if i play at a lot of casino sites is it wise not to save the down load for example if i just keep the shortcut on my desk top will i have more memory
than if i save the downloaded file

I'm not a programmer so what i dont know about this subject could fill the encyclopedia:)

That will save you more hard drive memory space rocky, but I don't think you would notice that much, if any increase in your ram memory.

I'm not certain what you are asking here but I don't think it is virtual memory you are concerned about but Hard Disk space?

I think when you say just keep the shortcut on your desktop you mean the shortcut to an instant play Casino?

If you play instant play Casinos then there is negligible Hard Drive space used as you are not storing the Casino on your Hard Drive.

Sorry if I have misunderstood you.

Microgaming in particular used to be notorious for eating up entire hard drives:D, but they have reorganised the structure of the downloads so that having, say, 3 MGS casinos installed is not 3x as much hard drive space used (It used to be EXACTLY like this, with each MGS casino gobbling up 2Gig:eek:).

The shortcut to an instant play casino takes up the least space on the hard drive, however having to constantly load games, particularly the graphics, from the server can be tedious if internet speeds are slow. I remember it being routine for Lasseters games to take MINUTES to load each time I switched to a new one. This was WAY too slow, and would justify using the download version for me. Lasseters didn't have one, and have now closed down, so problem solved:)

Virtual memory, or RAM is a different matter. An instant play casino runs within your web browser, whereas a download casino is a software program in it's own right. Download casinos may put more strain on low spec PC's than instant play ones. The cheap PC's tend to come with relatively low amounts of RAM, but increasing RAM is the best way to breathe new life into a fading PC. I have done this myself, and have seen the visible improvements. The PC I did it on is STILL running, originally with 64Mbyte, I upgraded to 392Mbyte, which I was assured by a guide was optimum for Windows 98:D

My casino playing PC came with 2Gig of RAM, but can take 4Gig, and this will probably be the first thing I will upgrade - maybe it will fix the infamous "MGS jerk & stutter" when playing the slots:D
