How To: FAKEFACTORY´s Cinematic Mod v7.0 for 32 Bit OS

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Recently released is the FAKEFACTORY´s Cinematic Mod v7.0 for HL2 + EP1 & EP2. It's amazing and trying it I can say you should not be without it.

http://halflife2.filefront.com/file/..._Part_16;88111

--------------

In the "readme" file we see this...

Quote:
This mod was developed and tested on 64 Bit Windows. It is NOT supported on 32 Bit Windows, because of the limited Userspace with 32 Bit systems. You can try it on 32 Bit, but prepare for crashes.

On some 32 Bit systems it is possible to overcome this limitation with some boot.ini switches for raising the userspace limit. I'm not going into detail here, because those tweaks are dangerous and should only be
done by people, who are knowing exactly what they do.

ADDENTUM FOR VERSION 7:

V7 of this mod uses much more Hires textures than the previous versions. This means: The engine has to cache a peak-value of >2GB texturedata at runtime. It's almost impossible to play this mod crash-free on 32 Bit systems without lowering the graphics settings.
The reason for this is because the game supposedly uses over 2GB RAM at times. That is bad for 32 Bit because they way the kernel is designed no single program can use more than 2GB RAM at a time. This means crashes to you.

STOP AND EXIT NOW IF EVEN ONE OF THESE THINGS DO NOT APPLY TO YOU

1) You have a 32 Bit OS (Duh)

1) You want to run this mod at full settings, a high resolution with AA/AF.
(Yes you need a powerfull computer, the mod looks like utter crap and there is no point at lower settings)

2) You have 3 GB RAM and a powerful video card with 512MB + VRAM (You can have more than 3GB but it's useless as 32 Bit doesen't correctly use more than 3.2 GB, if your card has low VRAM prepare for stuttering)

If you meet these 3 things keep reading.

-----------------

Now if you were to run the mod and at a point when the mod is using more than 2GB RAM you will get instant crashes. I have confirmed that more than 2GB is used at times.

Fortunately there is a solution to increase the amount of virtual memory space allowed to programs to 3GB on a 32 Bit OS. This should solve all crashes.

It involves a simple boot settings change.

XP

Quote:
1. Right-click My Computer. Click Properties.

2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.

3. On the Advanced tab, under Startup and Recovery, click Settings.

4. In the Startup and Recovery dialog box, under System startup, click Edit.
The Windows boot.ini file will be opened in Notepad.

5. Save a renamed copy of your boot.ini file somewhere on your computer
in case you need to revert back to your original version of the file. Note: Boot.ini files may be different from computer to computer.

6. Highlight the following line in the boot.ini file:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\\WINDOWS="Micr osoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect


7. Copy (Ctrl-C) and paste (Ctrl-V) the line just below the original. Note: Your exact text string may be different from the text string in this document. So be sure to copy the text string from your boot.ini file, not the text string shown here.

8. Modify the copied line to include “ /3GBâ€, as shown in the example below. Note: Do not overwrite any existing lines.

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\\WINDOWS="Micr osoft Windows XP Professional 3GB" /3GB /fastdetect


9. Save the boot.ini file and close Notepad.

10. Click OK to close each dialog box.

11. Reboot your computer
.
12. During startup, select the 3GB option. If you do not select the 3GB option, the system will default to the 2GB total memory setting.
Vista

1. Run cmd.exe

Heres a good article about this topic.

2.5gb and up

sadly yes.

but the newer games coming out use 3gbs and up which is why vista 32 bit thought ahead and allowed 3.3gbs max.

aslo can i set that thing for more then 3gbs?

you can play it with 2gbs but it lagged like hell for me




AMAZING WITH YOUR THING i can now play it with 2gbs only with no LAG

if you dont want stuttering your going to want 2.5+ GB

but if only have 2GB there is not need for this workaround as you cant use more than 2GB anyway

and you cant do more than 3GB because 32 bit cant use more than 3.2 GB properly

if you have more than 2GB set it to your maximum amount of ram so when it does use more than 2GB the game allocates it without a crash

or you could just buy a 64 Bit os.....

its the mod

at first i thought there was no difference by looking @ pix

but let me tell you

the mod is MILES better amazing

no screenshot does it justice, it looks like one of the best graphical games of the year now

unlocked means you own the game on your steam account and can play it and is not "pre-loaded" meaning the files are on the pc but your steam does not have the game

and yes you need all of the HL2 series installed
