Solutions to the most common problems encountered with Outlast

July 16, 2017 at 8:25 am

1. (32 bits systems) Warning message when launching the game about “Insufficient virtual memory space! Detecting only 2 Gb of addressable memory.” (or, if ignored, the game eventually crashes)
This problem is related to exhausting the virtual memory space on 32 bits systems. A workaround is to extend the virtual memory space to 3 Gb.

On Windows Vista/7/8 (32 bits):
1) Open a command prompt with administrator privileges
– Open the Start menu
– Type cmd in the search field
– Right click on the command prompt icon and select “Run as administrator”
2) Type “bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVa 3072” (without the quotes)
3) After pressing enter, it should say something like “The operation completed successfully”.
4) Reboot your computer.
5) Try running Outlast again

2. (64 bits systems) Error 0xc000007b when launching the game.
On Steam: From the Steam library, right-click on Outlast, select “Properties”, then click on “Set launch options”, and type in “-32” (without the quotes).
Other sources: Pass in “-32” as parameter to OutlastLauncher.exe (right-click on OutlastLauncher.exe, select “Create shortcut”, right-click the shortcut and select “Properties”, then in the “Target” box append “-32” so that it reads “[…]\OutlastLauncher.exe -32”)
