Perhaps you know this tool named Large Address Aware from use it with other mods. However, yesterday, I tested it with my mod and.........it is awesome! it works, with this you can play a generic game created for 32bits systems (where usually they do not use more of 2gb of ram) with more of 2gb of ram.
This tool works with Windows Xp 32bits and other 32bits systems but it is a mess because you must edit somethings from the startup from the O.S. By this reason, the better O.S for this tool is a 64bits system. I played with it at Windows 7 64bits.
What happened? without the tool, playing the 50 planets map named Systems of War and 3 IA factions, the game crashes very soon and it gives many out ram memory problems and failures loading files. With the Large Address Aware the game runs smoothly and it does not give these problems, it does not crash, in fact I was playing the complete map for more of 4 hours without problems.
I took a few screenshots. The unique problem playing was the mod, I feel how I forgot edit some text and icons. But I will fix it soon. My next step would be fix it and add some new voices.
If you are thinking if I have tested this tool at EAW/FOC, the answer is yes but I´m not sure if it has some effect, it will require a lot more of test.
