Fix Escape from Tarkov MissingFieldException Error | Running Out of Memory
Prior to getting the Escape from Tarkov MissingFieldException error, the game starts to consume large amounts of RAM and no matter the amount of RAM you have on your system the game would result in crashing with message stating running out of memory/RAM.
If you have been playing constantly through several raids and have not rebooted the game, the problems can arise. Some users were able to fix the issue by providing admin permission to the game and restarting the game after few raids. Close the game > right-click on the desktop shortcut of the game > Properties > Compatibility tab > Run this program as an administrator > Save the changes and exit. Try to play the game.
After providing the game with admin permission, hopefully, you should see improvement in the RAM consumption and the game will stutter less with better FPS.
If the crash and error is resolved, but the RAM and game performance is still low, tune down the game settings to the lowest especially the High Quality Colour settings. Make the following changes and restart the game:
- Lower Object Load Quality and Set to 2.5 or lower.
- Turn off HBAO
- Turn off SSR and Anisotropic Filtering
- Turn off Post FX
- Set Resampling to x1
- Lower Sharpness
Try to launch the game with a clean boot and you should be able to have more RAM at your disposal. Here are the steps you can follow.
- Press Windows Key + R and type msconfig, hit Enter
- Go to the Services tab
- Check Hide all Microsoft services
- Now, click Disable all
- Go to the Startup tab and click on Open Task Manager
- Disable one task at a time and restart the system.
- Try launching the game and the Escape from Tarkov RAM problem should improve.
If the issue still continues, you may have to clear the game cache and reinstall the game from scratch. Uninstall the game and the launcher. Then, press Windows Key + I and type %appdata%, Delete the folder named Battlestate Games. Now, install everything from scratch, the launcher and the game. This would hopefully, fix the Escape from Tarkov RAM eating and MissingFieldException Error.
