I have only come across this issue recently with Civilization 5 (through Steam) where the game would crash followed by an explorer crash and warnings that there is not enough memory in the system to run the game. I don't understand this considering I have not had issues for over a year on this system.
Here are my system specs:
What could possibly be causing this issue? I have done all the necessary updates for ALL components. Any input would be appreciated to troubleshoot the problem.
Thats odd. I suppose it could be that the game is running out of memory allocated to it if its not LAA (Sins of a Solar Empire does this occasionally), but that wouldn't really explain the explorer crash.
Some older games require the microsoft game software (gfwlive) to be installed. Fallout3 crashes without it (in Windows 8 anyway, I cannot remember if that was necessary in Windows 7, but I think it was).
Scratch that... I just fired up Civ V from Steam on my Windows 8 machine... worked fine. Even has new options for Windows 8 touch screen in the startup!!
Civilization V Crashes on low memory CPU on HD video or big maps. You can fix it by lowering the graphics settings. If not work, change the value in the config(ini) file, "HideOutOfVRamWarning"
to 1 may remove this error message.
