We were really annoyed by Skyrim’s latest patch. We don’t mind the Steam DRM that was introduced. But the fact that it broke some of the most useful mods was a bit hard to swallow. Thankfully though, there is a solution as modder ‘Monochrome Wench’ released Skyrim4GB; a tool to load Skyrim with the Large Address Aware executable flag set so the entire 4GB Virtual Memory Address Space can be used by the game. And yes, this tool is compatible with Skyrim’s latest DRM version so go ahead and grab it.
We should note, however, that you should not have a modified TESV.exe file. If your file is modified you will not be able to run the game. Bad news then to those that used some hex editors to change some of the game’s values. If you have a modified executable file, right click on Skyrim and get properies. On the Local Files tab click Verify Integrity of Game Cache. Steam will then check for modified files and redownload them as necessary.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
