Now that F4SE Team repaired keyboard keys binding it is time to take for the UI and INI.

A couple useful settings for INI files.

Please note that English is not my native language.

What can you expect here:

- In time, there will be more

- You will find here settings that are not present in INI files or can not be changed using Fallout4Launcher.exe

- All setings have been tested

- They have default values

- Most of the settings explains itself (self explanatory by the variable name)

- Work for Game version 1.5.157.

What you will never find here:

- uGridsToLoad Setings and etc...

- Settings to manage game memory and etc...

- And all other setings which leads to the instability of the game

You can overwrite Fallout4.ini and Fallout4Custom.ini using INI for modification.

...\Data\MyMod.esp

...\Data\MyMod.ini

How to check that it works as I wrote?

Add in to or change below mentioned INI

...\My Games\Fallout4\Fallout4.ini

to look like this:

[Archive]
bInvalidateOlderFiles=1
sResourceDataDirsFinal=
Add in to:

...\My Games\Fallout4\Fallout4Custom.ini

[Archive]
bInvalidateOlderFiles=0
sResourceDataDirsFinal=
Download MUS_MainTheme.xwm, unpack and copy in to ...Data\Music\Special\ (this file contains silence, XWM responsible for the Main Menu Music)

So when you add entries in to Fallout4.ini confirming/ordering using of "Lose Files" we should not hear the sound of the piano in the Main Menu.

Unless, you add in to Fallout4Custom.ini entry prohibiting use of "Lose Files".

ArchiveInvalidation!

This allows you to place anything as "Loose Files" in ...Data\

Now all SWF files work without a problem, even font swapping is not a problem now. (Meshes, Tekstures, Strings, etc...)

And most importantly loading time decreases drastically compared to the "old" method, if you are using a large amount of "Loose Files".

There is no need to add:

, TEXTURES\, MUSIC\, SOUND\, INTERFACE\, MESHES\, PROGRAMS\, MATERIALS\, LODSETTINGS\, VIS\, MISC\, SCRIPTS\, SHADERSFX\, VIDEO\
in to:

[Archive]
sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\
Just add this variable in to INI for "Loose Files" to work.

Game in windowed mode.

It allows you to position the game screen on the monitor in the window mode.

You have a 1080p monitor, but a weak graphics card. It is better to run the game at a lower resolution than 1080.

But then either we are stretching for example 900p -> 1080p this gives a deplorable consequences, causing everything looks ugly and blurry.

It is better to run the game in window mode but then the game window will be in the corner of the screen and without the use of third-party applications there nothing we can do.

Is history now.

For 1080p monitor and game in 900p. (iLocation X=1920-1600/2) (iLocation Y=1080-900/2)

With these settings, game window will be centered on the monitor screen.

MNelson who is doing Fallout Performance Monitor gave me the following tip :

 


Also, thought you might find this interesting:

http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/808/?

The "bForceUpdateDiffuseOnly=0" really makes a big impact on VRAM usage and texture quality.

 

Default setting is bForceUpdateDiffuseOnly=1

 

On the nexus page MNelson links there are other settings related to this which limit the distances at which this happens ..

.. But I have seen one comment where those settings made one users machine use over 3gb of VRAM

 

So I would say use with care and test with FPM - I havent tried it yet, I dont currently see a need for it, and I am guessing this is probably a bunch of settings that over time Bethesda will probably fine tune in the game launchers detect settings needed per machine.

Certainly interesting though, and one I dont think we have seen before in Skyrim or previous Fallouts

 

 

Edit : Good topic  :nerd: like what you have found out about archiveinvalidation, I reckon there are an awful lot of mods currently wrongly advising the old include resource list method for loose files

Hello Roy,

 

"Fix Mouse lag"

 

What do you say to that?

Xmd31jPl.jpg

 

Try this: delete entry  [bUseMouseAcceleration] leave [iPresentInterval=0] limit frame rate to 60 or 59 in driver and you'll see that [bUseMouseAcceleration] it is a placebo.

 

Also large part of the settings that exist in the standard ini files which feeds us Beth is garbage.

Fallout4Launcher.exe is a mockery and unnecessary trash for advanced user and it is time for people to realize this, game itself can generate INI in ...My Games\Fallout4\ and ..Data\

 

Do so:
Remove/Backup both INI files from ...My Games\Fallout4\Fallout4.ini and Fallout4Prefs.ini

Remove/Backup all INI files from game folder ...Fallout 4\Low.ini, Medium.ini, High.ini, Ultra.ini, Fallout4_Default.ini and from ...Fallout 4\Fallout 4\Fallout4Prefs.ini

Remove/Backup from game folder Fallout4Launcher.exe

Run FO4 through F4SE ONLY do not start the game through STAEM.

The game starts in windows mode 1280x720.

In Main Menu in the console, type "SaveINI" and exit from the game.

Now you have all the original INI settings it game has 2120 entry as far as I remember. (One file save in ...Data\Fallout4.INI and second in ...My Games\Fallout4\Fallout4Prefs.ini)

Unpolluted by Fallout4Launcher.exe and mistakes/garbage provided by Beth in default INI.

However, I do not recommend use them in such form.

