As promised last week, Bethesda has released a patch for the PC version of Fallout: New Vegas on Steam.

Version 1.1.1 will fix the following issues you may be experiencing with companions, DirectX, and those dreaded Debt Collectors:

  • Companions now show up as waypoints on the map
  • Companions will always fast travel with you, unless told to wait or sent away
  • Fix: DLC error/save corruption
  • Fix: Stuttering with water effects
  • Fix: Severe performance issues with DirectX.
  • Fix: Controls temporarily disabled after reloading Cowboy Repeater while crouched
  • Fixed crash using the Euclid C-Finder while having the Heave Ho perk
  • Fix: Entering the strip after Debt Collector causes crash and autosave corruption
  • Fix: Using Mojave Express dropbox can cause DLC warnings
  • Fixed crash when buying duplicate caravan cards from a vendor in a single transaction
  • Crafting menu should filter valid (bright) recipes to the top of the list
  • Fix: Sitting down while looking down a weapon’s ironsights leaves player control locked
  • Fix: If a companion is knocked unconscious with broken limbs they stay broken on respawn
  • Fix for varmint night scope effect persisting in kill cam
  • Fix for giving companions armor that adds STR does not increase their carry weight
  • Fix NPC Repair menu displays DAM as DPS
  • Having NPC repair service rifle with forged receiver decreases CND

After updating, if you’re having issues opening New Vegas, try to re-verify the files like thus:

  • Open Steam
  • Right click on Fallout: New Vegas
  • Hit Properties
  • Click the “Local Files” tab
  • Click on “Verify Integrity of Game Cache”

If that doesn’t work, delete your ini files and repeat steps 1-5.

Thanks, Evil Avatar.

    Finally fixed the DirectX issues! That was causing massive framerate drops. Luckily you could fix the problem yourself, if you knew how.

    Where are freeze fixes? Those fixes are nothing. Game freezes, crashes to desktops and on certain configurations may cause BSOD.
    I wonder if they’ll fix the main console issue – freezing. Which is inexcusable in a console game.

    so happy that the PC got the patch cause the means the 360/PS3 patch ain’t to far off, this is a really excellent game, but with all the game breaking bugs and glicthes sort made it hard at times to play, but hopefully with this patch most of those problems PC players have been fixed, and hopefully the 360/PS3 patch will fix all the problems that have plaqued the game since release, and maybe even fix some of the glitched quests

    Good to see this being supported post-launch (though I’ve spent like 40 hours with it and only had one crash so far, so it’s been pretty stable for the most part (PC-version)).

    It’s such a fun game. I’ve been doing so many fun sidequests, there’s just so much stuff to do outside of the main story. I really hope Bethesda & Obsidian will work together on more projects in the future, because this is the best game from either company in quite a while.

    shame this came too late for me since i finished it on monday. i was playing on a GTX 295 and a Q9650 3.0GHz quad core and had SUPER poor performance unless i used the fudged dx9.dll file, then i only had poor performance lol. i had dissapearing mountains and textures too but for the three weeks i played it i was totally sucked in, this game is so good you can forgive it for its temporary shortcomings.
