Text on Menu is Cutoff

Question

https://imgur.com/a/6cskG

 

I just started the guide yesterday and have finished up the Core UI mods and am at the point where Vault Boy says to boot up the game. I am pretty sure I have done everything right and everything the guide says, but the text is cutoff in the menu and acting a bit weird in-game.

 

It likely is a case of me doing something wrong rather than not doing something, but I am unsure. I did all the DarnUI stuff and DarnUI patches etc.

 

Also, I should always launch FOSE from Mod Organizer if I want to play the game correct?

The "DarnUI Support for FWE" doesn't show up in the left pane of MO in the screenshot image and it should if it is installed in the correct place. The installation order and the instructions in the guide take care of putting the mods in the correct order for use with UIO. I tried to avoid putting a detailed explanation of what UIO does into the guide, but I did revise some installation instructions (especially for aHUD) to eliminate some problems that users seem to have all too frequently. The "DarnUI Support for FWE" files, especially "menus\main\hud_main_menu.xml", need to be installed where the guide says since this is the primary menu template file that UIO will detect and modify. This isn't an issue with INI files; UIO (and Unified HUD that used to be in the guide) need to be able to find (and then modify) the proper version of "menus\main\hud_main_menu.xml". After the game has started at least once with UIO installed you will find extra lines  that start with "include" added to this file near the bottom.

You forgot the "DarnUI Support for FWE" file that should be installed just before Adjustable HUD as per the guide. This is an optional file in the FWE mod, but it is installed after the FWE mod. This is likely to be the cause of your problem.

I don't believe so. I downloaded the "Darn UI Support for FWE" file when downloading the other FWE files, but then installed it at the point in the guide where it is mentioned right before aHUD. Any recommendations?

 

Thanks for fast feedback btw.

Is this happening only in the main menu or is it happening all over the game? If it is just the main menu then one file is overriding the Darnified UI menu file. If it is the entire game then that means that UIO is for whatever reason not injecting the Darnified UI fonts when you launch the game via NVSE. While I am not an expert when it comes to Fallout 3, I think this might happen if UIO is not being given the correct permissions to modify a certain file. In this case that would be the Fallout.ini file. While this has never happened to me, I have read it happening to others. You may wish to try going into [Mod Organizer>Profiles>Your Profile] and just double checking that the Fallout.ini file is not set to "read only." That is the only idea I have right now and if I come up with anything else I will let you know.

This was indeed the solution.

 

But I am confused, as it says in the INI Tweaks section to set them as read only?

I believe that it merged with DarnUI or FWE....possibly. But the UI and everything appears to be fine in-game, so maybe it is alright? I don't really understand the rest of what you said, being the newb that I am, sorry.  :blush:

 

All I know is that I followed the guide exactly, so I did all the extra steps with 'aHUD' and whatnot.

 

I made the INI's in my MO profiles read only

Installed 'DarnUI Support for FWE' right before 'aHUD' and I possibly merged the 'DarnUI Support for FWE' with either DarnUI or FWE (if i recall correctly)

Started game and UI messed up

Unchecked the read only setting for the INIs in all my MO profiles

UI and HUD worked fine

Don't merge the  "DarnUI Support for FWE" mod with the rest of FWE; that is why it has it's own spot in the install order. If the UI is OK (make sure to check aHUD functionality to move menus) then don't worry about it for now.