They can serve as references ONLY.

 

 

 

By the end of the week I should be able to finish article that will update this topic and prove that's what I just writes and that quite a few entries what exists in both original ini is not needed or not working trash. ( Just as in FO3, FNV, OBL, SKY )

@Gruftlord

Thank you for this information.

 

Also helped me a lot data "mined" directly from EXE.

As I have written they can be used as references ONLY whether a entry exists. (bUseMouseAcceleration for example)

Game started with INI obtained as I described is unstable even more then Batman Arkham Knight :troll:

 

EDIT

I began to verify all values for entry which I "mined out" from game ( console and directly from EXE ) as in my above post.

Hey, just thought I'd let you know that you are slightly mistaken about Fallout4Custom.ini in the above post. You say it can overwrite Fallout4Prefs.ini based on your testing of the bInvalidateOlderFiles setting. But that assumes that bInvalidateOlderFiles is a valid setting in Fallout4Prefs.ini. It is not. While all settings are valid in Fallout4.ini and Fallout4Custom.ini, not all settings are valid in Fallout4Prefs.ini. Fallout4Prefs.ini will overwrite the value in Fallout4Custom.ini IF the setting is valid in Fallout4Prefs.ini.

 

An easy test is to change your screen resolution with iSize W and iSize H under display. Set it correctly in Fallout4Prefs.ini. Then set it to something low in Fallout4Custom.ini, like 800 x 600. When you load, you'll see that the resolution settings in Fallout4Prefs.ini wins.

 

To see which settings to put in Fallout4Prefs.ini versus Fallou4.ini and Fallout4Custom.ini, see my thread on STEP listing all the settings and their default values.

Today is not suitable for a logical conversation 28 hours in front of a computer makes itself felt already.

I need to regenerate rolling over to sleep.

 

 

EDIT

@Kesta

Done.

Please comments if you notice any errors.

 

@DubleYou

Thank you for the explanation how it works Fallout4Custom. ( We learn lifetime )

I added a list of entries that will not be overwritten by Fallout4Custom.
(If I understand correctly all those which are in Fallout4Prefs they will not be overwritten by Fallout4Custom)

I admit I didn't check the validity of the mouse accel, was going by Skyrim since I didn't think it changed.

 

fScopeScissorAmount doesn't seem to work in the engine anymore even if the setting is there, this time it is fDefaultFOV which has the effect of changing the scope overlays.

 

I have chosen an fDefault1stPersonFOV of 110 and fDefaultFOV of 80 , seems to be the corresponding settings to get it to look right.

 

fDefaultWorldFOV seems to be placebo and has no effect on anything I could find while I was testing.

 

As for dumping settings and ini's I already know how to do that, but thanks for posting it for other people.

I seem to recall that some of the FOV settings in Skyrim would not propperly update in an existing save. Only a new game (or some trick to force the fov recalculation) would show whether the setting works and how it looked. I'll try to find the mod in question this evening.

At least in Skyrim, the FOV is part of the save.  As long as your INI file is correct all you have to do to update the FOV in your current save is open the console and do 'fov 90' or whatever value you have set in your INI.  Then once you save it will be fine from that point on.

If someone made a mod to separate them that would be nice to know which it is, I can't find it on the nexus.

 

I made a mod for this for New Vegas, and it has other features like adjusting IS FOV depending on your settings, as well as pipboy and terminal fov, and a few other things like dialogue and IS zoom time. I was hoping to bring this mod to Fallout 4 eventually, but looks like a lot of it is done through scaleform which I haven't got the skills to change. Anyways getting off topic here...

 

There are plenty of other settings which seem interesting, I haven't had time to experiment with them yet. Looking forward to any more people find useful.

Lot of great info in this post thank you.

 

No one seems to be able to help me with this problem I'm having though. Is there any ini settings I can change or add to make the ingame notification message box in the left upper corner stay on the screen longer? Seems Bethesda has it set for 2-5 seconds and I most always miss the whole message.

 

Thank you

The only way to increase / decrease time to display them is to edit them in xEdit.

For example Information about the fact that Piper did not like something you did.

 

0002B737 <CA_Piper_Dislikes>

 

Edit "TNAM - Display Time" default value is 2, so information will be displayed for two seconds.

By changing the value to 10 makes that information will be displayed for ten seconds.

Thank you for the reply. I already knew about editing TNAM but I thought I could do something global with an ini.

I tried to extend Pipers dislikes, hates, likes and loves notification length of time from 2 to 10 but I failed.

 

1> I copied all four EDID - Editor ID CA_Piper_xxxxxx's as copy as override into new file

2> Changed TNAM - Display Time from 2 to 10

 

Ran game didn't change length of notification time

 

3> I changed DESC - Discription to Elektra, Likes what you did. to see if esp was being seen whick worked so I know the esp is working.

 

Is there anything else I need to edit?

 

Thank you

Thanks for all the useful info. Any chance of a setting for getting the pip-boy geek to go away during the workshop mode? The little bastard keeps telling me to build a radio recruitment tower and I swear to God, if I could, I'd drag him out onto the floor and beat him to death. Yeah... I've probably been playing this game too much.
