It shouldn't be using more memory than 0.227 to compile as far as I'm aware. Maybe something else running is using a lot of memory?

Okay, this time I took a closer look at running applications and memory usage at compile-time and tracked the issue to something on this end. Thanks for your help in sleuthing this out.

I have a possible noob compiling question here. smile
I'm trying to compile a very specific build of MAME (handheld games only). I can set it to the specific drivers easily enough which eliminates most of what I don't want, but some drivers have things in them that aren't games (like hh_tms1k.cpp has a bunch of TI Calculators). I'd like to remove individual games from a driver during compile. Is there an easy way to do this?
Do I have to comment out parts of the driver itself (is just commenting out the game drivers lines at the end of each one enough?) or can I set up something during the compile to just ignore some? (That would be ideal so I don't have to keep altering the drivers when I pull down updates from .git...)

You can comment out the GAME() or CONS() or COMP() macros at the end of the driver for starters, but then you'll most likely wind up with errors related to symbols defined but not used, since there will now be functions that are implemented but not used by anything. So you'll probably need to follow the errors down a bit of a rabbit hole until you've commented out enough things to make the compiler happy.
