Dragon Age: Origins
Currently, there is no way to use the 4GB patch on the .exe and still run it through steam. I've been having all sorts of issues with crashes and whatnot, so I've been trying to find a work around.
Is it possible to grab a cracked .exe somewhere, replace it, patch it with the 4GB patch, and then just run it via shortcut rather than through steam? Would it not work because of steam files, or something like that? I'm not worried about saving achievements or anything like that...I just want my game to play without crashing so much >.>
I understand the crashing is due to the mods I'm running, memory leaks, etc. Before I got the Ultimate Edition though, I was able to run the exact same mods on DAO (CD-installed, not steam) with the 4GB patch just fine.
Thanks for any help. I might get brave enough to ask this on the official forums eventually lol.
The deal is, you can't enable the Large Address Aware flag while Steam still controls the game, since Steam does hash check on the executable file, which will fail if you modify it. BUT, you can use the CD key that you got with Steam, and install Dragon Age through Origin using the Redeem Product Code. Origin doesn't keep as tight a leash on the games, and DAO will run just fine with the LAA flag enabled. Hope this helps!
Hold on Rim had a LAA modification done before it was official done into the game and that ran fine with steam.
I realize this thread is really old, but I had a quick question. Do I need to uninstall my origins from Steam, and then reinstall the entire thing through Origin. If so, how do I keep my saves, and (if at all possible) mods intact?
Disregard, found instructions on how to do it and keep my saves at least.

I have a LAA program that enables it for ANY game, I wasn't aware there were some out there that only do it for individual games.
And neat trick about Origin! May have to look into that on my next playthrough!
