Call of Duty Ghosts RAM 6GB minimum requirement fix –
this fix allows you to play with 4GB of Ram or less
Did you ever think to look at the ram requirement before purchasing Call of Duty Ghosts, no? Me neither! So it came as a shock that after I tried to run Call of Duty Ghosts I was prompted with a message telling me I didn’t meet the minimum (RAM) requirements.
Activision and Infinity Ward have set a ridiculous restriction to play Call of Duty: Ghosts. In the minimum system requirements field, the developers filled out 6 GB of RAM (recommended is actually 8GB).
With RAM prices currently inflated and twice the price they were,
largely in part due to the plant explosion in September of this year, this is not good news for anybody.
However, fortunately the 6GB RAM requirement can be ignored without suffering in gameplay, this fix overrides the games inbuilt system to check for 6GB RAM and will play with 4GB flawlessly.
I recorded my Call of Duty Ghosts video using Fraps and if anybody knows Fraps, it’s quite memory hungry and tends to drop frame rates dramatically whilst recording so if my 4GB of RAM wasn’t enough, recording with Fraps would surely ruin the game and bring it to a grinding stuttering death, but it doesn’t.
It’s safe to say this fix is a lifesaver for 4GB RAM gamers – perhaps we can make it to next year without needing to upgrade our RAM, and by then the prices should be dropping (here’s hoping).
If anybody is curious about my specs:
CPU: i5 3.3ghz
GPU: Nvidia 460GTX
RAM: OCZ Gold 4GB Ram.
This ram fix works on all versions of Call of Duty Ghosts, whether bought or not.
