Setup Fallout 4: tweaks and fixes

Настройка Fallout 4: твики и фиксы

Tips on setting up and configuring Fallout 4.

If your game crashes on launch

For some users, Fallout 4 crashes when the game starts. This can be fixed by running the game in windowless borderless mode. You need to do the following: prefs.ini file in documents / users / mygames / fallout4 and in steamapps / common / fallout4 .

Set the following values ​​(resolution is what you need):

  • bMaximizeWindow = 1
  • bBorderless = 1
  • bFull Screen = 0
  • iSize H = 1080
  • iSize W = 1920

FPS unlock

For some, the maximum number of frames per second is 30, for some it is 60. Below is a guide on how to unlock the FPS. Warning: it is not advisable to unblock it above 60, as there were bugs in Skyrim (flying animals, etc.)

Open Fallout4Pref.ini (located in C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \. It’s not necessary to make a backup - if you delete Fallout4Pref.ini, the game will automatically create it the next time you launch it .

Find the line iPresentInterval = 1 and change it to iPresentInterval = 0

Next - to use vertical sync, go to the nvidia control panel or equivalent for amd cards and turn it on there.

Turn off mouse acceleration

It looks like mouse acceleration is the default setting for Fallout 4. To disable it, we need to do the same thing that we did in Skyrim.

Open Fallout4.ini C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \

In the [Controls] section, add a new line: bMouseAcceleration = 0

Warning: acceleration will not be removed from the various menus, but will be disabled "inside" the game.

How to disable the intro when loading the game

Solution 1: To skip the intro every time you download Fallout 4, go to the Steam folder where you installed the game steamapps \ common \ Fallout 4 \ Data \ Video and delete the following file: GameIntro_V3_B.bk2. I recommend making a backup for it, however, you can always check the integrity of the game files using the appropriate Steam function. However, recovering a file from backup is faster.

Solution 2: First go to C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \ and open Fallout4.ini. In the [General] section, add SIntroSequence = 1. Then in the same folder, open Fallout4Prefs.ini and add again SIntroSequence = 1 in the [General] section.

You should now have the intro video turned off.

Bug with an invisible pick.

If you have a bug with an invisible master key, the solution is quite simple, open Fallout4Prefs.ini in the folder (C: \ Users \ [name] \ Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \) and change the [Display] below:

  • iSize W = XXXX
  • iSize H = YYYY
on:
  • iSize W = XXXX-1
  • iSize H = YYYY-1

For example: iSize W = 1920, iSize H = 1080 will be replaced by iSize W = 1919, iSize H = 1079

Then do the same for Fallout4Prefs.ini, which is located in your Fallout 4 folder on Steam - steamapps \ common \ Fallout 4 \ Fallout 4.

This bug is quite common if you unlock FPS and do not enable vertical sync.

How to change fov

Unlike Skyrim, Fallout 4 requires a bit more action. It is required to make a change to 3 different files, 2 of them are Fallout4Prefs.ini in two different folders, and one is Fallout4.ini

First open the Fallout4.ini C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \ and in the [Display] section add the following lines:

  • fDefaultWorldFOV = XX
  • fDefault1stPersonFOV = XX
Where XX is the desired parameter fov. I think 90 is suitable for most, but this is for your taste.

Then open Fallout4Prefs.ini in C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \ and do the same thing you did above.

In the [Display] section, add the lines:

  • fDefaultWorldFOV = XX
  • fDefault1stPersonFOV = XX
Where XX is the desired parameter fov. I think 90 is suitable for most, but this is for your taste.

Then go to the installation folder in Steam - steamapps \ common \ Fallout 4 \ Fallout4 and open Fallout4Prefs.ini. There also add to the [Display] section

  • fDefaultWorldFOV = XX
  • fDefault1stPersonFOV = XX

Note that the fov options in the [Interface] section of Fallout 4.ini do not need to be changed.

If it seems to you that your pip-boy is too small, press ~, then type fov XX, where XX is the smaller value of your choice. This FOV will not affect your game, but will affect the size of your pip-fight. If the key does not work, change the settings for the keys for the console.

How to add support 21: 9 (ultrawide)

To make your game go to 21: 9 without problems, open Fallout4Prefs.ini in the C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \ folder and change the following lines to the values ​​below:

  • bTopMostWindow = 1
  • bMaximizeWindow = 1
  • bBorderless = 1
  • bFull Screen = 0
  • iSize H = XXXX
  • iSize W = YYYY
Where XXXX is your horizontal resolution, and YYYY is your vertical resolution.

Next, do the same for the second Fallout4Prefs.ini, which is in steamapps \ common \ Fallout 4 \ Fallout.

HUD will stretch a bit, but this is a good start.

Unlock console

Some users report that the console does not work for them by default (and nothing happens when you press the tilde ~). If it works, then you do not need to do anything. To fix this, go to the windows languages ​​panel and change the layout to English.

