So, recently I found myself dealing with troubles really rather close to the ram cap, and decided to employ a solution for an older game I adore: Sword of the Stars—and other favorite games that were released before x64 was mainstream, called "Large Address Aware". It adds a flag to the EXE, plus a few patches here and there, and allows it to use larger amounts of memory, which works on Dream Daemon!
First: Download Large Address Aware from https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/attachments/ laa_2_0_4-zip.34392/ . Simple stuff. It's a portable program, and can be run from the .zip.
Follow the instructions detailed here!
You should be good, then! After a bit of testing, a few friends and I have yet to see any ill effects. We might test it live, but maybe not. Who knows!
