I had been running the game with just the 8 MB of memory that I had when I bought my current computer in 2013, but I started getting loading times that were too long to tolerate. I upgraded the current machine myself to 16 MB maybe two or three months back and have been celebrating not breaking my machine ever since by downloading too many great assets.
Anyway, of late, if I've tabbed out of CS to another application (like Firefox with one or more Youtube pages open), I've have Windows tell me that I'm running low on memory, then seemingly give me the option to close the CS application. In reality, by the time this happens, the CS application is already too unstable to allow me to even save my progress, so my two options are to allow Windows to close the CS or deny it permission and then have to use the Task Manager to force the shut down. My load times are quite acceptable, so by that one (albeit simple) measure, the computer seems to be able to handle the assets and mods. However, I'd like to be able to move back and forth between Firefox and CS so that I can get inspiration from someone's Youtube series and/or Google Maps.
Does the behavior described above sound like anything other than subscribing to too many assets and mods? Any advice other than scrapping assets and mods?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Hello! So yesterday I downloaded some stuff to my game. And after that when I opened the game, it'd just crash to the desktop whenever I opened a city. I've tried to remove the files that I downloaded but still the same error... :/ I tried again today in a blank city tile, and it could load but I couldn't do anything. When I moved in the game, the map wouldn't move. I could only see that the map (like the map-map, on the game menu) was moving. What can this be?
Edit: Thanks for all your help! I just had to switch off the sound since AFAIK I didn't have any speakers for the game to output to.
Game crashes either on the EA splash screen, or if I use the SC4 Launcher and skip the intro, after exactly six seconds. Anyone had the same problem and/or know a fix?
More detail: all the Exception Reports state "ACCESS_VIOLATION" in the Exception Code and that ".pdb files appear to be absent" in the call stack/debug information. The game seems to recreate the SimCity 4 folder in My Documents on occasion, but yet, in-game, seems to be finding Regions from the SimCity 4 folder in the Steam directory.
It crashes exactly the same way in all events - a very short time into the EA splash screen or after exactly the same span of time (around 6 seconds) if I skip the intro using a Launcher.
Tried running in various compatibility modes, with a Launcher, without, on one core, on software renderer, on different resolutions. All no luck.
Here's a copy/paste of the latest Exception Report:
Years ago, I downloaded SimCity 4 Startup Manager by (according to the help contents) Jean-Luc Picard.
It was a handy tool to create custom config BMPs and now years later it won't run. It crashes upon launch. No error message, it looks as if it doesn't open, but if the Windows Task Manager is open when I try to run it, the program opens as a process for a split second and then it closes "crash"
Does anybody know how I can get it running again? It worked in 2011.
