couldnt get doom3 running in win98se,but have got it running in win98se really good now with an hex editor.
it also runs better in win 98,than it does in winxp,much smoother,and quicker,also the lighting is better.
but i do prefer playing the farcry game more.
i am playing with 1gig of memory in win98se,better than the 512mb i had.
what i would like to know is,is there any point in putting in 2 gig of memory in win98se,would it still work,as the 1gig of mem does?
Originally posted by Darkterritory3 i might be wrong but i heard that windows98se doesn`t use more than 256mb. after that its useless. what i heard....
i wont be trying more than 1gig mem,as far as using more than 256mem in win98se.mine is okay.
i had 512mem,went into sys.ini,and added to extra lines there,and my comp is much faster.
didnt work with one line,but when i added the other line,it did work.
it even shows i have 1024 mem now.
I'm dying to see these lines you have entered into your sys.ini file royal
Also, on what file did you use the hex editor?
Is this bogus?
benben.what do you mean by is it bogus?im not in the habit of putting bogus files on the internet,and never will be.
as for the files i put in sys.ini. for over 512mb,and under 1gig mem
type under [386enh]
in vcache make the maxfilecache
you have to do the 2 lines,else i found it wouldnt work.
my comp is a lot faster loading files and games now.
you have to use the hex editor on the doom exe nocd from gw.as long as you have bought the game,which i have.
i had this advice how to do this off the internet,you have to change 2 numbers with the hex.
it does definately work,as i have been playing doom3 for a few nights now.
by the way,what windows have you on your comp?

I second that tip, although I didn't had more than 512MB of RAM in my 98SE machine back then, it definately helps if you have at least 192MB. It simply makes use of the swap file only when there is no physical RAM available, instead of using it "in parallel" with the physical RAM. Probably one of the best tweaks of Win98 IMO.
