Description Dr. Sean 2014-07-15 16:08:51 UTC
The Zone memory heap is used to hold all formats of music data while it is being played. WAVE/FLAC/MP3 formats require a large amount of memory and necessitate a large Zone memory heap to be allocated when Odamex starts up. Most often, however, MIDI/MUS formats are being played and a large percentage of the Zone memory heap is unused. It would make sense to allocate memory for music on the system heap with new/delete instead, allowing Odamex to use a smaller heapsize than the default 128Mb.
