fallout 2 - Micro-stutter for PC players and an easy way to help us keep it fixed. (Plus I share what has helped others fix theirs... momentarily anyway)

Not sure if Bethesda is still updating Fallout 4 or not, but the only thing I wish to post here real quick and discuss is the in game V-Sync implementation. I'm sure that many other PC players have been noticing that sometimes when playing this game, as you move about the Commonwealth, you'll begin to suffer an odd, "input lag" where you'll experience an odd form of jarring movement. Even when standing still and looking at the ground, the stutter can still happen.

Many users on PC in steam forums have found solutions for this, such as switching your PC from full-screen to Windowed Borderless mode. This works for some, but for me it wasn't enough. I still had the micro-stuttering. (Which many tend to use as the official term for it.) Upon further inspection, I found many others mention that this is in most part caused by V-Sync or G-Sync. And being that many of the games core engine processes are tied to frame-rate (as most easily identified by the Fallout 76 "flash" speed exploit by looking at the ground) it caused input lag in the form of this micro-stutter.

Now you can fix this on PC easily by going to your Files, my SSD is my :C/ drive. I followed these steps:

  1. Open :C/ drive
  2. Go to file listed "Users" and open the file
  3. Now click on the profile named by your Profile, if using your name, it'll be displayed there, like mine.
  4. Open the Folder listed "Documents"
  5. Open folder listed "My Games"
  6. You should see a file listed as "Fallout4"
  7. In the folder, you'll see a file (or files) named "Fallout4Prefs.ini" Open that folder(s) with notepad (or whatever else you may use)
  8. Find the line in this file listed as shown "iPresentInterval=1" This is the line within the .ini file that enables/disables V-Sync. All you have to do is change the line from iPresentInterval=1 to iPresentInterval=0. Press Save, then exit. Boom. V-Sync disabled.

However, its not a permanent fix. Anytime you enter your in-game settings menu and make changes to the following:

  • Difficulty
  • Volumes
  • Key Bindings
  • HUD color
  • Pip-Boy Color
  • Subtitles
  • Fade Distance

The game will automatically turn V-Sync back on, and your micro-stutter issue will return. This is why I'm hoping that if Bethesda were to see this. Maybe they could put out a REALLY tiny update that adds in a little menu option in the settings itself that will allow us to disable V-Sync without the need to do it manually each time we mess with the settings. It'd be one of the best quality of life updates for PC users with the tiniest of changes. And, from then on, with it being implemented like most other settings, it wouldn't reset each time we make a change and keep it off if we want to change a setting on the fly! Win-win!

Duly note, it is reported that those with really high end PC's that can reach FPS of higher than 60 FPS will break past that point and the game will begin to bug out horrendously due to the increased Frame-rate. You'll need a way to lock your frames to being at the most 60 frames per second unless you want to watch your game literally "go ape s**t."

I've heard of two programs that can be downloaded for free for the different main-stream video cards out there. Nvidia Inspector is what you'd use to limit your frames for Nvidia users. And MSI Afterburner for AMD card users.

Just to be clear, this isn't a fool proof fix for the issue. Even if you still do this, you may still have the issue. At that point I wouldn't know what to tell you except, bad luck I guess. Good luck to y'all, hope your games are running smooth!
