How to make SMOD and other Source SDK 2006 mods crash less


Here, we will go over the process to make SMOD LAA (Large Address Aware)

  1. Go to your SteamApps folder and find hl2.exe. It should be in SteamApps/Source SDK.
  2. Download the tool from this site: Techpowerup.com
  3. Copy the hl2.exe and paste it somewhere secure.
  4. After you download the tool, close Steam to avoid a possible VAC ban.
  5. Check the box in the tool that says "LAA" (Large Address Aware)
  6. Use the LAA tool on the hl2.exe in the Source SDK folder.
  7. Restart Steam, and run your SMOD mod.
