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."

Edit : Okay, I read through that linked thread. So what happens is that ticking the "Do not update" box will not update the game, but only until the first time you try to run it again while in online mode. So you CAN avoid having it update by only ever running that particular game in offline mode.

Yes, if you have auto-update off it will still patch when you attempt to launch, but you can quickly go to offline mode and play unpatched. When they force the update no matter what though, obviously that's not an option.

For Bethesda games in particular I have often had patches break stuff or ruin performance. I would really like to choose not to patch, but Valve basically says fuck you. It's a common problem across all Steam games and when they're singleplayer I really don't see the need for it, other than corporate control. If a patch comes out that breaks my game all it will do is send me to torrent sites to get the previous version, which you would think they would not want to encourage.

Note before anyone jumps my shit that the same problem exist for newer Origin games that require the client, or any client-based auto-patching system I suspect.
