100% Fix for Bad PC Preformance!!! Fallout New Vegas

After hours of searching I Finally found a fix that actually works, the problem is the game was not optimized at all for directx 11 cards, so in turn it runs terrible.

Follow this link

http://www.highdefforum.com/gaming-s...fix-100-a.html


Download the .dll file

Put it here:

Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas

and restart steam and fallout

You will see that the game wants to optimize your video settings again, just change it to what you want and that's it!!

The game now works like it should, no thanks to the devs...

please post your results everyone!!

This absoutely improved my frames, especially around clusters of NPCs. I still have all the settings on highest the way I like them, but my frames still improved noticably.

Thanks.

Umm this was already posted in several threads, but as long as the info gets out I guess. I wish people would learn to search.

Since people don't ever learn anything, it's probably not too bad an idea to fill up the entire front page with threads about this

Kahless 1701 my best advice would be for you to go to Bethesda tech forum and post a dxdiag and possibly temps.

I was using this file but now whenever I try to load into the game it boots me to the desktop almost immediately, I can't even get to the bethesda opening slide. when I remove the d3d9.dll it loads for me....looks like i won't be playing with a smooth framerate after all.....this fix was working for me earlier today. dammit.

This was a huge boost in performance for me. Especially in areas heavily populated with npcs.

The .dll managed to increase my framerate considerably, but I still get jitters every now and then.

Big improvement here. Valve Mods should add this to a sticky somewhere.

ya the fallout engine is still not perfect... but this just goes to show that its not your hardware that matters a lot of the times, its the terrible coding that a lot of devs now a days do, I mean it took a 3kb file to fix the frame rate from 20 to 60.... what else could devs mess up just to make a quick buck

This doesn't appear to have worked for me so i wouldn't call it a 100% fix :P Also without even reading i could tell it wouldn't work, theres no such thing as a 100% fix for ALL bad performance.

I still get a bit of fps lag, but its only around the strip that it becomes pretty bad. The game doesn't lose frames it just goes in to literal slow motion. It's like Painkiller where the engine thinks it should be drawing 30/60 frames a "second" and however long it takes to draw that many frames is one game "second". And in between frames something in slowing the code down.
