F.N.B.P. ENB Settings

If you only want to use the ENB, not the recommended mods, please note the following:
For the ENB to look as intended, please use Interior Fog Remover (LINK), and FNV Realistic Wasteland Lighting (LINK).
*Changing weather/lighting mods won't impact your save-games, and can be installed/uninstalled at any time without problems.
 


Installing ENB & the FNBP ENB Settings


1 - Download the official ENB files

ENB Download site: (LINK)
*Download latest version
Unpack the file and copy the content of the "WrapperVersion" folder, into the Fallout: New Vegas game-folder. If asked, overwrite any existing files.
 

2 - Download Fallout NV Beautification Project ENB Settings

Fallout NV Beautification Project ENB Settings: (LINK)
Unpack the file into the Fallout: New Vegas game-folder. When asked, overwrite any existing files.

*Alternative download mirror: (DOWNLOAD)
 

3 - Disable the Steam Overlay

Obviously this only applies for the Steam version of the game. If the Steam Overlay is enabled, the game will start up with excessive contrast. Normal contrast may apply after entering another cell in-game, but it's not guaranteed. Turning the Steam Overlay off is the best solution.

 


Setting up ENB


The only thing you need to setup, is indicating how much video memory ENB can use. The settings are pre-made for systems with Nvidia GeForce 10 series Graphics cards. If you have a GTX 1060, 1070 or 1080, you don't need to change anything. Skip to the next step instead.

If you have an older nVidia graphics card, these setting most likely work as well, but if they don't, the ENB might not be able to auto-detect you memory. In that case, you will be notified at game launch, and you will have to open the Fallout: New Vegas game-folder, and then open the "enblocal.ini" file with a notepad.

Find the following lines:
VideoMemorySizeMb=0

Change the zero value to equal the amount of video memory your system has, minus 384MB.
For instance, if you have 4BG video memory, the number will be: 4095 - 384 = 3712, and the line should look like this:
VideoMemorySizeMb=3712

*If you are not sure how much video memory your graphics card has, use this tool made by Boris Vorontsov. (LINK)

If you don't have a nVidia Graphics card, you can use this ENBoost Tool to determine your "enblocal.ini" settings.

 


Proceed to Tweaks




 

If you want to play with the ENB setting yourself, you can do so by editing the "enbseries.ini" file with a notepad, or you can edit them in-game, by pressing shift+enter. A word of advise before starting. ENB contains a LOT of environmental settings, which all differ with time of day, location, time of year and different types of weather. When changing settings in one location, it might have unforeseen effects somewhere else, so it's a good idea to test ONE changes at a time, and in different environment. Messing everything up is VERY easy, trust me on this one. It is very time consuming to test this amount of settings in all different environments and times, but it's absolutely necessary if you want a great looking ENB. If you don't have time for testing, I strongly advise not to play around with the environmental settings. However, if you do have the time, by all means, I would LOVE to receive ideas for improvements and better settings, and incorporate them into this project. (Please write me on the Nexus Blog)
