VideoMemorySizeMB formula enblocal.ini confusion
RealVision page says this: for better performance i REALLY recommend to increase VideoMemorySizeMb, use this formula:
VideoMemorySizeMb = VRAM+RAM-2048 but the max. is 10240 !

Does that mean I would go to VideoMemorySizeMB and make it look just like this?

VideoMemorySizeMb=2048
or
VideoMemorySizeMB = VRAM+RAM-2048 ??

your vram amount... add on your system ram minus 2048 (all depends on how much memory your gfx card have and your system memory.

So if you have a 4 gb vram use 4096 + 8gb ram (8192) - 2048 would equal 10240

You will only find this file if you are using an ENB, which like adds graphic post processing stuff to a game.

You can read more about it on the STEP page http://wiki.step-project.com/Guide:ENB

- I believe max = 10240. I'd try that. ( 2048 + 16384 ) -2048 = essentially 16gig : but there's the 10.240 gig max ( of course 10.24 Gbytes = 10240 Mbytes )

So for my desktop but mainly a test for my ♥♥♥♥♥♥ laptop. I have Total Available Graphics Memory 4185MB, Dedicated Video Memory 128MB, Shared System Memory 4057MB, my graphics is 5500. Not sure how to calculate this because I'm ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

For anyone else that stumbles accross this thread with the same question.

There's a short paragraph detailing how it works. Also a samll tool made by Boris Vorontsov (The man behind ENB) that will do the calculating for you and just tell you what to put.
