    If you have a problem caused by a recent version of NVSR:
    1. Find your NVSR ini file. See the "Master" section at the top of it. Disable features from there (by changing ones to zeroes) until your problem goes away. If you can change all the ones to zeroes and your problem remains then likely NVSR was not at fault. Re-enable features that weren't the cause of your problem.
    2. Post here. Describe the problem. Tell me which line in the "Master" section was associated with the problem. If you have used a previous version of NVSR that did not cause the problem, let me know about that, including which version it was.

    and optionally, 3. If you're feeling industrious, try finding the section of the NVSR ini associated with the particular feature you're having trouble with (not all features have ini sections, but many do), and try adjusting its settings to see if they have any effect on your problem.

    That will at least give me a fighting chance of figuring out what went wrong. Hopefully.

    ******************************Updated February 25th 2019 *******************************
    The fixes below are now deprecated due to the release of New Vegas Tick Fix: https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/66537?tab=description

    I'm leaving the post up for all those people who like "dodgy or placebo settings" as our overloard axonis stated in a recent post, even though I don't see his recommended settings anywhere to be found and this information took time and effort to put together and share with others for free. Anyway it's that kind of hive-mind doucheyness that's got me moved on from modding and back to MMO's for a while. At least in MMO's you can right-click ignore.


    First, edit your .ini files in my games\falloutnv\fallout.ini and falloutprefs.ini to read
    ***** Note - Tale of Two Wastelands does this by default so TTW users can skip this *****
    [General]
    bUseThreadedAI=1
    iNumHWThreads=8

    Then you'll need: New Vegas Script Extender, New Vegas Anti Crash, RoyBatty's 4GB Patch, and enboost, and setting the enblocal.ini file located in Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout new vegas\enblocal.ini to look like:
    ***** Note - Tale of Two Wastelands adds NVSE and the 4GB patch by default so TTW users only need NVAC and enboost *****
    [MEMORY]
    ExpandSystemMemoryX64=true
    ReduceSystemMemoryUsage=true
    DisableDriverMemoryManager=false
    DisablePreloadToVRAM=false
    EnableUnsafeMemoryHacks=true
    ReservedMemorySizeMb=1024
    VideoMemorySizeMb=10240 <------------- <Change this variable to reflect your video card's ram>*****************
    EnableCompression=true
    AutodetectVideoMemorySize=false

    To use ENBooost without having to turn off Anti Aliasing add this to the bottom of your enblocal.ini file:
    [GLOBAL]
    UseENBoostWithoutGraphics=true

    And also using the Sheson memory patch (Google it) in the NVSE .ini file to look like:

    steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\Data\NVSE\nvse_config.ini :
    [Memory]
    DefaultHeapInitialAllocMB=496
    scrapheapsizeMB=256

    And finally, I am using BOTH the Sheson Memory patch heap replacement as shown above, together with the NVSR heap replacement.
    I don't know why it works, but if I only use one or the other I still get crashes around Primm, West Vegas, and other over-modded areas.

    steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\Data\NVSE\Plugins\sr_New_Vegas_Stutter_Remover.ini :

    Master = {
    _comment = You can turn on or off each distinct feature from here.

    }
    Experimental = {

    _comment =other settings here you're probably better off not touching
    bReduceSleep = 0
    iThreadsFixedToCPUs = 1
    bSuppressRandomSeeding = 0

    bInject_iFPSClamp = 1
    fMaximumFPS = 59
    fMinimumFPS = 15
    iFPS_Report_Period = 15000
    fExtraSleepPercent =0.05
    }
    GetTickCount = {
    _comment =This section is disabled by default - see Master/bReplaceGetTickCount

