I need help! Previously, NV would crash maybe once every now and then. But ever since I started doing the quests at Big Mountain, it's started crashing back to the desktop more and more frequently.
It happens almost exclusively when going through loading screens - either when walking through doors or fast-traveling. I've gotten in the habit of saving before every door or fast traveling now out of fear that the game will crash, and I'm usually right!
Here's some stuff that might be helpful:
I've got a run-time of around 67 hours on the clock. My character's level 37. I have the Nexus mod app installed and one mod implanted in the game (some sexy outfits for my gal.) I'm running NV on a quad core machine with 8 GB RAM.
Recently my friend and I transplanted the hard drive (which already had a legit Windows 7, along with my Steam client and Fallout:NV already installed) into a different tower, along with an upgraded video card (GeForce GTX 460, a step up from a GTX 260). I've also got an older Creative Labs sound card in this box but with a generic Kx sound driver. I have a surround sound system hooked to the desktop as well. I transferred my New Vegas save file from my notebook when I started using the desktop. I've been running the performance settings on ultra-high.
Here's the thing, though: we did all that transplanting a week ago, when I was in the middle of playing through "Honest Hearts," and I had NO problems whatsoever with New Vegas throughout this past week. This frequent crashing didn't start happening until last night, when I started heavily playing Old World Blues. NV crashed twice last night, and this afternoon it just keeps getting worse, happening over and over again.
So what should I do? Are there some technical remedies I could look into, or is Old World Blues just a buggy ol' mess?
Last night, I removed the mod from the game and started NV up again. I got an annoying message saying "an object is missing from your save file" that kept popping up whenever I'd load/reload, but the crashing has stopped...for now at least. I guess I can put the mod back in after OWB is over since my plan is to try and do everything there is to do in the DLC anyway. Or is there a way to purify a save file so the game's not looking for a mod anymore?
that crash is quite common and easy to fix you just need to disable auto save and its done if you want more stability download mission mojave (bugfix), casm (for auto save that doesn't make crashes) and fake fullscreen (by some reason playing fullscreen makes the game crash more often) all of them are on the nexus
