    Sanoba Witch failed allocating memory for bitmaps

    To be fair, a lot of western code explodes in the same hilarious ways when suddenly exposed to Non-ASCII inputs (what do you mean, other characters?), especially older stuff. But Visual Novels tend to be especially badly written in a variety of ways. I wasn't familiar with Kirikiri, but it appears to be written in C++, with this looking like a run of the mill memory leak issue it's not actually that surprising, just the fact that no one can fix it. I almost want to take a look myself, but then I also really don't. That would lead too far down the rabbit hole.

    Sanoba Witch failed allocating memory for bitmaps

    Well, immersion is one thing, but the first time this happened I was booted to the desktop and hadn't yet saved. Granted, it only took a few minutes of skipping to get back to where I was and I have been paranoid about saving since then, but maybe you need to put a notice somewhere if you can't fix the issue. What kind of hacky low level stuff is this engine written in anyway if no one can track down a known bug like this. As a software engineer myself this makes me slightly anxious. I'm not surprised though, I've seen a ton of VNs that seem to be coded terribly.

    Sanoba Witch failed allocating memory for bitmaps

    Now that you say that, I was wondering why the game closed the first time this happened to me. That was probably the prompt that only had the Ok button, but it hasn't happened since and I did not get a good look because I hit enter reflexively. I've only had the yes/no one since.
  4. I've been playing Sanoba Witch and this error has repeatedly come up (see attached screenshot). Clicking yes, sometimes multiple times in sequence, seems to allow me to continue. I've positioned the Taskmanager window in the screenshot so you can see how much memory the application is using, but it doesn't look critical to me. I've purchased the game from the NekoNyan shop and used the installer. I'm playing on a fully updated Windows 10 that is always set to japanese locale (for other VNs). I'm mentioning this just in case, it has never been an issue. There is no Anti-Virus etc. installed, which means Windows Defender is running. Since I can continue it's not critical, but it does seem like there is something seriously wrong. Please let me know if you need any additional infos from me.
