That's weird, it works everytime; Here's a post of mine from another thread where someone had the exact same issue:

Also, when using the "-norestrictions" parameter, the graphics menu will keep saying you're exceeding your amount of vram, except this time you'll be able to change the settings without them reverting back.
-edit- For the record, this is how it should look like (im playing GTA EFLC instead but it works pretty much the same way):
Just wanted to make sure you were doing this way...
-edit- Alternatively, you could try adding the -availablevidmem 0.5 parameter and see if your total resource ussage now says: XXXX/1500
mb, just to make sure commandlines are working. If your total vram is not exactly half by this point, then you're probably not saving the .txt into the right directory or something like that.Edited by Brainsick - 7/27/13 at 4:05pm
