    You can't fix it within FG. It's related to your local setup. If you have two different video cards, then try switching FG to use a different one and see if that removes/reduces the errors. Or, as I mentioned in my previous post, change the graphics card drivers if there are different versions available.

    That is too much for FG Your whole RAM capacity on your computer does not matter so much here; FGC is a 32-bit programme, it cannot really use more than 3.2 GB RAM. Which is why you see errors like the allocation thing

    You need to unshare a lot of your images, and 1200 tokens are way too much I believe so, also unload the token modules. Just load and share what you need

    Well spotted. I didn't notice that in the post. The earlier post said the memory use was much less - probably just after loading FG, but not in use.

    @GuardianLurker - as 2Kelrugem mentions, you're going to need to reduce your open modules/resources to get that memory use down.

    Actually, the previous quote reached similar numbers in startup, then reduced to the lower amount. I don't know why it didn't happen this time. (And yes, I agree 3.5 GB is way to freaking much. Even 670 is way too much, IMO.)

    As for the tokens, you are aware that over 2/3 of that total are just from the DMG and MM modules? Descent and Mordenkainen's basically contribute the rest.

    That's a *very* bare-bones load - no map modules, no character/token modules, and only one adventure. In my normal campaigns, I generally have at least a half-dozen map modules loaded, and over a dozen token modules. And generally three or more adventure modules as well - for me, typically Hoard of the Dragon Queen, Rise of Tiamat, and Descent Into Avernus, plus my own adventure modules based on and around those.

    And as long as I don't switch out, none of that poses a problem.

    I can certainly unload the token modules I don't use (and will), but that's not going to work for rules-module or adventure-based tokens, since the resources of those modules are bound tightly together. If, for instance, I use monsters from the MM and Mordenkainen's, I can't pull in *just* the tokens of the monsters I'm using, but all of them. That's 600+ tokens, no matter how many monsters I use from either. And while I can work around that at session time, it doesn't help while I'm writing/developing my content.

    I'm looking forward to switch to FGU, but that won't happen until the campaign is over (probably sometime this summer).
