Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I was always a fool for my Johnny, and FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS

    We know who NMA are, we don't need to discuss them

    It gets up everyone's nose, especially Tube's, and the state of Tube's nose concerns us all

    it boggles my mind that there are entire fansites dedicated to hating everything about games or a game series that they supposedly love

    but hey hey, internet age

    This cursor drives me nuts.

    I can't select anything in the menus at all.

    this is actually one of the only issues I've encountered

    it's just too fast in the menus, like, it accelerates too quickly, and turning down the sensitivity makes it slower on the whole but doesn't seem to alter the acceleration

    I've gotten used to it, mostly, but it's still sluggish in-game and hard to use in the menus

    There is a fix for this, it's in the link posted in the OP. Go to the link and look for the solution for "mouse acceleration" or whatever. You just have to copy/paste a few lines into the .ini file and you're all set.

    I did it and it worked like a charm.

    e: And I was beated by a miiiiile. That's what I get for alt-tabbing and not refreshing the page for like 10 minutes.

    also I broke down a bunch of bullets to make some 5.56mm ammo and was all set to go and then it was like, congrats, you made one (1) bullet

    thx game, using it to shoot myself

    Heheheh, yeah you have to have "cases" for the bullets you want to make.

    I broke down a bunch of scrap metal to make lead, then broke down all my 9mm since I wanted to switch to 10mm machine gun instead... whoops no cases... So now I have like 9999 "lead"s (which thankfully don't weigh anything...) and a shitbutt load of pistol powder..

    Also someone make a new threaddd

    yeah, it was definitely one ingredient that was my bottleneck, I had plenty of cases, it might have been small rifle powder (?), but either way, now I have 5000 lead and hardly any ammo

    I just took scrounger, hopefully things will start looking up on that front

    Man I dunno what it is but the more I play this game the more it just pisses me off to be playing the game.

    Invisible walls.

    There are invisible walls EVERYWHERE in the southern part of the map. I can't tell if they put them there so you can't skip Nipton or what but I'm getting really pissed trying to navigate around the area and hitting invisible walls at the top of a hill I can easily climb.

    Also in the REPCONN HQ whats the deal with the hidden door? I found two of them and when I hover over them I get the option to "Open Hidden Door" - when I try to "open" the door it only gives me the option to jam it shut?

    I made the mistake of attempting a Scorpion Gulch crossing rather than go throw Nipton.

    Good thing I wasn't married to that idea.

    Entered Scorpion Gulch at level 7 with 300+ 9mm rounds


    Exited at level 9 with a nearly broken machete

    just don't follow the road, go through the dry lake instead

    I don't find invisible walls as much as cliffs or rock faces that are just a little bit too steep to climb... I guess. Guess they wanted people following the roads.

    Apparently how they "fixed" the autosave problem in Steam was to disable the cloud feature... Bummer, I installed this at work and expected to be able to load my saves... but I can't. Guess I'll have to drag them over manually?

    so, how long is this game
    compared to say, vanilla fo3

  • LanglyLangly Registered User regular
    edited October 2010
    It depends on how long you want to do side quests and such, just like fo3. It is long long long though.

  • DichotomyDichotomy Registered User regular

    if you did "main quest" stuff and only main quest stuff around fifteen hours

    but just wandering around doing whatever quests you feel like and exploring the wastes and such there's probably three to four times that

    Take the road heading to Nellis and just hug the hillside to the left until you get to the fence and hug that until the entrance.

    Maybe his job is QA tester for New Vegas. They just hired him yesterday.

    I contracted a team of QA testers outside Baltimore, just down the street from Bethesda. While I was there I noticed at the time they were testing parts of Fallout 3, early builds.

    If Bethesda kept them as testers, I am not at all surprised the issues that are present made it through.


    They made little mistakes on my shit like, "3 Week Transaction count is QA PASS"


    20 mins later


    "Well, except for Visa. Those counts aren't present, Priority 2 issue."


    Next day.


    "Visa transactions aren't processing at all. Transaction fails at Authentication Handshake. Priority 1 issue."


    30 mins later


    "Downgrade to NOTANISSUE, tester didn't run Visa transaction across 3 week period. Visa testing beginning."


    45 mins later


    "Visa transaction fails at....."



    I had to fly up there WEEKLY to untangle bullshit procedural issues.
