I believe it's the problem with your handset's Heap size.
A friend of mine tried running Dweller on a similar device and it
ran just fine untill he tried switching language, then it crashed
with identical error.

Hopefully Bjorn can help you more, some other user has also
reported having problems with "Out of memory" error lately so
it might be some changes in the recent version(s) that cause
Dweller to breach certain amount of memory it uses.

Btw, why use big tiles on 320x240 screen? I got the very same
resolution and hate how large tiles restrict my field of view!

I can only suggest closing down all system apps like the music
player and/or running the game after a fresh restart, maybe
this could free up some memory. If it doesn't, you're stuck with
small tiles for now.

Try to be patient and wait for Bjorn's reply.

Well, there probably isn't much to be done to solve this problem. With recent additions of more graphics the game requires more memory to be able to keep double sized graphics in memory. Does the game crash completely or does it revert semi-gracefully to normal size tiles?

Hi. When i set large tiles, then game shows stack trace, message box and continues with small tiles.

Yep, your phone doesn't have enough memory to handle the large tiles. I could possibly find ways to optimize memory usage upon switching to large tiles. Let me give it some thought...

Check the old Dweller with 8x8 unexpanded tiles, on 240x320.

Now that's some eye strain hahahaha!
