Shattered Union Problem?

    I was wondering if anyone can help me, I know there is another thread nearby about Shattered Union, but that problem has actually been sort of solved now.

    You go into msconfig's boot section and limit memory to 2048, restart and the game works even on Vista/Windows 7 x64 systems.

    What I would like to know though is knowing that solution is there a way to get the game running without going through that? Perhaps a way to limit memory ONLY to Shattered Union?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know of a way to do it, sorry. The reason there is a problem in the first place is, if I remember right (sorry, it's been a while since that thread), that Shattered Union works with the total amount of system memory, and completely freaks out if there's too much. So you need to find a way to trick the game into believing that you have less RAM installed than what you have... depending on where it looks, that might be very difficult.

    Thanks for your reply, nice to see another woman at the Geek Fourm ;)

    As for the problem, Its funny you can naively tell a program to only use one core if you have multiple cores but there is no way to make a program think/have only a certain amount of memory.

    I know. It's both funny and a bit annoying, when you stop to think about it.

    And there's quite a large number of us here actually. Stick around and say hello to everyone, and you'll get to met them. Including the admins, mods, and the malware fighting one. She's like the Xena of malware attackers. ;)
