by on Mar.15, 2014, under Games, General, PC

Scavenger HuntHere at Gaveroid.com, we try to help you have the best experience possible. Well, what adds to the experience as well as free stuff? We have started a recurring event called Gaveroid’s  Scavenger Hunt, taking place on our Just Cause 2 Multiplayer game server.

We have positioned a large Gaveroid “G” logo  at a hidden location somewhere on the map. Your mission is to travel around Panau and hunt for the hidden logo. When you find the logo, move into it’s radius. It will then change color and a popup box will appear on your screen with instructions on how to claim your prize. The first person to complete these objectives will win the current prize. Pease note; just because you find it does not necessarily mean you have won. We will notify you within 48 hours to let you know.

This hunt’s prize will be Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction Deluxe Edition for the PC. Please note that this game requires Steam to play.

How to free up a large sum of data (20GB for me) on your storage drive – the HDD MEMORY CACHE FILE!

by on Mar.11, 2014, under PC

inside_hdLike I said in my post about Far Cry 3 leaving 9GB of useless install data if you bought it through the GameStop Downloader, I’m in a fight for space. A few months ago, I found a way to save a lot of space on your drive (about 20GB in my case), and I will tell you how. Note that I only recommend doing such a thing if you have at least 12-16GB of ram. You could probably do with about 8GB for this, but more than that will help you with the minor drawback (and, yes, there are some). If you have under 6-8GB, I wouldn’t recommend doing this. 6-7GB is still pushing it. If you have under 8GB, only do this if you are really desperate for space.

Windows has a memory paging file (basically virtual RAM files stored on your HDD instead of on RAM sticks when your RAM gets full up), and that file is usually huge – in my case (on a 750GB hard drive) about 20GB. The drawback is that this may slightly decrease performance and loading time, which is why you need quite a bit of RAM (or your computer could crash due to not enough memory). Due to this, I am telling you to only do this at your own risk – I am not responsible for any damage this may cause to your computer, and nobody at Gaveroid.com is responsible either. This task is absolutely not for the computer illiterate. I explain later in the article how to check how much RAM you have; so, don’t fret if you can’t find it.

I am doing this on Windows 7 Home Premium, so your mileage may vary. First, go to the Control Panel, and then System. You can check out the specifications of your system here (such as how much RAM you have). Click on Advanced System Settings on the left hand side of the page. Click Settings under Performance. Go to the Advanced tab, and then lcick Change under virtual memory. It will tell you how large the paging file is (in my case, it’s 2048MB after the change). There should be a selection of drives; click your main programs drive (or any one that you put your data on). If you pick the wrong drive, problems could occur, so, be careful! Then, under that, there should be a Custom Size option. Click the button to the left of it. It should say initial size and maximum size. Depending on how much RAM you have is how much you should lower it. Don’t make it too low, but find out a comfy spot for you. I have it set to an initial size of 2048MB (2GB), and a maximum size of 4096MB (4GB). I have 16GB of physical RAM, so I can put up with this. If you have 8GB, you may want to put it a little higher. Like I said earlier, if you have anything under 6-8GB, I would not recommend doing this. Don’t put both values as the same, as you want to give your computer some breathing room in case it does need to use this memory. Click set, and click OK. 

Now, you’re all set! Thanks for reading, and have a great day. Pass this onto your friends; maybe it will help them! Sometimes, you just don’t have the option to upgrade, so you must scrounge for ways to save up space. If this article gets a lot of hits, I might make a video tutorial – it’s easier to do things like this with a visual aid. If you have any questions, feel free to comment down below. Stay posted here at Gaveroid.com for new posts about the latest and greatest tech and gaming news!
