  • I was playing a flash game for the past few hours, and I noticed over time the whole game was getting super laggy, despite me allocating more RAM and CPU usage on the limiters.

    I opened the GX Control window to find this gem of an early software bug:

    After a short time (like a minute or two) it jumped straight back into the positives, but the webpage with the game got an "out of memory" error.

  • Nice try, but unfortunately imgur tells me the link is not valid. Looks like you need to try again.

  • Worked fine when I made the post. Really frustrated that an imgur link somehow died less than 24 hours after being created.

    Anyway, the image shows the RAM dial on the bottom-right, with a reading of -0.71GB, with the little bar indicating current usage going the opposite direction from the bottom (going to the right instead of to the left).

    No possible way I could effectively recreate this happening, unless I played that game for like 5 more hours. You'll just have to take my word for it. 😕

    I think it might be Flash finally showing its age with new technology. Haven't had any issues with anything else while using Opera GX.

  • Got it ... you accidentally added an extra character when you posted it. The correct URL is (just dropped the last character). Will edit your original to the correct URL.

    You did say it was a Flash-based game, I would guess the Flash plug-in was not being properly accounted for in the calculation.

  • @sgunhouse The negative ram "glitch" also shows up in and other google services...
