Confirmed Memory Leak in 1.1.2

When will ZoS be hotfixing 1.1.2 to patch the now-confirmed memory leak?

To be clear, ESO.exe now has a confirmed memory leak. To reproduce:

- Launch game, but stay on the Login screen (do not login)

That's it. You will then see under Windows Task Manager that ESO.exe slowly consumes more and more memory.

That's should be a pretty easy list of steps (ONE) to reproduce the memory leak that even ZoS QA team can understand.

Will this be hotfixed today?

    you know they nerfed all AoEs and hit Impulse and Broken Talons, right?

    Back on topic

    since JessicaFolsom and GinaBruno have been tagged I would like an update on when a hotfix may potentially roll out because it is unplayable and a lot of people are unhappy with the stat of the mid-level vet content, also could you update the notes in the near future to include actual changes that appear to possibly be not in there currently (similar to the 1.0.5 nerf to drop rates that didn't show up in notes until now.)

    Thank you for your efforts.
    You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

    No one is going to work on this until mid next week at the earliest - big US holiday weekend coming up; they will all be out waving their flags.

    I dont know what tools are used to develop the game, but if any kind of memory management with garbage collection is used the test is too simple to determine if a memory leak exists (and yes, it is entirely possible to leak memory even in managed memory environments). In such case the memory would only be collected when it is needed or at some predetermined time interval. To make 100% sure let it run until you run dry on memory and start HDD swapping. If that happens you have a memory leak foosho.

    No, they will address that issue in 1.2.x just like NB fixes. And it will take another 4~6 weeks. Good luck.

    Sorry this is not confirmed as it doesn't happen to everyone. I am looking at mine now and its staying at a steady 27% and has been for 15 minutes i.e. No leak.

    Confirmed does not mean "happens to everyone", they are different mental concepts.

    So, yes, this IS CONFIRMED.

    When a person i.e you just makes a post stating it is no it isn't. You haven't provided any form of evidence etc. it might be confirmed in your head but your making this on a public forum and as you haven't provided anything whatsoever so to me it is not confirmed at all.

    Since you are not experienced in the field of computer science, you should refrain from trying to refute those of us who are.

    The fact that you read the OP's reproducible case on how to see the memory leak, and it didn't occur to you that THAT is a HUGE bug, means you have 0 experience in software development, and need to stay out of the technical side of the conversation.

    Those of us with 26 years of software development are able to reproduce the memory leak, and at least 30 of us have CONFIRMED IT.

    Therefore, it is CONFIRMED, and we have REPRODUCIBLE CASES to back it up (as documented in the OP).

    Thanks for understanding.

    I work software development You haven't documented anything stop talking twoddle. post your specs and the documentation you have then please. Until then the bug is not confirmed.

    I can confirm that it happens and I was able to reproduce memory leaking in the way that OP has described in his post. Several other people have also confirmed that memory leak is there.

    My memory usage increases by roughly 1Mb/sec while the game is minimised and left on log-on screen.

    If it doesn't happen to you, then kudos to your system, but it doesn't mean that other people don't have it. BTW what was the 27% that you referred to in the earlier post?

    EDIT: While I was typing all of that my mem usage has gone up from 199 Mb to 293 with ESO being minimised and on log-on screen

    Mine got up to 2.8 Gb by the time it crashed.

    I noticed this too. If you leave the game for any period, even if not on the login screen but on the character selection screen, it does start to use more memory. I have 12GB of RAM and had to shut the game down after half an hour AFK because according to Windows 8.1 it was using too much memory and needed to be restarted.

    Unfortunately this is happening to me also. I can play some but it is a drastic leak just sitting with the launcher up.

    OMG!!! Then probably you're not very good at what you do :grinning:

    Haha, I'm wondering the type of software and the company some ppl are working at... I really hope there is nothing related to games or Bethesda/Zenimax.
