    4Gb patch installation

    Post by FlyingNutcase on Sat Oct 10, 2015 8:21 pm

    So with regard to "4gb_patch.exe":
    1) Does it need to go in the MODS folder?
    2) When it runs (by double-clicking I assume, not via JGSME?), it asks to select an executable. Is that "starter.exe", "JSGME.exe" or something else?

    EDIT
    There are two files subject to be patched:
    1. ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\bin\rel\shell.exe
    2. ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\starter.exe

    It is only for "starter.exe" and "shell.exe"
    1. ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\starter.exe
    2. ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\bin\rel\shell.exe

    1. ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\starter.exe
    2. ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\bin\rel\shell.exe

    Thanks for the reply.

    So we run 4gb_patch.exe twice, from any location, once selecting ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\starter.exe and once selecting ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\bin\rel\shell.exe?

    Once is enough. It's either not both!

    So which one should be patched: starter.exe or shell.exe or it doesn't matter?

    As I said in my post either is fine. I personally prefer the starter.exe a but ultimately they share the same root file.

    According to my experience, it is necessary to patch both files. In any case, patching both files will not have negative effects...

    I do recommend patching both files.

    The patch is needed to let Steel Fury use more RAM memory. That additional memory is needed because the mods developed require more RAM memory than the original Game.

    Also is important, that the patch is dedicated ONLY to 64 bit Windows (Vista, 7, 8, 10).

    One small question - the STA mod has the shell.exe file in it, but it seems to be older than the shell.exe in the bin\rel\ directory of the base game?

    Shall the STA "shell.exe" be patched then?

    Personally I patch the starter .exe file I the game main directory and it seems to work fine .I don't think you need to patch the one in the bin folder.
