Maybe. Most of the game, it was content with ~750 MB of memory, but I never actually looked during the Docks portion--pretty much, I was only looking when the game crashed and I needed to End Task it [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]--so it could be using significantly more there.
So. I now have a page file, since I'm not trying
to be nuts. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Time to see if it improves anything....
EDIT: Alas, no noticeable improvement. Still getting an average of about 10 FPS on docks_02. And memory usage stayed under 500 MB.
