Hey guys, FONV is my fav game of all time but I've played it to death so I've modded the hell out of it (for a noob) to try make the experience as different as possible. The problem now is that the game freezes/crashes at totally random points.. sometimes it won't load the main menu, other times it freezes when entering/leaving a building, othertimes it's in combat or when running, it seems completely random.


I'm a super noob at modding so I've used the U.L.T.I.M.A.T.E guide for suggestions and then just browsed for other mods. Here's my load order according to LOOT;

Please see the 'Common Game Problems' section of the wiki "FNV General Mod Use Advice" article.  (You are making several of those mistakes and likely others that are not obvious from your "load order".)


* Do you have "New Vegas Stutter Remover" (NVSR) installed?  If so, please see the 'Issue: CTD after 10-20 minutes of play (post-Win10 2017 FCU)' and 'Issue: CTD without warning, "Out of Memory error", or stops responding after the Main Menu' entries in the 'Solutions to "Crash To Desktop" (CTD) problems' section in the wiki "Fallout NV Mod Conflict Troubleshooting" guide.  Note the default NVSR settings do not work with Win10, but there are some recommended by the author for Win10 further down in the article.

  Currently, the recommended alternative to NVSR, if you are running Win7 or Win10, is to try using the "New Vegas Tick Fix (NVTF)" mod instead.  However, until NVTF includes the option, you may want to continue to use NVSR for the "iThreadsFixedToCPUs" setting.  However, use of NVSR along with NVTF is unsupported.

If the problem persists, then work through either the 'Solutions to Starting the game problems' or the 'Solutions to "Crash To Desktop" (CTD) problems' sections in the wiki "Fallout NV Mod Conflict Troubleshooting" guide.

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.  It is designed for someone who has never played a modded PC game before, so it tries to avoid making any assumptions, is kept "up-to-date", and covers years of "lessons learned".  It is NOT a list of various mods to install that happen to work on the author's machine.  It addresses fundamentals underlying how to get the basic game and mods to work together.
