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

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.

No, he's right, those shouldn't be a significant source of any crashing. Project Nevada and EVE are very well made mods. I don't use Nevada Skies as I switched to Project Reality, but perhaps try disabling that one? IIRC, it doesn't play nicely with certain mods.

I've played through it a couple times on PS3 and it hasn't screwed up yet.

Windows 8 has major compatibility issues. MS needs to learn to code better.

Its a problem on your end. Something, somewhere is incompatible. The game crashed twice for me thus far on my current playthrough (~90 hours in), compared with F3's consistent four crashes an hour.

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?


Wait, you have old mods installed? Dude, you gotta start fresh.

I can't play fallout 3 or nv on windows 8 so it could be that.
