Maximum RAM for IL2
« on: April 17, 2020, 03:44:52 AM »

The IL2 selector screen shows a maximum RAM size of 1GB.
Is this all that IL-2 uses?
It is just that I have found some missions run slowly and my computer does have 8GB RAM available.

IL-2 1946 is a 32 Bit application and as such, it's limited to 2GB RAM.
Which means 2GB for the whole process, including lots of overhead.
Without going too much into details, you'll have a really hard time to get more than 1GB used for IL-2's Java belongings.
Nevertheless, in Expert mode you can (theoretically) go up all the way to 2GB.
Your game probably will refuse to even start at that setting though.

Thanks for clarifying this.
