This thread is for anyone who is interested in playing Fallout New Vegas the proper way (because without the bug fixes and optimizations, FNV has some very frustrating problems).

This is EssArrBee, the bible for anyone who knows nothing and wants to successfully install and modify their FNV game.

It's long as hell, but you'll almost certainly skip sections that don't apply to you/aren't interesting to you (since you choose what mods to install). I have a number of things that I use as alternatives to the long-winded methods of EssArrBee (if anyone is interested in setup help, I'm happy to share), but SRB is still a vital guide. If you decide to try installing this game, and have any questions or run into any problems along the way, post in this thread and I'll help.

If you played FNV when it came out, you may have learned how to install mods back then, but the process has changed a lot, and it's much more effective, specifically with regards to using multiple mods without running into crashes and other errors.

I didn't like Brazil much. It started off good enough, but after you leave the vault the plot threads are kind of just dropped, and the larger world feels pretty empty if you try and explore at all.

Why TOTW? Why not just play FO3 after you're done?

How have you spent 400 hours on 1 playthrough? Must be taking your time. If you're struggling to mod it, the key elements of modding FNV are:
1) load order sorting
2) mod cleaning (ITM records, leveled lists, etc.)
3) merged and bashed patch
4) bug fix patches, script extender, and similar utilities

If you get those four things down, you should be all set. I'm happy to answer any question about how to do those things to, even if you're a complete beginner. I just love FNV enough that I'm happy to spread it to others.

FO3 is still really shitty and buggy on an engine level, especially on Win10. ToTW uses NV's version, which is slightly less crash prone.

The problem with Tale of Two Wastelands is you can't create your own back story for the Courier. I like that he starts out weak and naive, and goes on to be one of the biggest power players in the Mojave. I love that basically a mail man is the most dangerous man in the wasteland.

It also makes sense that you level up quickly in New Vegas, you got shot in the head, it makes sense that you'd have to relearn things, but at a faster rate than one normally would if they had to learn them in the first place. The head injury can also result in having a lack of morals, having the courage to rush into battle feeling like you'll get a second chance, being unable to resist stealing items as if you feel like they belong to you, etc.

Haven't played Project Brazil yet, I hear the world feels a little too empty, but I'll judge for myself when I play it later this year. How are the default companions in it? I know you can use certain vanilla companion mods(like the one in my picture) by using the "Place NPC at me" console command.

If your game crashes during the Russel battle at the end of his quest, you can use console commands to skip it.

I want some really fucking brutal and bad ass games. Horror, action, RPG you name it... I want to add some good titles to my list. Anything that lets you get your hands bloody or want to make you piss yourself is good for me.

I'll contribute with some obvious ones first.

What videogames do you think would translate to great movies? I think Zelda Majora's Mask would be a great movie if made by Hayao Miyazaki. Also, is it possible for a videogame movie to be good?

Could be something gameplay-focused like the Skate series, or even something creepy like Silent Hill. Maybe you like roaming around on Morrowind and soaking in some lore and hoarding books? Would like to hear what you guys enjoy

I'm teaching my self unreal engine and C++. Every days work is better than the day before. But since I am work on a long project it's based of my shitty previous work.

I've restarted my project 3 times. It's a personal project and I'm self taught so this is part of the process, but it's hard to stay motivated and focused when I keep having to crumple up my work and throw it away and start over again.

Pic is random screen shot of stuff i threw away because I made it too overly complicated and jumbled.

This post is just me ranting into the void to let off stress.

I've started using unity again recently too. I've attempted and given up on game projects before, but I've kinda learned from that now. The first big thing I learned is to keep the project small in scope and realistic. Nothing that's too hard or crazy to program/draw, short game, etc. One of my problems in earlier projects was I wanted to immediately make the best fucking game ever and kept tacking on new ideas halfway into my project.

The other thing I've done is spent a great deal more time in the planning phase. In previous projects I would only have things half through out, so halfway through coding the thing I'd realize I needed something more or that something didn't work and had to rewrite game systems constantly while the game lost its identity. This time I've got the mechanics totally worked out and the vast majority of the story written before I've even started the unity project. Even have some concept drawings from a friend for some characters and locations.

So I'm hoping I might actually finish this project for once. My problem has never been a lack of knowledge, coding comes pretty easy to me. Tends to be losing interest or getting frustrated by setting big unrealistic goals.

Good luck to you OP I hope you're able to finish your project. And my advice is to plan extensively and for your first game make it simple. Lots of classic games have one or two simple mechanics that they flesh out to their limit, and that's a good way to make a great first game.

Yeah, I think that this reason is the impetus for the modern divide between more "hardcore" and "casual" gamers. People were upset that anyone could be a gamer now, so they invented new terminology to keep themselves exclusive.

The problem with this divide is that it implies value, not that it's a false dichotomy. For any media some people dip their toes and some go nuts. You don't have time attention and headspace to be a seriously into everything but if we don't try a lot of different things we're missing out in life.

This bullshit is the same as music. Being a snob or thinking it makes you better is absolute fucking delusion. You've sacrificed something else and are a filthy casual at most things. But lets not pretend that some people don't know more about, have more passion and better understand some things than other people. That doesn't mean the enjoyment everyone else gets isn't as valid or real, but they are putting less in, in total. If they wanted more out of that medium they'd have to dig deeper as they'd quickly exhaust what they're doing. The real issue is the sense of elitism. I'm not sure it's simple as the doors to their club are open as the doors to their club are open to people who criticised them for it years ago and still treat them like shit now. However proving them right is not the way to go.

What makes you feel that way? I have both and personally, I don't think they're in a similar genre.

I've never had a problem with the controls and they're pretty much if not identical to the last game's.

If you don't want to clean it, replace old hardware or add a fan, you can adjust the temp limit/target temperature where your GPU starts reducing its processing power in response to generating too much heat. Think MSI Afterburner and similar should be able to handle this.

Better than risking hard locks. OSs can recover from most situations that force a power-off condition or lockup, but it's a bit like smoking: any one could be the one that corrupts things in a very annoying way.

When the weather starts getting warmer, though, that's your cue to use compressed air on all your shit in preparation for summer. Takes like 10 minutes and resolves many problems.

>Replace hardware instead of clean it.
R u made of money? I hope he just cleans it and gets a proper afterburner profile going. Don't know about Nvidia but and doesn't really like after burner as it conflicts with the CCC or what ever the new profile is. I had some trouble getting my fans to spin properly and tried using afterburner but I kept suffering hard resets on any DX11 game. I thought I was over heating but afterburner insisted peak temp was below 50c during gameplay and CCC didn't seem to read any activity. Turns out that custom fan curve was conflicting with with the CCC and causing the video card to disconnect. Not only that but the driver wasnt functioning properly so the fans would never spin up using just CCC. After getting the correct driver, had to roll back for my hardware and os combo, it spins up fine and I've had no hard resets since. Sounds like OP needs to unleash some Google Fu and look the tech forums.

Where did I say it made it any better? You were the one who hoped manufacturers would relocate to the US, like that was preferable. And I think the idea that the US government has significantly less influence on tech companies here is incredibly naive given that they frequently work together closely and share very similar interests (see, ironically, Huawei/Google), but that's getting a bit too far into pol territory.

I don't know what I'm quite after, but do you know any games that have some kind of atmosphere that resonates somehow for you? Looking for some games with unique moods.

For some reason the early Deer Hunter games strikes something in me, can't really place what it is. Something about the mood just hits right at my comfy bone.
