Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

Report article RSS Feed Increasing Dawn of War's RAM usage.

a quick tutorial to increase the amount of RAM Dawn of war(or any other game) can use to stop it from crashing due to "lack of RAM"

Posted by Chompster on Sep 1st, 2011
Basic Other.

First of all, make sure you have a 64x Operating System and that you have more than 2GB RAM, preferably 4GB or more. Second, you need to download this little software needed to edit the executable (soulstorm.exe), CFF explorer: Ntcore.com After downloading it open the CFF explorer and top left click on 'file', then 'open' (or just on the big folder image beneath it)
Image
a new window should open, browse to your DC(or Soulstorm or any other game) .exe and double click it or click it and then open
Image
on the left side there should be a list, under 'Nt Headers' should be "File Header' click once on it. now in the panel on the right, all the way to the right bottom there should be 'Click here' click it
Image
finally a small window will open with a bunch of options u can check or uncheck, look for 'App can handle >2GB address space' and check it. then click Ok and save it ('file' top left, then 'Save'.)
