Increase your PC's Performance!
« on: March 16, 2007, 10:22:24 PM »
While surfing the internet a while ago, I found an incredibly useful tool called Free Ram. Free Ram is a small program that puts all non essential programs onto virtual memory leaving you with more 'real' memory for applications like SC4 to use. For example, Before using Free Ram, my pc has about 230mb of ram available for SC4. After using the program, my PC has about 400mb available, Thats nearly 200mb!. It makes a huge difference to gameplay, and along with the Datpacker can completely eliminate the zoom crash bug. Try it and you will be amazed by how much better your applications run!

Heres the link...

Has anyone tried this yet.  I am always afraid to DL something before anyone else has tried it.
 ???

Is it freeware or shareware?

I think it is because the tool wipe out oldest bytes in the RAM to your Virtual Memory file, when zoom in/out it requires the old bytes, so windows has to refit the RAM from the Virtual Memory file which can be long depending of how much memory it has to move and your HD speed and fragmentation of the Virtual Memory file

I use Cacheman XP. It's not as simple as Free Ram, but I think it works better...
