Not sure why this game hates me so much. Once again mouse acceleration just won't disable. I find it unplayable w/ it on.

Did you download it via Steam? If so you can try to disable the cloud saving in the steam preferences. Or what I do is open up the New Vegas launcher, then edit add the mouse info to the ini, then launch the game.

"How Can I Fix Mouse Acceleration Problems?"
The game's mouse acceleration may be annoying you. You'll have to edit a few INI files to fix this.
  • 1. Make sure Fallout / Steam is closed
    2. Navigate to My Documents\My Games\FalloutNV and set "Fallout.ini" and "FalloutPrefs.ini" to NOT Read-Only (right click each file -> properties -> UnCheck "Read-Only")
    3. Add the following to the [Controls] section of each file--
fForegroundMouseAccelBase=0
fForegroundMouseAccelTop=0
fForegroundMouseBase=0
fForegroundMouseMult=0
  • 4. Next navigate to "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas"
    5. Set "Fallout_default.ini" to NOT Read-Only and add the same lines above to the [Controls] section
    6. Next navigate to "C:\Program Files\Steam\userdata". There will be a folder here with random numbers as its name. Open it, then sort by last modified (right click folder -> "arrange icons by" -> "last modified"). Open the MOST RECENTLY modified folder that is NOT "config".
    7. Make sure "falloutprefs.ini" is NOT Read-Only, and edit it just as you did with the previous INI files.

Step 4 & 5 seems to have done it. Thanks.

I can't actually do steps 6 and 7 since I don't have that file in those folders. Plus I have two folders with two randomly generated numbers as their names.

EDIT: Nvm, it seems to have worked anyways.

Playing through my first time with Wild Wasteland and Hardcore mode on with Very Hard difficulty. lol! This should be interesting.

Also, I'm playing a chick with every socially manipulative trait possible.
