I just downloaded the latest version of TTW and installed it this weekend. I've tried to use TTW in the past but always had issues with it crashing. And this weekend has not been any different.
Before I go any further, let me be clear about the fact that I have a lot of custom mods in my FNV setup. One of the recommendations is to strip TTW down to its bare essentials, but that kinda ruins the whole point of it for me. The reason I want to get TTW working is to get it to work with the mods that I have for FNV. If the only option is to run TTW without other mods, I'd rather go back to the heavily modded FO3 version that I have.
And just to be clear, I'm not complaining about a problem with TTW. I am perfectly willing to accept that it may be crashing because of my mod setup. That said, I'm hoping someone can help with this particular crash.
I've had FO3 for years, but never played Operation Anchorage. I've done all of the other DLC and the rest of the game, but never got around to Anchorage before. So, I played through that, and didn't have any issues. Then I started a new character, put some more tweaks in to hack TTW into my custom start mod for FNV (a mod I created myself). I have no idea if the custom start mod is related to the problem or not. Anyway, I started TTW and didn't have any problem as a baby, until Dad takes me out into the hallway. Then TTW crashed. I think this is related to me using a custom race. No biggie. I modified my start mod to skip the baby part and the birthday party and go right to Vault 101 when all of the alarms go off. And it still crashed. And digging through the GECK I discovered that there is still a call to set the player's age, which again I think borks due to me having a custom race. So I modified it again to dump me out at the entrance to Vault 101. I may go back and tinker with that later, but for now, that worked.
At least it worked until I got to Megaton. I went into the bar, talked to Gob, etc. then as it was getting late, I tried to wait until the next morning. And the game crashed. Playing around with it, I discovered that it seems to crash at midnight in game time. I could wait until 11:30 or so, but at the next hour tick, the game crashed.
I have a vague recollection that some of the vendor replenishment scripts run at midnight, game time. I think. Does anyone know what these are?
Does anyone know any other reason why this might be crashing?
And again, just to be clear, I am perfectly willing to admit that it may be my combination of mods that is causing the issue. I would just like to know where it is crashing so that I can hopefully figure out a workaround. And if someone knows why it is crashing and knows how to fix it, that would be even better.
Thanks in advance for any help.
In case it is important, Windows 10, Steam version of FNV (heavily modded), TTW installed from GOTY version of FO3. My version of FO3 is heavily modded, but I copied an unmodified version of FO3 that I had saved for the TTW install.
