Problem with loading bitmaps into Android Application

I am designing an Android game, and as the games go, they contain lots of bitmaps.

Mine is not exception and I am loading them via BitmapFactory by the following instruction:

bitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(context.getResources().openRawResource(imageFileIDs[IndexOfBitmapHere]));

Everything goes great, until certain amount of calls to the above instruction - then the app keels over with the Out Of Memory message.

Thing is, that after uploading let say 40 bitmaps of the same size, I have still 70% of Memory Free.

Then I upload just one more additional bitmap of the same size, which should take me comfortably to some 69% and instead all goes bang - OOM !!!

The garbage collector suddenly reports it has only 3-2-1% of memory left, then OOM crash. wacko.png

There is obviously some bug in Android (I am running this on 3.0) and I cannot figure out what it is.

I have tried just about everything and now I am stuck with this annoying issue already 2 weeks.

Does anybody know what causes it and what is the way around ?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Android applications are limited to 16MB/24MB of RAM.


Obviously you weren't reading my question properly. There is 48MB memory btw in Android 3.0, and some 70% are still free before it all goes balls up!

What about this?


Yeah, I also found that few days ago. That does not show how to solve the problem, only shows how to prevent OOM by not loading the bitmap. What kind of lame solution is that?

Are you using LogCat to track the exact nature of the exception and get the stack trace? (It's sometimes not the easiest thing to read but with the latest ADT for Eclipse it is much easier to filter).

When I was seeing our OOM exception LogCat was able to tell me the resource Id i was loading and how much memory it was trying to allocate (With the stack trace it was more than enough to diagnose the cause)? It might be helpful if you post that up (when i saw we were allocating 10 megs just to draw 1 background I knew exactly what was up and resolving it was not an issue).

You are more than likely already aware that the .png's are small in their compressed state but once loaded into memory they are uncompressed bitmaps so will consume (width x height x bytesperpixel) bytes. It is also extremely easy to leak memory in Android but I don't believe this is your issue from your original post.

We had a few issues with the memory management on Android initially but once we refactored our engine to be a bit more Android friendly we were fine.

Thanks Fiallen, for trying to help me with this. You seem to know what are you talking about (as opposed to Antheus above, who just googles and stabs in the dark) rolleyes.gif

This is my first game in Android and I already thought I have a fully working game engine, which I was designing by myself from scratch, and can concentrate on the level design, when this setback with textures, which sent me right back to the square one wacko.png

Are you using LogCat to track the exact nature of the exception and get the stack trace?


Yeah, sure I use that from beginning, it's extremely useful, and now when you mentioned it, I've looked into it really in detail again, but still cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

When I was seeing our OOM exception LogCat was able to tell me the resource Id i was loading and how much memory it was trying to allocate (With the stack trace it was more than enough to diagnose the cause)?

This is where I am really getting confused. I was originally allocating well less than width x height x 4, and it still worked (see first log) and when I increased that significantly, it seemed to make no difference in amount of allocated memory. As you will see from log there is always this magical number 1925136 bytes floating around, even I increase allocation by thousandfold.

For clarity, I am posting 2 logs in following two posts.

1st log is where the game starts fine, about 50 or so textures ranging in size from 80x80 to 1280x752 load just fine and everything works great. This works whether I put to allocation ridiculously small numbers, or their thousedfold values (width * height * 4 does not work, that crashes immediately, but I put there anything from 12 * 4 to width * 4 and it did not seem to make an iota of difference - all textures loaded and game ran). As you can see though there is something strange going on there - it seems like Android is running out of puff there, having 1-2-3% of memory free, then suddenly reclaims up to 71%!

2nd log is the same situation, I did not change memory allocation, only added one more object loading one more 1280x752 texture. That is where it crashes.

I figured that I just can null some texture objects/classes and reinstate them later when I need them, but I cannot figure out how to do it either. See:

http://www.gamedev.n...__fromsearch__1

Either Android/Java is extremely difficult environment, or I am a lousy programmer biggrin.png

I am stuck with this problem now about 2 weeks and will be very grateful if you could show me the way out of this mess.

Thanks Fiallen, for trying to help me with this. You seem to know what are you talking about (as opposed to Antheus above, who just googles and stabs in the dark) rolleyes.gif


I googled because your description of the problem was simplistic at the level of someone spent last two weeks pressing the same button expecting different result.

To get an informed answer, provide a list of things that you've tried and result, along with various other attempts at the solution, links to bug reports and everything else.

While you're at it, lose the entitled and arrogant attitude. That DOES make you a lousy programmer.

This is a free for all forum, not your personal help line.
