  1. Finished the edits, thank you! Hopefully I didn't break anything, but I won't guarantee it since I'm old and make dumb mistakes sometimes.

    To be clear I removed the uGrids, Cell Buffer, most of the multithreading and iPreloadSizeLimit tweaks.


    uGrids, the game is hardcoded all over to expect this setting to be the default 5, altering it causes a myriad of issues and can/will corrupt saves.

    Cell Buffers , again the engine expects hard coded values, and there is absolutely no evidence that they relate to uGrids at all, absolute nonsense.

    Multithreading tweaks, the variables are never referenced in the engine therefore placebo. I did leave the Multithreaded AI one is valid, same with iNumHWThreads, these values are used but have little effect outside stability on more recent OS's than XP.

    iPreloadSizeLimit = This tweak is comical, it sets the bink video playback buffer size. Increasing it actually reduces the amount of ram the game can use for other assets.


  2. The Fallout creation kit wikis have full lists of variables, problem is most of them are not safe to tweak outside of graphics ones, or are placebo (there but not referenced in the code ever). The reverse engineers and expert modders have been trying for years to fix the disinformation presented in these articles, it's very hard to to fix it once it spreads. I would like to see this curbed if possible.

  3. I'm not hot on any subscription services, and I think Microsoft already has theirs on steam do they not? I would like to sync my games between Steam and Origin though, especially my older titles.

    I wonder if EA will start opening up it's back catalog and making these games compatible with modern operating systems since SafeDisc support has been patched out of Vista/7/8/8.1 and never existed in 10. I own a huge amount of EA's back catalog and I'd really love it if they did this. My expectations are low though many publishers on steam never bother, and XP only games on steam are still available for purchase and they can't be played.

  4. I've been a gamer for some 40 years now, and the main reason I don't finish a game is that it's just not engaging enough to want to finish it. Some games are great and keep me going for years (Fallout 3/NV) and some I don't even play for more than a couple of hours (Prey reboot, Rage 2). It was never about the story or graphics (especially considering I loved Adventure on the Atari 2600) it's always about the fun factor. If something isn't fun, I won't play it to completion.
