    I tried to replicate this and (even went shopping lol) I got 100, 000+ which is very odd for my system.

    What I did:

    1. Start UT3
    2. Torlan Short, 32 players, max game settings (HOLY S**T)
    3. Tabbed out at approx. 1, 000 handles, went to buy some things (approximately 30 minutes later), came home to 100, 000

    I had no issues, though. My machine can take at least 10 times the load, so I didn't experience any drag or something like that. I am not aware if these are normal results for a game that long and with those settings, but yet - here they stand.

    The next thing to do is just play for 30 mins, tab out and see the number of handles. :3
    The next thing after that: some competent person to tell us what's going on. :>
    Yeah, I left it for a long time and my handles were in the 400,000+ when the drag occurred. Every day I tab out and don't see a problem even after a couple of hours ( I have 6GB ram). But it is something epic will want to fix ..if ever they have another release.

    Did you tab out (Press ALT + TAB and not close UT3) on Ut3 and check if the handles were increasing ..

    not likely

    s7urm, I tabbed out and went shopping and returned ot see it have increased to 400K+ and when I tried to play the game it was dragging.. that is whne I looked at the task manager to find the cause.

    Hi voidy,

    I turned added handles to my view and conducted a test. While minimized the game does rapidly increase the handles (at some point 100 per tick), though I only managed to get 8000+ across 2 games.

    Hardware:

    CPU AMD FX8120 8-core 3.1 GHz
    8GB RAM, Video: ATI HD6850 2GB RAM
    Latest ATI drivers.

It is not normal for a application/process to have its handles increase continuously. If that is occurring - it is an indication that either there is a handle leak (memory leak) in the application and at some point windows OS will not longer be able to provide anymore memory/handles to the application and the application will become unstable or crash. To look at the handles(think of it as windows memory), bring up windows task manager and select View/Columns from the menu. Switch to the process tab and look for ut3.exe and observe the handles column. Most of the application handles will remain the same when idle. Ut3.exe when tabbed out increases it handles very fast (A handle leak is a type of software bug that occurs when a computer program asks for a handle to a resource but does not free the handle when it is no longer used.)

    Before I read this I tried looking at the handles but could not figure out how to view how many were running. Could you provide a screen shot?

    Have you tested your hardware? Memory to be more specific

I would consider this a resource leak somewhere .. Anyone else experience the same?

    THe handle increase is only seen when the application is tabbed out - so it may not be that serious.
    I don't understand what or how "Handles" effects the game.. is it suppose to have that many? is it not?
