I know on Vista the command was "bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVa 3072" However this is apparently not the case in Windows 7. Any Thoughts? Anyone know how to enable this change in Windows 7?
Are you quite sure that Fallout3 is able to access the extra memory (is it LARGEADDRESSAWARE [LAA])? If not, bumping up the userVA setting will slow down your OS a little for no gain at all, since the Fallout3 process will still limit itself to ~1.9GB tops.
As an aside, if Fallout3 really is LAA, if you run it under x64 Windows it'll be able to allocate up to 4GB for itself.
