No free edicts (Log file error)

Post by Ridings » Sat May 13, 2017 12:56 pm

Common when using mods the server may crash and you will find a line in the logs which as an example will say:

"Total edicts: 2049
Engine error: ED_Alloc: no free edicts"

That error comes when you have hit the limit of dynamic entities. For example: point_spotlight is a dynamic one where light_spot isn't (unless you name it). func_brush is also a dynamic one.
This is common when using mods. The only way to get around this is to delete the entities which are using up the slots.
