    Faking RAM amount to play a game


    Hello!

    I have a computer that has 6GB of RAM (2x2GB + 2x1GB) and no free RAM slot. I wanted to play Forza Horizon 4 that has minimum RAM requirement 8GB. Every time I load the game I get an annoying warning that I do not have the minimum system requirement for low settings and game may not run properly. I just click on ignore and continue after which the game runs OK without any issues and with very good performance. I satisfy all the other minimum requirements, except that amount or RAM. So does anyone knows if I can disable this annoying message in Forza Horizon 4? The game runs well anyway.

    Alternatively, is there any way to fake the amount of RAM for example, a utility that can make RAM to appear as 8GB, even if Windows 10 report only 6GB can be used? Or a utility that can assign some GB from the hard disk or SSD as additional RAM, so the total would be raised from 6GB physical RAM to 8GB or 10GB combined RAM?

    I cannot just upgrade the RAM because I would have to replace the two 1GB modules with two 2GB modules. Also my motherboard and BIOS are crap, so mixed RAM modules may no boot. In that case I would have to replace all four modules with identical 2GB modules (RAM is DDR2) and that is not cost-effective. So is there any way to fake RAM or expand RAM using the hard disk or SSD? Any help appreciated. This would help other users facing RAM limitations with many other games.

    Thank you in advance.

    :)

    directx 12 fake?


    Thanks, i have tried that recently no change, as i kept the old driver in these cases. Next step is to try to reinstall this game. Any settings changes do nothing in game. Weird how has not happened throughout half the game till i reach this mission only in game all others before were fine.

    Notice back round, especially the trees being doubled plus off colors.
