    For Fallout 4:
    I need some help. I recently changed to Mod Organizer 2 since its faster. But when I set up F4SE for it, my "CustomControlMap.txt" doesnt load or show up in "DATA>F4SE" anymore and the controls are all reverted back to where they were by default. Ive also tried to look in my INI files for the game, but none of them even references a single key.

    Ended up not working for me, went through the uninstall process and tried to open FO4, fails to open. I get a prompt from windows asking if I want to allow the fallout4.exe launcher to make changes to my drive, I click yes, and the launcher for fallout 4 pops back up.

    Tried uninstalling fo4 from steam, then reinstalled it, same issue. This sucks :(.


    #########
    # UPDATE #
    #########
    I fixed the resolution issue on my desktop for Fallout 4.
    Long story short: I uninstalled fo4 from my game drive, created a new steam folder in my working drive (separate internal SSD for work files), installed fo4 inside this new steam folder, and then launched fo4 through the geforce experience application since my GPU is a GTX 1080 ti. This brought up the normal fo4 launcher, I changed the resolution settings and then closed and reopened them to verify that the changes were saved, and it now works.

    People with AMD GPU's, not sure what to tell you, maybe they have a similar application to geforce experience.

    Lessons learned: Dont run mods that openly state that they will make changes to the windows registry, I will probably never be able to run fo4 on my main game drive again, I just so happen to have multiple SSD's in my pc that I could move that specific game to. It may or may not be this mods fault, maybe I was just stupid and didn't read some of the instructions carefully; regardless, registry changes are a powerful way of doing things that I am not smart enough to fix my self and are better left untouched.

    People with only one drive in their pc might be able to partition their single drive into 2 separate partitions so your computer sees the one drive as 2 drives. Give the new partition the same amount of size as fo4 requires (steam tells me its 86GB, but I have all the fo4 DLC so...give it 100GB just to be safe.)

      I can't get this mod to work for me either. It keeps saying "Unable to detect Game Install directory."

      Had same issue initially. Was because I had all of my games on a separate drive instead of C drive. After I pointed it to the correct path it found it, then when I clicked play game it would have the issue I mentioned in above post. The weird thing is, I only have the fallout 4 screen resolution issue on my self built pc, my old mobile workstation laptop has never had this issue. My advice? Give up on this tool, due to the tools innate use of registry changes I am not sure if I will ever be able to get fallout 4 to launch on my desktop again.

    You can use this tool from inside Mod Organizer 2!

    Had some conflicts myself, saw a few posts about it, and did some work on it, so decided to share my findings here. Basically this tool by default mods the game's actual .ini's, whereas MO2 creates different .ini's to use with the profiles you create inside it. We want to use MO's ability to install/streamline lots of mods but also use the config tool's great ability to optimize the .ini's.

    So we just turn off MO's custom profile .ini's, which forces it to use the actual ones. Pretty easily done, just click on the Configure Profile button inside MO and then untick the box for "Use profile-specific Game INI files", and then delete MO's custom ones when it asks you (if you want to keep them, I'd recommend backing them up and moving them elsewhere).

    After that, you can go to this tool (installed as recommended), run it, and leave "Set INI to Read Only after Saving" unchecked. Then just add this tool as an executable in MO (let it run in it's own directory), then boom! You have your mods, you start the F4CT inside MO, tweak your stuff, then start the game! Saves everything, no conflicts, best of both worlds.

      Handy post! But there's another way of using this tool with MO2 if you want to use MO2 profile specific ini settings:

      Open this tool
      Navigate to settings
      Set your INI Location to wherever you MO2 to save your profiles, and select fallout4.ini

      Works a charm, and you keep your original ini settings untouched.

      @0banon, I was trying to do this but since I changed the ini location now I cant keep Invalidate Archives activated. Please explain how you got it working?

      make sure your INI's are set to read only big dog, its probably being reset constantly

      Good find! I haven't used MO2 as I was away from modding for awhile (life stuff) and decided to give Vortex a try on coming back in instead of MO2. Pretty good, but I'm a bit of a power user, like seeing everything and that's just easier in MO, so I might end up switching back, but I'll remember this, thanks!

    I very rarely have to mess with my ini files. So my main reason for installing was so that I could easily change the horrendous default dysentery yellow colour for HUD and PIpboy while wearing power armour , endorsed!

    Does F4SE still work properly since this uses a difference .exe file?

      Yes. This does not modify the game's executable, but rather the launcher.

    When I click on "Edit Inis Directly" it opens two Fallout4Prefs.inis - why is that so?

    Is there an option to change the FOV for first person ADS (aim down sights)? If not, would you add one? If you wont add an option could someone direct me as to how I can change it myself? I use see through combat scopes. With an FOV of 110 (my fav) the first person ADS is inverted, meaning the the frame itself is upside down. When I change the FOV to 100 the ADS zooms WAY to far into the scope. I know this is an FOV thing which is why I'm asking here rather than over on STCS.

    All that being said, this tool is dope and I'm excited to be using it, thank you so much! (:

      (sorry for my English)
      I found a fix some time ago. Cant give any direct credits, but I found it on Steam Forums.

      Open console

      fov 80 110
      saveini

      Close console

      The first parameter will control the field of view of the opened pip boy and the second will control the field of view of your first person walk about. You can change them a little to suit you.

      Do not sure how it will works with See Through Combat Scopes, but works fine in Vanila game.
