Hi Guys, If you've been gaming Fallout New Vegas and having performance issues in crowded areas (I'm sure u would), then there is an unofficial fix. THe Fix All u gotta do is put this dll in the same folder as Fallout New vegas (not in any subfolders, in the main folder itself) and start the game, The NV launcher will reset saying new config found or something. For NVIDIA cards the fix can be found here Nvidia d3d9 perf fix at Fallout New Vegas Nexus - New Vegas mods and community For ATI cards the fix is here Alternate D3D9 fix for ATI plus Generator at Fallout New Vegas Nexus - New Vegas mods and community What the Fix does "This .dll file is essentially a light-wrapper for a 'supported' video card's .dll, which tricks the game into configuring its FaceGen software (which was causing a performance problem) in a more efficient manner." (HT @ "4000qails") This will make your game run nearly like fallout 3 ran on your same computer. Like it should since there was very little visual improvements. Apparently the idiots who made Fallout New Vegas didn't test it or something coz every machine out there is having this issue. The Fallout engine isn't heavy, yet the issues prop up. Until an official patch does something about this, this is ur only option. I can assure u this works as I was on the New Vegas Strip and the game slow down quite a bit, it becomes choppy! After I tinkered with settings to Low and 800 X 600 res on a 260GTX with Phenom X4 940, the problem still wasn't resolved. I knew the issue was the stupidly coded game. I just put the dll and hope and prayed and voila, no choppiness! ...Questions I had in Mind before using the dll fix... Does this affect other games? Of course not, it is only put in the Fallout New Vegas folderÃ¢â‚¬Â¦duh. Does it reduce the ugly mugs of the NPC? U mean does it change anything on the faces in the gameÃ¢â‚¬Â¦NOPE. Even if it does, it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t observable. I played the game for 10 hours or so after the dll fix and didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find any change in the already ugly NPC faces. Will it ruin my saves? Of course not, it has nothing to do with it. But since the game has that issue (so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve heard but not personally encountered), just copy the save games in a different location after playing. This is my general habit for RPGÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s actually!
