    Umm I'm not quite sure with that :laugh: ... it caught me out as the DLL fix is called something similar.

    It happens I found this weird heart which kinda sticks out totally out of context from the whole NV theme lol:

    Here it appears better, and to the far-mid-right on the mid of the screen there's some secret cave (haven't got inside yet)

    Yeah, BP there are lots of secret rock containers marked with hearts, bombs, guns, casino logos, etc, all over the wasteland. They have stuff in them too, like 10 x 9mm ammo and lockpick or something.

    v 1.2.0.315 is finally out, but only for xbox for now? yay, now let's see what happens...

    I've concluded that the freezing I get in VATS modes didn't have anything to do with the previous update - if I play with the disk in the drive they're minimal, if I play without the disk in the drive VATS is unplayable. Weird..

    It seems Brush Gun and V.A.T.S. sometimes still make things weird :p

    remove the DX9 fix load your save move a few feet save the game then quit and relaunch the game see what the performance is like if its bad re apply DX9 fix and your good to go

    ive had to do that above method after every patch to get things working properly

    Try firing with the Brush Gun in this manner: alternate V.A.T.S. and real-time shooting. Use one bullet for each from the Brush Gun. :p

    Never had to use that DX9 fix (which is that .dll file I assume?).

    To fix the crazy mouse go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas, open fallout_default.ini with notepad,

    and put this at the bottom of the "Controls" section:

    fForegroundMouseAccelBase=0
    fForegroundMouseAccelTop=0
    fForegroundMouseBase=0
    fForegroundMouseMult=0


    _________________________________________

    I must say that I'm blessing this patch so far, I tested it though only for 5 minutes before making this post :ohwell: and V.A.T.S. is functioning fine remaining at 60fps now even when I go to the worse place (Mojave Outpost) and vats-zoom on radscorpions some 100 meters away :rockout:

    Can I ask here how I install high-res texture mods?
    And can someone link me to one (I found one but I couldn't get it to work)

    Try here.
    Normally you just paste the file into the Data directory, but make sure you read the instructions lest something might be different!

    Now I can't figure out why my Fallout.exe is saying it's the v 1.2.0.314 version...:twitch: I've been reading everywhere that the version should be v 1.2.0.315 :confused:

    I was just planning to install that mod myself!

    I haven't downloaded it yet but from what I understand it's the same as all other texture mods, you just Ctrl-C the files and Ctrl-V them into the data folder (here:C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas\Data), saying yes if it asks you anything.