    }
    CriticalSections = {
    _comment = CS stuff helps Oblivion, Fallout, and New Vegas significantly
    _comment = much of the benefit comes from the Renderer+0x180 suppression (see overrides below)
    _comment = modes: 1=vanilla, 2=fair, 3=staggering(hybrid of 1 & 2), 5=suppressed
    bUseOverrides = 1
    iDefaultMode = 1
    iDefaultSpin = 1000
    iStaggerLevel = 5
    bEnableMessages = 1
    bEnableProfiling = 0
    }
    LightCriticalSections = {
    _comment =LCS stuff is like CS stuff, but with a Bethesda implementation. And inlined sometimes, so difficult for me to work with
    bEnableProfiling = 0
    bEnableMessages = 1
    iDefaultMode = 3
    iDefaultSpin = 1000
    iStaggerLevel = 5
    bFullHooks = 0
    bUseOverrides = 0
    }
    Heap = {
    _comment =This section is disabled by default - see Master/bReplaceHeap
    _comment =I recommend enabling it however.
    _comment = Heap replacement can produce MAJOR improvements in performance on Oblivion at a significant cost in stability
    _comment = It crashes instantly on Fallout3 last I remember checking
    _comment = It seems to work on Fallout: New Vegas ?
    _comment = Algorithms: 1=FastMM4, 2=Microsoft (slow on XP), 3=SimpleHeap1, 4=TBBMalloc, 5=ThreadHeap2, 6=ThreadHeap3, 8=tcmalloc
    _comment = Algorithms numbers 1, 4, and 8 require external DLL files in the Data/OBSE/Plugins/ComponentDLLs folder
    _comment = Size is in units of megabytes, and only effects algorithms 3, 5, and 6 (other algorithms dynamically determine their own size)
    iHeapAlgorithm = 6
    bEnableProfiling = 0
    iHeapSize = 256
    bEnableMessages = 0
    bZeroAllocations = 0

    Finally... I f you're having audio problemns, edit your .ini file in my games\falloutnv\fallout.ini and falloutprefs.ini, to read:
    ***** Note - Tale of Two Wastelands does this by default so TTW users can skip this *****
    [Audio]
    bEnableAudioCache=1
    iAudioCacheSize=8192
    iMaxSizeForCachedSound=1024

    And if you're getting distortion with any sounds even after using RoyBatty's decompressor or installing Tale of Two Wastelands try this mod:
    True 3d Sound for Headphones https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/65094
    It's not designed to be a fix, but I installed it for the 3D sound and it fixed some crackling voices I had even after a TTW install, and It works for stereo speakers too. Just make sure to change the .ini file it installs in Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas\alsoft.ini to read
    [General]
    sources=1024

    Happy Gaming!

      Tried your config and... THANKS! no crashes at all and no stutter either. At first I went with the default setting with bHookCriticalSections = 0
      bHookLightCriticalSections = 0 but the stutter was pretty bad sometimes when loading and transitioning cells. With your setting everything is really smooth, I suggest everyone to try this settings and report the results.

      Tried the ini changes without running ENB and my big stutter every 100 feet or so is gone. Running about 60 mods on 4790K and 980TI and an old 830 SSD. I am only experimenting in Goodsprings on a new restart but so far it is working.

      Anyone else having their post count go down every day they come to the site? Irrelevant I know but it has been bugging me.

      Thumbs up to this post, with the only difference being: If this still doesn't work, try changing your iHeapSize to 450 instead. This is what worked for me.

      Your sugestions worked like a charm. Thank you. Just one thing: if I try to load more than two times a saved game, suddenly I lose the effects sounds. And if I try to quit to the main menu to solve the bug, the game enters into a infinite loading screen. Any suggestions?

      Tried this and then after a minute of loading my save, some sound effects went missing, some first person animations stopped working and then a window popped up saying "Error: Out of Memory" and then the game crashed.

      To all the guys that have no sound on loading issue, i dont use his setting, i use the default ones for NVSR (I deleted the INI and let NVSR to create new one with defult setting)
      I been having this issue two, more the once, i load a save file, it loads LONGER then usual and then audio is gone, if you quit to main menu, it stuck on infinite load.
      I never noticed that it happens if you load a bunch of times in a raw..
      Ill try to remove NVSR and play the game in windowed-fullscreeen Windows 10 mode that forces VSYNC and triple buffering and see how it goes

      Thank you! I'm not even sure if my crashes are related to the Win10 FCU and NVSR, but your settings seemed to have fixed my crashes. After the FCU update I was able to keep playing with no issues until a week or so ago. After about an hour (sometimes longer if I was lucky), the game crashed with just a small window saying "Out of Memory." These crashes mostly happened whenever something triggered a loading screen like going from an interior to exterior or loading a save, but it got worse. It got to the point where after 3 loading screens, the game would crash on the 4th one with the out of memory error, and started happening when walking around in the wasteland and cells were loading in. That's when I searched for a fix and heard that the Win10 FCU causes problems when using NVSR. I applied your settings and to test it, I fast traveled to several locations and loaded several games, and not a single crash. Now I can get back to playing.

      For some reason though I can no longer Alt Tab to my desktop without it crashing. Is this normal or did I miss something?

      Just jumping on the bandwagon here to say that redmaxblower's ini settings work like a charm. I have a very similar system, and was just able to play for 3 hours straight, without a crash or a stagger. I don't even think I was able to do that on PS3........

