Lag spikes, then crash


Recommended Posts


When i play big dig singleplayer, after about 5 minutes I'm starting to have small lags which are getting bigger and bigger and are happening more frequently and then the game crashes - no crash report, nothing. It sometimes also happens earlier when i try to search something in NEI. I don't have any large system working there, only basic machines like macerator, generator, quarry...(i'm using high amount of pipes added by AdditionalPipes) I was messing around with allocated memory and it never helped (5GB,6GB,7GB,8GB,9GB...) I am using Sphax texture pack x256 + big dig addon x128

My system specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.130318-1533)

Language: Czech (Regional Setting: Czech)

Processor: IntelĀ® Core i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.4GHz

Memory: 16384MB RAM

Available OS Memory: 16364MB RAM

Page File: 3637MB used, 29089MB available

Windows Dir: C:\Windows

DirectX Version: DirectX 11

DX Setup Parameters: Not found

User DPI Setting: Using System DPI

System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)

DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled

DxDiag Version: 6.01.7601.17514 64bit Unicode

When i run big dig it uses about 20% of processor, but then it starts growing and when big dig is about to crash it uses about 80% which is insane considering to which proccesor i'm using. Although memory usage stays about the same during whole process.

I also have added some mods to big dig if it might be the problem:

Coremod - denLib-2.1.4

Mods - AssemblyLine_v0.2.4.62







Balkon's weapon mods






I'm using Java Version 7 Update 21 (build 1.7.0_21-b11) and I don't have more versions installed.

  1. Uninstall Java 732bit
  2. Reboot
  3. Install Java7 64bit
  4. Start Launcher
  5. Allocate "enough" (atleast 2Gb) memory (from the cogwheel in the right upper corner of the Launcher)

You also might consider installing Optifine into your %appdata%\.technic\bigdig\bin\minecraft.jar file. Please do not ask how, use google instead.