Another solution would be to use the @ key.

At the moment it can help you.

Invisible menu mouse

The most common solution for this, if you have a gamepad connected, is to disconnect it.

Alternatively: Open Fallout4Prefs.ini (C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \) and change the following line: bGamepadEnable = 1 to bGamepadEnable = 0

Vertical and horizontal mouse movements are different.

If you don't like it, you can fix it quickly. Just open Fallout4.ini (C: \ Users \ [name] \ My Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4 \) and change the following: fMouseHeadingYScale = .021 to fMouseHeadingYScale = .03738

This should work on permissions 16: 9

Power armor ID and spawn

I decided to single out a separate topic for power armor. It is called by the team player.placeatme ID, where ID:

  • 00249849 - Paladin Dance Power Armor Without Helmet
  • 0022b5e5 - Paladin Dans x01 power armor without a helmet
  • 00225a5f - bare power armor frame
  • 0021e09c - Raiders power armor (helmet and hands)

INI - setting and improving graphics

This information will give you the first glimpse of ini tuning for better graphics — thicker grass, farther visibility, no items coming from nowhere, and so on. Please note that for their use you must have a good configuration that pulls the game at high settings or higher. Also, the instruction will help those who want the opposite, reduce the minimum values ​​for performance.

Go to: C: \ Users \ YourUserName \ Documents \ My Games \ Fallout4

There you will find the Fallout4.ini and Fallout4Prefs.ini configuration files, which can be modified with any text editor.

Be sure to make backups before changing.

The author had no problems when he set double values ​​(where they can be set) and the value of shadows on 8192 - on geforce 970 everything worked without stuttering. Experiment with your map.

Fallout4.Ini

[General] uGridsToLoad = 5 - Installations 7,9,11,13 improve landscape visibility. Consider that this is dangerous - there were bugs in Skyrim and a save cleaner was required to come back. The value of 7 worked without problems, but note that they can occur.

uExterior Cell Buffer = 36 - This variable controls the number of cells that are loaded into the memory buffer to provide a smoother transition and increase stability.

[Display] fShadowLODMaxStartFade = 1000.0 - Draws shadows for distant objects. Values ​​of 10,000 and even 20,000 work.

fSpecularLODMaxStartFade = 2000.0 - Draws lighting for remote objects. Values ​​of 10,000 and even 20,000 work.

iShadowMapResolutionPrimary = 2048 - Shadow resolution. You can change to 4096 or 8192. 8192 works fine with the author of the tutorial.

fSAORadius = 108.2, fSAOBias = 0.6, fSAOIntensity = 7.1 - Settings for FSAO.

[SSSSS] fSSSSSPower = 4.0 - Probably subsurface power, enhancing it. Needs testing.

[Interface] fDefaultWorldFOV = 70, fDefault1stPersonFOV = 80 - Changes the field of view

[Grass] iMinGrassSize = 20 - A lower value will give you thicker grass.

[Water] bReflectLODObjects = 0, bReflectLODLand = 0, bReflectSky = 0, bReflectLODTrees = 0 - 1 activates reflections.

Fallout4Prefs.ini

[Display] iShadowMapResolution = 4096 - Once again - the resolution of the shadows can be changed to 8192

fLeafAnimDampenDistEnd = 4600.0000, fLeafAnimDampenDistStart = 3600.0000 - Leaf animation distance

fMeshLODLevel2FadeTreeDistance = 2048.0000, fMeshLODLevel1FadeTreeDistance = 2844.0000 - Distance and disappearance levels of tree models. Can be increased by a couple of thousand.

fInteriorMeshLODLevel2FadeDist = 1950.0000, fInteriorMeshLODLevel1FadeDist = 2600.0000 - Distances, which models in the premises will deteriorate in quality and disappear. You can set values ​​up to 5000.

iMaxSkinDecalsPerFrame = 25, iMaxDecalsPerFrame = 100 - Blood Bursts?

[General] uGridsToLoad = 5 - This value has already been, put the same value

[Particles] iMaxDesired = 750, Particles - the higher, the steeper the picture.

[TerrainManager] fTreeLoadDistance = 75000.0000, fBlockMaximumDistance = 250000.0000, fBlockLevel2Distance = 110000.0000, fBlockLevel1Distance = 90000.0000, fBlockLevel0Distance = 60000.0000 - Display distance for trees and objects. Increase proportionally. For the author, multiplication by 2 worked.

[Grass] fGrassStartFadeDistance = 7000.0000, fGrassMaxStartFadeDistance = 7000.0000, fGrassMinStartFadeDistance = 1000.0000 - Grass display distance. 25000 worked for the author

[Decals] uMaxDecals = 1000, uMaxSkinDecals = 100 - Higher - cooler.
