    BF2 and VM

    Well, discovered one thing, don't set your Virtual memory, let windows manage it.
    I have a gig of ram and always set mine to 500mb.
    Well, it ain't enuff. I control tabbed out of the game a few times and was getting Low on VM warnings in windows.
    So a gig and a half ain't enuff

    I only did that manual setting of the swapfile back in Win9X, since NT manages memory very well...never saw any performance gain trying to manually set the pagefile with NT...so stopped doing it since Win2K.
