You should check out the CE thread, memory issues have been discussed and a solution has been provided :

Specifically :

Game crashes/freezes after or during the loading screen when having the Endless Loot Addon installed:
Your FTL does not have access to enough memory in order to cache all the images EL adds. The solution is to allocate more memory to FTL:

I got Endless Loot 0.97 working by using a program to allow FTL to access more ram.
You just have to apply this fix to the FTLgame.exe and it'll launch without any issues.

I just tested the game properly after applying this patch and it runs perfectly :)

Don't know what to say, friend. I used this solution on a low end computer to get FTL going, and it did the job.
