Memory Switch to Reduce Crashing

Since some people aren't able to search the internet to find the 3gb switch, I will provide it here.

The 3gb enabler will tag S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky as a program that uses alot of memory. This means that when Clear Sky uses more than the maximum allocated memory or RAM, the game will no longer crash as your operating system will understand how to handle the large data requirements.

Basically, this will allow Clear Sky to run even when it is using more RAM than available and reduces crashing when entering new areas or saving/loading.

Firstly, open command prompt with elevated administrator access and type in: BCDEDIT /set increaseuserva 2900
If you are running vista 32, use: BCDEDIT /set increaseuserva 3072

Next, download this file: [link];6791818;/fileinfo.html[/link]

Unzip and put the contents of the folder into your STALKER/BIN directory.

Now, open up the bin folder and backup the "xrengine.exe" file, then open up command prompt and set it to run inside the STALKER/BIN folder.

You can do this by typing: cd followed by the path to your stalker/bin directory.

eg. cd C:\Program Files\Deep Silver\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Clear Sky\bin

Finally, type in this:
editbin.exe /LARGEADDRESSAWARE xrengine.exe

That is it. If your crashes are reduced then you have applied the patch correctly.
