    Limit memory Wine shows to programs


    I decided to install an old favourite of mine using Wine (Conflict Freespace The Great War) and it appeared to go well. When running the game however, I get a message showing that there is not enough memory (-4gb free).

    I am sure this is due to an overflow as the software is so old it probably can't handle a 3gb machine.

    Is there any way to get Wine to pretend to have 512Mb of memory?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    That's a real pity. All the games I want to play have pretty much the same issue. They're old!

    are the ran in dos?
    if they are you could use dosemu or dosbox instead

    if not, did you try running them in older windows modes like 95?
