zram creates a virtual block device of a size you specify by writing ( for example "512m" ) to /sys/block/zramX/disksize ( where X is the 0 based number of the zram device in question, so 0 for the first one ). You can then format it for swap with mkswap /dev/zram0 and enable swapping on it with swapon /dev/zram0. It will be used as a swap device and data ...
You cannot just tell an application to use more memory; it will only request and use as much memory as it has been programmed to do so. If the application itself doesn't let you increase the memory in its own configuration then there is no way to force it to do so.
What I will suggest here is, try killing the other unnecessary processes when you run the game. Then there would be more memory available for all the remaining processes, and therefore the performance will increase. In fact it should increase then.

Yes. If you have uninstalled it you can remove the preferences file. All archived mail will be removed. As will all emails if you had a pop account. I assume that is what you want.
Consider adding some swap space. When your system starts to run out of memory, the OOM (Out Of Memory) killer will start killing applications to free up resources. A lot of times it kills applications you need running. dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/swapfile bs=1024 count=1048576 will give you a 1GB swap file in your /mnt directory. Then turn it in to actual ...
