Fallout 3 - Best Borderless Windowed Mode Option?



Basically I'm curious on what others think might be the best option for a Borderless Windowed Mode in Fallout 3 - OneTweak or GameCompanion?  The main point of the borderless windowed mode is just to make things run a little more smoothly, as that's how it's usually worked for me.  When there is basically no sensation of fps for me, that's awesome.  Prior to entering the orbit of STEP and finding Kelmych's great guide, I'd used the Fake Fullscreen mod by BUDA20, and I'm leaning that way, but when a moderator recommends OneTweak as their solution, it makes me think.  Still, most of the posts I've seen have - I believe - recommended GameCompanion, and I'm curious for the recommendations people that have tried one or the other might recommend.


Edit: I do not use ENB or ENBoost and don't really plan to right now.  Nothing against it, I'm just happy with the setup I have.

After testing most of the solutions you've mentioned, and a few more, I found that OneTweak really does deliver. For full disclosure: I liked Virusek's OneTweak for Skyrim so much, I worked with him to get it adapted for FNV and FO3 and hosted them under my name on the Nexus.
