After much messing, I can get HL2 to run by setting up a 1gb swap partition on an SD card. There are a few gfx glitches though, water is messy as are video screens.]

I tried both games when a git my TN7 but no one worked. I'll try it again soon.


V25 are disponible for both games, if someone could try.

They way I did it is to use aparted (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....AParted&hl=en ) to create a 1gig swap partition on my sdcard, then use AMemoryBoost (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nuxtools&hl=en ) to enable the swap before launching the game. after quitting the game I reboot the tablet.

This way, the swap partition is only used for the duration of the game play to reduce the wear on the sdcard. I find having a constant swap file slows the tablet too.

You need to root your tablet first of course.

Yea! It theoretically work, but it don't support tegra note 7 should be a right consideration of Valve.
I found that:
After removing many official app, it just have about 550Mb ram left. Sometimes just 260Mb ram left...
Tablet become very hot.
