New Vegas stability/anti-crashing mods and improvements
UPDATE 2021: This thread now has a lot of older, possibly broken fixes. I’d recommend using this guide instead to start off with: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2373580270

I’ll keep the below for posterity, or for anyone using older operating systems.

Hello! New Vegas is a great, but now pretty old game, that didn't run all that well when it came out, and is now only more crashy on modern systems.

Listed below are the best and most used fixes for loads of issues, including:

-Infinite Loading Screens
-Saving and loading crashes crashes
-Out of memory crashes
-General random crashes

And many more!


New Vegas Script Extender[nvse.silverlock.org] is needed for the below fixes to work. It is also needed for most other mods, so you should install it first. You will need 7-Zip[www.7-zip.org] in order to extract NVSE.

New Vegas Anti Crash[www.nexusmods.com] is the real important one for having a crash-free life. Fixes a bunch of things and drastically improves the stability of the game.. If you are experiencing crashes, this is the first thing you should try. If you have the infinite loading screen bug, this combined with the Script Extender fixes it.

New Vegas Stutter Remover[www.nexusmods.com] removes stuttering from the game, not that it's name would imply that. Check it's readme for further tweaks, as it default to 30 FPS and also provides a few extra easy fixes to make the game much smoother

Fallout 4GB Executable **Updated Version**[www.nexusmods.com] New Vegas can only use 2GB of RAM by default, fine for the vanilla game but rapidly runs out when you load a hundred mods. This mod doubles that so you won't get so many CTD's with a heavy mod load order (especially HD textures). It also loads NVSE automatically.

CASM (Save file organizer)[www.nexusmods.com] is a mod that disable the auto-saves, which bloat immensely and causes bugs and crashes the bigger they gert. This will prevent exactly that happening and replace the buggy auto-saves and quick saves with more stable auto-manualbutnotreally-saves.

Yukichigai Unofficial Patch[www.nexusmods.com], or YUP, is, amazingly enough, a patch for the game not produced by the team at Obsidian. It fixes a crazy amount of bugs that were missed by the dev team. Pretty much essential to any load order.

Read the readme/mod page/comments of each page before downloading! They will tell you how to install as well as known bugs and incompatibilities. Always try sifting through their comments sections first before asking for help!

Read all of their descriptions and install instructions to ensure you get them to work correctly. I use all of these and never experience any crashes or stutters hundreds of hours into a save.

Bump. It would be useful for a lot of people I think for this to get pinned.

gonna use these as soon as it finishes downloading for me, also bump in case other folks could do same,

A similar post for Fallout 3 was pinned, but that had more problems.

A pinned mod fixes page is always nice tho.

Cheers. If you got Fallout 3, have you heard of the Tale of Two Wastelands mod? It adds 3 to new Vegas as an expansion so it's like both games in one, with you starting in DC and able to take a train to Nevada.

It's a good mod for people who can't fun 3 but can run New Vegas, or don't like Games For Windows Live, as it runs through New Vegas which uses Steamworks.

I am having a problem with the game crashing sometimes when I fast travel between locations. Any fixes that someone can recommend?
baddude1337 Jun 28, 2014 @ 6:21am 
Have you tried any of the above?

would the anti-crash help if the game is crashing to desktop without error messages after about 20 min

Question: I want to use the anti save corruption mod but it says to use in a manager. I have the nvse.exe. anti-stutter, anti-crash & 4gb mod running which I need to load through the 4gb.exe. If I run the game starting with 4gb.exe how do I incorporate the anti save corruption mod?

Best ask on the mod page for CASM. I personally don't use it.

Things that go BUMP in the night!

I also use ALL these fixes and i havent had a single CTD.
I strongly recommend using CASM and turning off all auto saves.
Will do, thanks!