      Thank you so much! My game has never run this smoothly. Except, I was wondering if you could either turn off the flora, or keep it the same as before? Because it is a little bit distracting. Everything else seems to look great otherwise, since I can finally use ultra settings.

      I do not know how to thank you enough. I have gone through trials and tribulation in order to get this game to run smoothly, and as a first time modder, you made this very simple and easy to understand. For any new folks like me, if you are confused about you not having a nvse ini file, you have to make one yourself.

      This was so helpful that my game won't even boot up in NVSE anymore...
      The changes made to my stutter remover .ini just makes the game not even be able to boot up. But with the regular stutter remover settings, my game will freeze and crash every 5 minutes. But If I just say f*** this mod and uninstall it my game crashes every 4-6 hours. Sorry just upset over how awful the engine is for new vegas.

      By the Master's left toe....I really did not expect this to work. I'm still amazed. I don't know if you realize, but for the past 2 years or so, I've been trying to figure out why I was getting such horrible performance in Fallout NV with almost the same exact specs as you. Then I upgraded to the 1080Ti and still had crappy performance! I had just assumed that the game had reached its limit with the number of textures I'd installed or it was TTW. I'd messed around with the Fallout Stutter Remover.ini as well. Editing all sorts of values and giving people advice on my own discoveries.

      But it was your fix man...like I'm so happy. I can finally play TTW with the 100 something texture mods that I have installed at 60 FPS with ENB!! Thank you so much! Now Im gonna be fooling around with ENB files again! New Vegas lives again!!! :D

      Tried settings you suggested tweaked for my system, got pretty bad stutters. Then I used the default NVSR settings, loaded and after 5 minutes I lost all sounds then infinite loading as others pointed out. Yup. Seems like I'll never get to f***ing play this game.

      @z9A90 The ENB Local INI file is not part of NVSR but is part of another mod called ENB Boost or alternatively ENB if you are planning on using one. Configure the ENB Local ini file like he listed above and add the code he listed at the end of the file. There are multiple tutorials on YouTube you can search for on how to install ENB's.

      Glad this helps so many people. Just some reminders for some of the issues listed lately...

      If you get an infinite loading screen at start up, you are missing a master (.esm) file that is requires by one of your plugin (.esp) files.

      If you get a black screen at startup BUT you still have sound. It's a weird bug I experienced with using the 4GB patcher and the latest Enb d3d9.dll.

      To Fix this you can do one of two things:

      1) Use the d3d9.dll from the Enboost Patch. But this won't allow you to use enb's that change lighting and use effects.

      2) Run the game using the NVSE Loader. I've read that some people even rename the NVSE Loader to FalloutNV.exe.

      These workarounds aren't perfect, but at least the game will run.

      Using these settings I've noticed a couple things. First thing I've noticed is that, while I do still have some rather awful FPS drops and stutters, it may not be from the settings. It could more so simply be from my specs for my PC (Currently running AMD Radeon RX 580 8gb, Intel i5-2400 without it being overclocked, and then 8gb RAM). However what I have noticed is, and maybe this is thanks to your settings, or maybe it's simply with the way I've modded this, is that the game DOES run stable. I've streamed for about three and a half hours yesterday, without one crash. There was one minor bug (the Bison Hotel texture kind of f***ed up on me and made me unable to really continue that area), but overall it was playable. Stable and playable to me is better than smooth FPS.

      Thx for the suggestion this works but it has a minor (or major) issue.
      If you quit from the main menu title theres a 50% chance of getting a black screen that you cant alt tab or anything.
      this is making me paranoid and making me want to use One tweak (a windowed fullscreen mod)
      Anyways im gona keep testing hopefully it works.

      For whatever reason now, after having tried to find some fixes, it just simply doesn't want to start up anymore when I have the /bReplaceHeap enabled on it, while I did have it enabled before, when I last posted my message. I'm rather quickly losing confidence and hope that this game will run stable-y and smoothly at the same time. Has anyone used RoyBatty's TTW Performance Guide and used these settings? Did you manage to make it work? Because for me, well, nothing seems to really work. Everything to me seems like having the reverse effect. It seems to make the game act and behave much worse.

      I tested your tweak thoroughly, I played a two hour session which is about when my game would start to eat s*** and die in the performance department (Freezing when shooting enemies/opening pipboy/opening menu) and I'm so happy to say that it ran smooth as scotch the for the whole two hours, no freezes, no stutters, perfect.

      I cannot overstate how grateful I am for your tweak, and for anyone wondering if it works and if it's worth it, yes and hell yes.

