I thought a new dll out there solved the issues with lowering shaders and junk?
woohaa thy Legendare Deathclaw has fallen .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 ( ) 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
wow seriously, i wont return to searchlight then. but that vault 34 seems interesting . but i only have 3 rad aways :shadedshu
I just picked this game up, can't wait to get some playing in.
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.
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
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.
No DLL Fix
No DLL Fix, temo
w\DLL Fix, temo
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.
well i have good weapons. riot shotty, 12.7 MM SMG, top condition and a 100% cz something minigun, LMG. i also have some other weapons but these ones are the best for close range. so i only need a radsuit as i only have combat armour mk2 now.
btw, how do you get power armour(training)
well i hit a new snag after using the CS to fix the casino issues i had i managed to get to the end game and i sided with yesman well before moving on to the full end game i have to defend guess who at the dam well thats what im suppose to do to bad every fucking save game i have results in the game instantly crashing thats 30+ save games not a god damn one of them works cant even start a new game and save im done with this shit New Vegas can go into the trash at this point im tired of having to fix every fucking bug myself via the CS so i can play and now i cant play at all waste of $50
power armor you get from the companion Gannon or from the Brotherhood of steel
Hmmm, i ain't had one issue. No crashes in 30 hours... lol.
im demanding steam refund me for this shovel ware ive had enough fixing shit in the CS i paid to play the game not fix the damn thing. I doubt theyll refund me tho but we shall see you can be sure ill never buy a product with Obsidians name on it again lol if i do ill drive a nail through my hand again
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.
haha boone made me hostile to Legion ah well hated them anyways. but they liked me xD
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)
well i got the game running again but in order to do so i had to lose 65hrs of progress i dont even have the desire to play the game anymore
65hours? You slept recently?
You should buy a console. Every single game you play is broken.
Lulz. You should hear him on teamspeak.
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
So is it only really fucking up on ATi cards??
I remember I had major crashes when they came out with The Old Republic 2.....drove me insane!
Not in my experience. I've been playing many hours without issue.
Ive yet to crash.. and with the dll fix i run fine at 1920x1080 with everything max
