Quick Overview

As a Stellaris command, memtest is primarily utilized by developers and modders in order to reveal or diagnose potential memory leaks issues within the game's functions.

A memory leak happens when a software program uses memory but doesn't return it back to the system's available resources.

Therefore, memtest helps in troubleshooting and maintaining the performance and integrity of the game.

How to Open the Command Console

In Stellaris, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
