Oh, look at that: New Vegas is an even bigger mess now than at launch.

At least when the game launched it was in sufficient state to late me play for a good 11 hours before annihilating my saves. I figured now would be a good time to give it another shot, but nope, I cannot even make it through the tutorial mission without the game crashing and burning.

After the first three crashes, I thought maybe the NVAC--the anticrash--mod might be the cause, but getting rid of it just made everything worse: now when thegame crashes, it freezes my whole PC, necessitating a hard restart.

And its not like this could be a mod issue, as I barely have any. Just the character overhaul, EVE, Project Nevada and Nevada Skies--all of which BOSS tells me should work together in harmony.

So is New Vegas this broken for everyone, or could this just be the result of a special antipathy for Windows 8?

I haven't had a single crash in the last 100 hours I've logged in NV. Most of that was on Windows 7, but a pretty big chunk was on 8/8.1.

Was just playing it today for a half dozen or so hours... Had only 1 crash and that's with a file with over 70 hours on it with all dlcs complete.

Oh look, the game is crashing like crazy for me, that means everyone else is experiencing the same problem and therefore the game is crap.

Oh look, TC is just venting and wants insight as to whether it's him or a common problem.

On Win7 I play unmodded with no crashes. At least so far.

I've got about 40 hours into it on Windows 8 with no crashes. Just one of those things that messes up for one person and works for the next in my experience.

Also, I'm using all of those, minus the character overhaul, plus about 20 others.

I have windows 8 and never had any significant crashing problems with New Vegas, even with several major mods installed.

Could care less = you care at least somewhat. Couldn't care less = you don't care at all.
