Description

For all versions: I am releasing this application as I have found that it may help with crashing and performance issues with Stalker-COP, particularly when using the larger MOD some like 'Call of Pripyat Complete v1.0.2Advanced option',Reloaded and so on. Preamble: It is a good practice to specify large-address-aware for 32-bit applications (such as Stalker-COP), by using the linker flag /LARGEADDRESSAWARE, *even if the application is not intended for a 64-bit platform*, because of the advantages that are gained at no cost. Enabling this large-address-aware flag for software allows a 32-bit program to access more memory .In general, enabling the /LARGEADDRESSAWARE flag is a good practice, which is not enabled in Stalker-COP. That is what this utility does; it adds makes Stalker-COP 'large-address-aware'. However. you also need to enable the '3gb switch' (except in Vista or win7 64 bit). MOre just readthe 'READ ME.TXT'


Background info:

Regardless of the amount of physical memory in your system, Windows uses a virtual address space of 4 GB, with 2 GB allocated to user-mode processes (for example, applications) and 2 GB allocated to kernel-mode processes (for example, the operating system and kernel-mode drivers).

On systems that have 1 GB or more of physical memory, these two startup switches (see below), can be used to allocate more memory to applications (3 GB) and less memory to the operating system (1 GB). This additional virtual address space helps reduce the amount of memory fragmentation in the virtual address space of the Exchange information store process.

Credits: The genius of MadBoris, for programming this utility.

Me, just for tweaking it for use with Stalker-COP!

A10Thunderboltt, Are you sure you are not trying to get it to auto load, I admit I did that first(nothing happened) before realising that it is actually a file name that needs replacing in the cop folder manually and not an auto-load option like Complete can be downloaded with. I feel like a bit of a d**k admitting to that but hey we all make mistakes.

So I guess this patch isn't going to be of much help to those of us running Windows XP and with only 2 GB of RAM? :'-(

At least now I can still run the game if it crashes upon loading a new area by loading the auto-save of that area. Too bad that work-around is no good against crashes caused by "animation callback" file errors.

yeah,you need this patch too.Because this game is a 32bit'OC game,in the 64-bit'oc it can only use 2GBRAM . IN 64-bit oc,use this mod it's easy to just only do the first step and not need to enable the /3GB switch .

If you have a 64 bit operating system then you have no reason to use this. The game does not require this tweak and a 64 bit operating system does not require this tweak.

you can also use CFF Explorer.right click on exe "open with cff explorer" go to section "file headder" then check the box "application can use >2gb of ram" I do this in every game exe.

The "Utility" i mean the all MOD operation,the folder name is "Stalker-COP 3GB RAM Be fixed".Put your game's "Stalker-COP.exe" in this folder then double click 'START.BAT'and just follow it.

Stalker-COP (xrEngine.exe) already has the bit for IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE set in the image header... your willingness to help others is admirable but your efforts could be better invested. You can easily check the bit in question using CFF Explorer (already mentioned by diablow)

What does that mean " as i known, it doesn't work" ??
What does not work is this add-on you have made. When you first released it here I went and made a thread at GSC to let people know and found out this is pointless. All three games are large address aware and it does work. Your add-on does nothing, it makes no changes that were not already implemented and working. Yet you still have it up and promote it .

Don't know how to use what? I see no point in messing with the games .exe file when the game is already Large Address aware. And if your saying otherwise then it's you who clearly hasn't got a clue. The section for the operating system works for a 32 bit system but the bit for the game is useless.

seriously guys, i'm running out of answers.....

That's my problem: installes CoP and patched it (1.6.0.2). Tested it on highest settings possible. Ran smooth and looked pretty well.
I only got an average of 48fps, but that's okay i guess.

My System: Intel i7 860, 8 GB DDR3 1333 Corsair RAM, Radeon HD 5870 (Catalyst 11.08). Windows 7 pro 64 Bit.

Now the hook: i installed reloaded 0.7 mod and started a new game. Looked fantastic but i only got 5 fps (!!!!). I saved the game and searched the net for clues. Next time i started the game and loaded the save game i got a bsod with a "page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" at 0x00000050. Got it always at CoP with a mod installed. Complete mod won't even start at the first time. Always this beautiful bsod. Everything else on my machine works fine. The system is rock stable.

I did everything i could find out to solve the problem -> dxdiag, new driver installation, windows update, shut down Kaspersky, did a full system scan, memory and hdd scan. Nothing!

any clues where to start?

Rubberduck69....
ATI is still not optimized for games, there are many key problems. Try to disable Catalyst AI in CCC. It is better not to install the CCC at all, just the driver. Also known problem with Stalker and some other games with your version of the drivers, update drivers. Use the utility to switch everything on one core, as the game is still not optimized for multiple threads. Google to help.

P.S. The author of this utility (or the MOD, that I'm not sure) do not have to reinvent the wheel, there is a long time Stalker Loader, look for the search engines. But thanks anyway.
P.P.S. Sorry for the bad english
