Skyrim Patched, LAA Fix No Longer Works

As noted on the Steam Users' Forums, a new patch is now available for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda's recently released RPG sequel (thanks Chris and Alex). As stated in the thread, one of the changes the patch implements is that the game can no longer be launched separately from Steam. A locked thread on the Bethesda Softworks Forums and another current thread discuss another consequence of the patch, which is that it means the game can no longer be hacked to run in Large Address Aware mode, which many users found was the solution to crashing issues and texture corruption problems. We contacted both Bethesda and Valve about whether we should expect a return of the ability to use large address awareness through a future update, but have not yet received a response.

I see a lot of people complaining about the game breaking LAA support but a lot of the criticism seems to be aimed at the 2GB restriction of 32bit processes, when in fact Skyrim typically uses about 1GB of RAM - no doubt due to the optimisations made for consoles. If LAA reduces the number of crashes then it isn't because the game is coming across the RAM ceiling.

This.

There is a huge amount of placebo effect going on here, likely stemming from the fact that people with crashes are scouring the internet and applying each and every suggested "fix" they can and then speculating that a particular one was the 'holy grail' and fixed all of their issues. It's also possible that the steam integration is somehow the cause of many of these crashes and using a modified exe outside of steam is actually helping some in this regard.

50+ hours in. 1 crash so far (in the beginning of the game, helgen keep, and reproducible by anyone). I'll use the LAA patch down the road when I mod the sh!t out of this game, but for now it's core function is not logically helpful to anyone.
