    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.

    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, etc)
    Hope this might help someone suffering crashes like I was before I made the changes. Mainly changed the Critical Sections iDefaultMode to 1.
    My Specs: i7 7700k - GTX 1080ti - 16GB RAM - 500GB SSD

    First you'll need: New Vegas Script Extender, New Vegas Anti Crash, RoyBatty's 4GB Patch, and enboost, and setting the enblocal.ini to look like:

    Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout new vegas\enblocal.ini :

    [MEMORY]
    ExpandSystemMemoryX64=true
    ReduceSystemMemoryUsage=true
    DisableDriverMemoryManager=false
    DisablePreloadToVRAM=false
    EnableUnsafeMemoryHacks=true
    ReservedMemorySizeMb=1024
    VideoMemorySizeMb=10240
    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 :

      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?

      I lost sound effects once a few weeks ago and installed an audio codec... ffdshow or community codec pack and that solved the missing audio. I don't think that had to do with NVSR but with a Windows reinstall or update... my memory is vague on that one.

      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

      I remember now that the sound problems I experienced months back were fixed when I used some of the settings described in part 6 of this modding guide:

      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aKHLNQUpK4qL6xxGDPj_KTbvzuG_7mYNu9_IF37bmLI/pubhtml

      Hope that helps.

      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.

      I tried these settings and now my game won't start. I have a black screen or a infinite loading menu. Anybody has any advice? I have a nvidia gtx 1060.

      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.

      So, first of all, THANK YOU. I got it working and your tweaks sure make the game run like butter.

      Saw the comments and replies. Still, I don't understand whether the reported sound and/or loading bugs are related to NVSR. Does anyone have a definitive answer on that? Just to know, in case I get these bugs, or my OCD will give me no rest.

      It should be in the NVSE plugins folder, along with the NVSR .dll. If it's not there, manually download a fresh copy of NVSR, unzip it and manually copy/paste the .ini into the plugins folder.

    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, etc)
    Hope this might help someone suffering crashes like I was before I made the changes. Mainly changed the Critical Sections iDefaultMode to 1.
    My Specs: i7 7700k - GTX 1080ti - 16GB RAM - 500GB SSD

    First you'll need: New Vegas Script Extender, New Vegas Anti Crash, RoyBatty's 4GB Patch, and enboost, and setting the enblocal.ini to look like:

    Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout new vegas\enblocal.ini :

    [MEMORY]
    ExpandSystemMemoryX64=true
    ReduceSystemMemoryUsage=true
    DisableDriverMemoryManager=false
    DisablePreloadToVRAM=false
    EnableUnsafeMemoryHacks=true
    ReservedMemorySizeMb=1024
    VideoMemorySizeMb=10240
    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 :

    Like a lot of people, I'm dropping in to say thanks, I'm running this on linux through wine on a couple of years old setup but with this I can play with ultra graphics, NMCs (the smallest, because i didn't dare try the others) texture pack and a couple of LOD packs, so thanks a lot!

    Edit: only difference (I think) is that I put way less on video memory size in enblocal.ini, since my GPU is waaaaaaaay worse than that.

    Edit 2: haha I think the thing was that I disabled the graphics from the enb, either way now I know that it can run great so this file at least helped me get motivation back to delve deeper into the ini files, thanks either way!

    It does not work very well for me. The stutter is gone, but I got more crashes and infinite load screens in a hour with this than in 30+ hours of gameplay without it. Yes, even after trying some popular solutions listed here.

    I dont know why but NVSR makes my PC completely freeze and lock up when I "Exit Game".

    My FNV is up to date. I own all of the DLC.

    I have the following mods installed along with NVSR(New Vegas Stutter Remover):

    NVSE

    4G FNV

    NVAC

    ENBSeries v0.322 (with no enb presets installed yet.)

    I came to the conclusion that NVSR is the problem because i uninstalled every mod back to the point where i knew the game was running fine and installed them one at a time testing to see which one causes the problem.

    I havent seen this bug talked about on any of the mods. I followed instructions to a tee and made sure that they were all compatible. So im just left not knowing what to do.

    Is there an alternative to NVSR?

    Those mods were applied to the game using Vortex and a clean install of FNV. This is the first time modding a fallout game in 4 or more years. Back then NMM was the preferred manager but when i saw that nexus was advertising Vortex and that they stopped dev on NMM i only assumed that would be the best option. If im mistaken on this and theres a better MM please let me know.

      Id suggest to switch over to mod organizer 2, i dont think vortex works that great with new vegas. mod organizer also does not touch ur game files at all and lets u sort everything u want. Id say try using one tweak because it works well and makes ur game borderless fullscreen and see if that fixes your problems https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/59266

    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.

    Hey, Guys. Instead of using this freaking stutter remover, try this: make this edit in your ini files - iFPSClamp=0 to iFPSCLamp=60. This worked for me. No stutters and no crashes. Even without NVAC.

      Yeah, I tried this, but it doesn't for me. Going to test it now what happens if I keep this in my ini files, while also having NVSR on. Test to check and see what exactly will happen. Going to test if it will counter each other and make the game more stable and less stuttery, or make it even worse. We'll have to wait and see. I'll be back, in a jiffy.

      Edit: It doesn't seem to really do much of anything.

      It does work for me as well, you just have to make sure your screen is locked to 60fps through ENB or another program. I wouldn't use it at same time as the stutter remover.

      I think I'm having the same issue as @Zhunter5000 is having. Whenever I have NVSR removed, and have changed the iFPSClamp from 0 to 60 it does the same thing as he mentioned. The game starts becoming rather buggy, not to mention the stuttering is still not away fully. I'm fairly sure this comes because of the amount of mods I have installed, along with the fact my CPU may not be the greatest at the moment. I did try what @shad73 suggested, but even with doing that it still does the same thing. With just using the ENB Boost.

      @EvilOssie Let me go ahead and take a quick gander here.. Give me just one moment, good Sir. I say a good amount, but I have currently 77 Plugins, of which 76 are being used. According to Nexus Mod Manager. If you want, I can give you a list of what mods I'm currently using, but I'm not sure how much of a difference it would make. To also give an indication of my specs, I've mentioned them before, but I'll mention them again.

      This eliminates the micro-stutter, but it doesn't get rid of the general stutter when loading into new areas, also if your fps drops under 60 the game goes slow motion, it's an ok fix and better than nothing if you can't use stutter remover and have a decent PC I suppose.

    I tried this again with TTW and after following some of the advice here I got it working. NVAC made my game stable but this mod makes my game stable and stays smooth. NVAC would sometimes cause stutter/lag. I'm still very thankful for NVAC because without mods NV is quite a mess.
