Now, I've always run my game with absolute zero virtual memory. I turned off the paging file and deleted it and have done this for over a year and can typically run every game I play maxed out without much issues. Even games that encroach upon Armed Assault 2's memory needs. I played Arma 1 maxed out and had great performance, granted it's graphically dated, but the need for memory is still there.
Now, I'd assume I could run this game maxed out just as every other, except for one small problem - No x64 support. The game hardly utilizes my RAM and therefore has serious problems with memory. No matter what settings I've tried, I get crap performance and texture memory problems (Textures popping in and out) so I don't really know what to do. I've tried reusing a paging file for the first time in a while, and didn't really see much of a difference.
Is there something I'm missing? What should be my settings for paging both in System settings and Arma 2's config?
--It's only recognizing 256mb of my 1gb Video Card memory, apparently. I've tried setting this to the respective 1,000mb, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I've even tried changing the nonlocalVRAM to the respective 8,000mb of RAM I have in my system, to no avail. I've also changed the file to Read Only, but it doesn't do anything for the Texture Problems or performance. Also, earlier I checked off Read Only and deleted both numbers, started up, played, then closed. When I checked it again, the .cfg file added the 271566848 to both entries again.
