Increase your RAM usage for SWG

I would like to credit carbonfiberx for posting this on the web. I have copied it here to preserve the information...

This is a straightforward guide on how to increase the amount of memory that the SWG client can use. The default is around 750 MB but most people nowadays have anywhere from 1 to 8 GB of RAM so why not up the limit? Here you go:

This setting (taken from the SOE forums actually), will allow you to set

a new maximum RAM usage. Note, that 2 GB is the max, don't bother  allocating anything beyond that, the client won't use it.

This setting will not make much difference for un-modified clients, BUT,

if you use mods, and use the updated SWGEmu.exe client, you will want  to use that extra RAM.

Right-click the "My Computer" icon (Computer in Vista/Win7) Choose "Properties" from the context menu Click the "Advanced" tab ("Advanced system settings" link in Vista/Win7) Click the "Environment Variables" button Under the "System variables" section, click new Enter SWGCLIENT_MEMORY_SIZE_MB in the "Variable name" field and amount of memory to use (1024 for 1 gig) in the "Variable value" field Click OK

Then in game, open the debug window with CTRL+SHIFT+G, the new value should be displayed properly in megabytes.
