Just curious Moosetek, will setting my virtual memory up like that have any ill effects, or is there anything I will have to watch out for in the future? Will this fry my computer in any way?
Edit: Dumb question. Just read up on swap files. Interesting stuff! Seems the only times I learn about computers is when I'm trying to get a game to work lol
It was already set to 3152 or something like that, but I turned it up anyways. I suppose I'm just going to have to tone it down on the game size and graphics etc.
Apparently I can create a swap file for a different drive, even removable drives. But I suppose it doesn't matter if all the game can use is 2GBs.
Thank you all so much for the help! This is great. I won't have any time to test these changes in the next week or so, as I'm heading down to Oregon and Washington for my 1 year wedding anniversary, but when I am able to get on and play for a while, I will let you all know how things go.
One other thing: would it help if I turned autosave off and only saved in the middle of turns, when the game isn't trying to load other stuff? I notice a lot of the time, when my research is complete, at the beginning of the turn, it will prompt me to choose a new research topic, and it will also autosave, and that's when it freezes most of the time. So I assume that if I wait for everything to happen in a turn, and then save, the game will be using less memory at this time, and the save should work. Is my logic flawed?
