    The Forest - on steam


    Hi

    Was wondering if somebody could help me with the below issue. Any help is appreciated.

    trying to get The Forest on steam to work on my PC a dell 420xps running windows 8.1 with 4gb of RAM on 32bit version.

    This game is in early alpha and have been trying to run a fix that has been posted but ran into issues. the fix listed is as follows.

    1) Click Start and search 'regedit'

    2) Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems\

    3)Double click on Windows file in right pane. (Here is the image provided for step 3)

    )

    4)In Value data field scroll left or right using the arrow keys until you find this:

    SharedSection=1024,3072,512.

    5)Change 3072 into 4096 so it reads: SharedSection=1024,4096,512
    (If you have SharedSection=1024,12228,512. change it from 12228 to 24300)

    6) Open Command Prompt and type "bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVa 4096"

    7) Restart PC


    I have been getting stuck on point 6 whilst running command prompt as admin. I get an error message

    ..the boot configuaration data store could not be opened. Access denied.

    sorry if this is in the wrong section but any ideas. cheers

    Hope it's better than the Android tablet version. Couldn't stand the touch controls, gave up after five minutes.
