Videos of the Wasteland 2.X Installation


The way Videos of the Wasteland works is different since its 2.0 version. If you used a previous version of
VotW (1.7 or below) and if you want to update it to 2.X read the following instructions
else VotW 2.X may not work.

  • Install the VotW 1.7 Uninstaller
  • Launch your last save (it will tell you VotW is missing)
  • Wait for a message explaining that VotW has been uninstalled
  • Save the game
  • Uninstall VotW 1.7 and its uninstaller
  • Install VotW 2.X

If you never used Videos of the Wasteland before, you can install VotW 2.X
without following these instructions


Videos mod add-ons installation
Please install each add-ons one by one:
for each plug-in
, install it, load the game, save it and install the next plug-in.

If you don't do that, you may mess up the holotapes display order:
some holotapes may display the wrong video, coming from another holotape or even another mod
.

Q-
Do videos loop or only play through once?
A- They loop, that was always the goal. That way they can run in the background while you potter around.

Q-
Does it play AVI/MPG/MP4/FLV/ETC…?
A- The mod uses .DDS textures and .xwm audio.

Q-
What’s the maximum resolution & length a video tape can be?
A- Each frame is 256×256 pixels (vertically stretched, and re-scaled by the UVs). The current maximum time limit per tape is around 10 minutes.

Q-
Will you release a tutorial on how I can add my own videos?
A- Look at the beginning, you can't miss that banner!

Q-The radiation Star doesn't work, what's the problem?
A- If an object is placed between the projector and the screen, if the projector is too far away or too close, too low or too high, and if the projector doesn't correctly face the screen, it will not work.

Q- Something doesn't work, what can i do?
A- You can scrap all VotW objects and build new ones, reinstall the mod, look whether all the files are correctly installed, reinstall the mod manually
(by following the steps written in the article if you want), make sure the plug-ins are activated, or even modify the load order to have SpecialVideos.esp loaded last.
If it still doesn't work, reinstall VotW several time if needed and check the loose files.
Most of the issue are related to the user

Q- How can I repair Starlight Drive-In?
A- You need to go in front of the big screen with 30 steel, select "repair it" then you need to power the main projector building.

Q- Some holotapes don't display the good video, what can I do?
A- Read the installation section for more info about that. Simply uninstall all the add-ons you have, load and save the game
and then install each add-ons one by one.



Thanks to Orvid for Caprica and Champollion, DexesTPP for HKXPack – [RazorWire] couldn’t have made this mod without any of these tools.
Thanks to all the devs who continue to develop Nifskope and Fo4Edit – Modding would be nowhere without you guys.
Thanks to Bethesda for making Fallout 4 as awesome and modder friendly as it is.
