- 99.9% 32 bits user will crash at loading screen or upon joining a server
The below method no longer works in v0.11 as its too large for any 32-bit pc players to play
2 section: If you crashed upon joing a server but you have a 64-bit PC, try lowering your graphics and Make sure you ticked 'Load Textures on demand' in warband config, otherwise crashed when joining a server
P.S. This is a very very demanding mod due to the amount of factions and items
Floris Mod have around 2300 items. This mod have over 6000 items
Be sure to tick 'Load Textures on Demand in Warband config' before you load. (this is a must, no matter if you have 32 or 64 bit PC)
Now these are the ways to help with the crashing problem - again this is a very very demanding mod. This is known as the most demanding mod in warband's history, so beware, as this will not work for low-spec pcs..a decent pc is required in order to play this mod, if you still crash after using the below information, there isn't much we can do, we have already optimized the mod size from 8.7GB to 2GB. This mod is heavily modified with a ton of factions..32 bits will crashed because 64 bits stores much more memory than 32 bits. and the fact that this mod have 4000+ items
Now, here are the solution for people who have 32 bit PC and want to play the mod. (Warning: It may only work on really strong 32 bit PC)
First of all,
if you have windows XP:
follow the following steps:
Menu Start -> Run, type sysdm.cpl and press ENTER
a window should open, go to tab Advanced -> Startup and Recovery Settings -> Edit
at this point you're editing your boot.ini file. Don't mess things up.
Look for the line with your operating system mentioned and add "/3GB /USERVA=2990" without quotes. Should look like this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /3GB /USERVA=2990
just add only the "/3GB /USER...", don't erase or add anything else as it may corrupt your booting file
save changes and reboot
Now, if you have Vista or Windows 7 and you have a 32 bit PC. Please follow the following steps:
if you are running as an Administrator go to Menu Start -> Run, type cmd and press ENTER
if not go to Menu Start -> Programs -> Accessories, press RMB on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator
in Command Prompt type "bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVA 2990" without quotes and press ENTER
That it, it is confirmed that alot of people with 'strong' 32 bit PC managed to play the mod after 'Adjusting their RAM'.
32 bit PC can use up to 2GB Max, this mod is over 2GB of 'RAM Usage' so you will crash, therefore you will have to adjust the RAM.
64 bit PC can go up to 128GB.
