "Nocturne" ( I just renamed it in case i wanted to play something else on the normal official revision Smile ) Ill try to get You a crash log on the normal plugin Smile
Log using GSdx 3068 0.1.16 with Direct3D9 (Software) renderer.

Created by starting a game, State Save once, then State Loading about 54 times...

None. Not using SuperVU recompiler so VU Clip Flag Hack isn't needed.


While playing Persona 3 FES (NTSC) I make extensive use of save states and removal of frame limiting as a fast forward measure.

An annoying problem often occurs though. After extensive numbers of save state loadings, eventually I come across an error that prevents me loading and saving any more states until PCSX2 is restarted.

The error given off is the following

(pxInvokeActionEvent) Out-of-memory on SafeArray block re-allocation.
Old size: 11534336 bytes, New size: 12582912 bytes.(VM_UnzipFromDisk)

Attempting to create new save states after this error results in the console saying save state creation was successful, then throwing out an error. The save state creation actually failed as they can not be loaded on subsequent restarts of PCSX2.

Attempting to load save states results in gameplay "stalling" - The System > Suspend and System > Resume commands can be used to continue gameplay from the point of error with no obvious side effects.

That is until Suspend > Resume is repeated numerous times after multiple attempts to load save states. A different error is generated upon doing this which leads to a hard program crash accompanied by Windows stating the program is non-responsive on the next Suspend > Resume attempt.

That error is as follows.

(pxInvokeActionEvent) Out of Memory(VM_UnzipFromDisk)

The complete log of PCSX2 program operation from start to error is also attached compressed with the "RAR" format. The uncompressed text file (log.txt) is over 200kb big and cannot be attached.

All errors begin with "(pxInvokeActionEvent)". The error log is a complete log of the entire duration of a single instance of PCSX2 playing only Persona 3 FES.

The first 230kb of the log probably aren't much use other than counting how many times I saved and loaded states. The last 20kb are where the errors start popping up.

This appears to be a similar (if not identical) issue to
