Diablo 4 - How to Fix Run Out of Memory Error

Players participating in the Diablo 4 beta may experience the Run Out of Memory error. Here you will learn what causes this error and how to resolve it.

Diablo 4 closed beta launched today. Unfortunately, the latest Blizzard game is not without bugs (you can read about some of them here). One of the worst problems faced by players is the Run Out of Memory error. If you have also experienced it then here you will find potential solutions to this problem.

Diablo 4 - what the Run Out of Memory error is about

Diablo 4 beta suffers from a rather large problem – it gradually takes up more and more RAM as the game progresses. At some point, the title takes up all the computer's resources and it simply shuts down. This is a very big issue, especially if you add to it the long queues for server entries. Sadly, the error persists from the last beta.

Diablo 4 - how to solve the Run Out of Memory error

At this point, no 100% successful solutions to the Run Out of Memory error are known. You can use the two ways presented below to fix the problem (at least partially). However, there is no guarantee that they will help you resolve the issue.

Close all apps running in the background

The simplest way that can help is to disable all applications running in the background. When running Diablo 4 close all programs except the game itself and This will give the title more RAM available.

Lower your graphics settings

A rather obvious but effective method is also to lower the quality of the displayed graphics. First of all, go to the C:\Users\”user_name”\Documents\Diablo IV folder. There you will find the LocalPrefs file. Open it and change "DisableChromaEffects" from 0 to 1.

Then go into the game and lower the graphics settings (preferably to low). This should end your memory leak problem.
