I am running the latest version of X3 Terran Conflict (3.1) and after about 30 min - 1 hour it's memory usage goes well above 2 GB. I only have 4 GB of ram, running Windows 7 64 bit. As a result of X3 using more ram than is available, my hard drive starts paging and makes the game and other applications become unusable. I have to restart the game.
Is anyone aware of this issue or how to fix it and is there any way in Windows or through some tool, to limit how much memory is given to the game?
Is this a bug in the game? Can this even be fixed? I'm using some mods but I doubt any of them are causing this as they are simple mods like adding a tractor beam etc.
