FAQ

Can I be kicked for using INI tweaks?
As long as you don't use FOV and graphic tweaks in Nuclear Winter ("soft cheats"), you should be fine.

Can I be banned for using mods?
This is the statement of Bethesda: Bethesda Support Page
Apparently, nobody has been banned for using mods for now.
Just don't use any programs like Reshade or Cheat Engine, as people have been already banned for this.
Keep in mind that this situation might change at any moment. There has been ban waves in the past.

What about mods?
You can install and manage mods with this tool.


Do translations for older versions work with newer versions of the tool?
Yes! However, new elements aren't translated yet.



Known issues
VSync doesn't work, I still experience screen tearing
I've had multiple reports about this issue and I don't know what causes this.
The tool technically only changes iPresentInterval. It sets it to 0 (off) or 1 (on).
Setting it to 2 or above results in a black screen.
If you experience this issue, try deleting all *.ini files in C:\Users\<you>\Documents\My Games\Fallout 76\.

bundled_textures.ba2 is missing
Please look into archive2.log.txt.
If you can spot "System.AggregateException", then one or more of your mods have corrupted *.dds files.
Use "Tools > Repair all *.dds files" to repair ALL *.dds files.
OR
Select a mod, click on the pen to edit mod details, and click on "Repair *.dds files".
NOTE: This might take a while, so grab a coffee or a snack... or both.
