Yea, when I was testing it, I had Project Reality hooked in as well. ..and ofc using the Project Reality version of Blackout.
took the .ini from that zip and put it in the main folder that holds New Vegas (where the FalloutNV.exe is) like it says in the instructions.
went into the Blackout zip, selected a quality, selected a preset, selected a "mode" or w/e u wna call that, and extracted that folder to the main folder of FNV (where the FalloutNV.exe is) like it says.
checked my Nvidia settings so that it doesn't force Antialiasing onto anything, it's AA options are as "Off" as they can be, and "Application Controlled" where they can be, switched it off in the game's launcher settings, as well as anisotropic filtering. all off. I use HDR by default, so that's on and I checked it.
than I launch the game, it says in the top left corner as the game is showing the initial screens, the Blackout info and version number and dev and all that jazz, than a warning about hardware antialiasing in yellow text (i assume that comes up no matter what, since my video card is set to off) and i load the game (i can't anymore, im reinstalling, but that's a seperate issue) and everything looks exactly the way it always had.
i hope that was specific enough
EDIT: got it working, closed. thx for the help
