A File of the Month
for March 2017

Thanks very much all.

This is a Place and Play, no adjustments required. It includes adjustments for graphics, memory and use with sweetfx. Also included are additional DX files and full sweetfx setup. Including my own Fallout3 settings file with in-game adjustments for all aspects of the game. For Vanilla or Modded games.

Minor update. I found a color setting was slightly off and made a colormatch download to allow for a choice of the two.
Only difference is the preset files.

To Install: Adjust location according to version - Steam, Retail or GOG

Download and extract to your game folder.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 3 goty

Download and open the New Vegas file.
Extract just the altd3d9 folder to your desktop or Fallout3 folder.
Select one of the 4 d3d9.dlls in the altd3d9 folder and place it in the game folder with the other files.
Try the Blackmesa first.

Start and play. (Adjust ingame settings)

To Uninstall: Simply goto the game folder and remove any file references (D3 or DX files, enb and sweetfx files)

If you experience a d3d11 error, to fix the d3d11 error you just rename the dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll


Additional Setups:

Nvidia Users. Enable DSR in your Nvidia control panel (as shown here), under the global settings. (I checked all the boxes to allow for all the resolutions).

ATI Users:
Enable VSR here.

If using DSR/VSR.

Open enbseries.ini in the game folder and change the line under [GLOBAL] AllowAntialias=1 to AllowAntialias=0.

Adjust ingame settings.

Alter resolution according to rig setup. I actually found the 2100x on a 1920x1080 monitor seemed to have the finest detail, but test for preference.
If you have a 4k monitor then use 4k setting.



Comparatives and ingame screenshots. 1.2 Colormatch download.
No Effects and Effects in that order.


Slight coloration difference. 1.1 Original colorset. Splitscreen and full effects.


Mod Information.

This is a combination of several different setting files and programs I found I could use with one another (after some adjustments) for Fallout 3.
This can be used in combination with any texture packs, DLC, mods or add-ons.
To make adjustments to ENB, alter the enbseries.ini configuration settings file, found in the main folder.
To make adjustments to Sweetfx, go to \SweetFX\Presets and alter the Fallout3.txt file.
The default settings file is located in the main folder, SweetFX_settings.txt. However, it is not used for the settings as the SweetFX_preset.txt file is directing it to the presets folder (alter to match, if you make change to location or name of settings file).

Using the Printscreen, will generate ingame screenshots.
They can be found placed in the game folder, where the files were placed.
Use FastStone Image Viewer, to convert them to jpg or other formats.

Use shift-f12 to disable/enable ENB effects.
Use PauseBreak to toggle sweetFX On/Off

Alter ENB and SweetFX settings as you like.
Full ENB Download available enbdev.com.
Full Sweetfx Download available here.
For further information check here.


Trouble Shooting: Mod

Install the DX9 final release if you haven't done so previously. DX9 Final Release June2010
DX install: Download and run the file, tell it to extract to c:\dx, then after goto c:\dx and run the dxsetup file.

Check to make sure you are using the newest graphics drivers.
Try disabling any turbo or overclocking software.

If you experience issues with the ENB D3D9 try this: CTD, Graphics issues.
Replace the d3d9.dll with one of the alternates in the altd3d9 folder from the ModDB download.

Nvidia users can also use this mod (Thanks to khalilsm) to allow the game to run if you have any issues.
Rename the ENB d3d9.dll that came with this mod to d3d9orig.dll and place the d3d9.dll from that mod with it in the game folder.

If using any forced settings through your graphics card, try disabling them.
