About this video

A guide to setting up your PC version of Fallout 4 for modding. This does not show you how to install mods, but rather set your game up ready for mods to be installed. These edits are required for installed mods to work in your game.

You will need to add the following line to the Fallout4Prefs.ini file below the section marked [Launcher]:

bEnableFileSelection=1

You will need to change the following line in Fallout4.ini:

sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\, TEXTURES\, MUSIC\, SOUND\, INTERFACE\, MESHES\, PROGRAMS\, MATERIALS\, LODSETTINGS\, VIS\, MISC\, SCRIPTS\, SHADERSFX\

    Does anyone know if this is still relevant and advised? It seems very old and I imagine that NMM would handle this?

    NVM, yeah just had to rollback to before the install and reinstall, and then despite doing nothing different, it worked.

      you can create it by adding it. In my file [Launcher] is under Blurshader. use the brackets.

      [BlurShader]
      bUseBlurShader=0
      [Launcher]
      bEnableFileSelection=1
      uLastAspectRatio=1

    This is outdated for ages now and no longer needed at all. I have 77 mods successfully running for more than a year and adding (and know about people who run 3 times as many as I do) and no problems whatsoever leaving this line BLANK! It just causes infinite loading times after Nexus Mod Manager's own complaints, I have read about, where it says to empty this line for it causes long loading times (if not crashes!.

    Even a Gopher should have heard about it long since and kindly update his stuff instead of confusing players, especially unexperienced ones.

      You mean to tell me I don't need to do these steps in order to mod fallout 4 to my hearts content?

      the new way is:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_1908461059&feature=iv&src_vid=kq-VZAumD-o&v=fgUbpIzdpGY

      You will need to add the following lines to the Fallout4Prefs.ini file below the section marked
      [Launcher]:
      bEnableFileSelection=1

      You will need to add the following line in Fallout4Custom.ini:

      [Archive]
      bInvalidateOlderFiles=1
      sResourceDataDirsFinal=

    It makes my game crash whenever I try to leave diamond city, the only savegames loading are also in Diamond City, me no understand! xD Does anyone have any idea whats wrong? Even with all the mods disabled I can't start a new game or load games outside Diamond City.. really weird.. :/ However, without modding Fallout4Prefs.ini and Fallout4.ini my old saves seem to load and fast travel fine.

    I have fixed the .ini files as shown. My games are on the same disc. Still, when I start Fallout4 with the mods, the game launches and then shuts down. It only works now when I completely shut down ALL mods. I have used mods before but had to wipe my computer, and now nothing seems to work. What else should I be doing to make it all work?
