Hello all, I recently have started playing New Vegas again and I'm experiencing an odd crash. The game will run fine but as I approach the Powder Ganger camp near Jean Sky diving the game will crash, I have found no way around this.My mods are installed with Vortex or FOMM and sorted with LOOT, I am using the most recent stable version of NVSE and the 4GB patch is installed, I've gone through my entire load order with FOMM and found nothing that I think would cause this but I am by no means an expert. My load order is attached.

Please see the 'Common Game Problems' section of the wiki "FNV General Mod Use Advice" article.  In particular:


* Don't install every optional file for a mod.  Read the install instructions carefully.  Optional files need to be selected on a "case by case" basis.  For example: with any mod you usually only need one ESP (and possibly one ESM) "base" file depending upon whether you have all the DLCs active or not.  Only if you don't have them all active do you need to install any specific DLC versions if there is an "Ultimate Edition/All/Merged DLC" version.

You have both versions of "Nevada Skies" installed: the "Basic Edition" and the "Ultimate DLC Edition".  As it says on the tin: choose one or the other.  (Weather mods can affect you anywhere.  This is most likely the cause of your particular CTD.)


Review the WMX mod optional file choices as well.


* You really need to use a "Merge Patch File" with that collection of mods.  Please see the 'Third Rule: The Rule of One' and 'Merge Patch File' sections of the wiki "FNV General Mod Use Advice" article.

Anytime the game "Crashes to the Desktop" (CTD) it's typically going to generate an error message in the Windows Eventlog.  Please see the "Windows Error Messages" section of the wiki "How to read most Bethesda game error logs" article.

"NVAC - New Vegas AntiCrash" error log entries are described on the "Description" page.  This an important log for "in-game" errors.  Some are intended to assist mod authors; while others are there to help "you, the player" trying to resolve a problem.  You are interested in the entries which are NOT automatically handled successfully by NVAC.  Key entries to look for are the following "letter codes":
* "e" entries are Exceptions handled specifically by NVAC's targeted code changes
* "h" entries are exceptions identified Heuristically by NVAC's "global" exception handler, sometimes handled unsuccessfully.
* "m" entries are "Middle of nowhere" exceptions, sometimes handled unsuccessfully.
* "ñ" entries are Null instruction exceptions, sometimes handled unsuccessfully.
* "n" entries are Null pointer call exceptions, sometimes handled unsuccessfully.
* "o" entries are stack Overflow exceptions, usually handled unsuccessfully.
* "q" entries are program self-termination information; these are effectively crashes.
* "u" entries are Unhandled exceptions reported from the Unhandled Exception Filter; these are crashes (and the NVAC author wants to hear about them).
* "v" entries are unhandled exceptions reported by NVAC's "global" exception handler; these are crashes.
* "w" entries are informative, relaying exception information as it passes through New Vegas's final exception handler.
* "x" entries are critical errors in Windows exception data; these entries should never occur.
* ":" entries are output from OutputDebugString calls.
* ";" entries are output from the game's own error checking.
Other codes may be of interest, but are not things the player is likely to be able to resolve,  They are useful for informing the author of the mod to aid them in fixing their plugin.  In particular, pass along the
* "_" entries are informative, relaying that NVAC was loaded and the base address of various DLLs
* "!" entries are informative, relaying human-readable text for the user
Any error codes found in the log but not listed on the mod "Description" page should be reported to the NVAC comments page.

I recommend anyone read the entire "FNV General Mod Use Advice" article to understand the differences between this game and others you may have experience with; especially if this is your first attempt to play a modded FNV or it's been more than a year since you last did so.

Please note the date of the previous post, and see the Nexus "Terms of Service" about not resurrecting old threads.  The primary reason is that the original thread participants are seldom still around, and it is unlikely that you have exactly the same setup.  Details matter.  You are better off starting your own thread and providing all the details requested in the wiki "How to ask for help" article.  ("Same symptoms" does not equal "same causes".)


What results (error messages) are you finding following the advice in my reply to OP?
