Out of memory error
I recently subscribed to Unreal Engine 4, downloaded everything on the marketplace, couldn't wait to get started. I started by looking at the Elemental demo, the project opened fine, however when I hit play, the first time the editor just closed. No error, no nothing, just closed. Tried again and it started to play however I got an out of memory error.
The only time I've gotten an out of memory error recently was with Watch Dogs and I fixed that by lowering texture quality. I tried lowering all the settings in the editor from Epic, to High, all the way down to Low, and still get the out of memory error. Any idea what's going on?
I'm running Unreal Engine 4.2 and my machine specs are below: Windows 8.1 64 Bit Intel i5 3570k @ 4.2GHz 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz Nvidia GTX 780 Ti 3GB 1080p monitor
Since this also happened with Watch Dogs I believe it could be a system issue. I have found a few websites with possible solutions.

Also, there seems to be an issue with a memory leak while playing a game in a different resolution than your desktop is set for in Windows 8.1. I would check that first, it seems to be the most simple solution. The site says that Microsoft is aware of the issue and are working on a patch. Before you run the Elemental Demo, go to Edit > Editor Preferences > Play > Play in Standalone Game and change the resolution to match what your monitor is set for. When you hit Play, make sure to hit Play in Standalone Game.
I hope this helps, TJ