      This is a beta of [FNV|FO3|FO4|FO4VR|TES5|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERAL|ENDERALSE]LODGen/Edit with terrain LOD meshes and textures generation.
      This is for experienced mod authors and users that know how to use xEdit, xLODGen or DynDOLOD already.
      Installation and Setup
      Download
      xLODGen beta 86 - based on 4.1.4b
      Unzip into a dedicated folder outside of any Steam, game or mod manager folders or special Windows folders like Program Files.
      Rename xLODGen.exe to [game mode]LODGen.exe (TES5LODGen.exe for example) or start with command line parameter -fnv, -fo3, -fo4, -fo4vr, -tes5, tes5vr, -sse, -enderal, -enderalse
      Use -o:"c:\OutputPath\" command line parameter to change where files are generated to, default is the game folder.
      Do not generate into any game or any mod manager folders.
      Requirements
      Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 - Required by LODGen.exe/LODGenx64.exe and Texconv.exe/Texconvx64.exe. Get matching platform x86/x64 depending on which xLODGen.exe (x86) or xLODGenx64.exe (x64) is used.
      RTFM and Share Results
      See the included Skyrim-Occlusion-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions or give feedback in the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread.
      See the included Terrain-LOD-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the settings for terrain LOD generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions about terrain LOD in this thread for a more in-depth explanation if required and share feedback (with screenshots) about results or problems.
      These tools generate LOD meshes and textures "exactly" like CK, but not like the meshes and textures which are shipping with the games (they are often manually edited).
      However, these tools provide more options and higher resolutions (use the x64 version if there are memory errors because you believe you require 4k or higher) and can be updated to add more useful features and options.
      I did some testing in the different games, but finding the best combinations of options and settings requires lots of testing and are a matter of personal opinion and which game is used, the load order, mods, even different worldspaces probably.
      That means, I am only able to give generic guidelines and hints to send you off to find and test for yourself and share your results. My main interested is that generations works correctly and without problems for now.
      Check out the thread xLODGen Terrain Settings Compare. Also refer to any modding guide which has a list of relevant mods close to your load order.
      The object and tree LOD generation is the same as the current versions of xEdit / xLODGen. Refer to their respective descriptions and explanations.
      Obviously, users of Skryim/Enderal/Skyrim SE/Skyrim VR/EnderalSE continue to use the easier and more comprehensive DynDOLOD for drastically improved object and tree LOD generation and only use xLODGen for terrain LOD (and maybe Occlusion) generation.
      First Time
      Here are suggestion to start without going crazy and that should be quick enough to generate:
      Set quality of meshes for LOD4 to 5 and then +5 for each next level. Or just set levels 8/16/32 to 10.
      Check protect cell borders (yes it fixes the ugly terrain drops at outer cell borders that still exist in Fallout 4).
      Use the max vertices setting only if you want to hard limit max file size.
      In Skyrim Special Edition or Skyrim VR, if you notice terrain briefly flickering when new areas are loading in, set [Display] bEnableLandFade=0 in Skyrim.INI
      Set Optimize Unseen to off for LOD4 for first generation. Start experimenting with a value of 550 with a quality setting of 10 or lower for LOD32 (used for map) and compare coastlines and file size to other settings.
      To quickly generate terrain LOD meshes just for the map, check only terrain LOD Meshes, check the Specific Chunk checkbox and set drop down to 32. Leave SW fields empty for complete map or set SW cell coordinates to same values as a *.btr filename to test a specific area with lots of water, river etc.
      Set texture sizes to 512 for a start. Larger sizes and large world spaces will take a considerable time (like 15 to 30 minutes or more easily). Each higher resolution means quadruple the work.
      Use DXT1 for diffuse and 565 (DXT1 if on Windows 7) for normal maps. If generating for Skyrim Special Edition use BC7. Uncheck mipmaps, raise steepness and Bake normal maps.
      For now, leave the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma at 0 and 1.0 respectively. It seems that only Skyrim CK and Skyrim SE CK are manipulating the intensity of the textures to adjust for the noise.dds and the god awful "improved" snow shader of Skyrim SE (just turn that thing off, really). If textures seem too dark in the game, brighten the noise.dds instead or vice versa. That way you can get perfectly matching LOD textures that look just like the textures in the loaded cells. For Skyrim a good average color of the noise texture seems to be around #C0. See below for a couple noise texture downloads.
      If you want to test larger texture sizes, use the chunk option to limit the number of textures that need to be generated. For example, check [x] Specific chunk, leave the drop down empty and set WS to the lower left cell coordinate of an 32x32 area, like 0, 0. It will then generate all textures up to 31,31. Not all worldspaces have their origin at 0,0 so you will have to check already generated meshes/texture filenames for their lower left coordinates.
      Questions and Feedback
      Obliviously anything related to terrain LOD should be posted in this thread.
      Posts related to Occlusion should be made here.
      Recommended Optionals
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega)
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega) - These extend the sea of ghost further to the north (see screenshots)
      SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Full-Extend.esm (Mega) - Entire map from -96,-96 to 95,96 with northern ocean extension. Useful for mod authors.
      Put in game data folder obviously. Adds back terrain for Skyrim (Tamriel worldspace) at the outer edges so there is no missing terrain meshes/textures when generating terrain LOD for Skyrim.
      Load as early with lowest priority as possible, so that any other plugins overwriting or adding land records or cells with the same coordinates take precedence.
      Only required to be loaded when generating terrain LOD. No harm done when loaded in-game but typically the player can not get close to these areas. There are no effects outside the far away added cells.
      Noise
      Single color flat noise, Adjusted vanilla noise, HD Terrain Noise Texture SE
      Examples for Skyrim. Install to game folder like any other texture mod. The noise texture is applied in-game on top of terrain LOD textures, so no effect for LOD generation.
      Only the red channel is used in case the textures is not a grey channel format. MipMaps are ignored. The textures is tiled 3x3 per LOD quad, e.g. for LOD level 4, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 4 cells, for LOD level 8, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 8 cells and so on.
      Test-Terrain-Tamriel.7z
      For testing terrain LOD distances. Plain color terrain LOD textures for Tamriel with coordinates for every LOD quad. Green for LOD 4, yellow for LOD8, blue for LOD 16 and red for LOD 32.

      Lucas Simms himself is missing his arms. I can see his gloves but his actual arms are invisible. I can't even begin to imagine what the fluff could be causing that. I did have issues with .32 and Mausers having big red exclamation marks but that's because it REQUIRES (listed in mod guide as optional) the individual weapon remakes. 

      Springvale Sewers, a AWOP location crashes consistently when I try to enter it.
