Default Burning Sands memory usage Windows XP

Does burning sands use a lot more memory than any other map? I get an memory allocation error after its done loading. I have 4 gigs, but am running windows XP so there is the OS limitation and I have a readon 3200, which might be using some of the system memory.

Also how do I set windowed mode? I clicked on properties on the shortcut then on the middle tab (Verkn?pfung) then selected next to execute (ausf?hren) Start in maximized window, but it didnt change a thing.

I think this is in the wrong section but here you go...

- Right click
- Properties
- Change the target line

"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe" +menu 1 +fullscreen 1

Change the "fullscreen 1" to "fullscreen 0".



(Your target line will be a bit different as I'm running a 64-bit OS)

this used to happen to me on fools road. i know this doesnt help much but you'll not get the same performance out of 2ghz of memory with xp32. perhapse you should look into getting xp64. there may be a corperate version available or somthing along those lines (Not pirate). that would allow you to use your 4ghz. its the only option i know of.

however, your crashing problem could be related to somthing a lot less trivial, like a cache file dump or somthing.

4gb Ram under windows XP = 3gb. 3gb is the max, anymore simply doesn't get used. I run XP with 3gb and CTD on burning sands also.

Yeah I am having a similar problem with the map. It loads fine, but if I go anywhere near the city it goes choppy as hell. Getting 80Fps in the desert and surrounding flags.

I can't even get onto Burning Sands. It'll load all the way, but then after it goes to verifying client data and such, it'll just bottom, out and say there's a memory error, leaving me with a rotating loading ring from windows 7 instead of a PR cursor.

Its the only map it happens on too, everything else loads and runs fine, just this one. Any help?

Try lowering your settings. That'll put less strain on your machine and should let it load.
What are you running at currently?

System Specs?

Rest assured, that with a heart that's pure, we'll be victorious and not let our hate get the best of us.

I have done and i've left them on medium now, but I get pretty good frame rates already on all other maps and everything runs fine.

4gb RAM, 2.10GHz processor, 512mb graphics, Win 7 32bit.

Haven't got a clue what's up with it.
