I have used dosbox for so many times, but firstly I met the problem 🙁
I have an old program, called SIMS II, it's a tool for security, it launches fine and works fine under DOSBOX, but I have problem with RAM.
When I start DOSBOX, it eats ~45MB of ram. When I star a program SIMS, it jumps to 53mb of RAM, and later it goes up, ~every 10 seconds it jumps 1-2MB up. After running for a while, it makes dosbox use ~800mb of ram, and up.... until windows xp kills it 🙁
For example as from starting to write this message, memory consumption went up from 45MB to 100MB of ram.. and going up all the way
I tried using loadfix -64 sims.exe
I also searched for memory limits in dosbox.conf - but I could only find low memory limit, I think they won't help me..
Maybe you guys have some suggestions on this problem?
Dosbox version: 0.74
Motherboard Intel (but also tried on asrock with same problem)
RAM - DDR2, 1GB
Windows XP SP3, with latest patches
well the DOSBOX config is the default one...
Thank you very much!
