    I thought a new dll out there solved the issues with lowering shaders and junk?

    woohaa thy Legendare Deathclaw has fallen :D .50 cal sniper rocks. i bought it for 550 caps or something and repaired it to almost perfect condition using repair kits i made. and stay out of vault 34 and camp searchlight unless your rad immune ( :p ) or if you have 20 rad aways or something, those places are just insanely radiated -.-

    Camp Searchlight only has a Fire Axe and a Chinese Book. Vault34 however is full of weapons :D

    You'll need loads. That place is full of Ghouls and 4+ Rads. It also takes awhile to get into the armoury. Bets to pack 15 RadAways and an Advanced Rad Suit. Also, you'll need a shotgun or powerful Melee weapon.

    The author appears to have carefully chosen the word "can"; the vast majority of users will see little or no difference in image quality (including myself, after closely analyzing/comparing my own screenshots). Either that, or he hasn't tried the DLL fix himself and is completely oblivious.

    Like what?

    The author seems to have little PC gaming experience/understanding. Game patches and driver updates that generate massive performance gains are by no means unusual in PC gaming.

    Reducing shaders is like the whole argument of DX9 vs DX10 vs DX11, bigger number = better if you can run it without a performance hit in my books, at the very least it won't look any worse :). The guy already said try to use the official patches when they come out. He is careful in his wording because nothing is hardly ever set in stone. Long term problems may possibly arise from such things as perhaps an official patch coming out later that all these people with the modded dll files in their directories may have major problems with.

    DLL Fix vs Temo

    Just ran four benchmarks to compare the temo setting. Found a spot that taxes the system more than the Ultra-Luxe location I was using before.

    Relevant details out of the way here:
    CPU: i5 750 @ 4.0GHz
    GPUs: 2x stock clocked 5870s, CrossFireX
    RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600

    Anti-aliasing: 8 samples
    Anisotropic Filtering: 15 samples
    Detail: Ultra
    Resolution: 1600x1200
    Screen Effects: HDR
    Vertical Sync: No

    Location: player stationary in corner of Gomorrah casino
    NPCs present: 14

    Benched With: Fraps, one minute each
    Notes: Turned on god mode, and set FOV to 180 and backed into a corner to make sure everyone was in view. All NPCs hostile, most firing automatic weapons.

    MinFPS AvgFPS MaxFPS StDev
    1 No DLL Fix 13 24 44 7
    2 No DLL Fix, temo 19 34 43 5
    3 w\DLL Fix 34 43 52 3
    4 w\DLL Fix, temo 30 44 53 4


    Tossed in the standard deviation numbers for perspective and as a microstutter measure (lower = more consistent framerate). That and the minimum framerate are where the DLL Fix really proved its worth. The DLL Fix + temo numbers seemed like a fluke to me so I re-ran all tests and got identical results. Toggling temo can definitely help though. Bench spanned about 2000 frames.

    Moon, some nice screens there, the interiors look much better than I would have expected. And I see your using that UI mod, I can't remember the name, but thats very good looking, I had to have a UI mod for FO3 to shrink it, F:NV's UI seems smaller, but that one pops out a bit, like a 3D effect on it, it's really sharp.

    ^^ There are not many mods out yet compared to FO3 obviously, but a few decent ones already. I'm using Better Binoculars, FOOK NV, MTUI, and URWLNV with no problems. Can post some screens later.

    So far so good, but I just started the game and am only at the point where I killed the geckos. However, till now no issues and no crashes.......
    Game runs quite smooth on ultra (AAx2) 2560x1440, fps around the 60 capped going to 45-55 occasionally low as 35 during fights I think.

    Here are some screenshots (large hence the spoiler tags) ;)

    You should buy a console. Every single game you play is broken.

    yea i have and ive worked but like i said all that for nothing since all my saves are useless

    actually i have a few games that play just fine surprisingly

    no major issues with Oblivion or Fallout 3 both after tweaking the game engine run without issue

    Metro 2033 runs fine no issues on my end

    along with most of the Total war games etc

    then again most of the games i have issues with are still playable and the only other game i know of with save issues is Empire total war but that game just didnt grab my attention so i didnt care lol but considering i put in as much time as i did only to get cockblocked due to game issues meh maybe its time i just give up gaming would give me more time to work and make more money
