Infinite Loading Screen syndrome to be a thing of the past.

Even years after release Skyrim continues to be modded into one of the most amazing games ever, with a new tinkerer unlocking Skyrim‘s limit on memory allocation.
Modder sheson explains that “When tesv.exe is started it allocates two 256MB blocks of memory. When the first block gets full, the engine will allocate more blocks.”
“Thankfully, by telling the engine to request a bigger block from the start it magically makes use of it without any further ado. This isn’t the case with the second block. Thankfully again, the second block does not fill up as quickly and once it is full the engine does not trip over itself when allocating more blocks.”
The instructions are a bit difficult to understand, but thankfully a very handsome reddit user has got it all working and compiled a .dll file for you to put in the appropriate directory. You’ll also need to do an .ini adjust as well (details on the link).
Time to start downloading all those mods, people.
