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.