      My character no longer makes noises when getting hit/ performing power attacks. I figured it was being caused by this fix because of what some people have been commenting on here. Could one of the settings possibly be responsible for missing sound effects? Even after changing the ini file I still have missing sound effects so a little help please?

      Spoiler:

      That's to be expected with increasing multiple heap allocations. Try changing the following in your FalloutPrefs.ini
       

      bEnableAudioCache=1
      iAudioCacheSize=8192
      iMaxSizeForCachedSound=1024

      I don't know what your specs are but if those cache sizes are too much, try halving them.

      Going to test the updates and see what'll happen if I test that. Kudos still to @redmaxblower for taking his time and effort into sharing what's been helping his Fallout: New Vegas run smoothly, without many stutters and crashes. Even if this were to not work as well as I would hope it would, there's at least a handful of folks that apparently this works for. Maybe it's just my CPU being too old. Who knows.

      Man, you are a life saver. I was almost giving up on a new playthrough when I found your post, thank your very much!

      Just a little contribution - in order to give the VIDEO CARD FULL CONTROL under vsync, you will probably have to:

      1. Delete the lines regarding "fps limit" and "vsyinc" on ENBLOCAL
      2. Make sure that iPresentInterval=0 in the FALLOUT.INI
      3. Make sure that vsync is deactivate on the LAUNCHER
      4. Download NVIDIA PROFILE INSPECTOR or equivalent to AMD
      5. Set the following values:

      [SYINC AND REFRESH]
      frame rate limiter = 60.7
      maximum pre rendered frames = 1
      prefered refresh rate = highest available
      vertycal sync = force on
      vertycal sync smooth AFR = on

      Hope it helps someone. Sorry for my english, it is not my native language. Cheers from Brazil o/

      I thought the game doesn't allow you to edit my games\falloutnv\fallout.ini and falloutprefs.ini
      those ini's always go back to read only and get changed back for me whenever I make a change to them, after unchecking read only from its properties of course.
      I can edit the Fallout_default.ini that is in the game folder with the games exe's though
      should I edit that instead?

      This sounds like a great fix and stabilizer, but I couldn't find one of the lines in ANY of my FNV .ini files. Found the "bUseThreadedAI" just fine in all the .ini files, but didn't find "iNumHWThreads=" line ANYWHERE..in ANY .ini..not even the default .ini. I did find "iNumHavokThreads", but that wasn't under "General".
      Anyway, I'll look again another time, as so many people have said they applied these edits, so it must be there somewhere.
      Thanks for the tips and edits, just the same. I'll update if I find them and it works.

      @redmaxblower -- the point about "dodgy or placebo" wasn't made for your published settings. Please accept my apology for hurting you, it wasn't intended at all. As for my settings, I'm using defaults with bReplaceHeap = 1 and iHeapAlgorithm = 5 at Heap because I found out that it would solve CTDs related to a bug that was reported at the YUP. I'm on Windows 7 64bit.

      Your point about easily blocking users is double edged. Sometimes its better to discuss issues that annoy you only to find that intentions were not as bad as it would seem.

      Just to add yet another reply to the burgeoning list...

      Whilst this combination of memory patch, ENBboost and NVSR settings makes the game, for me, the most fluid and stutter-free it has ever been... it sadly does not work for me. Still prone to freezes, never-ending loading, audio cut-out prior to crashing, the works.

      After 3 years modding this game comprehensively across 3 rigs on Windows 10, and after following every stability and ini guide under the sun on countless set-ups - TTW, gopher, gamerpoets, STEP - it always, always boils down to one thing.

      bHookCriticalSections.

      If it is on, I will eventually get crashes and these always compound the further I get into the game.

      If it is off, I can play continuously without crashes.

      The compromise for me is adopt redmaxblower’s tips above, with the sole difference setting bHookCriticalSections off, and just accept the intermittent jarring stutter on travelling.

      Played a new game this evening, All the way from Doc Mitchell to NCRCF to Mojave Outpost, all quests in between, and experienced precisely ZERO crashes, freezes or dodgy loading loops. All thanks to turning bHookCriticalSections off.

      If it prevents anyone else wasting time, my set-up:
      I7-8750H, 8GB GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, Windows 10, running on non-program files directory of an SSD.

      These settings worked for me. I was having a nasty repeatable crash in the Bison hotel that was a show stopper. After applying these settings, no more crash and no noticeable stutters! FYI, I have an AMD 8370 and a GTX 1070 on W10.

