I'm sure I'm not the only ATSer who plays Fallout games. Well...

Sorry, but I don't know where else to turn. I desperately need help. My New Vegas refuses to work at all.

I've cleaned out all the mods, reinstalled twice, copy & pasted my backup files, verified the game cache a million times, and even resorted to installing a fresher version from a pirating site. Both the steam version and the pirate version crash either immediately on the launcher or instantly after I try to start a new game. I got the DX9 drivers for NV and DX12 drivers for Fallout 4, and I updated the NVIDIA drivers a month or so ago. I just now rolled back the drivers and it didn't help.

I simply cannot comprehend what the problem could be. I installed the 7.5.0 version of the NVAC mod as well, but it didn't help either.

I have been dodging a WIN10 update for months because I knew it would break my games and apps all over again, and that's exactly what happened. The update was meant for sometime in April 2018 I checked my system settings and now, somehow, it says the device is up-to-date. Which means it snuck an update onto my device and broke something, yet again. My computer is an Acer laptop with 8 GB RAM and 1000 GB hard drive space. It used to run perfectly before Win10 invaded it.


Please help me with this. I've tried every fix under the sun and nothing works. My device simply isn't capable of running any version of Fallout New Vegas anymore.

Have you removed the user files?

There is another settings folder. Mine is under C:/users/games/Fallout IIRC

They keep some settings from mods as well that break stuff.

I don't think so? My other FalloutNV folder is in this pc/documents/mygames and that's where the ini files are. There's Fallout ini, FalloutPrefs ini, FalloutPrefs ini baked, Fallout Prefs ini Base, and the GECK inis and save games folder.

I looked up all the ways to tweak the ini to enhance game performance, but mine was already optimized from forever ago and it had all the right things fixed already, so I didn't mess with it. It worked like a charm before now...

EDIT: The user file path on mine just has Public and the name of my computer, no games folder. Is that bad? xD

im not sure why, but missing the big updates can sometimes cause win10 to think its up to date even after checking.
probably nothing, but worth checking what version you have.

Makes sense. It keeps acting like it's missing something that's necessary to run, even the bootleg version. I think it's a driver issue, which means I'm doomed, because I know literally nothing about them. I already have everything I should need, and no matter how many times I ensure all the files and dll thingys are where they need to be, New Vegas simply won't work.

Not only that, but my Fallout 4 is freezing up a LOT more often now.

They screwed up...

Step 1, wait till steam winter sale.
Step 2, But Fallout 4 really cheap.
Step 3, get a PC that your not afraid to update.
Step 4, install fallout 4 on said PC.
Step 5, enjoy a much better game.
Step 6, follow MxR Mods on youtube.

Hello

Try make sure you have all versions of net framework in place, Also install and check Visual basic runtimes, these apps are often overlooked when trying solve game issues, but are a common problem, i am a certified microsoft engineer (retired)
let me know how you get on

Latest Windows update sent a short list of games into the netherworld
Mine was Tomb Raider 2013
Of the 60 or 70 games I have installed , just that one

And , yes I have performed hour upon hour of troubleshooting

(I may load up my FONV just to see)

Might be worth a try to run the game’s exe file as an administrator and in compatibility mode might have to run in Win 7 or XP mode. Another thing worth a try is booting into safe mode and using display driver uninstaller then restart normally and reinstall the latest GeForce driver.

I’m not sure if I have new Vegas on steam (wasn’t my favorite so I’m not sure if I have it on more than just my old 360 but If I have it I’ll give it a try and see if I can’t confirm the issue and play around to try to get it going.

Try reading this.

help.bethesda.net...

If that doesn't work ....


Here how I got FoNV to work:

Launch new vegas from the launcher

Alt + Tab out and press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to access the task manager

Go to 'Processes' tab and Find FalloutNV, right click it and click 'Go to details'

You should now be in the details tab with FalloutNV.exe highlighted. Right click it and choose 'Set affinity'

In the Processor affinity window, uncheck and check only 'CPU 0'

Click ok and tab back into the game.

You have to remember to reset the processor affinity to only 1 core every time you launch the game. There might be a way to force it to launch with only 1 core every time but I don't know how to do it.

www.reddit.com...

If that doesn't work ...


Install NVSE[nvse.silverlock.org]
create folder name NVSE in Data folder
create nvse_config.ini open it and put in this line

[Memory]
DefaultHeapInitialAllocMB=400

then install NVAC[rd.nexusmods.com]

if still experiencing stuttering try NVSR[rd.nexusmods.com]
and edit fMaximumFPS = 30 or 60
and iHeapSize = 400
both lines are in the mod ini

and both mod are install inside NVSE folder

*These line must be edit in Fallout.ini in My Document only!

iNumHWThreads=2
bUseThreadedAI=1

Download Mod Organizer 2 and get New Vegas Anti Crash and the 4gb patch. You'll also want/need the New Vegas script extender. I play NV moderately/heavily on W10 with no probs

Once you get the NVSE launch New Vegas using only that. MO2 should find it for you

Here's the right 4gb patch www.nexusmods.com...

NVSE: nvse.silverlock.org...

MO2: www.nexusmods.com...

NVAC:www.nexusmods.com...

Set up MO2 before you install NVAC btw.

Try this.

I appreciate all the help! For the most part, I've tried everything mentioned save for resetting my laptop again, and that was a nightmare, having to reinstall everything and remember passwords from eons back. Sigh...

I'll keep trying. Whatever it is, it's not specific to my New Vegas. It doesn't just happen with the steam version, which still contains bits and pieces of my mods.

It also happens with a brand new, untouched New Vegas I downloaded from the pirate bay.

Whatever it is, it isn't an issue with the game. It's my computer refusing to run it. The computer is the problem. That's all I really know for sure.
