F.N.B.P. ENB Settings
If you only want to use the ENB, not the recommended mods, please note the
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
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
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:
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:
*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.
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
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
