The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim New LAA Workaround

Skyrim Nexus offers a new way to make The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Large Address Aware, allowing systems to make use of an entire 4GB virtual memory address space when playing Bethesda's RPG sequel. This follows the patch that's been widely reported elsewhere since being mentioned here last night that broke the previous LAA awareness hack. Word is: "Skyrim4GB additionally hooks and replaces the Windows GetTickCount() function that may improve stuttering."

What's illegal in most Western countries is the act of circumventing the copy protection. That means that downloading a cracked EXE may be legal. But installing and using it is illegal. That's how it usually goes, although legislation (or rather jurisdiction) might differ from one country to another.


Actually, it's only illegal behavior if you engage in it solely in order to deprive the copyright holder of his due--ie, it's illegal if you use the circumvention to distribute unpaid-for bootleg copies, etc. If you paid for your copy and can prove it I hardly see how using a modified exe in its place would be illegal, since the copyright holder would not have been damaged by that activity.

OTOH, I tend to avoid "cracked" anything because I can never be sure of *what else* I might be getting besides the "cracked" exe...;)
