Temporary Fix for Bully on PC

Published at 3:24 PM PST

Some of you have been experiencing various problems with Bully on PC. Fear not. It seems Bully is is being bullied by large amounts of memory. There is a temporary work around for this problem while waiting for Rockstar New England to exterminate the bug with a patch.

  1. Launch the MSCONFIG utility. To do this, press and hold the Windows Button and the R button. Then type "msconfig" with out the quotes. (Vista users will have to run it as admin)
  2. Click on the Boot tab at the top and click the "Advanced Options" button. (On XP the "Boot" tab is called "Boot.ini")
  3. Check the "Maximum Memory" box and change the setting to exactly or less than 2000. (On XP the "Maximum Memory" option is called "MAXMEM".)
  4. Restart your computer.

Once Rockstar New England releases the patch, just simply un-check the "Maximum Memory" setting. Also, if you are experiencing audio crackling, you are most likely using surround sound when Bully is set to stereo. To fix this, just simply change your "Audio Output" to "Surround" in the options menu.
