I recently bought Gold tru steam as I enjoyed the original Hegemony so much. I almost finished the original but it kept crashing near the end. I figured this was due to the fact that I had conquered almost the entire map and my memory wasn't sufficient. However, Gold crashes as soon as I start, rigt after I command Phillip and his companions to replenish at the nearby farm. The game autodetects my hardware to high settings. I haven't tried lowering these yet. As for the crash, it's total: screens goes black and I have to reset. I have experienced these kind of crashes with other games lately. I'm unable to play most new games, even those that are allready a year old. I didn't have the issue before. I played Space Marine for instance, back when it came out (with low specs) but had no crashes, or very little. and I assume it's a Win 7 problem (not a hegemony problem). With Sid meiers Railroads (the new version obv.) I had the same. Online I found that Win 7 can have a problem accessing enough Ram making games that demand a lot of it to lag or even crash. Since I have 4gigs of ram I should have more than enough. For Railroads I found a fix, somebody made an .exe for RR that changed something in Win 7 so that it does access the extra Ram if needed, the game hardly crashes anymore. I was wondering, is there such a fix for Hegemony? Or does anyone know how to fix this Ram issue with Win 7 in general? My system is:
Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Pentium E5200 dual core processor 2,5 ghrz
4 gigs of Ram
Radeon HD 4800
Any help would be appreciated.
