Martin's CPU Speed Patch wasn't working with the above settings.

So I added GlobalMemoryStatusLie so it does.

Thanks for update Colin Smile

I've had no CTDs so far with your sdb file settings, and PU seems to run a little bit smoother as well. Could be a placebo effect, the smoother feeling, but the lack of CTD so far isn't Smile.

Tally so far without CTD =

Alps - Fwd 6 Bkw 17
Auto - Fwd 3 Bkw 3
Auv - Fwd 7 Bkw 7
Cors - Fwd 1 Bkw 1
Cote - Fwd 4 Bkw 0
Norm Fwd 8 Bkw 5
Pyr - Fwd 1 Bkw 1
Sch - Fwd 1 Bkw 5
MC's - Fwd 3 Bkw 2
Zone - Fwd 12 Bkw 6
