v1.0.0 - Feedback & Bug Reports

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am happy to say the mod list is very easy to follow, at least for someone familiar with the procedures. I've run into a problem after installing the CR patch however. According to MO, it requires an esp from the "Helmet Overlay" mod despite that mod only containing an esm.

I realize this list is brand new so there are probably several small tweaks incoming. Thank you for your time, I understand how much work this all takes!

As a temporary fix, creating a copy of the Helmet Overlay esm and changing the extension to esp seems to work.

@Majorman is out until next week I think, but @Greg was helping him validate this build, so he may have some suggestions for you or the guide instructions.

@sailor_silicaI am indeed away from my PC for about a week, but I've taken note on the issue. From what I've seen thus far, Helmet Overlay was updated on 14 September and its esp got updated to an esm. Thus I will have to update the CR Patch to reflect this. Would you like to test out the new CR Patch when it gets ready? 

Luckily for you, judging from the comments section of Helmet Overlay, renaming the esm to esp should not make a difference. 

Edit: I would recommend using version 1.6.3 of Helmet Overlay as a fallback for the time being (until I update the patch) . Can anyone suggest how to download older versions of mods via the new "File Archive" function of Nexus? I can't get to a download screen on my phone, but there should be a way.

At the bottom of all Mod page > File pages, there will be an "Archived" button that will  reveal any archived (old) versions .. I think the caveat is that the Archive system had to be up before a mod was deleted. Looks like this one has a bunch of options, and 1.6.3 is at the bottom:

@z929669, @sailor_silicaI have found an older (beta) version of the CR Patch on my Google drive. My memories (and the readme) show it must be independent of Helmet Overlay - so it should not screw up the whole Step setup due to having a master file that no longer exists. I have named this version a "Quick Fix" as I don't have access to my gaming PC at the moment and cannot provide a better resolution. 

Pros:

  • this version should not look for HelmetOverlay.esp and will not crash your whole Step setup.
  • It will give me time to adapt the CR patch to work with the latest version of Helmet Overlay.

Cons:

  • It does not support Helmet Overlay and the NV Interiors Project currently.

I would appreciate it if sailor_silica or @Gregcan confirm that I've indeed uploaded the version that's independent on Helmet Overlay as I have no way to confirm it from my wife's laptop. If that's not the case, I guess we will have to wait till I get back and remove those entries via xEdit.

I'm back from my vacation and have properly "fixed" the CR patch to include all features except the extended Helmet Overlay support (so that it will no longer look for Helmet Overlay.esp when the plugin was changed to an .esm in the latest version of the mod). I will attempt to re-add the Helmet Overlay support shortly, but the mod  author changed the way overlays are implemented (via a .txt file rather than FormID list edits) and I will need some time to test it out.

Also updated the install instructions on Helmet Overlay's Step Wiki Page. There are 2 extra steps added.

Thanks everyone for their patience.

Hi guys and thanks for all the work you do here. Unfortunately I have a problem for the first time since using step back form Oblivion.

FNV only loads into the loading screen, no text but music is playing. I started the whole process from the start to make sure I didn't miss something. I went through each section and enable all mods in a section and loaded FNV, all worked fine until I enabled the FNVCRP, then it fails to load. Help please guys.

@Majorman

Sorry I've been away a bit myself. The updated patch seems to work perfectly. I'll keep my eyes peeled for future updates and should be able to respond a tad faster in the future. Thanks!

I will re-upload the CR Patch with the experimental Helmet Overlay fix later today. Please try the latest version when I do, then report back on your results. Hopefully , it should fix your issue.

Edit: the update is available for download. It re-implements the Helmet Overlay support. I have updated the mod version on the Nexus, so everyone that has downloaded the patch should be notified that there's an update available.

I installed the updated file and the game loaded into the main screen ok. I then realised I forgot to run LOOT.

I ran LOOT and then I had the same problem as before. If I put the patch last the game loads fine. After running LOOT it puts the patch 6th from bottom. eg

Step Fallout NV CR Patch.esp

OWB-Path Lights.esp
Simple Interior Lighting.esp
FNVLODGen.esp
tmzLODadditions.esp
Altitude.esp

 

EDIT: Just to test where the game failed to load I ran LOOT again and moved the patch up in the load order one place at a time and ran the game after each move until the patch was back in the place LOOT put it and the game loaded every time. No idea now, the games seems to be working.

When it fails to load, are you starting new or loading a save? These issues can always come from a save game that depends on different plugins or load order. Always test by launching a new game to be sure.

OK understood, and thanks.

Having said that, would it be ok to use one of the alternate start mods so I don't have to go through the whole vault start again?

That should work fine, but @Majorman will need to confirm to be certain. You should just install and enable it and sort with LOOT to test. You can simply disable it in MO if there are problems.

EDIT: to be safe, use it only for testing and disable afterward (until Majorman confirms). Always sort your mods whenever plugins are added/removed/enabled/disabled

      Hello,
      I am currently modding New Vegas and using the current STEP NV guide (not fear and loathing). I've installed almost everything exactly as specified in the guide with a few deviations mainly involving armor and body mods (I'm using Type4 instead or Type3) and I installed New Vegas Redesigned 3 Revised over FCO and did not install it's attendant mods (last few edits, bug fixes).
      The issue I am experiencing is with the Altitude weather mod. With the mod installed the New Vegas strip looks like for lack of a better word, a super nova. From the outside and inside it is so bright it is almost white. If i disable Altitude it looks normal. I not sure what settings or conflicting mods could be causing this. I am not using an ENB or any kind of visual effects except what the guide has in it. The mod page on the nexus has a sticky telling people to enable full dynamic range and calibrate their monitors if they have brightness issues. I have done both and it has not made any difference I can see. Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated, otherwise I may have to ditch the mod which would be a shame as it looks fantastic everywhere else in game.
      Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
      Here are some screenshots for reference

      I recently installed the latest Wyre Bash update, 310 Beta 1. I installed it because whenever I would try to save my Bashed Patch esp for Fallout: New Vegas, I would get this particular error message, and the patch itself does not save.
      "< not supported between instances of 'nonetype' and 'int'".
      It would also not register the masters for the patch in the screen section  beside the load order. I have reinstalled Wyre Bash, I have also deleted the previous patch (Which also had the same error), and I don't know what else to do in this case. U have some coding knowledge, but I think it won't help here.
      What should I do? I have attached a screenshot below of the error messsage itself and how no masters show up in the section for them in the GUI.
