    There are too many indices (materials, sprites) on screen. So many that the index buffer is overflowing from its max value of 32768.

    You're either on a very poorly optimized map, or have a ridiculous amount of textures on screen at once whenever this occurs.

    Either way I'm almost certain this is a product of something you've done to the game yourself, or something a level designer has done on a map you're playing.
