How to fix Rust game crash/freeze

While playing Rust game, you could often encounter crashes and freezes, when the game crashed for no reason or at the time of loading before connected to the server. We will try to tell you how to fix this.

First you need to know - Rust game uses a lot of RAM and video memory. 

When a video card does not have enough memory for models, textures and other data (GDDR 3,4,5, X Video Memory), it begins to additionally use RAM (DDR 3,4), it has a lower speed, but game still work. if the RAM runs out - game crashes.

You can buy a more RAM, other Graphic Card with more video memory. But if now there is no opportunity, you can enable virtual ram memory. When there is not enough video memory and RAM, then the reserved space on HDD or SSD begins to be used as an additional "RAM". Of course, the speed there is extremely slower, but this will help solve the issue with the crash of the game.
