    game dosent support DX11 its DX9 shader model 2.0 only shader 3.0 effects are present but not used because just like in FO3 and Oblivion they never bothered to finished apply shader model 3.0 to all objects so the game is pretty much DX9.0b let alone 9.0c in terms of api its using

    These should work but I haven't verified:

    Boone: 96BCE.

    For ED-E, it depends.
    Non-upgraded ED-E: 1732cf.
    Armor-upgraded ED-E: 1732d0
    Weapon-upgraded ED-E: 1732d1.

    Info from the Fallout Wiki:
    Craig Boone | ED-E

    Yep—I should have mentioned that in my post. Did it work for you?

    BTW, I share your companions. They make for a good team of followers. :)

    yep they fixed it, got the two shits back.


    they work well... highlighted enemies when aiming + uber range for the 'radar' makes me very happy :D

    ^^ I agree with Mussels that the Spotter and Sensor perks you get with Boones and ED-E are major pluses ... but I haven't tried any other followers so I have no idea how they stack up. Wouldn't mind seeing a page comparing their stats (how much damage they can take and dish out, etc.) ... but overall, it's just fun playing with those two as companions. Boones is a good sniper and ED-E ... well I like the extra carrying capacity and hearing him buzz around haha.

    I miss Charon ... damn that ghoul's good with a shottie. :laugh:

    Also, I just realized some of the ambient music from Fallout 3 is in FONV. I recognized the cello part. Normally I have the radio on so I don't hear the ambient stuff ... some of it is downright creepy. :eek: But I like hearing that cello again.

    hmm lvl 20 rocks gotta love the explorer perk gives you every map marker you just gotta get there an explore funny thing is i STILL havent even entered New Vegas yet.

    Im 30hrs in rocking T51-B power armor + Anti Material rifle / Super Sledge just started using companions cassidy is useless late game but very very effective in the early game and her quests are badass to she also ties into Fallout 2 with the main companion to your Character overall the game is buggy as fuck but im greatly enjoying the tie-ins to the old Fallout lore


    looks like lvl 30 is the max lvl as well unlike the lvl 20 limit in Fo3 without expansions

    oh and...


    HAIL TO THE KING BABY!

    Interesting, the games called New Vegas, but if you havent entered there, how much of the storyline is really there?

    When u say buggy as fuck, is it as bad as it sounds ? Still debating on getting now or later. Really liked the Fallout series but I had no issues
    with any of them, like some people did.
    Just cant seem to pull the trigger :banghead: might have to put the gun down :D

    i like this game so far. but i get weird artifacts like you have when you are overclocking your vidcards too much. even when i am running at stock clocks. and even when i uncheck v-sync i still have the 60fps cap.

    please help. thanks

    don't have an answer except to say i don't artifact at all, with stock clocks. i have oced these cards before, and to a decent height - but not in months.

    i had it crash right after the intro mission , and i had the steam cloud save bug in the beginning (but that's fixed) other than that i have had no problems in 7 hours.

    its little bugs. things like someones head spinning in circles, or doing a quest backwards, or things like killing people you need to complete certain quests.

    the thing is, those are just how fallout is. killed someone important? well fuck, dont shoot everyone you see next time.

    yea hardcore mode = awesome but it takes getting use to and can be a giant pain in the ass but the immersion factor is worth it

    just make sure you have that pre order DLC with the water canteen, saves you from hassle with dehydration.
