    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 Dec. 23, 2018**
    - Added a critical sections fix posted by Brad852 on October 1, 2018 , Tested and works. Thanks Brad852!.
    - Added fallout.ini and falloutprefs.ini edits to use multi core, I've always used these but thought I'd add them here for anyone who doesn't.
    - Set the Stutter Remover bManageFPS = 0 and use my video card's vsync instead as that seems to smooth the framerate much better [not the vsync on the game launcher. as that doesn't seem to work or prevent tearing at all].
    - Added the Audio fix recommended by RoyBatty and the TTW team and VariableEagle in a reply below along with a mod recommendation to remove audio distortion even after decompressing and reformatting .ogg files to .wav.
    - Glad this helped so many people, and even if it didn't... my game's runnin like butter. heh.

    ---Original Post---
    My NVSR .ini file settings which fixed the windows 10 crashing issue and now runs stable and fairly smooth with only the occasional stutter.
    My game is heavily modded (FOOK-PN-WMX-WME-EVE-AWOP Convergence, Warzones, IWS, MoMod, Factions Reloaded, 2K textures etc)
    Hope this might help someone suffering crashes like I was before I made the changes.
    My Specs: i7 7700k - GTX 1080ti - 16GB RAM - 500GB SSD

    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 :

    Mode = 3
    Spin = 6000 <------------------<Delete this line completely> *******************************************************
    Version =FalloutNV 1.4.0.525

    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.

      I can't thank you enough! I was skeptical at first but the improvement is EXTREMELY noticeable. I don't usually like to leave comments; but you definitely deserve my thumbs up :D.
      Again, appreciate all of the help. I can't recall ever visiting Primm w/o the terrible fps drop, not even when I bought the game on PS back in the day

      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.

      Where's the Enblocal file? I don't see it in any of five mod folders. Why didn't you just save us the trouble from looking for it by telling us where the hell it is?! Sorry if i sound too rude. I'm pissed off from trying every way to fix FNV known to man.

      @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?

    I thought I'd post in the hope that this information may help someone who was in my situation. Long story short, I had stuttering so I downloaded this mod and it solved my problem for me... however, I would then suffer crashing, freezing and infinite loading. I tried all the methods below this post as well as the stickied posts, none of it worked. That said, I then stumbled across this Reddit post: "www.reddit.com/r/fnv/comments/819wwq/followup_psa_an_even_better_crash_fix_for_windows/" This solved my problem completely! No stutter, no crashing, no freezing and no infinite loading!

    Hope this helps someone like it helped me.

      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.

    For anyone who is having issues with either poor stability or persisting stutters when using settings commonly found to be recommended on here for use post Windows 10 update, for me it was guaranteed crashing upon death and general crashes in various different scenarios this is what mended all of my issues and my game now runs smooth and is stable.
     
    TLR - Set iDefaultMode to 3 under CriticalSections, ensure that bUseOverrides is 1 under the aforementioned section, finally delete "Spin = 6000" under the 3rd CriticalSection of the OverrideList. If it doesn't work make sure that the settings under Master are as follows:

    bManageFPS = 1
    bHookCriticalSections = 1
    bHookLightCriticalSections = 0
    bHookHashtables = 1
    bReplaceHeap = 1
    bReplaceGetTickCount = 1
    bLogToConsole = 0
    bFastExit = 1
    bFlushLog = 1
    iSchedulingResolution = 1
    bReplaceRandom = 1
    bExperimentalStuff = 0
    iMainHookPoint = 1 

    Many guides recommended disabling bHookCriticalSections, in my experience this causes severe stuttering when moving around the wasteland though enabling it causes awful stability with the game often crashing. Another common recommendation is to set iDefaultMode to 1 as otherwise the game wont even load past the menus when bHookCriticalSections is enabled, however, I found that if you set iDefaultMode to the original value of 3 but disabling overriding then the game will launch just fine and stop but now the stuttering issues begin to occur once again, this is because the first override improves performance significantly so with overrides disables it does not come into effect, but enabling overrides will cause the stability issues. The problem lies with the 3rd override in the list with the line "Spin = 6000", removing this brings back the stability without the sacrifice of performance.
     
    I hope my findings can help some others, I spent a very long time trying different combinations of settings and narrowing down what the problem could be. It may be worth noting that I do also use ENBoost and the NVSE memory patch.

      Stutter remover does not remove all stutters, so @moonman3km make sure you are making a merged patch or bashed patch so its easier for ur game to load in ur mods because that also removes stutters. Also brad's post only applies if ur game is crashing because windows 10 is glitchy with nvsr u gotta disable some core parts of nvsr to get it working but that keeps the stuttering.

      OKAY THANK YOU SO MUCH. Your advice helped. I also followed what nvsr said in its text folder for fps management and for breplaceheap if u have 4gb patcher. For me I have windows 10 version 1607 (anniversary update 14393.1770) and I can confirm that this can help. My stutters are removed and my game wont crash after going through many areas over and over again, I tested for 50 minutes. Usually it will make u crash with windows 10 around 20-30 minutes if u keep fast traveling repeatedly and going into cells/areas over and over again. Mine did not crash at all. Thank You!

      ps: Make sure if u have a heavily modded game or have over 20 mods to make a merged patch/bashed patch. Bigger mods even require it. having a merged or bashed patch will decrease stuttering aswell.
      I have around 90-100 mods too.
      I got like 86 esps/esms enabled.

