hi i have anno 1404 on ubisoft and im playing in multiplayer network with my GF- we have fun unless it always says " WARNING not enough memory blabla " and then sometimes it just closes during autosave or save or anytime.

is that also a matter of fact in the gog version -?! or was that changed ?! i read that the old anno could only work with 2gb ram !- i mean these days you have like 32 gb ram , and so its bretty maddening if your game crashes so often on a rather new computer :(.

well i saw some bug reprots and crashes here in the forum too, but let me in if you have that problems IN multiplayer too ! #

regards brogi
I haven't played 1404 myself yet but I've read about this problem. Anno 1404 is a 32bit game and as such can only use up to 2GB Ram by default - however, this is merely a limitation to ensure it doesn't take up all the resources on a 32bit OS. The maximum amount of RAM a 32bit application can use is 4GB, and on a 32bit OS that means 4GB total for Windows and all programs! However, with a 64bit OS this is no longer an issue and you can enable the "Large Address Aware" flag in the exe file, allowing it to use up to 4GB RAM, which hopefully will be enough.

This video shows how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9zrY__OMr4
There is a link to the program you'll need in the description. If you encounter any problems feel free to ask, I have used this program with other games in the past. If necessary I can of course write you in German.

If you still encounter any problems you should try lowering the graphics settings, especially texture quality, if possible.

Dankeschön- ich werde es direkt mal ausprobieren.
Thanks a dozen times - i will try that out right now :)
Nope.

Anno 1404 Venice (GOG version) has critical bug causing memory leak.
I've tried track it down what's causing it, but no luck so far.
Confirmed on 2 separate PCs, having 16GB RAM both.. even if it's 32-bit app it's leaking memory.
Running Win 8.1 64-bit.

It happens on long played games and while game is in the background.

See the error when OS crashes completly.

Right, my understanding is that the suggested fix just tells the program to try to access up to 4GB of memory, it does not fix the memory leak itself. Given enough time, it'll gobble up 4GB, then crash. Question is, can you reload a save for a game that has previously crashed, and still play it, for at least a reasonable length of time, say 30 minutes, without crashing?
Hi!
use you Windows 10?
Have you try it with CFF explorer?

I have old XP 32 bit.
so, i use self more as 2Gb Ram. And i don't become error or Crash comming from my memory, i use this software any month.

now to answer to doctorfrog. If a saved game can be are reloaded that previously are crashed?

By me self, i have graphic card crash. (old graphic card).
So after i try it to reload a game previously crashed, the crash reapear.
So i don't if by memory crash, it same.
try it with CFF Explorer.

You could try this: https://steamcommunity.com/app/33250/discussions/0/35219681468031422#c135514402721859100

I just found it, don't know if it works, I still haven't played the game myself.
If you have an NVIDIA Graphics card the following works:- Set in-game graphics to medium, then boost your graphics settings in the NVIDIA Control Center. Works a treat and gives you HI-Res graphics with no performance hit and no out of memory crashes. Should work for AMD cards too. I can't post a link??? but search for NVIDIA or AMD Control Panel Settings

Hi there,

Just to share that i had the very same issue. Venice was unplayable although Anno 1404 Gold had no problems. Here is what solved my issues:
On Windows 10 go to security and maintenance, then click on the Windows program compatibility troubleshooter, there select anno Venice, it will ask to test the program...test it...all of a sudden all the problems were gone. next time you leave the game, ask the windows troubleshooters to save the setttings...
It worked for me, hope it will for you
