Frequently Asked Questions

Please skim through this FAQ before posting questions on the blog

 

1 - I have a lot of mods installed already. Can I still use the Fallout NV Beautification Project settings and guide?
If you want to keep you own mod setup, but want use the FNBP ENB settings, you can do so without any problems. However, since the ENB settings are based on the mods in this guide, the results may vary. I good idea would be to add the weather and lighting mods from this guide as well.

 

2 - Can I continue a save-game after uninstalling my current mods, and adding the NVBP mods?
Yes, there is a chance it will work. If no leftovers from the previous mods are saved in the save-game file, you should be good. But if you get random CTDs, this will be the reason. If so, then you need to start a new game. I know there are save-game cleaners for Skyrim, but I have not seen any for Fallout: New Vegas yet. If you find one, or create one, please let me know on the Nexus blog.

 

3 - I get a CTD every time I enter a certain location.
This is most likely due to corrupt item references in your save-game, or simply too many ID references. This can be easily fixed with a cell re-spawn. In-game, go to any player-home and sleep for 30 days. That will reset all cells except the "safe cells". *Make sure you have all your stuff stored in your home before going to sleep, or you will loose it all.

 

4 - I randomly get endless loading screens when traveling.
This is commonly caused when the textures take up too much video memory. Even though ENB helps this, it can not eliminate the problem if you simply don't have enough memory for textures. I that case, remove some of the larger texture packs.

 

5 - Some walls are invisible, and sometimes I see objects through walls or rocks.
This happens if you didn't set the correct AA settings in your graphics drivers, and the Fallout.ini file. See correct settings here: (LINK)

 

6 - the screen is WAY too dark.
This happens if you didn't disable the Steam overlay. Go to the game settings in Steam, and set Fallout: New Vegas to run without overlay.

 

7 - I can't see any difference in the graphics, even though I installed the ENB settings.
This happens if you have missing/incorrect ini settings, or if you didn't disable AA in the driver settings. Correct settings can be found here.

8 - Random textures are invisible?
There are a few reasons why this can happen:
1 - If AA has not been disabled in the driver settings or in the Fallout.ini file. Correct settings can be found here. (LINK)
2 - If the memory settings has not been set correctly in the enblocal.ini file. Correct settings can be found here. (LINK)
3 - If something went wrong during texture installation.

 

9 - Some NPCs have pink hair or cloths/armor.
This can happen if an NPC is missing a texture. This happens either if something went wrong during installation of the specific NPC mod, or if not all the recommended texture resource mods (Base textures) were installed correctly, as some NPC's depend on these.
It could also be due to incorrect load-order. See load-order here (LINK)

 

10 - Most NPCs face color doesn't match their body.
Same reasons as number 9.

 

11 - Some NPCs face color doesn't match their body.
This is due to incorrect match between head/body color code. The only fix for this, is not to install any face/body textures, and therefore no head/body model replacers either. In my personal opinion, the default models and textures are extremely bland, so I much rather have a few NPCs with a slight mismatch between head/body color, than having every single character in the game look boring. But that's a matter of taste. If the few color mismatches are too annoying for your eye, then simply uninstall the character model replacer and the character textures.

 

12 - Everything is too dark, or everything is too bright?
Every monitor is different, and everyone has different display settings, so what looks good on one monitor, might look too dark or too bright on another. Instead of changing your monitor settings, this can easily be changed within the ENB.
Open up the ENB settings in-game (Shift+Enter), and find "Brightness". Change the value so it matches your monitor and personal preference.

 

13 - I can't find the download link on Boris's website. Where is it?
First click the latest version to get to the download page. Now scroll to the very bottom, and the download link will be a tiny square. I know, not the first place people look, and I would certainly have put it somewhere else, but that's Boris's choice.

 

14 - The game crashes before the menu, or right after loading/starting a new game.
This is due to incorrect load-order. See load-order here (LINK)

 

15 - How does FNV Sexual Innuendo work?
The mod only makes it possible to have adult interaction with the girls from the casinos. Before that can happen, the mod needs to be setup in-game.
Bring up the Pipboy, and go to Items, Aid, and choose "::wSex Settings::". Then a small menu will appear. Select "Settings".

  

Now choose NVSE, and set NVSE to "1". This will activate more options. ..Choose any view option.

  

Then proceed to "Undressing method", and select "Equip default body". It's the only option I find is always working.

  

*If the scenes don't match because of different body sizes, bring up the menu again and go to "Alignment Fix".

  

*If you want a mod that works with every single NPC, try Animated Prostitution instead (LINK)
