***After the 1.2 patch I no longer use this. I suggest you also try the game again without.***

"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.






==================================

-use winrar to unpack file

Works with Ati and Nvidia however, for ATI cards to use transparency AA.

cheers to Aleksei for his work.

=================================

Drop in "fallout new vegas" folder to force the game to use this dll instead.

If in right place launcher rescans/defaults settings. (After it defaults settings and shows as a "7900" or "8600" if you use 2nd file then *** remember to redo your preferred graphics settings.***)

I have a quad core/5870/8gb ram and perf was awful until I did this. I instantly got 4x framerate during "goodsprings event."

===============================================

-sometimes crashes with 2 monitors

-most people report crashes with crossfire or SLI

-usually crashes with XFIRE
possible fix in XFIRE= (Tools>options>'game' tab)
Then click on the checkbox 'Disable Xfire in game'.

-2nd file does not work on my ATI 5870 it may work better for you.

===============================================

uininstall*
It does not change/replace any files just delete this one file and the game will go back to using the normal one in windows directory.

*notes*
-If you are having crashes simply delete it. IFF you are still having crashes then obviously this was not the cause. (does this even need to be said?)

-this game is only dx 9 there are no dx 10 or dx 11 features.

-may crash during final cinematic (simply remove this single .dll file when you get near the ending)
