TTW system requirements

let me start off by saying i LOOOVE TTW but its brutal on my pc. i have and AMD FX8350 eight core 4Ghz with 8 gigs ram and an nvidia geforce gtx 660 ti 2gb. i should be able to play this noooo problem right? i play it on ultra of course and when unmodded except for TTW i only can get 35 fps in most areas and sometimes drop to as low as 20 fps. i dont understand... any ideas? i platy skyrim on ultra and even crysis... so why cant i play TTW on ultra? does anyone have any idea what hardware would make this run on ultra? i feel that it could be my processor not handling the load of 2 games at once but i could be wrong. please post your computers specs and let me know how TTW runs on ultra. thanks :D

First off, it is still
First off, it is still loading only one game (one engine) ... I have found that ttw actually runs smoother than the original FNV. What you need to do is go to fallout nexus and download a mod called "fallout optimized" atleast I believ that is what it's called. Follow installation directions to the tee. Don't use nmm, it is a manual install kind of mod. Also use fallout stutter remover also found at nexus. Install it manually and run once. Once it is run change it's ini file to set at 60 fps instead of 30. Btw I run this game at ultra with settings maxed out on a dual core amd phenom and a gtx 560 while running 45 ~ 60 fps. I will return to confirm that the mod I am thinking of is in fact called fallout new vegas optimized. I'm using my iPhone right now :)

Also, I am also running it
Also, I am also running it with nmc's texture mod max settings. If my computer can run smoothly with much lower specs than yours, you can run vanilla ttw at 60 fps no problem...

http://newvegas.nexusmods.com
http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/Mods/46302 This is the link fo new vegas optimized. Follow directions exactly, to reiterate you can't install with nmm or any other mod installer it has to be manually. Icalso suggest you download his high end optimization pack because you have a very powerful machine. I will be back with the link for the stutter remover... Stupid iPhone 3...

I apologize for taking up so
I apologize for taking up so much room... Stupid iPhone.... Here is the last link http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/mods/34832 Yet again a mod that needs to be installed manually, it also requires the new Vegas script extender. One more suggestion before I go. Google "fallout new vgas texture optimizer" run that as well. No it doesn't reduce the quality of your textures, just makes them easier to load and ultimately gaining you mor fps. Later

thank you very much. my

thank you very much. my vanilla TTW runs at 35-40 fps and with my game HEAVILY modded it runs exactly the same 35 fps are. i run project reality project nevada im running the enhanced shaders enb wmx, EVE, and TONS more major mods. and i have nmc's LAGRE texture pack. 7 gigs or fextures lol. and it still only dropped a few fps. maybe theres somthing conflicting in my game making it have such a low fps? idk ill try what you said and ill get back to you

Big mods like project reality

Big mods like project reality, eve, enhanced shaders, etc. have been known to drop frame rate. No way around it unless you want to stop using mods. Though there are some mods and fixes that can help. There was a thread here that featured most of them and explained which ones did and didn't work for TTW

i am surprised nobody

i am surprised nobody mentioned the 4 gig launcher also, because it sounds like he isn't using it which means the game is only asking the computer for 2 gigs of ram

You're right about that, but

You're right about that, but I guess we all figure everyone uses it so there's no need to bring it up. Great reminder.

Actually I don't use that

Actually I don't use that myself, I use a CFF Explorer and modify the engine directly so that it has a larger address than 2GB...

http://www.ntcore.com/exsuite.php

Just modify the Large Adress Aware Flag! No need for a a pesky external engine mod!

However 4GB FalloutNV is much easier to use :)

Fallout Optimizer? It is

Fallout Optimizer? It is likely that Fallout New Vegas .ini is only utilizing 4 cores, using this mod it'll show you how to set up for an 8 core cpu like yours...

Also, when it rains in

Also, when it rains in Project Reality, it severely drops fps. Easy fix is just enable then disable the enhanced FOV or whatever it's called. Haven't used PR in a while.

im at a steady 45-60 fps now

im at a steady 45-60 fps now and like i said project reality doesnt lower my fps no matter the weather lol. and the new vegas optimizer gave me an extra 15-30 fps lol i love it<3 even in downtown D.C. 50 fps man. and by the way fake fulscreen mode increased my fps by 3ish. all together the 4 gb enabler stutter remover and fake fullscreen mode i gained about 10 fps. the 4gb enabler was key for me

I'm not sure, so don't quote me on that, but I don't believe that CFF explorer works anymore...

Also, to the OP, it sounds like you may have your FPS capped somewhere. Running an ENB alone should take a good 10-15 FPS off of whatever your current is, but if it's running the same, then something's up. I'm actually sure that you have it capped somewhere, either in some app/mod, in the .ini files, in your graphics control panel, I don't know where, but somewhere.

the graphics cap is governed

the graphics cap is governed (in my case) by the stutter remover .ini and i have it capped at 50 right now cause me going up and down from 45 to 60 is  a bit much for me so i capped at 50 so it fluctuates less so its less noticeable by me

P.S. the enb drops my fps by about 3. my pc is quite powerfull :D

It doesn't work for the steam version for whatever reason, but I am not running the steam version!

Ouch... that's not a very smart thing to say here... There is no other legal version besides the Steam one...

Yeah, there is a disc version

Yeah, there is a disc version, but they ALL activate on Steam.

 

Edit: Unless I got confused here and we're actually talking about Fallout 3, in which case, yes, there is non-Steam version.

i know that but i mean you

i know that but i mean you can choose to not run it through steam. it has to be activated through steam but after that you dont need steam as soon as you install NVSE. ;)

Ah, sorry, I didn't know that you could use NVSE without Steam. But then again, I don't know much about NVSE.

 

Also, about the above, you installed Enhanced Shaders and lost only 3 FPS? LOL, wow! I know it isn't the heaviest ENB out there, but even it his me a bit harder than that. Of course, I know why. I haven't yet made room in my budget for a GPU, lol. I'm running an unfinished build right now.

ROFL!!! Yeah, I think I'm going to buy that. Why wouldn't I spend more on my GPU than every other part in my rig combined? lolol. But yeah, I plan to buy a GPU in May, I've been saving up for one of the new Tahiti based 7870s, I think that plus my i5 and 8GB of RAM should handle most games nicely.

 

Also @computerrock1, no way! That would be insanely rude to just throw around accusations of piracy. I'm not accusing you of anything, it just doesn't sound good when you say you aren't using a Steam copy of the game. I see that I just had a slight misunderstanding now. Sorry, I guess I'm just used to the iron fist of Nexus, banning people for even thinking about saying such a thing...

a 2 gig 7870 would be more

a 2 gig 7870 would be more then enough to handle any current gen game. i had a 1 gig radeon hd 7770 and i played vanilla skyrim on ultra at 30 fps so a 2 gig 7870 would easily handle any game http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/ this website will help you pick the best gpu you can get per dollar and helps you compare them to other gpus. have fun :D
