Improve performance and possibly fix memory ceiling crashes with this 4gb memory enabler

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So a nasty problem in Oblivion was that the game would crash upon reaching a certain limit on RAM (either 1.8 or 2.0GB). Same thing possibly happens with skyrim, and I saw a post in skyrim nexus that would show you how to enable skyrim to use 4gb. His guide showed a program that you would have to use, although this handy little .exe will do it all, without any hassle or work.

Simply download, run the patch on the tesv.exe (NOT THE LAUNCHER), and play. Remember to backup your original tesv.exe just in case (it automatically does it as tesv.exe.BACKUP, but still, better safe than sorry).

That program has been out for a long time now. It's best to use it for those games that aren't large address aware. From my understanding the games you mentioned should already be large address aware. In any case, that's all you do when you are on 64 bit os. If you are using a 32bit os you have to increase your virtual memory to around 2500 using (in windows command processor with admin rights):
bcdedit /set increaseuserva 2500 (reboot)