      My specs are gtx 970
      i5 4690k
      8gb of ram
      and what evers.

      @Brad852 -

      Kudos given.

      I was honestly on the verge of uninstalling New Vegas today. I have been modding Bethesda games (and been playing/modding NV since 2010) for years, butthe game just did not play nicely with Windows 10 (silly how some people couldn't get it to run well on W7, but that happened).

      Some of it was my fault (PSA to others here: I don't care who's dogmeat told you so, but this engine version was not meant to load 4K textures) - I had a bunch of very large, high resolution textures (some 4K). I had since downgraded to 2K stuff, and applied your solution above.

      Ran around the wasteland, where I noticed certain assets loading up would stutter me before -- nope. Not this time. Like, *NOTHING* at all also. Not even a smidge of a stutter. It was completely, flawlessly perfect.

      Now, I won't expect to *never* get a micro-stutter once a blue moon. I mean, this happens even on Skyrim (SE) and FO4 (depending on the situation, location, size of textures and whats going on in that particular scene). Once more, this is FONV. It would be expected to happen, at some point(s).

      But, for now? This is beautiful. Thanks again -- looks like NV gets to stay installed.

      As a regular commoner who doesn't really know what to do, can you show me what exactly you have currently in your NVSR ini file. So I can copy that over? Kudos to whoever does this for me. It would help me out a lot, seeing I want to stream the game from start to finish on my Twitch, and I figured it would be absolutely amazing if my game was stable, and performed well on my PC too. I already posted my specs somewhere down the line, but they are:

      CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10Ghz (4 CPUs) (which is overclocked to 3.4Ghz now).
      GPU: AMD Radeon RX 580 Series 8gb.
      Ram: 8gb DDR3.

      Wow this actually works. Great stability AND performance returned.

      This should be spread around more and on other sites if this isn't already common knowledge.

      If you followed GamerPoets fps and stability guide for new vegas DO NOT CHANGE your iaudiocachesize or imaxsizeforcachedsound. This will make NVSR CRASH YOUR GAME AGAIN. I have tested this thoroughly. This warning only concerns people who have followed Brad852's post on how to fix nvsr with windows 10

      ok. dude, dude...DUDE

      I AM ABSO-F**IN-LUTELY SPEECHLESS

      I have been playing and modding this game for nigh on 6 years, and your fix above has finally fixed the random loading stutter I get when moving around the wasteland.

      I can't explain how many things I tried to stop this, as the type of stutter I had was very nondescript and hard to google around for...and almost 3 complete new pc builds later...you did it for me with this fix

      even though there isn't a whole lot going on, it would stop for almost 2 seconds at a time when moving almost anywhere in the wasteland.

      stutter is totally gone, especially cell to cell, I honestly cannot describe my thanks right now

      out of memory error from moving indoors to outdoors? fixed (sometimes using up to 6GB of VRAM)
      annoying 2 second stutter when loading a new cell? fixed

      I promise you, I have probably one of the, if not thee most visually heavy games out there
      4K with a heavy enb, and an insane number of texture mods (for stress testing purposes)

      the only way I can induce stutters is by setting my player speed to crazy amounts (player.setav speedmult xxx for those who want to test too)
      300/500 but the stutters there are then are a given, sometimes it will freeze, but it will always come too with a 7200rpm HDD

      the fps will now drop as the gpu struggles (as it should) rather than horrible stutters.

      this is the best EVER my game has performed.
      This post needs to be mounted on a golden plaque somewhere in the wasteland and real world.

      Few more questions though:

      What would LOD gen mean for any of these variables, will performance be affected?
      With the new added stability, would it be too cheeky to start tinkering with uGrids distances?

      Thanks!

      You sir are amazing, and this needs to be on a sticky note. This is VITAL INFORMATION!

      My game went from crashing every 5 minutes to being stable for hours on end.

      it doesnt touch that stuff dizzy, that just depends on ur pc for ugrids if it can handle it loading a bigger area.

      I had an issue where New Vegas was almost crashing with repeating audio whenever I opened the pause menu before making these changes, after playing around for 30 minutes it seems all of my issues with stutter/crashing have gone(for now). I will check back in after playing for a few hours and see how I fare. But for now thank you for your fix.

      EDIT: 8 hours in, stutter is back and boy it is not kind.
      2nd Edit: Yeah, after trying other settings nothing works as well as these, guess I gotta live with these, not perfect but definitely the best settings, cheers.

      I just reinstalled new vegas today with only NVSE, NVSR, and 4GB Patch. I am still getting stuttering when new cells load but no microstutter when turning. Did you tweak the Fallout INI settings? This stuttering makes me just not want to play this game and I really miss new vegas.

    my game doesnt load after installing NVSR in MO2 (nvse opens and then it shutdowns itself) and when i unmark nvsr the game initiates.

    several weeks ago i installed TTW then after 2 weeks i uninstalled it but when i installed new vegas only again the only thing that doesnt work anymore is the nvsr somebody knows why? i did a clean registry and a proper uninstall of TTW so idk what could cause the problem

    yes my windows is W10