      When I set my heap to either FastMM4, SimpleHeap1 or ThreadHeap2 I stopped experiencing crashes after leaving a gambling table and opening the Pip-Boy. This is a known issue in the game, and not related to NVSR, but this NVSR setting has solved the problem in my system.

      Eventually, I set it to ThreadHeap2 because its the fastest according to the author's comments.

      What you wrote. However, for me, changing the heap to 4 resulted in an improved performance (by ~6% compared to the default heap #6), though I could notice that only thanks to the logs (I forced the NVSR to produce them with the .INI).

      What's certainly interesting, I looked this Intel TBB (it's in the .DLL's name that's mentioned in the readme) thing up and it's has a source code/package that could be compiled using the newest Visual Studio compilers with the inbuilt optimization processes, and I'm positive it might result in even better performance if replaced the given tbballoc.dll that the NVSR's author delivers with their mod package for this heap; similarly to the improved performance with the updated OGG libraries.

      Alas, I have no idea on how to compile or do anything like that.

      EDIT: Hold on, I just realized I can download compiled binaries from GitHub. I will report on how the new .DLL works by tomorrow.

      EDIT v2: Dang, it didn't work. I believe the .DLL need to be compiled in a way to match the Stutter Remover's specific stuff in its library. I'm still very positive that making an updated Intell TBB allocator for NVSR will result in even better performance. Does anyone know a proficient coder?

    For me it works fine on Win10 most of the time, except that I'm still getting micro stutter when loading new content even on a SSD and sometimes FPS tanks awfully to 15-20 and random infinite loading screens or longer than normal loading screens and then no sound.

    Do anyone have a solution for some of those problems?

    If you run Windows 10, consider the replacement/alternative for this mod here:

    https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/66537


    If you use windows 10 and want to try to keep using this mod instead:
    In the .ini, set bHookCriticalSections to 0 to prevent crashing.

    If experiencing further issues, try downloading an edited .ini found here:

      Have you tried going into stutter remover.ini and scrolling down to critical sections and the line iDefaultMode = 3, change that value to 1 even after following the fix above. I was in the same boat as you and that fixed it for me. Remember to set bHookLightCriticalSections back to 1. That fixed the infinite load screen issue for me. No crashes and smooth gameplay. Give it a try.

      I would start by making sure you followed this guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cypqage_Pdk
      If you've done all that blah blah blah and followed redmaxblowers settings below, you are good. Now if the game is still stuttering you need to find the cause, I'll tell you a couple of things I ran into and things that can cause stutter.

      You might want to turn replace heap off in the stutter remover ini if you are running a largely vanilla game, its mostly for heavy modded playthroughs in anyways, or you can try tweaking with it till you are satisfied, its a very finnicky setting and its tailor made for each persons set-up, what numbers and heap settings might be good for one OS/Hardware might not be good for another. Ergo I recommend turning it off for now, it does improve performance when done right though but can produce stuttering and crashes when done wrong, turn it off for now and if the game is still stuttering, good, move on and you can tweak this setting later.

      sr_New_Vegas_Stutter_Remover.ini:
      bReplaceHeap = 0
      bManageFPS = 0 (This setting set to 1 gave stutters for me)

      Let move on to the enb settings.
      Now enb's or enboost can cause stuttering if not set up properly, if the memory settings aren't correct it will cause stuttering, especially if you are using redmaxblowers settings below because they were tailor made for GTX1080ti GPUs, not your petty AMD GPU. What you need to do is go to the enb page and download this tool to measure your vram: http://enbdev.com/download_vramsizetest.htm
      Download it and extract it, you should have 2 exes use the DX9 one and it will generate a number, subtract 350 from that number, test it out and add it to the video memory size. My guess is you gave ENB settings your system can't handle.
      VideoMemorySizeMb= <--- Insert the number you get

      You also might wanna mess with ReservedMemorySizeMb and set it lower, try 768, 512, 256 in increments, this is one that can really give stutters.

      Another guess is you mention trying to cap your framerate and it not working, something MUST be blocking or conflicting with the cap you've implemeted via the AMD control panel, therefore you will have to find another method or need to solve it, obviously. I'm not an AMD user so I can't help there.
      I hope this info helps you.

      The tick fix actually helps with the overall stuttering, but at least for me it stutters for a short moment, mostly when the game has to load NPCs, etc, and I'm running towards them. With NVSR I don't have this problem. My game isrunning rock solid, around 200 mods, win 10, NVSR. I'm not sure what exactly cuases it on my game, but I'm good with NVSR for now. Maybe tgspy will improve it someday, or maybe it's something on my end. However, it works.
